High in fat it a great thing when it comes to avocados. Claims like this is what is wrong with the food market. Dairy products (especially those marked "reduced fat") are incredible poor health choices often loaded with modified corn starch and high fructose corn syrup. Both of which are not found in avocados. Something to consider while eating real food: avocados are packed with 40% of your recommended daily fiber needs, 20% of vitamins B-6 & slightly more of C, 10% magnesium & some calcium and vitamin A. Not to mention nearly 3 grams of protein. Cool dip for a sporting event or after a late night when you were reaching for a pizza anyway.

I grow my own broccoli, so I always have fresh or frozen on hand. When our kids were little, it was a great way to get them to eat their veggies. Now that they're grown, it's still a favorite! Try it with curry powder instead of the chili powder for a tasty variation.

It seems like with the mayo and sour cream this recipe would be unhealthy. At least an avocado is a healthy fat. If you make a guacamole using an avocado and leaving out the sour cream, it wouldn't be bad for you.

I left out the mayo, added 3/4 C. salsa with corn and black beans, and 1/4 C. chopped water chestnuts. It was wonderful. everyone loved it. I think the trick is cooking the broccoli until tender so it mushes when you process it.

I made this exactly as listed, but no one at either of the 2 parties I served it at liked it much.

This was wonderful and so quick to prepare. I didn't have fresh broccoli, so used frozen and it was fine. I received lots of compliments on it. Great hit for all ages and a great way to sneak in some veggies. Thanks for the recipe!
