3 recipes Guacamole Spread (recipe below)
2 cups shredded Cheddar sheese (8 0z.)
1-1/2 cups shredded Monterey Jack Cheese (6 0z.)
3 medium tomatoes, chopped
2 (4 oz.) cans chopped ripe olives, drained
Parsley sprigs, if desired
Jalapeno peppers, if desired

Smooth Guacamole Spread over a large platter. Decorate with cheeses, tomatoes, and olives to make a wedge-shape pattern or concentric circles. See the Molded Avocado Pinwheel below.

Guacamole Spread

2 large avocados, pitted and peeled
2 tablespoons dairy sour cream
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon lemon or lime juice
1/2 (4 oz.) can chopped green chilies (about 1/3 cup)
Tabasco sauce to taste
1/2 small onion, chopped
1 small tomato, chopped

In a medium bowl or food processor fitted with the metal blade, mash avocado. Add sour cream, garlic powder, salt, lemon or lime juice, green chilies and Tabasco sauce. Stir in onion and tomato; mix well. If not serving immediately, place a piece of plastic wrap against the surface of the guacamole to prevent it from turning dark. May be refrigerated up to 2 days or may be frozen in airtight container for 1-2 months. Thaw overnight in refrigerator. Serve cold or at room temperature.
