"Perfect for your next party, this guacamole is decorated to look like your favorite 
ballpark. A cream cheese baseball tops it off."


    * 4 ounces Neufchatel cream cheese, softened
    * 1 teaspoon packaged dry buttermilk salad dressing and seasoning mix
    * 3 large fresh, ripe Hass avocados, halved, pitted, peeled
    * 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
    * 2 teaspoons coarse ground garlic powder
    * 1 teaspoon salt
    * 1 teaspoon red pepper sauce
    * 1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
    * 1/2 cup chopped, prepared roasted red bell pepper
    * 1 red bell pepper
    * 1/2 cup low fat sour cream
    * Thin wheat crackers
    * For dipping, bell pepper strips cut 1/2 inch wide, tortilla chips and/or crackers


   1. In bowl, blend cream cheese and buttermilk seasoning. Place in plastic wrap, roll 
into a ball and chill in freezer for 1 hour or refrigerate overnight.
   2. In bowl, coarsely mash avocado with lime juice, garlic, salt and red pepper 
   3. Stir in red onion and roasted bell pepper.
   4. Using rubber spatula, scoop guacamole onto square plate. Spread out evenly, 
making a slight mound in center to create a 'pitchers mound'.
   5. Spoon sour cream into pastry bag with fine tip or plastic bag with 1/8 inch 
corner cut out. Pipe thin 'base lines' onto guacamole 'field'.
   6. To create the red 'stitching' for the baseball, cut the red bell pepper into 1 
inch strips. Using a sharp knife, carefully remove fleshy inside of the pepper, 
reserving the red shiny skin. Slice the skin into very thin strips to create stitch 
lines for baseball.
   7. To make baseball: Remove cream cheese from freezer or refrigerator. Roll to make 
a round baseball shape. Remove plastic wrap. Using a wooden pick, form the stitch lines 
on the ball. Use the very thin pieces of red bell pepper skin to lay over stitch lines. 
Place 'baseball' on the 'mound' in the center of the guacamole 'field'.
   8. Use thin wheat crackers for 'bases'.
   9. Serve crackers, tortilla chips and/or bell pepper strips as dippers.
