If you’re here for this crazy good avocado dip then don’t worry, you are still in the right place! This avocado dip has been crazy popular since posting it. I can see why too! It’s creamy, the perfect party dip, game day dip, and it’s basically a bowl full of avocados. Which is pretty much perfection for me.

I have updated the original post with pretty new pictures. Enjoy friends and thanks for being here!

I hope you all enjoyed your 4th of July celebrations! We’re still visiting family so we had lots of fun with cousins and of course there was plenty of food to be eaten!

One of the things I made was this Avocado Dip. It comes together in minutes so it’s perfect to make for a BBQ, picnic, get together, and a game day football party. It can be made ahead of time too. I actually prefer this dip after it’s had time to refrigerate for about 1-2 hours.

The two questions I get asked all the time about this dip :Β 

  • Does it brown? The short answer is, YES, eventually it does brown just like anything with avocado. But, thanks to the salsa verde which is full of acidity with lime and tomatillos, it stays pretty for at least a day and a half. After that it starts looking a little sketchy but it is still delicious. I would definitely plan on making this for a party, game day get together, etc when you know that people will eat it.
  • How do you get 5 or 6 ripe avocados at one time? haha, this question is very common. There is no secret but I will say that I have had good luck with buying the bulk pack (5 or 6 avocados per bag) of avocados from Sam’s Club and Costco. I feel like they are all about at the same ripeness so they are all ready to go around the same time. I only make this dip 1-2 times per year because let’s be honest, avocados are expensive and so temperamental πŸ™‚

Simply combine 5 INGREDIENTS into a mixing bowl and stir together. Either eat right away or let it refrigerate for 1-3 hours before serving.Β 

Serve up with some tortilla chips and watch it disappear. I couldn’t help but sneak several bites of this after I made it. It was so good! Plus, you have to taste test, right…… just be careful to not eat it all before the party arrives or event. Trust me, it’s harder to stop than you might think πŸ™‚Β

NOTE :: I can either find canned salsa verde in a 24 oz jar or a small 7 oz can. The recipe calls for 1 cup (which is 8 oz) but I always just use the cheaper, 7 oz can and call it good. I’m a cheap-o with my grocery budget and don’t like spending the extra few dollars to get the remaining 1 oz.Β 

You can find the canned salsa verde by the salsas or by the Mexican/International food area. It’s pretty common so it should be really easy to find.

I also want to add that this recipe is very adaptable and versatile. If your avocados are softer and creamier then you may want to use less salsa verde. If you only have 5 ripe avocados then just use 5. I would not use any less than 5. Just FYI. If you want some spice then add some chopped jalapeno or chopped cilantro.

    January 29, 2017 at 12:06 am I am not a fan of salsa verde, to put it nicely, any suggestions of what to use in lieu of it?? It looks AMAZING! ?

      January 29, 2017 at 3:28 pm Hi Jennine! It really is so good. You could try using a salsa you like in place of the salsa verde. Not sure how it would taste or turn out because I have only ever made it with the salsa verde. If it helps at all, the salsa verde is not spicy at all in this recipe. The creamy avocado balances it out really nicely. If it's spice you're worried about then you could always leave out the red onion. Hopefully that helps and let me know if you use another salsa! I'd love to know how it turns out.

    January 30, 2017 at 3:44 pm How about green onions? Has anyone experimented with this... I have green onions on hand but not red ones, was just wondering what the ratio would be or how many green onions to add. Thanks!!

      January 30, 2017 at 9:28 pm I think green onions would be a great substitution! I've never used the in this avocado dip but I see no reason why it wouldn't work. You would still get that onion flavor from them.

      March 16, 2017 at 11:08 pm Hi Jackie. I have only used the Herdez brand of salsa verde. It's the only one I can ever find at my grocery store. I hope that helps you and that you can find it at your store :)

    March 17, 2017 at 3:11 pm I love the simplicity of this dip! I might make mine spicy by adding a diced jalapeno. Thanks! I found you at the Weekend Potluck.

    March 18, 2017 at 10:54 pm Won't the avocados turn brown in this dip?

      March 19, 2017 at 11:18 am They actually don't! I was surprised when I first made it cause I thought for sure it would turn brown. If you left it in the fridge for days and days then yes eventually it would turn brown. The salsa verde has nice acidity to it which keeps the avocados green. If you're worried you could always add some fresh lime juice as that will also help hold the color of the avocados. I hope that helps :)

    April 13, 2017 at 9:05 am I was thinking of using jarred salsa verde. Should it matter. Going to make for Easter get together!

      April 13, 2017 at 4:34 pm Yes! That is exactly what I use. The jarred salsa verde. Mine actually comes in a small can but it's the same thing. I have also bought it in a jar (like a salsa jar) before. It just depends on what store I am shopping at. I hope you love this. Whenever I go to Sam's Club I buy the bulk bag of avocados just so I can make this dip :)

      April 22, 2017 at 10:02 am I am not sure. I have only ever used Salsa Verde. I know it would work but just not sure how it would taste?? I have this game day dip recipe on the blog that uses Italian dressing. It's really good and also has avocado in it https://togetherasfamily.com/2017/01/game-day-dip/

    May 2, 2017 at 10:19 am Yum! This looks amazing! I'm planning on making this dip for a work pot luck on Friday - I'm curious about how many people will this recipe serve? Trying to figure out if I need to double it (my office has about 10 people)

      May 2, 2017 at 7:21 pm It is so good! This makes quite a bit of dip and I am sure it would be plenty for 10 people. I am assuming with it being a potluck that there will be other food, so this recipe will plenty for the 10 people. I hope you all love it and enjoy your potluck! I love potlucks :) I'll add that the most recent time I made this, I made it for my entire family (siblings, cousins, nieces, nephews, parents, grandparents, etc.) and it was plenty for all of us. There were lots of people and it was a potluck situation as well.

    July 8, 2017 at 8:22 pm I made this today for a party. Absolutely delicious. Didn't look as pretty as the picture here. Maybe it was because my avacados were too ripe or the fact that I didn't rinse the black beans (seems weird to me), but the taste was absolutely amazing. I also added more red onions. Soooooooooooo good. Thanks for the recipe.

      July 8, 2017 at 11:25 pm So glad you loved it. Yea, it's probably because the beans were not rinsed. Rinsing the beans gets that blackish liquid off of them which will help with the look of the dip. You're very welcome! Thanks for coming back to leave your comment.

    July 23, 2017 at 12:33 pm I made this dip last night for a BBQ and it was a huge hit. Everyone loved it including the kids. I'll add jalapeΓ±os and a little cilantro next time. Thanks for the recipe!

    August 24, 2017 at 7:18 pm Can this be made one day before and refridgerated or does it turn brown overnight?

      August 24, 2017 at 9:24 pm It actually won't brown like a regular avocado will. The salsa verde sauce slows down the browning process. But, I probably would advise making it the night before. I would say you could let it sit in the fridge for a few hours before serving. For the best and freshest taste that's what I would do. Eventually it will brown, but it does stay good for about 2 days.

    December 16, 2017 at 10:32 am Having friends over for dinner this evening so I made this to snack on before hand. I made only helf the recipe as there will be only 4 of us. I added a little Italian parsely and minced garlic. My daughter stopped as I was finishing it up. She said I should have made a full batch so she could take some with her. She requested I make it again and give her some. I think this will be a new favorite in our family! 😊
