Avocado Spicy Dip Recipe


  • 2 large ripe avocados, pitted and scooped
  • 1-2 jalapeño peppers, finely chopped (adjust according to heat preference)
  • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • A pinch of cayenne pepper or a dash of hot sauce (optional for extra heat)


  1. Mash the Avocados: In a medium bowl, use a fork to mash the avocados to your desired consistency. Some like it smooth, while others prefer it a bit chunky.
  2. Mix in the Flavors: Add the chopped jalapeño peppers, red onion, minced garlic, lime juice, and chopped cilantro to the mashed avocados. Stir well to combine.
  3. Season: Sprinkle in the cumin, salt, and pepper. If you’re looking for an additional kick, add a pinch of cayenne pepper or a few dashes of your favorite hot sauce. Mix well.
  4. Chill and Serve: For the best flavor, cover the bowl with plastic wrap, pressing it directly onto the surface of the dip to prevent oxidation. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before serving.
  5. Enjoy: Serve your spicy avocado dip with tortilla chips, sliced veggies, or as a spread on sandwiches and wraps.

Tips for Perfect Spicy Avocado Dip:

  • Preventing Browning: The lime juice helps prevent the avocado from browning quickly, but pressing plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the dip before chilling also helps keep it green and fresh.
  • Adjusting the Heat: Start with one jalapeño pepper and taste before adding more. Remember, you can always add more heat, but you can’t take it away.
  • Customizing Your Dip: Feel free to add diced tomatoes, corn, or black beans to the dip for additional texture and flavor.
  • Serving Suggestion: Garnish with extra chopped cilantro, a sprinkle of chili powder, or lime wedges for a visually appealing presentation.

This Avocado Spicy Dip is a testament to the versatility of avocados and the joy of sharing good food. Its creamy texture, combined with the perfect blend of spices, makes it a satisfying treat that pairs well with a variety of dippables. Whether you’re feeding a crowd or treating yourself, this dip promises a delightful flavor experience.
