Recipe for my new favorite salsa and guacamole

I’m obsessed with dips and salsas lately. I think I’m trying to hold on to the last bit of summer. Since it’s still in the 90’s here most days it’s hard to be quite ready for the onslaught of pumpkin and apple recipes. Plus it’s football season, of course you need good dip recipes right?


I like my guac to be really simple. I like to save my tomatoes for fresh salsa.

Easy Guacamole (serves 2, easily doubled)
1 ripe avocado, peeled, seed removed, and roughly chopped)
Juice of 1/2 lime
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1/4- 1/2 tsp salt (if you’re eating with salty tortilla chips, you won’t need as much)

Put everything in a bowl and smoosh it up with your potato masher or the back of a spoon.

1 can of beans (I like kidney or black beans) drained and rinsed
3 tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1 cup chopped onion
1/4- 1/2 cup fresh cilantro (I like a lot) chopped
1 jalepeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
juice of 1/2 lime
2 cloves garlic, chopped,  or 1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1/4- 1/2 tsp. salt

Add everything into a bowl and mix to combine. This salsa is pretty forgiving and open to substitutions.

Both of these dips are great with chips and fantastic over tacos.
