avocado chipolte cream

There was a friend's birthday this weekend before the rain where tacos were involved.  I am off adventuring starting tomorrow where there will be no tacos involved.  Tacos will happen when I get home.  But I will not cook much while I am gone because my Dad really does not let me work much in his kitchen except handing me a paring knife.  I am flying or I would bring my own.  Truly.  He likes to experiment with knife shape so I never know what I will find in his kitchen.  I say his because my Mom does the dishes.

I will get to see the Tall Short Person and Koda Bear too.  But no tacos.  It just will not happen.  When I get back, I will need to make mjustut and some coleslaw.  Cook some black beans and either roast or fry avocado.  Veggie tacos here I come.  It has everything to do with my parents not really eating tacos and getting sourdough through airport security is very interesting.  Potatoes and loaves of bread are also very interesting.  

For tacos, this avocado cream is pretty lovely.  I actually saw this avocado cream with falafel.  But it is really good on tacos.  I added more depth then the original recipe, which I read for two seconds.  I just liked the idea.  Try it.  Play with it.  Make it yours.  Eat tacos.

avocado chipolte cream

2 ripe avocados, peeled and pitted

3 to 6 tablespoons of sour cream

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon paprika

1/2 teaspoon ground chipolte

1/4 teaspoon ground ancho

In a blender canister, put all the ingredients.  Start with three tablespoons of sour cream.  Start to blend.  If it is creamy, do not add any more sour cream.  If it needs to be creamier, add more sour cream.  Blend until very smooth.

Use in tacos.  As dips.  

It will be next week before I get back to this space.  Maybe by then all the water will have gone down and I will have gotten some work done on sweater on airplanes and in airports.  One crochet project.  One spinning project.  One book.  For the way there.  I should make it!  And hopefully I will not come back with too much.  I am hoping yarn or roving (yellow of some type) and maybe some fabric.  The books could me scary.  I may need to ship!
