RICH AND CREAMY GUACAMOLE DIP FOR MOTHER'S DAY

Well, Tashyra inspired me today to make some Guacamole Dip. We went to the store and found Haas Avocados on sale. I'd only made Guacamole once before and it was okay but nothing to rave about. We got home and I started checking out all the different recipes for Guacamole...and there are quite a few out there. Most are fairly simple -- just avocados, lime, onions and salt/pepper. But I wanted something more.
Here is the recipe I came up with. I think the addition of sour cream gives it that little extra something, and I used mild chunky salsa instead of plain tomatoes to jazz it up...just enough to add that "south of the border" zing.
Of course, both of the kiddos absolutely loved it!! I hope you do, too!!
Rich and Creamy Guacamole Dip

3 Ripe Haas Avocados
3 tbsp sour cream
2-3 tbsp finely minced red onion
1 teaspoon lime juice
1 tbsp finely minced garlic
½ tsp lemon pepper
3 tbsp chunky salsa (mild to hot depending on your taste
Salt and coarse ground black pepper to taste

Peel, seed and mash the Avocados leaving some small chunks.
Add all other ingredients and mix well.
Serve chilled with chips, on burgers, tacos or sandwiches.

Peace and HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!!!
