Creamy Cilantro Avocado Dip

I’ve been working with Simply 7 Snacks for years now and have tried, I think, all of their chips. But, I have to say that their Jalapeno Lentil Chips are my actual favorite. I was worried that they wouldn’t have any spice to them, like some jalapeno products, but they have the perfect balance of spicy and sweet. Plus, their light lentil chips are already my favorite chip base they make (quinoa chips are a close second).

These chips are honestly good straight out of the bag, but I like serving them with something creamy and herb-packed to balance out the sweet and the heat like this Creamy Cilantro Avocado Dip. It’s a completely addictive flavor combo and I’m not ashamed to admit that I did not share the particular bag or dip batch that I made for these photos. ALL MINE.

If you’re not a cilantro fan (I know you are out there), then you could leave the cilantro out without too much worry or substitute chives if you some light herb/onion flavors.

Let me just warn you. If you’re making this dip for more than a few people, make a double batch. It’ll go quick!

processor

Directions

1) In a food processor, pulse together Greek yogurt, avocado, and lime juice until smooth. Then add cilantro, cumin, oregano, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, and salt and pulse to combine.

2) Spoon dip into serving bowl and serve with chips. If you store the dip for later, place plastic wrap directly on the surface of the dip to prevent browning.

Dip keeps fine in the fridge for a few days.

I love the creaminess of this dip. It tastes really rich, but the base is just Greek Yogurt and avocado. That’s it!

Creamy start.

I recommend pulsing that stuff together and then adding in the spices, cilantro, and lime juice. BOOM.

Spice city.

I love the speckled green and red in this dip. It’s a hint that you’re in for spicy flavor!

If you don’t have a food processor, you can mince the cilantro and mash everything together. No big deal, but it probably won’t be quite as creamy as with the food processor.

Done deal!

You could dip pretty much any chip in this glorious dip (or veggie) but these Jalapeno lentil chips go particularly well I think.

These guys are good.

Open a few bags of chips with a big bowl of this dip and your summer party will be off to a great start.

I can personally guarantee that this creamy cilantro avocado dip will be featured at a few of my summer hang outs this year. It should be featured at yours also!

  1. We have so many avocados in Mexico, I’m definitely trying this! All the creamy guac here is way too spicy for my kids so love the recipes I can tweak at home:)

  2. Yum! Tastes like a creamed guacamole. I made this to go with some battered fried fish. I swapped sour cream for the yogurt, and greatly upped the amount of coriander, because I love coriander! I also tweaked the seasoning/spices to taste. Thanks for the recipe.
