Creamy Avocado-Cilantro Dip

I am terrible about letting magazines pile up without reading them. Then I feel guilty to just toss them in the recycling bin, so I spend time flipping through them, and tearing out a page here and there before tossing. Today is a magazine purge day. Saw this recipe in a Rachael Ray from July/August 2012 (yes, yes – it’s been over a year, don’t judge) and thought I’d try posting it here to try later, instead of tearing the page out and letting it sit around the house for a few more months. It sounds delish, I’ll make it soon for a football game snack.


  • 2 avocados, pitted and chopped
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice


Using a food processor, puree all ingredients. Season to taste. Serve dip with tortilla chips, crackers, or strips of fresh veggies.

  8. […] Magazine purge, #9! I think this is the last one for today, but don’t hold me to it. This one is from Rachael Ray’s Alphabet Stew, April 2013. I am skipping the letters cut out of puff pastry, we’ll use a loaf of fresh, crusty bread instead. […]
