Save the Pits Guacamole/Avocado Dip

"Avocado pits unite!! Save this guacamole/avocado dip from turning black or brown!! The pit/seed of an avocado prevents guacamole/avocado dip from turning brown or black. It keeps it green, even after a day. This dip does not have any tomatoes in it. My mom made it this way when we kids were growing up. It is simple to make and very tasty. For a spicier, hotter dip, use jalapeños or serrano chilies instead of green chilies. The full flavor of the avocado comes through because there are not a lot of ingredients to mask its true flavor. This can be served as a side dish on a leaf of lettuce. You can also put a scoop of it on top of enchiladas or burritos. Larger avocados can be used but you will need to add more of the other ingredients as well. Preparation time is approximate."

  • Cut avocados in half and remove the pits.
  • Set the pits aside.
  • Peel the avocados and put the pulp in a bowl.
  • Mash the avocado pulp.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and stir well.
  • Put the avocado pits into the dip and plunge them in so that they are completely covered with the avocado dip.

  • Keep at least one of the pits in the dip until it is completely gone.
  • If the dip does turn brown it will be a very slight brown.

  1. Great guacamole! It is similar to the version that I make, but I don't usually add the green chilies. It was nice for a change. I really appreciated the pit tip. I usually keep the pit in guac. if I have to store it for a while, but I did not know that it should be completely covered by the guac. I followed the tip and it worked like a charm! Thanks!!
  2. Very tasty guacamole! So easy to make, very creamy and delicious flavor. I found that 2 green onions and 2 green chilies added up to 1/4 cup each. Thank you for posting AuntWoofieWoof!
  3. Really good guacamole! I thought the hint about leaving in the pit was brilliant. Thanks for that little tidbit! Made for the Babes of ZWT4.
  4. Wow, it really didn't turn brown! I was so impressed! I was also so surprised at how good the flavor of the guac was with so little ingredients. I have a few guacamole recipes that taste as good, but with much more added to it. It was gobbled up before I could get a picture, so I guess it was too good! lol This was a good guac recipe to feed my vegan friends as well. Thanks!!! Made for ZWT4 - Los Jefes de la Cocina!
  5. ZWT4: Aunt - this is the best guac I have had! Thank you for the Pit Tip!! That saves the dip from going bad!! You rock!!


I just love to cook. I love to experiment with different recipes and love to get new ones. I love to share my recipes and love to have others taste things I make. I baked a lot while I was living at high school. I have babysat for over 33 years for different people I have cooked meals for them when it was needed. At one time, I babysat 2 children in my apartment and cooked dinner for them, their mom and their grandmother. I loved it. I took care of them for a couple of years. The name AuntWoofieWoof has a very special meaning. I babysat for a family with 3 children in their home several years ago. One day the youngest boy came up to me and said "Aunt Woofie Woof......." and proceeded to say what he had to say. He called me that name for 2 days. When I asked him where he got the name from, his reply was "It was on a Dr Suess tape my momma got me at the Library". :lol: I thought it was so cute that I decided to use it on the internet. I babysat for that family for 8 years!! That little boy is now in middle school. I still see him and his family every now and then. His mom and I keep in touch over the phone. I usually spend Thanksgiving Day with them. It is fun watching the kids grow into fine young adults. The oldest daughter, is in her early 20's, is working and has her own place. She is a beautiful young lady. I am a Substitute Playground Supervisor and a Crossing Guard at an Elementary School. I love both jobs. <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="RSC-HiddenGem-part"title="Photo and Video Sharing"/> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" width=90%> . <img src="">
