Don’t confuse this dip with guacamole, it is far superior. This is a lighter, more refreshing dip with a slightly stronger lime flavor to it. It was actually made by accident when I was trying to duplicate guacamole without garlic or onions in it so my son could also enjoy something other than plain tortilla chips. I think I actually like this even better!
3 ripe avocados
2 large ripe tomatoes, diced
8oz cream cheese, softened
4oz plain Greek yogurt
3 TBSP milk
1- 1/2 TBSP cilantro
1/2 tsp chipotle
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
Beat together cream cheese, yogurt, and milk in medium mixing bowl.
Mix in cilantro, sea salt, chipotle, and black pepper.
In separate bowl, mash avocado.
Squeeze lime over mashed avocado and mix well.*
Add to cream cheese mixture and beat until mixed thoroughly.
Stir in diced tomatoes.
Serve chilled with tortilla chips.
Store leftover in a container with plastic wrap pushed down on top of dip so no air touches the dip. Air is what causes the avocado to turn brown. Although it’s fine to eat the browned dip, it doesn’t look very appetizing.
*Tip for limes:
Roll limes in hands or on counter-top to loosen the juices and you will get a lot more juice. Also use a lemon squeezer to get the maximum amount of juice.
