This was easy, fun and had a kick to it. You can vary the spiciness (mild or hot sauces or salsa) and some ingredients . I did not have sour cream so I used some miracle whip and it added a little extra zip. I also used a tortilla and placed everything on top with crunchy tortilla chips over the top and then made a wrap with the tortilla. With guests, you can cut these into diagonal halves. I rate this 9.2/10.

Place the avocado in a bowl. Mash with a fork and add the sour cream, lime juice, and chopped cilantro. Season with salt and pepper. Stir well and mix to form a cream. Set aside.
