Rotel Dip

My family introduced this to me.  It is wonderful.  It is simple, yummy and tastes almost like guacamole with a lot less work.  I love that it whips up so quick and is perfect for a side dish or a BBQ.  I have never used Rotel before but now I have a year supply (it's true) just for this recipe.  Try it and you will love it too.  My family found the recipe here.

Rotel Dip

(click here for printable version)

3 avocados, finely diced or mashed
3 Roma tomatoes, chopped
1 can Rotel, drained
3-4 green onion, finely chopped
Cilantro, finely chopped
1 spoonful of Mayo (not Miracle Whip, I promise)
Garlic salt, to taste

1.  Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and stir until well blended.  Serve with tortilla chips.

Notes:  The cilantro is completely to taste.  I don't like a lot of it so we use about 1/2 of a bunch.  The mayo is to reach the desired consistency, add more or less depending on what you like.  We use a soup spoon to measure, if that is helpful.
