Avocado Spicy Dip Recipe


  • 2 ripe avocados, peeled and pitted
  • 1 small jalapeño, finely chopped (adjust for desired heat)
  • 2 tablespoons red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder (optional for extra heat)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. Prepare the Avocados: In a mixing bowl, mash the avocados with a fork or potato masher to your preferred consistency—some like it chunky, while others prefer a smoother texture.
  2. Mix in the Flavors: Add the finely chopped jalapeño, red onion, minced garlic, lime juice, and chopped cilantro to the mashed avocados. Stir well to combine all the ingredients thoroughly.
  3. Season: Sprinkle in the cumin and salt, adjusting according to taste. For those who enjoy an extra kick, add the chili powder at this stage. Drizzle the olive oil over the mixture and stir well.
  4. Chill: Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, ensuring that the wrap touches the surface of the dip to prevent browning. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.
  5. Serve and Enjoy: Garnish with a sprinkle of chili powder or cilantro leaves before serving. Serve your spicy avocado dip with tortilla chips, fresh veggies, or as a complement to grilled dishes.

Tips for Perfect Avocado Spicy Dip:

  • Choosing Avocados: For the best results, use avocados that are ripe and soft to the touch, as they will mash easily and offer a creamy texture.
  • Adjusting the Heat: The heat level of this dip is easy to customize. Start with a small amount of jalapeño and chili powder, then adjust according to your heat preference.
  • Storage: If you have leftovers, store the dip in an airtight container with a piece of plastic wrap pressed directly onto the surface of the dip to minimize air exposure and prevent browning. Consume within 1-2 days for the best flavor.
  • Serving Suggestions: Beyond chips and veggies, try using this spicy avocado dip as a spread on sandwiches or wraps for an extra layer of flavor.

This Avocado Spicy Dip is a simple yet flavorful way to incorporate the health benefits of avocados into your diet. With its rich texture and bold flavors, it’s sure to become a favorite for any occasion.
