Perfect with chips as a dip or as a side to grilled steak or meat. Fantastic with fajitas! From Williams-Sonoma.

Used this as a side dish for Recipe #235329 and Recipe #173428. Way lessened the chipotles, added a tad bit of left over diced jalapeno and used dried cilantro. Pulsed it in a food processor. So quick and delish. Ole! Muchas gracias, senora! Made for ZWT5- Zaar Chow Hounds.

This was a smoky guacamole which is something that I haven't tasted before. I mixed in all of the onion and cilantro at the beginning. I used the full 2 chipotle chiles and a couple of teaspoons adobo sauce. Served with tortilla chips at a BBQ tonight. Made for ZWT5.
