Dip for dinner! I love it!
This wasn't the most low calorie dip in the world but it sure was delicious!!
I didn't measure everything exactly but this is approximately what I put in it. I only had one avocado but I would totally put 2 in next time, it was fantastic!
I got the recipe from Tricia from Once a Month Mom. She said to use either ranch or italian dressing. My original plan was to make 1/2 of it with ranch and 1/2 with fat free zesty italian dressing. I loved the ranch so much that I ended up using it in all of it. I'll make it again with the italian. It would be way less calories with the italian too!
I made homemade tortilla chips with this and ate way too much. It was very filling and it lasted several days in the frig just fine for future lunches and snacks.
