Any recipe that includes cilantro, avocado, and salsa instantly makes it to the top of my list. This one from Weight Watchers is very nice if you don’t mind a little kick in your dip. I don’t mind.
Creamy Mexican Dip
1 C. plain, fat-free yogurt
1/2 C. salsa (I used salsa verde, but any kind will do)
1/2 avocado, sliced
1/3 C. cilantro
1/4 C. red onion, chopped
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. salt
Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Garnish with more cilantro and onion, and diced or sliced avocado.
Serve with tortilla chips, or as a sauce to use in place of sour cream. I used some of it as a topping for chicken tacos last week and it was delicious. You can also add some drained, canned black beans to make it a sturdier, more filling appetizer.

oh my. this is now on my must-make list for 2012.
Wow, I love this idea of a dip! I make guacamole but I’d love to try this version of yours one of these days. Thanks for posting.
Malou – it’s so easy and way less expensive than guacamole… all those avocados add up in Chicago! Thanks for following 🙂
Loved this dip!!! More please.
