Method

  1. Cut the avocados in half lengthways, remove the stones and peel. Put the avocado in a food processor with the lime juice, Tabasco, garlic and sea salt. Blend until you have a light, elegantly pale green cream.
  2. Transfer the cream to a bowl, cover and chill until ready to serve. To serve, drizzle with a little oil then scatter over the snipped chives. Serve as a dip with tortilla chips or rice crackers.

just made this to go with quesadillas served al fresco, delicious.
And not too spicy for the kids, they love it.

simple and tasty. I'm sitting at the computer with a bowl of this dip and and a packet of tortilla chips and it's very good. I'm having a night in and can't be bothered making much just for myself - this takes seconds to make and works well.

Didn't have tabasco, so chopped a dried chilli instead. Really lovely, totally addictive - couldn't stop eating until the bowl was clean!

Great dip - I loved the zingy taste of it.
I served it with Nachos, Olives, Humous and sundried tomatoes as starter nibbles. Delicious!
