Chunky Guacamole Dip Recipe

Guacamole IngredientsGuacamole is my idea of a perfect food. First off, the main ingredient is rich, creamy, delicious avocado. And, guacamole is easily customized to your tastes and whatever ingredients you have on hand.

My latest take is a chunky guacamole with fresh additions like sweet and hot peppers, onion and cilantro. Fresh Meyer lemon juice adds zing, along with a sprinkling of ancho chile powder. If you like more heat, add a few dashes of hot sauce or another chile pepper.Fresh Guacamole
