Since it is picnic and barbecue season, I thought I would share a recipe that I bring to various potlucks throughout the summer: avocado dip. It is delicious and easy, makes a ton (which occasionally means leftovers!), and you can either make it entirely out of fresh ingredients or you can buy some pre-made ingredients.
- Approx. 5 avocados
- Garlic salt (or garlic powder and salt, or fresh garlic and salt)
- Lemon juice
- Homemade plain yogurt (or sour cream)
- Salsa (approx. 2 cups, either jarred or homemade)
- Cheese (a Mexican blend, or cheddar, Monterey jack, etc.)
- Fresh tomatoes
- Green onions
Mash 5 avocados with cumin, garlic salt, and lemon to taste. Layer on the bottom of a 9×13 casserole dish. Cover with yogurt, then salsa for the next two layers. Sprinkle cilantro over the salsa. Add a cheese layer, then top with fresh diced tomatoes and green onions. Serve with tortilla chips.
