Creamy Avocado Dip

Creamy Avocado Dip - NotEnoughCinnamon.com

As an avocado-obsessed, one of my missions in life is to find new avocado recipes, just so I have an excuse to always increase my consumption of it. My homemade guacamole, simply made with mashed avocado, red onion and a pinch of salt remains hands down my favorite of all time but I’m not against experimenting new things. In between guacamole batches that is.  These tuna avocado boats for instance have become a regular when comes lunch time and I’m not sure what to do/in a hurry/don’t want to cook/all of that. They’re convenient, quick and easy => winner!

Moving on to this Creamy Avocado Dip. I’m happy to say that I have a new winner in the avocado appetizer department! I used some Philadelphia cream cheese for this one, to make a creamy, velvety, dreamy texture. You’re going to love it! I also added cilantro and lime. Basically the ingredients for a traditional guacamole you say? Yep, guacamole again. At the end, I always come back to it. It’s a true love story, I’m telling you!

  1. I just made the avocado/creamcheese dip for a party this afternoon. I had a VERY old lime, really hard, and I rolled it and rolled it and got a whole lot of juice. I only used half, 2 perfect avocados, a whole brick of cream cheese, a splash of red Tapatio sauce, 1/2 of a very large scallion. I’m impressed. It’s really really good! :0)
