I love avocado in its many forms. From salad to guacamole, I have enjoy having this fruit as a side. I have made this particular avocado dip over and over again and experimented with different flavours. I used to use basic hot chilli powder.
However, now I use cayenne pepper and dried chilli flakes (chipotle flakes are also great). This gives it a more smoky, earthy flavour. The herbs used in this dip give it a sweetness that complements the whole dish. Here’s how to make my spicy avocado dip.
Prep: 15 mins
-Lemon juice/1 Fresh lemon
-1/2 tsp Dried Chilli Flakes or Chipotle Flakes
-1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper
-1 Tbsp Olive Oil
-Pinch of salt and pepper (optional)
-Chopped Tomatoes (optional)
Cut the avocados in half.
Place the avocado halves in a blender.
Add some lemon juice or 1/2 lemon
Add some garlic paste.
Add a sprinkle of coriander, parsley and chives.
Add dried chilli flakes
Add a sprinkle of cayenne pepper
Blend together until smooth (add 2 Tbsp of water if the consistency is still lumpy)
Pour the dip in a bowl and it is ready to serve.
