Creamy and tangy with a spicy kick.


  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup picante sauce
  • 2 Tbs finely chopped cilantro
  • 1 Tbs lemon (or lime) juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • Slice the avocado in half and remove the pit. Scrape all of the avocado out of the shell. Place in a small bowl and mash until smooth.
  • Add remaining ingredients to the bowl and stir until well combined.
  • Cover with plastic wrap directly on top of the dressing to avoid air reaching the avocado and turning the dressing brown. Refrigerate until ready to use.
