Avocado Lime Ranch Dip

Dips, Dressings, & Sauces · January 3, 2014

Creamy and delicious Avocado Lime Ranch Dip - great for dipping and easy to make! { lilluna.com } Recipe includes mayo, cilantro, lime juice, avocado, garlic, and sour cream.

I love dips. Really, it’s almost impossible for me to have chips or any kind of appetizer for that matter without one. Are you with me? My kids may be slightly obsessed too (especially if it’s ranch or ketchup). Over the past few years they’ve also become obsessed with the Cafe Rio Ranch Dressing recipe we make all the time now with Mexican food and quesadillas. It’s our favorite!!

When I saw this recipe for Avocado Lime Ranch Dip from Betty Crocker, I knew I had to try it. It’s thicker than the Cafe Rio dressing, but is delicious and makes a great dip for tortilla chips as well as a great topper for any and all Mexican food.

If you love avocados, cilantro and sour cream you’ll definitely want to bookmark this recipe. It takes minutes to make and is a great addition to any Mexican meals (especially Taco Salad!!)

OMG, this looks amazing! I am completely obsessed with ranch and have been known to order items in a restaurant solely based on whether or not I can get a side of ranch. I am going to have to make this soon. Like maybe right now.

    Lil' Luna

    LOL!! I LOVE ranch too!! Would love to know what you think of it if you try it. 🙂

Avacado, lime, ranch… how could this not catch my eye! I have the ingredients and “it’s whats for dinner” side dish! 🙂 Thanks!

    Lil' Luna

    You’ll have to let me know what you think!! It is SO yummy! 😀

This looks so good Kristyn! I’ve been obsessed with dips lately!! My blog is going to become just a giant index of dip 🙂 Pinning this one!

    Lil' Luna

    Lil' Luna

    Trust me – they take tacos to a new level!! 😀 Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

This looks perfect for Super Bowl! How much cilantro does it call for? It says 1/4, but not a 1/4 of what. 🙂 I’m assuming a 1/4 cup, but I’d hate to guess wrong and mess it up!

Lucie Palka

I’m growing cilantro in my garden this year and looking for as many ways to use it. Since I love dips and avocados, I think this one is perfect! I can’t wait to try it so I’m pinning this one! I just didn’t get how much cilantro I need, is it a 1/4 cup?

    Lil' Luna

    So fun!! I wish I was growing cilantro. I buy it ALL The time. And I updated the recipe… it’s 1/4 bunch which ends up being about 1/2 – 3/4 cup. 😉

How far can this be made in advance? I’m cooking for a LARGE group on a camping trip and need to prep as much as I can in advance. If it could be done up to two days in advance without turning brown, that would be wonderful!

    Lil' Luna

    I’m pretty sure it will last a few days, but every time I make this recipe it’s gone within 24 hours so I’m not sure. Sorry! 🙁 If you’re looking for another great one, I know FOR SURE that the Cafe Rio Ranch Dressing lasts up to 1 week or 2 and is always a hit!

Rob

I’ve seen this dip a couple of times and none of the recipes call for Ranch. Is this a massive oversight from all reposters or am I just slow?

PS it looks great!

Jessica

I was wondering how long this dip could stay before I served it, could i make it 3 hrs in advance? Just worried about the avocados turning brown

    Lil' Luna

    I haven’t tried making it in far advance. 3 hrs should be fine, but I wouldn’t do it any more than that. I hope you like it, as much as we do!
