This isn’t guacamole. We’ve created a creamier dip by switching up the texture with some added sour cream. A generous addition of chopped cilantro adds even more bright green flavor, and a little bit of minced pepper keeps everything perky. Pack up a serving and add it to your lunchbox or keep the ingredients in the fridge and mash up some dip for an after-work snack.

Creamy Avocado Dip

2 ripe avocados
1 jalapeño, minced (use less and be sure to remove seeds if you don’t like spicy things)
1 lime, cut into wedges
1/4 cup sour cream
1 small bunch cilantro, chopped

In a bowl, combine the avocados, jalapeño, cilantro, sour cream (feel free to add more or less), and the juice of as many lime wedges as you’d like; season with salt and pepper to taste.

Serve with tortilla chips or veggies.

For even more flavor, try adding some of all of the following: garlic paste, red onion, cumin, fresh corn.
