It took me 35 years to learn to like avocados. It wasn’t until a friend of mine brought a dip similar to the one below to our Sunday night Bible study that I actually decided that I liked avocados.
Now…I can’t get enough! I order them from Azure Standard all the time!
Avocados are SO good for you. They contain a good healthy fat…vitamin K…vitamin C…potassium…folate…Vitamin B6…fiber…good stuff!
I’m eating my avocado with tortilla chips…so maybe that’s not the healthiest (because no, a corn chip does not count as a vegetable), but at least I’m getting this good fruit into my system somehow. (BTW, I didn’t know if an avocado was a fruit or a veggie. A quick swagbuck search told me that it was a fruit that tastes like a vegetable. Alrighty then. Oh, and I even earned a swagbuck!)
Spicy Avocado Dip
3/4 cup salsa (more if you want)
juice of one lime or one lemon
½ cup sour cream or kreme fresh
Scoop out the insides of the avocados into a bowl. Add salsa, lime or lemon juice, and sour cream. Stir well until completely mixed. Serve with tortilla chips (we really like the Kettle Brand).
I happen to like this recipe more with lemon juice instead of lime…Matt likes it better with lime. You take your pick. Shucks…add both. Yum!
