Avocado Dip

My husband has been asking me to use more avocados in our meals.  I did some Googling and I only came across guacamole or using it as a garnish.  I was so excited when I found this at My Baking Addiction.  Looked super easy to make.  I cut the recipe in half since it was the first time I was making it I didn't want to end up with a lot and we don't like it. 

Next time I will cut the avocado into pieces.  I mashed it with a fork and it felt lost in the dip.  I'm also going to try to use 2 avocados next time. If it goes well I will update this post with my changes.  Also the cumin gives it a slight brown tint so make sure you garnish to make it all pretty!  After making this dip I thought "What are we going to eat this with???".  I decided to make some Baked Garlic Pita Chips (recipe coming soon).  They turned out really well and were perfect for this dip.  The kids also loved the chips as a snack.  Hasan kept asking if he could have more.

Avocado Dip
Adapted from My Baking Addiction

1 avocado, mashed
3/4 cup low fat sour cream (for a thicker dip use less)
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp Sriracha
1/4 + 1/8 cup salsa
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup diced tomatoes (seeded)
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
additional cilantro, green onions, tomatoes and cheddar cheese for garnish

In a small bowl, mix together sour cream, cumin and Sriracha.

In a large bowl, mash avocado.  Add sour cream mixture and salsa and fold in.  Add tomatoes, cheese, salt and black pepper and mix well.  Refrigerate for 1 hour and garnish.  Serve with some baked pita chips!
