Summer Favorite: Quick & Easy Avocado Dip

DSC_0708-2

It’s that time of year! The weather is warming up, the kids are playing outside more and I’ve got my flower and garden beds planted.

One of the things I planted this year is cilantro, and I’m so excited about it!

I love to make avocado dip in the summer time, and even though it’s not summer yet, I couldn’t wait any longer when I knew my cilantro was ready.

This recipe is enough for two people to fill a small mixing bowl. Since avocado doesn’t keep fresh for long, I like to only make enough for a day or two, so none goes to waste.

*If you’re wanting to make a large amount for a party or a large amount of people, just triple the recipe*

Ingredients:

2 avocados

1/2 tomato

1/2 onion

1 jalapeno pepper

1 lime

Bunch of cilantro (about 1/4 – 1/2 cup)

1 tsp. salt

With a knife, half each avocado and use a spoon to scrape out the middle. Next, use a potato masher to mash the avocado until it is mushy.

Next, add your chopped ingredients: tomatoes, onions, jalapenos,  and cilantro.

Slice a lime and squeeze out the juice into the bowl.

Add salt and stir well!

Serve with your favorite tortilla chips – mine are the Tostitos Cantina Thin ‘N Crispy 🙂
