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 lamb, three-bean salad, scallops à la Jimmy and deep chocolate cake (Jean’s mum’s recipe). Stay tuned for the last two to be posted.
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.
