My mom gave me this reciped years ago. It is so different from guacamole. Here in west Texas, we get our share of guacamole and this is a welcome change. The flavor of the Italian dressing adds the zing, and the green chilis add a little punch. If you like it hotter, just add one chopped jalapeno. The avocadoes need to be firm enough to chop and not mushy like you want them to be for guacamole. Buy firm, not hard as a rock, avocadoes. Cooking time is for refrigeration. Enjoy!
