I don't have exact measurements- but here's an estimate: for 1 avocado: scoop out the avocado and mash lightly -should still be a little chunky- add about 2 Tablespoons diced tomatoes, 1 Tablespoon onion, lemon juice- about half a teaspoon,2 or 3 drops of tabasco sauce, several shakes of salt, a few shakes of black pepper, garlic: a few drops of liquid- or some shakes of powerdered , and then the fun part: taste it -does it need more garlic? salt? sometimes I substitute about 3 Tablespoons from a bottle of salsa for the onion and tomato but fresh is better if I have them.
Ohai Serapis! Here's a wonderful recipe and it's simple: pkg of frozen corn, 1 can chopped green chilies, 1 pkg cream cheese; mix well and heat it up in a sauce pan or in the oven. It's fine without salt/pepper but that's up to you.
products I like? nachos, guacamole & chips - nothin beats good homemade guacamole (I put diced tomatoes, onions, salt, black pepper, garlic, lemon juice and a splash of tabasco sauce in mine) (DON'T forget the salt or all the garlic in the world won't make it taste right- the salt brings out the garlic- I found that out the hard way!!!).
