Ranch Dip Guacamole
You may just want to ditch the tortilla chips and use a spoon to eat this delicious guacamole.
As if homemade fresh guacamole isn’t good enough on its own, add some ranch dip to the mix and it will make your taste buds very happy.
This recipe starts out by making homemade guacamole with ripe avocados, chopped onions, jalapenos, tomatoes and garlic.
Juice from a whole lime is added which not only adds zing to the flavor, it also helps with preserving the bright green color.
Then the ranch dip is made from a dry mix right out of the box, and sour cream.
You can even use light sour cream if you like.
The ranch dip adds a light creamy texture, and richness to the guacamole.
It’s really good.
