Clint Eastwood has had a very long and very successful career not only in acting but directing as well. He was considered one of the pinnacles of masculinity for a generation. His career started in the 1950s when he got cast in the TV show Rawhide which proved to be a breakout role. After the show was canceled, he moved on to movies. There are way too many to list but let us be real you either know Clint Eastwood from the Dollars Trilogy (A Fistful of Dollars, A Few Dollars More, and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly) from the spaghetti western genre or from Dirty Harry about a cop who played hard and fast with the rules.
This is his recipe for Guacamole Dip. Now let’s have a quick discussion as I did for the Minnie Pearl’s Corn Light Bread that contained sugar. This recipe is not authentic Mexican guacamole as it contains cream cheese. I would argue that once the word “dip” is added, we all know what we are getting into.
The Guacamole Dip is super easy to make. It is just two ripe avocados that are mashed with a little cream cheese. Lemon juice, grated onion, paprika, salt, and a few dashes of hot sauce are mixed in and you are done. Though the recipe calls for Tabasco Sauce, it can honestly be subbed out for the hot sauce of your choice. Actually, this recipe as a whole is a perfect canvas to tweak to one’s preference. Try adding cumin or cayenne powders or swap out lime juice for the lemon. I think you get the idea!
