Guacamole

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 10 min.

Makes

about 1-1/2 cups

This is one of our favorite spicy snack food recipes, and it's quick and easy to prepare when friends drop by on short notice. It also makes a great side dish for a complete southwestern-style meal. Mild or sweet peppers can be substituted for the chiles for those who like their guacamole a little less spicy. —Anne Tipps, Duncanville, Texas
