    Yummy… that looks so good. I love the idea of adding some salsa. Not a lot but that touch would really make the difference. Although as I was scrolling down my computer had a mind of its own and as I tried to stop it to go back to the ingredients I thought the dash of pepper said Dr Pepper lol. I may have to stop by the store on the way home; I think this would be great on top of the pulled pork I had planned.

    I make mine almost the same but add 1 Large Tablespoon of sour cream…Don’t know why, but it makes it smoother and absolutely delish!

      Yum! Sour cream makes everything better, so I’ll have to give that a try!

    I have also enjoyed a similar recipe I use all the time… Also if you like a more modern version using epicure mix can’t be any easier just 2 avocados, 3 tbsp epicure guacamole mix, 1/2 cup sour cream and 1 tbsp lime juice
