Avocado Bean Dip Recipe

Publisher Photo
I love guacamole! But I add beans to boost the amount of fiber in this version. It has a similar consistency to hummus and is perfect for dipping chips, pita or veggies. —Raquel Haggard, Edmond, Oklahoma

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 13, 2013

Yum! This dip was gone in no time. I used a dash of salt instead of the 1/4 tsp. and it was amazing!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 4, 2013

I had this recipe for about 5 months and I made this dip about 10 times now. It is a great snack...can't stop at just a few bites. Brought it to a work potluck and everyone wanted the recipe.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 1, 2013

Followed this recipe and used cannellini beans. It is such a satisfying dip. The lime juice and cilantro is the perfect amount. The only reason I didn't give it a 5-star rating is because I don't think it needs 1/4 teaspoon of salt. I think the salt should be "to taste."
