Creamy avocado dip….a twist on guacamole

I don’t have an interesting tale to tell about this avocado dip. It’s creation came about due to one of many possible reasons or all of them. I’m new to guacamole, and boy is it green. Wow…this one avocado didn’t go very far, we need more dip than this. I want it to be creamier. I sure do love sour cream….what if I just add some to this guacamole?

Whatever the reason….my family loves this dip; it’s our favorite way to eat avocados!  It’s easy to make, there aren’t too many ingredients, it’s very versatile and great to take to gatherings and parties.  It can be as spicy or as mild as you want it.  Actually, I never make it the same way twice. 


Denise’s Spicy Avocado Dip

2 ripe avocados, mashed with fork
1 can mexican rotel (cilantro/lime), with liquid
1 to 1 1/2 cups sour cream (I prefer Daisy, full fat)
1/4 medium sweet onion, diced small
2 cloves garlic, minced
salt/pepper to taste

  1. In medium sized bowl, add rotel to avocado.  This mexican rotel is quite spicy.  I use it to top tacos, tostadas and what not.  If you aren’t into spicy, you can use mild or original rotel.  If you don’t have rotel, you can dice tomatoes and add 1-2 Tbsp lime juice (it just won’t have any kick to it). 

  2. Add in sour cream, diced onion, garlic.  Mix well.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Refrigerate. It tastes great right away, but even better if it’s refrigerated an hour or so.  I place the avocado pits into the dip to keep the avocados from turning brown.  Stores well for several days. 

          *Serve with tortilla chips or Food Should Taste Good chips. 

This avocado dip is a great way to introduce avocado to children.  Mine love it despite the fact that it’s green.  Let me know what yours think!!

    I think that sounds wonderful! We love guacamole around here and usually eat a simple Tex-Mex version – mashed avocado, diced tomatoes, minced onion, salt, garlic, cumin, lemon or lime juice. Very green!

    Your Rotel and sour cream idea sounds very good, too!

    I love the creamy texture of this avocado dip, excellent idea!

    Sour cream adds a lovely element to avocado – two elements, really, the tang and the cream. I always add juice from a lime, which gives it that extra something to put it over the top. Avocados are one of those foods that I would take to the desert island.
