More About This Recipe
- Irish food isn’t known for being inventive. I’m not saying it isn’t delicious, but most Irish pubs I’ve ever been to have basically the same food.But that doesn’t mean we have to stop there. Sometimes it can be easy to take a traditional dish, add a few quick ingredients, and end up with something very unique. Like my Irish Guacamole! I make this all the time for St. Patrick’s Day. It’s a really fun dip with basic ingredients and takes just minutes to make.As you might guess, the core ingredients for this dip are potatoes and avocados. Pretty basic!The key ingredient to this dip is actually not the potatoes or the avocados. The key ingredient is lime juice! The acid from the lime juice brings all the flavors to life, so don’t leave it out.Mix everything together and season it with salt and pepper and your dip is done! Of course, you’ll want to serve this dip with lots of tortilla chips!This dip is good as-is, but if you want it spicier, you can also add some salsa to it and stir it in. It’ll change the color a little bit, but bring some more flavor to the party also.Put this on your St. Patrick’s Day appetizer list and feed your friends a great, green dip!
- 4 flour tortillas
- 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 4 avocados, peeled and diced
- 1/2 cup diced tomato
- 1/2 red onion, diced
- 1 scallion, diced
- 1/4 cup cilantro leaves
- 1 jalapeño with seeds, sliced
- Juice of 2 limes
- 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350°. Brush each tortilla with about 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Cut the tortillas into large wedges. Bake directly on the oven rack until slightly brown and crisp, about 3 to 4 minutes. Keep an eye on the tortillas, as they can start to burn pretty easily. Transfer to a rack.
Place avocados, tomato, red onion, scallion, cilantro and jalapeño in a molcajete. Add the lime juice and the ¼ cup of olive oil and season with salt, pepper and crushed red pepper (if using). Mash everything together until you reach the desired consistency (we like to keep some larger chunks of avocado, and blend the rest until it's mostly smooth). Serve with the chips.
I love shrimp and avocado together, as I think the citrus flavors in both work perfectly together. And with the mango salsa, you get a touch of sweetness that wraps everything up. It's a really light and fresh twist on the classic!
What a perfect addition to the Margarita Monday agenda! These quesadillas are spicy, cheesy, tangy, and, if you weren't catching on, delicious. The margarita mix adds a really great citrusy flavor that's hard to beat!

26 Guacamole Recipes That Make the Classic Dip Even More Delicious (If You Can Believe It)

The Mexican dish (which literally means &ldquoavocado sauce&rdquo in the Nahuatl dialect) is creamy, refreshing, spicy, and just about perfect atop nearly any food. The most basic guacamole recipe involves some combination of mashed avocado, chopped onion, lime or lemon juice, salt, pepper, and garlic. But longtime guac fans know there&rsquos nothing wrong with a little extra seasoning&mdashin fact, adding fresh fruit, veggies, nuts, spices, and herbs only makes us love the versatile dip even more. Check out 26 of our favorite game-changing guacamole recipes below.
