Author Notes

I made this as a lighter, fresh and tangy alternative to guacamole. —Food & Fire

What You'll Need
  • 1 avocado
  • 3 tablespoons maynaise
  • 1 tablespoon ranch dressing mix
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 shallot
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 cup cilantro
  • 2-3 tablespoons pickled jalepeno slices, with juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Pit the avocado by cutting it lengthwise around the seed and then twisting the two halves apart to expose the pit. Remove the pit and use a tablespoon to scoop the avocado flesh out of the skin and into a food processor. Add the mayonnaise, ranch dressing mix, buttermilk, shallot, garlic, cilantro, lime juice, and jalapenos. Give it a whirl until everything it blended smooth. Taste and adjust seasonings.
  2. Serve instead of guacamole.
