Amberly's Spicy Guacamole Dip

Add a little spice to your party with this simple Spicy Guacamole Recipe. Some like it hot, others not so much so feel free to adjust the amount of chilies.

Ingredients

  • 4 avocados
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 sweet red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 red chilies, seeded and finely chopped
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Pinch of cayenne, for garnish

Directions

  • Cut the avocados in half lengthwise and take out the seed. Scoop it out into a medium-size bowl and mash with a fork. 
  • Gently stir in the garlic, red onion, jalapeno pepper, red chilies, 3 tablespoons of the olive oil, and lime juice. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Transfer to a serving bowl. Drizzle the remainder of the olive oil over the Guacamole and sprinkle with cayenne for presentation. Serve immediately. Makes 3 cups. Dee-lish! 

Dip Tip! Guacamole Dip does not keep well, but adding a tablespoon of lemon juice helps preserve the color. 


Deb's Savory Pulled Pork

Superbowl Sunday is upon us! Since I am almost as big a football fan as I am a food fan, you can imagine how excited I am! At my house, pulled pork is a staple at our Superbowl parties. Here is a very easy, very delicious pulled pork recipe for the crock pot that you can put together the night before and just let it go low and slow.

Ingredients

  • 4 lb pork roast (I prefer a shoulder roast, but you can use the butt as well)
  • 2 large onions (white or yellow)
  • 8 ounces of ginger ale or beer
  • 3 cups of bbq sauce 

Directions

  • Place one of the onions (sliced) in the bottom of the crock pot. Place the roast on top and then cover with the second onion (sliced)
  • Pour the beer OR ginger ale over the top
  • Cook on low for about 10 - 12 hours (until tender enough to pull apart with a fork)
  • Transfer the meat to a bowl & strain the onions discarding the liquid
  • Return the shredded meat & onions and 2/3 of the bbq sauce to the crock pot and mix well and cook for another 3 or 4 hours 

Tip: Have some minced garlic soaking in olive oil set aside. I like to brush it on some good rolls and toast in the oven right before serving. Have some shredded cheddar, slaw, the extra bbq sauce and whatever other toppings you are offering set out, so everyone can help themselves. 

NOTE: Cooking time may vary depending on the crock pot. When the meat is shreddable, the first round of cooking is complete. The second round of cooking is complete when the flavors have melded and it simply tastes good.
