  2. Robin (Masshole Mommy) says:

    I have a newly discovered love of avocados, so I am all over this. It sounds awesome to me!

    1. It’s so good! I am going to be trying avocado a lot more!

  3. Huge Mexican food lover here, so definitely got to try this especially for tortilla chips as a dip!! 😉

  4. I LOVE avocados!! It certainly would not be a new food for me! What would be new is mixing it into sour cream with a hint of lime. I also love Mexican foods and that Mexi Mountain may soon make an appearance in my life!

    1. The hint of lime throws it over the edge!

  5. This looks delicious, and the best part is that even though it is pretty healthy I think my kids would gobble it up!

    1. It is a pretty healthy dip! Very flavorful though!

  6. One of my favorite restaurants makes something like this. I have always wondered how to re-create it! Thank you for sharing this.

    1. You’ll have to give it a try and tell me how it compares!

  7. Catherine S says:

    This looks really yummy. We make tacos several times a month. I will have to make this next time.

    1. It is awesome on tacos too!

  8. I’ll have to try this, my kids don’t eat avocado and I rarely do, too but this sounds and looks good! I love how easy it is, pinning, thanks Echo!

    1. This is so good! They won’t even know it’s in there!

  9. I love Mexican style food too! I could totally make this! It looks great!

    1. It is so easy and so super tasty!

  10. We LOVE avocado around here! I make a very simple cream but never thought to add ranch or sour cream (maybe because I don’t eat dairy?! lol!). It sounds delicious though!!

    1. It’s such an awesome flavor combination!

  11. Yes, please. These tastes were all made to be together, don’t you agree?

  12. Michelle Hwee says:

    Oh man you had me at avocado! I love the recipe for this crema, it looks really good and I can just picture so many foods I can eat this with! Thanks for sharing.

    1. It would go wonderfully with so much!

  13. If I was a food I’d BE an avocado! I love them plain, as guacamole and we even make a chocolate mousse with avocados that is to die for. I’ll have to tweak your recipe a little bit to make it vegan (omit ranch, use vegan sour cream) but wow, what a great topping for all things Mexican! I’m pinning to make as soon as my avos are ripened. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I need to try avocado pudding!

  14. YUM!!! This sounds amazing and would be such a fun addition on so many things!! So glad you linked up at Snickerdoodle Sunday- hope to see your latest makes next week!

  15. This looks awesome! I love avocados and I think it’s great you’re finding ways to work them into your family’s diet. I’m a new food blogger and found you on a link party. I’ve followed your social sites and hope we can connect on those. Can’t wait to read more of your blog. Becky

    1. Thanks Becky! So glad to meet you!

  16. I love avocados! This dip looks delish and I love all the extras in it to make it more flavorful!

  17. Love all the ingredients! Avocado and lime together sounds yummy! It looks so simple to make – nothing like a homemade dip! I’m going to make this!

  18. I just had avocado for the first time a few weeks ago (crazy, I know!) I fell in LOVE with them! I want to make everything I can with them now so I’ll definitely be trying this.

    1. It is so good! Let me know what you think!

  19. Oh my goodness! This looks absolutely amazing! The perfect snack for a movie night!

    1. So yummy as a chip dip!

  20. I am loving this recipe Echo ♥ Avocados are my favorite. Even though i’m lactose intolerant I am trying this!! so yummy 🙂

    1. Hopefully, it’s worth it! Maybe the avocado will balance it out for you!

  21. Sharon Phillips says:

    I have never ate avocado’s before. This looks really good. I have no idea on what they even taste like. You made it look like it tastes good so now I am going to have to try this one.

    1. It is so delicious! I have never tried them before either!

    1. It would be a great salad dressing too!

  22. Oh I have an avocado sitting in my kitchen right now. I know what’s going to be happening with it now! This looks delish

    Thanks for linking up to Marvelous Monday on Smart Party Planning.

  23. Katarina K says:

    I love love avocado! One tip also – you can make amazing face mask out of avocado 🙂

    1. Ohhh, I’ll have to look that up.

  24. This looks super yummy and easy which is a win win, for sure. Thanks for sharing!

    Stopping by from the linkup!

    1. It is super yummy and easy, just the way I like my recipes!

  25. This would be great on fish tacos. Actually would be great on lots of things! (found you on Tasty Tuesdays)

    1. It would be great on fish tacos! Awesome idea!

  26. Never tried avocado? I don’t understand how that is even possible?! Ok, growing up in California and now living in one of the largest avocado growing regions of the world may skew my perspective. I like them anyway I can get them.

    I would probably get a big spoon and eat this straight out of the bowl… all by myself. Yeah, did I mention I kind of like avocado. Ha ha!

    Thanks for sharing on Tasty Tuesdays. Hope to see you back next week.

  27. This sounds like a delicious alternative to guacamole. I might try this on my chicken tacos the next time I make them.
