Holiday Guacamole

If you celebrate Thanksgiving, how was it? Did you have lots of food? I bet you have lots of leftovers. Make use of leftover cranberries (or cranberry sauce) with this Mexican-inspired dip. It's perfect for a light lunch. I'll post a sweet cranberry recipe soon.

HOLIDAY GUACAMOLE
Cranberries and lime juice give this chunky dip a kick. Serves 2.

  • 1 avocado
  • 3 heaping tablespoons fresh cranberries, chopped
  • 3 heaping tablepoons raw jicama, chopped
  • 3 heaping tablespoons baby carrots, finely chopped
  • 1T lime juice
  • 1/8 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp. chile powder
  • salt & pepper, to taste

Using a large spoon or fork, mash together the avocado, seasonings & lime juice. Stir in the jicama & carrots, adding the cranberries last. If it is too tart for your palette, reduce the cranberries or add more jicama.

Hey Harriet  

I love guacomole & this recipe sounds even yummier than most types. Thanks heaps for sharing it.

In answer to your question about whether most people in Australia celebrate Christmas. The answer is yes. The majority certainly do. Everyone I know does. We just don't have a Thanksgiving Day celebration :)
