Simply mouth watering avocado dip recipe

The creamy texture and delicate taste of avocado makes it the ideal ingredient of any dip, starting from the traditional Mexican guacamole to countless other dip recipes, both savoury and sweet. Guacamole itself can be made in countless variations, and I still have not found any, which is not to my taste. Here below is a selection of my favourite avocado dips recipes, starting from my preferred Guacamole recipe to continue with a few savoury avocado dips and, to conclude, a super tasty and totally guilt free sweet dip.

  • 1-2 chilli, stems and seeds removed, minced (optional)
