“Just Remember This: Two-Dip Weekend!”

Remember two things:

avocado and sour cream –

already got rest*!


*(For the guacamole: grape tomatoes to dice fine after seeding – yes, labor intensive, but do you want runny guac?; shallots and red onion, both minced; garlic – same; key lime juiced to flavor and protect – ‘mole cops, like; kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper; extra virgin olive oil and sour cream both to thin and flavor – criminals for the cops to control.  For the mixed-“race” refried beans: both black and pinto refried beans – canned if you are lazy but check to see if lard was used and if not, guy a better brand – if homemade and unwilling to swing lard, use bacon grease and do not remove the deserter tidbits; shallots, red onions and garlic, all minced; sour cream and extra virgin olive oil; S&P. For Both: minced, seeded and pithed jalapeno peppers for crunch and heat; a side-bowl of both crushed red and powdered dry chipotle peppers for the truly brave or just plain ignorant or massively stupid: I qualify on both the last two counts! These items may be served in separate small bowls with sprinkling baby teaspoons of sorts, or if related or truly loved, just use fingers!  Optional for the beans: paprika, both Spanish and Hungarian, smoked and straight; minced seeded grape tomatoes.  Optional for the Guacamole: a light dusting of smoked paprika.  Mandatory for both: minced green onions, both green and white as garniture on top and reserved in small side-bowls and muchas muchisimas mas small chop and whole-picked cilantro leaves and minced cilantro stems.  Do you realize how much beer – Negra Modelo or Tecate but in a pinch any will do! will it take to prep just two of these television musts? Go! Buy more beer!)
