    Corn Guacamole Dip

    Two-thirds of a cup of cooked corn give a fun, chunky consistency to this Crazy Guacamole dip from eat-drink-love.com. When buying fresh corn, look for ears with plenty of golden silks peeking out of the top; that signifies how many kernels the cob contains.

    Green Pea Guacamole Dip

    Try this Green Pea Guacamole dip from Jean-Georges Vongerichten's New York City restaurant ABC Cocina. It calls for about a half cup puréed fresh peas, but we bet thawed frozen ones would work year round.
