chunky guacamoleAvocado is one of my favorite things to eat, and it’s found in two of my favorite dips. When I was in Mexico, I pretty much lived on this guacamole. Luckily, the resort that I was staying at had a “class” where they thought us how to make it so I can have it all the time! The tomatillo salsa is based on one from Rick Bayless. Its a nice change from a more traditional tomato based salsa. Make these both and have an instant fiesta! It’ll bring a little bit of summertime fun and flavor into your fall.
