FROM MOM ARE WE THERE YET?

We eat at my dad’s house weekly with the whole family and since he has a ginormous avocado tree we have homemade guacamole almost every week.  Truth be told, I have never made it.  I posted on my Facebook, asking for guacamole (guac) recipes and received a ton of input.  Some basic recipes and some crazy ones (like adding dairy and other random ingredients)  Tinkering with the recipe to find the one everyone likes is fun and this week I brought a bag of RW Garcia‘s Dippers for the kids to use while eating the guac.  The dippers were a hit!  They are available at Sam’s Clubs nationwide. *Recipe available on www.momarewethereyet.net.

SPINACH & GARLIC, RED BEET & ONION AND CARROT & TOMATO.

The family devoured the dip and the Dippers.  My son was upset I was leaving the 1/2 empty bag at my dad’s when we were packing up to head home.  I had to let him know I had a second unopened bag of Dippers at home. The guacamole was super easy to make and it is a versatile recipe.  I’ll post the way I made it with some recipe suggestions.
