My sister-in-law made this delicious Avocado Dip when we were camping in Colorado last summer, and it was a huge hit with the whole family. Since then, I have made it for so many get togethers, and I love how easily it comes together.
This Avocado Dip recipe is very forgiving! You can use the basic idea and throw in whatever you have on hand. If I only have four avocados instead of six, no big deal.
The acidity of the salsa verde and lime juice keeps the avocados from turning brown, so this dip will last in the fridge for a day or two after you make it. Serve with chips of course! I also love it with a cheese quesadilla or topping a steak fajita. Fresh corn right off the cob would be amazing, but since it’s not always in season, canned corn works just fine.

I just made this for an impromtu birthday party, and everyone loved it! I hate onions, but I put them through my mini processor & couldn’t tell they were in there. I did run out of time, so I only used 3 avocados, but this recipe makes a LOT of dip, so it wasn’t missed. I couldn’t fit it all into the dish to bring, so I left a small container at home, which my daughter ate for lunch the next day- no chips needed.
I will definately make this again, and trust me- I’m a picky eater. I don’t like black beans either, but everything blended well with this and it was amazing!
Oh that’s so great! Thanks for letting me know!
What an absolutely beautiful dip, this is going to go perfect for our dieting group this weekend, I am glad I found you on pinterest. The avocado is a truly amazing food.
That’s so great! Hope you all enjoy!
Would fresh corn need to be cooked before adding to the mix?
Hi Tiffany, great question. I think this dip would be fabulous with fresh corn! If it were me, I would give it a quick boil (maybe 3 minutes) just to soften it a bit, but that is just my preference. Hope you enjoy!
We made this for a large gathering and it was a HIT – people raved about it and everyone asked for the recipe. thank you for posting this – we will be making it many more times!
So glad to hear that!
I brought this to a potluck today and noticed that most people were ignoring the chips and scooping this straight onto their plates as a salad. When I got home, I ate some from a bowl and it was delightful.
I’m so glad you liked it! Thanks for leaving me a note!

We are doing a guacamole roundup on Friday for Guacamole Day and wondered if we could include this delicious recipe and picture in our post. There would be a link for the recipe to your post along with your blogs name.
Thanks so much.
Sure, thanks for seeking permission!

So glad. I love that dip too!

This was a huge hit. I opted to grill fresh corn, but I’m sure it’s great with canned too. This is a delicious appetizer. The recipe yields a great deal of dip, so you could probably half the recipe for a small crowd.
I will definitely make this again.
Thanks for your comment Debra!
This looks delicious! Do you suppose it could be frozen and enjoyed later?
I have not frozen this recipe before so I’m not sure, but I have heard that you can freeze avocado successfully.

Just ran across this. Was wondering what the nutritional information is? Like calories, sodium, etc.
Sorry Linda, I don’t provide nutritional information for my recipes because I just don’t have the expertise to give you reliable numbers.

Thanks, Julie. Either way it’s very tasty!!

This is a fabulous dip/salad. I left the cilantro out because I hate it. (anyone else out there?) No one ever asks where the cilantro is they just gobble it and ask for recipe. Thanks for the clear directions and the optional ingredients. Chipotle is a great option as is cilantro – I guess.
I know a lot of people leave out cilantro. I’ve heard to some people it tastes like soap?!? Glad you enjoyed and made it to your liking!
