This avocado and tomato dressing is perfect for any type of Mexican food….use it in place of Guacamole. It’s also great on salads and even sandwiches. The great part is I can make it any time without a lot of hassle because it uses mashed avocados that are stored in my freezer.
Ingredients
  • 2 avocados, mashed
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • 1 medium to large tomato
  • ½ of a small onion cut into chunks
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • ⅓ to ½ of a 16 ounce container of sour cream
  • 1½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 or more teaspoon of hot sauce
Instructions
  1. If your using mashed avocados from your freezer simply place your thawed avocados in a large bowl. If your using fresh avocados cut them in half, remove the avocado and mash them in a large bowl.
  2. Cut the stem off of the tomato and cut into quarters. Remove the seeds from the tomato. Place the tomato and onion in a food processor and process until pureed. You can leave some smaller chunks in it if you desire. Remove from the food processor and add to the bowl of mashed avocado.
  3. Add in the garlic, cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper. Start by adding ¼ of a 16 ounce container of sour cream. Mix it in well. You want the avocado/tomato mixture to be thin enough to spoon or pour. If it is still thick a bit more sour cream. Most of the time the pureed tomatoes are enough to make the dressing pourable so additional sour cream isn’t needed.
  4. Add in a teaspoon or more of hot sauce. Adjust the amount to suit your own tastes. I usually end up adding about 3 teaspoons and no one complains that it’s too spicy.
  5. Mix all the ingredients well and your dressing is ready.
  6. Store any extras in the refrigerator for 3 days up to a week. Please note that you may find the dressing darkens a bit over time. This is just the avocados reacting to the air so having a well covered container will help prevent this.
