    Avocado Dip with Tortilla Chips

    Source of Recipe

    From "The Southern Living Party Cookbook"

    Recipe Introduction

    "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
    ◦ cup mayonnaise
    ◦ 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice (from 1 lime)
    ◦ 1 canned green chile, minced, or teaspoon chili powder
    ◦ 1 small garlic clove, minced
    ◦ 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 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.

    Serves 8
