Serves 5-7 | Prep Time 10 | Cook Time 6


1 8oz cream cheese block
2 ripe avocados
1 12 oz jar salsa - I like the one with the black bean and corn in it - but it's totally your choice
1 cup finely shredded mexican blend cheese

In medium/small oval casserole dish, put cream cheese block and microwave on medium for about 2 minutes - you want it to be spreadable to make an even layer on bottom of dish

Dice avocado into 1/4" pieces, and create even layer

Pour salsa over avocado in even layer

Sprinkle cheese over top

I like to stick in the broiler for a couple of minutes just to take the chill off the cheese, but it is also great served just as is.

You need a sturdy chip with this, or there will be breakage :)

Pairs Well With


I know there are about a million different versions of this layered dip out there, but this one I think is a little different because it doesn't have the "normal" mexican dip ingredients in it

A dash of local for every season
