Yield: 4 Servings

    • 2 large Florida avocados
    • 1/2 cup sour cream
    • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
    • 2 tablespoons lime juice

    • 1 tablespoon minced scallion greens
    • 1 tablespoon minced cilantro leaves
    • 1 teaspoon chili powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon coriander
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • Black peppercorns to grind over the top
