Rockwell International was a major manufacturing conglomerate and a big employer in the community of Kearney, Nebraska, until it closed in 1985.

I guess it’s not surprising that the wives got together to create a cookbook. But I bet they’d have to use a different title if they compiled it today.

Guacamole dip

Ingredients
2 avocados
dash of salt and pepper
pinch of parsley
1/4 tsp. garlic
1/2 chopped onion
1/2 jalapeno green pepper
1/2 real lemon
2 Tbsp. tomato juice
1/2 tsp. chili powder

Method
Stir well, Refrigerate. Serve with chips.

How it played out
I collected this recipe in Nebraska, but didn’t get around to making it until I got to my cousin Jean’s home in Minnesota. A food processor makes it quick and super easy to make.

We served it with corn chips as a starter for a family dinner that featured several page-32 recipes, including Andy Griffith’s favorite roast lambthree-bean salad, scallops à la Jimmy and deep chocolate cake (Jean’s mum’s recipe). Stay tuned for the last two to be posted.

Verdict
A great version of guacamole. The jalapeno and chili powder give it a nice heat, without it being over the top. But the biggest bonus was the chance to cook with Jean. We such had such a great time in her kitchen. Here she is having fun earlier in the day.
