for the person wanting to make a dip

Cookessentials - this comment screams why I left this message boardfour years ago - it was your supposed 'ownership' of this recipe site and your supposed belief that you could dictate what other people posted.This isn't YOUR site or YOUR job to moderate or keep in check what other people write.Post what you want and allow other people to post their own ideas.Visiting this site again after all this time just makes me shudder - your dictating comments for one but also seeing the state of what other people cook and put into their mouths!Avocado dip can contain any rubbish you choose to put in it (as suggested in previous ideas) but gucamole contains only avocado, lime, chilli/tobasco, S&P and coriander (cilantro for those from the states).I think i'll leave this site once more but for good this time and stick to more food purist sites so cookessentials, feel free to moderate me all you want now!

And there you have it. Buzzy should come in and make +4 then your little gang will be complete.

That's how it looks to an ordinary outsider like me anyway. Disgraceful!

It's also the reason I lurk more than I post these days.

How it looks to an ordinary outsider could be very misleading LOL :)

smileeah, Jan 10, 7:12am
Could be, but if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck.chances are.

elliehen, Jan 10, 7:36am
.it's not 'gucamole' or 'tobasco' as sjsastar writes.

Am very surprised that Our Uli,ever-watchful and ever-ready to pull posters up over their English, didn't pick that up ;)

uli, Jan 10, 8:20am
As I said before I couldn't care less what you write ellie.

elliehen, Jan 10, 8:29am
And that says a whole lot more about you than it does about me.

1/3 cup white onions, finely chopped
3 to 4 serrano chiles, finely chopped, with seeds
1 teaspoon coarse salt
2 pounds ripe California avocadoes (about 4 large)
2 to 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
3/4 cup pear, peeled and finely diced
3/4 cup seedless grapes, halved
3/4 cup pomegranate seeds

Special equipment: molcajete y tojolote (mexican mortar and pestle) or food processor

In a molcajete or food processor, grind onion, chiles, and salt into a rough paste. Gradually add the avocado, coarsely mashing it (you'll want it to be chunky). Stir in the lemon juice. Fold in the pear, grapes, and 1/2 cup of the pomegranate seeds. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup pomegranate seeds over the guacamole and serve.

Makes 8 servings.

Guacamole does not have yoghurt or reduced cream in it!
For an authentic recipe it should include:-
Lime juice
Cilantro (substitute coriander)
Salt and pepper.
Nothing else!

davidt4, Dec 22, 9:58pm
Guacamole does not normally contain yoghurt, tomato sauce, reduced cream or soup mix.If you would like to make a simple clean-tasting guacamole try this:

2 ripe avocados
1/2 small onion, grated
1 - 2 hot chillies e.g. serrano, cayenne, jalapeno finely chopped
1/2 tsp salt
freshly ground black pepper
juice of 1 - 2 limes
1/4 c finely chopped coriander leaves
1 small tomato finely chopped
1 tab good quality olive oil

Mash the avocado flesh in a bowl with a fork - it should not be perfectly smooth.Add the rest of the ingredients, holding back a little lime juice, and combine well.Taste and add more lime juice or salt if necessary to get a balanced flavour.

davidt4, Dec 22, 9:59pm
You beat me to it richard198.

richard198, Dec 22, 10:13pm
Forgot the olive oil!
That's a good recipe!
For maximum effect; chill (especially since guacamole will turn black if not)

cookessentials, Dec 22, 10:15pm

3 small avocados
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 1/2 tablespoons lime juice
60ml sour cream
1/4 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 mediumtomato, peeled, seeded, chopped
1/2 smallred Spanish onion, finely chopped

Place avocados in bowl, mash roughly with a fork; stir in remaining ingredients
