One of the first times I had Guacamole dip was with my niece.  She whipped up a bowl while babysitting my kiddos.  Of course leaving the hot peppers out. You would be surprised how yummy a yellow or red pepper is in this dish. Try using the sweet pepper slices instead of chips for an even more healthy spin. I remember she liked to leave the pit in the dip thinking it would keep the fruit from turning brown.  Lime juice added to the recipe can actually help keep the avocado from turning brown from the air as well as keeping in a good air tight container. The fact that we ate the guacamole so quickly prevented it from turning brown.


When was the first time you had a dip made from avocados?
