Avocado Dip with Tortilla Chips
Source of Recipe
From "The Southern Living Party Cookbook"
"Mayonnaise in an avocado dip? I understand your surprise, but I have to say that it makes this dip pretty fantastic. Covering the avocados with mayonnaise keeps them from turning brown since they aren't exposed to the air, making this a 'do the day before' recipe to add to your arsenal. You're welcome!"
List of Ingredients
◦ 2 large ripe avocados
◦ ¼ cup mayonnaise
◦ 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice (from 1 lime)
◦ 1 canned green chile, minced, or ½ teaspoon chili powder
◦ 1 small garlic clove, minced
◦ ½ teaspoon kosher salt, plus more to taste
◦ 4 bacon slices, cooked and crumbled
◦ Tortilla chips
Mash the avocados, mayonnaise, and lime juice in a small bowl just until combined.
Add the chile, garlic, and ½ teaspoon salt; stir well. Cover with plastic wrap, placing the plastic wrap directly on the surface of the dip. Chill at least 1 hour. (Dip may be prepared the day before.)
Season to taste with salt before serving.
Garnish with the crumbled bacon, and serve with tortilla chips.
