Primordial Slime Dip

The mother of all dips. Here in CA we are able to get a steady supply of fresh, unbruised perfectly ripe avocados. The rest of you get those hard as rock or beat to a pulp rotted ones...or worse frozen dip at the warehouse stores. Ugga.

So what else do you do with them but make the original better than store bought guac, you make the Ultimate Primordial Slime Dip. Don't exactly remember where I got the name from a bajillion years ago when I moved to LA but I still use it. The name raises eyebrows and is some outright tasty stuff.
Primordial Slime Dip
  • 4 medium ripe avocados
  • 2 limes
  • 2 green onions
  • 1/2 c salsa fresca
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 5-10 drops Tabasco
  • 1/4 c fresh chopped cilantro
  • salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste.
Cut the avocados into halves and scoop out the flesh, make certain to clean out the skin of all the darker green goodness. Juice the limes over the avocado and mash with a potato masher to your desired consistency...I like chunks not fine puree. Thinly slice the green onion and add to the avocado mixture. Add the salsa fresca, garlic, Tabasco and cilantro. Fold in gently. Salt and Pepper to taste. It can be eaten right away but is best if you lay plastic wrap directly on the dip and then put on a tight lid and let the flavors blend for an hour or so. The plastic wrap directly on the dip will prevent it from turning dark. Store unused portions the same way.
