JUNE 5, 2017
You love it as a dip. It's great as a sandwich spread. And you've definitely eaten it by the spoonful on more than one occasion.
This summer, kick up your go-to guacamole game by adding a hint of smoky chipotle.

, uses chipotle chiles-which can be found in cans in the international foods section of the grocery store-to make her guacamole pop. "This is not your everyday guac," says Betts. "The peppers add a touch of heat and earthiness without making things too spicy."
4 ripe Hass avocados, flesh scooped out
2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
2 green onions, sliced
2/3 cup chopped tomatoes
1 1/2 tbsp. fresh lime juice
2 tsp. canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce (minced)
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 tsp. salt
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mash together to desired consistency. For creamier guac, add 1/2 cup of sour cream.
