Creamy Avocado-Ranch Dip

Recipe by  

"I haven't seen a recipe combining avocados with cream cheese and sour cream, so I made one! Came up with this creamy blend of cream cheese, sour cream, and avocado seasoned with ranch dressing mix, hot sauce, etc. Excellent with tortilla chips. Add more hot sauce, if you like (I don't add lemon juice because the sour cream already gives it tartness). We couldn't stop eating it!"

This was easy and so good. I was looking for an avocado ranch dressing and this was the closest I came to one. Great as a dip, but add a little milk or heavy cream and it makes a good dressing, too. Works well poured over salted cherry tomatoes with blue cheese crumbles or with a salad. Since my food processor is not very big, I used a blender and flash blended to the consistency I was looking for. It's even better the next day. I'm sure most of you know but Neufchatel cheese is simply 1/3 less fat cream cheese.

Made as chip dip for the Superbowl. Next time I would do a little less ranch and more avocado.

Would it be wrong to eat this stuff with a spoon? That's how good it was! I added a clove of minced garlic and liberal amounts of fresh ground pepper. Definitely needs to sit a few hours to let flavors meld. Not a scrap was left... and MEN were asking for the recipe!! A keeper for sure

Made this for a graduation party and everyone loved it. I added a little minced garlic (about 1/2 tsp.) and more hot sauce (a little over a teaspoon). Leave time for the flavors to come together in the refrigerator - it tasted even better after sitting for a while.

I multiplied this recipe 5 times and used it for 100 people. I served with corn chips,It sat on the tables and did not break down this is why I give it 10 stars. Rich CCP

This dip is fantastic! Especially if you love ranch! I use up to 6 avocados to give it some extra flavoring. Its best served chilled. Slice up a loaf of french bread and drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with garlic powder. Toast in the oven till lightly browned. great to use to dip or spread the dip on.

This was very good, but I really like avocado and added more than it asked for. I only made a 1/4 batch and it was a lot for 2 adults and 2 small kids. Be aware of how much you need b/c the dip does start to brown (b/c of the avocado) so it starts looking unattractive if you are wanting to keep it. You could maybe put lemon juice in it to stop the browning, but not sure what that would do to the taste. But, this was very good.

I'm not a huge fan of spicy, so I left out the hot sauce. But otherwise I thought this recipe was awesome!
