I am always looking for new ways to incorporate avocado into my recipes. This recipe for avocado jalapeño cheese dip is so easy to prepare! When preparing a cheese dip, I always start with cream cheese and a sharp cheddar. Then comes the creamy avocado! Some added jalapeño, cilantro, green onion and lime will add the flavors of fresh guacamole. Place the cheese dip in a nice bowl surrounded with your favorite fresh vegetables. It makes a great dip for tortilla chips as well!
Dips, sauces or salsas prepared using fresh avocados are always best served that same day. If you must prepare it the day ahead, place a layer of plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the dip. This will keep the air out and prevent the avocado from turning brown.
