I’m a huge avocado fan. I’ love them just about anyway. I especially love me some avocado toast and then, of course, there’s guacamole. So when my friends at Buck Wild Tortilla Chips asked me to create a delicious dip to go with their bold new chips, guacamole was the first place my mind went. I mean what’s better than salsa and guacamole with tortilla chips?!
These new Buck Wild Tortilla Chips are amazing! They’re not your average chip. These bold flavored tortilla chips are made with real ingredients you can see right on the chip, like cheese, herbs, pepper, and spices. They’re gluten free and have no artificial preservatives or flavors. And in flavors like Garlic Sea Salt, Cheddar Chipotle, Jalapeno Jack, and Roasted Tomato Herb, you’re sure to find the perfect one for you. And the truth is, these chips are packed with so much flavor, you don’t really have to have a dip. But it’s dip. And they are chips. So there. 🙂
What’s even better is that Buck Wild is a socially conscious company too! Their Mission Buck Wild initiative supports FareStart’s Youth Programs which provide skill-building programs to help a new generation secure meaningful employment opportunities.
I knew that a bold chip needed a bold dip, so I created this 4-ingredient, flavor-filled Ranch Guacamole. This stuff is the perfect blend of smooth and tangy and tastes great with the Buck Wild Garlic Sea Salt Tortilla Chips. The only thing that’s better than the taste, is just how easy it is. All you need to do is to smash up 4 avocados, then stir in some lime juice, mayo, and a packet of ranch dip mix. It’s seriously that simple. Your family and friends will be blown away with the flavor punch this dip packs. I bet even those guacamole haters will change their minds about this one.
Always have trouble getting the perfectly ripe avocado? Make sure to look for color and firmness when picking out the perfect one. Ripe avocados are usually dark green to purple. The lighter green, the less ripe it is. Also, make sure that the avocado is firm, but yields to pressure. If it’s too firm, it’s not ripe. If it’s too soft, you’re going to end up with one that got all those dark spots. And forget all those “hacks” about ripening an under-ripe avocado. Short of the paper bag method, I’ve found them all to be a complete failure.

- Slice the avocados in half and remove the pit. Use a large spoon to scoop out the flesh and put it in a large bowl. Using the back of a fork, mash the avocados until they are smooth. Stir in the lime juice and mayo. Add the ranch dip mix and stir to combine. Serve immediately.
