HI, PAL! Happy Sunday!! Hope you are all having a fantastic weekend!

This was our “date-night” weekend, so the hubby and I hit our beautiful city of Chicago and partied like we were 25 again!

Except the fact that we’re not 25, and all the 25-year olds stayed up waaaay later than midnight. We were crying for hangover-food after our 2 drinks. While every other 20-something continued onto the next club, he and I hit up the good ol’ hot dog stand at Weiner’s Circle. Best.DOGS.EVER!

Can I tell you something else that’s real??

The real thing is that you can give me just a hint of an excuse to make a dip of sorts, and I’m totally, 100-percently on the dip-making job. I am a dip-lovah!

On a side note:
Now dip baby dip, come on let’s dip baby dip baby
Dip baby just dip, baby dip baby dip
Just Dip, Cotton Candy sweet and low
let me see that tootsie roll….

😀

So, I found some mushy avocados in the veggie tray and I couldn’t be more excited. For reals. The avo needed like 3 fork-whips and it was ready to be spread on a piece of toast – it was THAT mushy. I moved onto the next avocado – the one that wasn’t as ripe – and made this Southwestern Avocado Dip. OH.MY.GOODNESS!! SO GOOD!

Another real confession? I spooned it into my mouth, sans chips. I looked like a caveman. A barbaric scene, to say the least.

This dip is smooth, yet coarse. Silky, yet chunky. And because I can’t get enough, I’m making it again for Cinco de Mayo. Hope you will, too!

ENJOY!

  1. You are so FUNNY – I love it. Can’t make all the recipes but do read all your posts for my lift of the day.
    Cinco de Mayo is coming soon, but can’t wait for the dip, so it’s for Mah Jongg Tuesday.. And the baked potatoes are for Monday.

  2. Without a doubt I would eat this like a caveman too, that is really funny. This looks so good and you’re right, perfect for Cinco de Mayo. This and a couple margs. Or more than a couple. Thanks!
