Dippin' goodness...


So it was Halloween and there was a small get together as a fundraiser for the charity 'Eat so they can'.  I decided to step away from making the traditional (and always successful) dippy damper, and try my hand at the Avocado Log.  As it is a layered dip I was a bit scared as to how it was going to turn out, being the first time I made it and all.  To my surprise it turned out great and was a HUGE hit at the party.

Avocado Log

Ingredients
3 ripe avocados
Squeeze of lemon juice
1 carton of sour cream
1/2 packet taco seasoning
3 shallots
3 tomatoes
1/2 yellow capsicum
1/2 C tasty cheese
1 packet of corn chips

Method
1.  Mash avocado and lemon juice together with a fork
2.  Stir taco seasoning through sour cream.  Put in fridge/freezer to harden a little, makes it easier to spread
3.  Chop shallots and dice tomatoes and capsicum
4.  Line a loaf tin with baking paper and layer from 4th layer to the 1st

1st Layer-     Mashed avocado with a squeeze of lemon juice (to prevent it from discolouring)
2nd Layer-    Sour cream seasoned with taco seasoning
3rd Layer-    Chopped shallots
4th Layer-     Diced tomatoes and yellow capsicum

5.  Refrigerate for 10-15 mins
6.  Turn onto platter and top with the 5th layer


5th Layer-    Top with tasty cheese 

7.  Serve with corn chips
