Avocado Lime Ranch Dressing

Avocado Ranch Dip

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 tasty topper for any and all Mexican food.

If you love avocados, cilantro and sour cream you’ll definitely want to bookmark this recipe. The addition of avocado and not putting in any milk makes this ranch dip thicker and creamier than the Cafe Rio ranch dressing. It also has the most perfect hint of lime! This Avocado Lime Ranch takes minutes to make and is a great addition to any appetizers or Mexican meals (especially Taco Salad!!)

How to make Ranch Dip:

This avocado lime ranch dip only requires 6 ingredients total!:

  • avocado
  • sour cream
  • mayo
  • garlic
  • cilantro
  • lime juice

All you have to do is scoop the avocado out of the the skin (I usually cut in half lengthwise, and use a spoon to remove the pit and then scoop out the inside of the avocado), and place in a food processor or blender. Then, add the remaining five ingredients and blend until everything is combined. And that’s it! It literally takes just a few minutes. Just pop it in the fridge until you’re ready to serve it, and enjoy!

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.

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!

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!
