Rule #174: You can’t please everyone. You’re not an avocado.
Avocados have to be one of the most universally loved foods. Add in some goat cheese, and dear sweet deliciousness we’ve got a good dip on our hands. This dip is easy to whip together and keep in the fridge for your snacking pleasure or as a crowd-pleasing appetizer!
If you’re not a goat cheese fan, try subbing in Feta or Cotija cheese or just double the amount of cream cheese.
We serve ours with pita chips when we’re feeling naughty and veggies when we’re feeling healthy. Corey would eat it on literally anything we let him. Last night, he put it on some Creamy Curried Fish and dipped his tomatoes in it. Whatever works, bud. You do you.
All we need to do for this little Avocado and Goat Cheese Dip Delight is to scoop some avocados out of their shells. Add in some garlic, cumin, and Kosher salt. Blend it up until smooth.
If you don’t have a standing mixer, just use a big bowl and a good ole hand mixer. It’s all the same!
Next, add in your lime juice softened cheese (softened meaning room temperature). Make sure to blend and then scrape down the sides of the bowl to get the extra goodness hanging on out there.
Keep blending until it’s a smooth mixture like this one:
Garnish with a little cilantro and get yo dip on!

This is so good! I omitted the garlic because I am one of the few people in the world who isn’t wild about it. Even without the garlic, it is a total winner! (My husband and kids agree.) 🙂
I’m so happy to hear that!! Thank you so much!
Easy to make and delicious. My picky eater (daughter) liked it. Good with pita chips or everything pretzels (daugther liked these with it better). Added a pinch more salt.
Oh! Pretzels sound super yummy with it! Thank you!!
