Avocado Cilantro Dip

Avocado Cilantro Dip Recipe

A creamy dip served cold with an assortment of dippers. The dip has smooth avocado flavor with a punch of cilantro and undertones of onion. Perfect for a light snack or appetizer.

You take a little bit of this and a little bit of that and mix it together then find something crunchy to dip with. I think that is what makes dips so much fun to make and eat. It is a an opportunity to test flavors and different textures to create something awesome.

One of my favorite ways to create a new recipe is to:
1. Have a dish in mind. In this case it was a dip.
2. Open up the fridge and pull out ingredients that will work well together.
3. Spread out the ingredients on the counter.
4. Start taste testing ingredients together.
5. Grab a mixing bowl and this is where "a little bit of this and that comes in".

It is also a great opportunity to clean out your fridge. 

This is where you can get creative and make something amazing. Honestly, I've had a few flops, not all can be winners. But you learn from those mistakes. Example: earlier this year I learned bacon and peanut butter don't broil well together. It sounded awesome in my head.

Anyway, back to this Avocado Cilantro Dip. It turned out so good. I know you will love it. My favorite thing to dip in this is Doritos. What will you use as a dipper?   

Avocado Cilantro Dip

2 oz. cream cheese (softened)
1/2 cup sour cream
1 avocado, peeled, seed removed and diced.
1 Tbs. cilantro paste (found in the produce section of your store by the herbs and is in a tube)
1 Tbs. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp ground white pepper
1/4 tsp ground cumin
3 scallions, thinly sliced

Cream together the cream cheese, sour cream, and avocado.
Mix in the remainder of the ingredients and mix until well combined.
Serve cold with an assortment of dippers.
