More About This Recipe
  • Irish food isn’t known for being inventive. I’m not saying it isn’t delicious, but most Irish pubs I’ve ever been to have basically the same food. But that doesn’t mean we have to stop there. Sometimes it can be easy to take a traditional dish, add a few quick ingredients, and end up with something very unique. Like my Irish Guacamole! I make this all the time for St. Patrick’s Day. It’s a really fun dip with basic ingredients and takes just minutes to make. As you might guess, the core ingredients for this dip are potatoes and avocados. Pretty basic! The key ingredient to this dip is actually not the potatoes or the avocados. The key ingredient is lime juice! The acid from the lime juice brings all the flavors to life, so don’t leave it out. Mix everything together and season it with salt and pepper and your dip is done! Of course, you’ll want to serve this dip with lots of tortilla chips! This dip is good as-is, but if you want it spicier, you can also add some salsa to it and stir it in. It’ll change the color a little bit, but bring some more flavor to the party also. Put this on your St. Patrick’s Day appetizer list and feed your friends a great, green dip!
