Avocado Ranch Dip with Homemade Chips

I am posting my first recipe to add to MOMS CRAZY COOKING CHALLENGE!! I have wanted to try this recipe out for some time but just haven't.....well this morning I did! I was actually worried about not being able to squeeze this into my schedule (just a bit over scheduled today) doctor appointments, hunting for ballet shoes and new leotard, birthday gift (yes I waited until the day before the party) and grocery shopping for Teacher Appreciation Breakfast at my children's school and homework....yep just a little over scheduled today. Oh well, what does not kill you only makes you stronger...right?

My ingredients....look at those ripe avocados.

Avocados mashed up with herbs and spices

Stirring in greek yogurt

2 avocados

1 cup Greek yogurt

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1-tablespoon fresh chives, finely chopped

1-tablespoon fresh flat-leaf parsley, minced

1 teaspoon dried dill

1-teaspoon onion powder

1-teaspoon garlic powder

1/2-teaspoon kosher salt

Peel and mash avocados. Mix avocados with Greek yogurt and lemon juice. Stir in chives, parsley, dill, onion powder, garlic powder and salt.

Serve with potato chips, pita chips or fresh vegetables for dipping.

Makes 3 cups

Avocado Ranch Dip with Kettle chips (not my homemade ones)

I did try making some homemade chips too....didn't really turn out that great, need a little working on but they were baked and not fried so they were the try.



  1. I've never had avocado ranch dip, so will be making this for sure!!

    1. Hi Vicki, I hope you like it. My husband just tried my dip tonight and LOVED it! He suggested putting it on bread for sandwiches.... so guess what I will be trying tomorrow for lunch??....turkey sandwiches with avocado ranch dip as the spread!

  2. Mmmm...what a delicious twist on ranch dressing! I adore avocados, so I can only imagine how fabulous this must be :)

  3. I love avocado and will definitely make this recipe. I already know it is absolutely delicious.

    I'm a new follower and I wish you all the very best with your college studies.

    I'll see you soon,
