    I've started making a salsa: red onion, mango and lime. And that's it.

    Guacamole > salsa. That is all.

    turbo's posts in the Food Thread inspired me to make a salsa over the weekend. I used an assortment of roasted habaneros, jalapenos, and a poblano pepper, lots of garlic, plum tomatoes because they're meatier, onion, cilantro, a little vinegar and lime juice, and some raspberries, just for a twist. I thought with all those peppers, it would be deadly, but I wound up disappointed at it being so tame. I guess that's because I roasted them all. It has a nice flavor, but not hot. I froze a lot of it, and will probably play around with modifying the frozen portions as I take each out to eat to see what I can do to improve upon what I have.

    You guys need to check out the recipe I posted for Ninfa's green sauce, it's guacamole with a yummy twist.

    FrogPad, have you been following the last few pages of posts in the "The food thread"? It should be re-titled "The HOT foods thread".

    Definitely, whenever I can get ripe avocados. I really wanted guacamole this weekend instead of salsa, but all the avocados in the store were bright green! :yuck: Why even bother, since they just rot before they ripen when they are that green in the store. :frown:

    I hate that. Out here in the midwest, you have to plan days ahead of time because you have to wait for them to ripen, then hope they aren't bruised and all yucky and brown inside. :frown:

    No need for hot peppers. Make the salsa to taste and then add this stuff.

    NOOOO, not avocado dip, there's nothing natural in that stuff! Do you have a Walmart with a food store? They actually have decent premade guacamole in the deli section.

    MUAHAHAHAHAHA I GOT SOME! I went to safeway. It says 'all natural' :devil:

    Now for some Charlie Rose and Avocado+chips.....bubye!

    Yeah, but does it actually have avocado in it?

    :cry: I'm so jealous of Chroot! Here, avocados can cost as much as $1.99 EACH, and they're green or bruised or shriveled up and no good (I've even gotten ones that looked the right color, but were the texture of styrofoam inside :yuck:). :cry:

    I'll debate the Guacamole > Salsa relationship.
    Can you say Apples > Oranges?

    I will most certianly go for

    Guacamole <> Salsa, How ever



    I want both! With some good chips

    I'm afraid that this relationship is derived immediately from the axioms of my snack system, and thus cannot be debated. It simply is so.

    I love the idea of raspberries, it sounds fantastic. I'm definitely going to try it in my next go around. All those peppers (and onion wrapped in the tinfoil) were placed under the broiler. After I blackened the outter shell, I removed it and tossed them into a blender with some other ingredients, with the seeds. Did you keep the seeds? This stuff was hot, but not too hot.

    They are two different beasts. I like having some hot salsa around to put on eggs, and other assorted foods. I don't think guacamole would be good on eggs. I'll agree with you though. Guacamole is hard to beat as a chip dip.

    That sounds interesting. What type of chips do you use?

    Nope. I'll check it out tomorrow for sure. Good looking out :smile:

    You put them in a paper bag on the counter right?

    I'm bookmarking that, and when I get some cash I'm going to pick some up. I love this part,

    "It’s important to note that the heat will not distribute throughout the soup right away, you need to continue to heat it up, preferably while stirring with a disposable spoon."

    ...disposable spoon :)

    Actually after reading more about that crystal, I think I'm going to pass. Looks a little too hardcore for me :redface:

    Haha frogpad ... I especially enjoy this part:

    "Please note that this is one of the only foods available on the market that is weaponized for military use." :rofl: :surprised
