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!:
- sour cream
- 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!
We make some sort of Mexican dish at least once a week so you know I’ll be making these stuff a ton!!
