{Today I’m partnering with Kettle Brand to bring you this totally addicting, yet completely healthy avocado dip!}

The summer snacks are in full force over here with this 10 minute garden herb avocado dip.

If there was ever a light and healthy summer dip to love, this is totally it. It’s the simplest, quickest dip you’ll ever make and it’s loaded with two of my favorite ingredients, avocado and basil…and then of course, there’s the fact that we are eating this dip with potato chips.

Yes, yes, YES, potato chips. We are going there and using my favorite sea salt chips for scooping. I love the Kettle Brand Sea Salt potato chips because they’re perfectly light, crisp, and seasoned with just the right amount of salt.

You guys remember how I was in Mexico a few weeks back? Well, my trip to Mexico totally inspired this avocado dip. My mom rented a house in Puerto Vallarta and for many of the nights there she had the nicest Mexican women cook for us. This was totally out of character for a Gerard family vacation, but my mom knows how to work the deals and she got an entire package quite cheap. At first I was really not into having someone else cook for me (I am ALWAYS the one cooking), but it ended up being really fun and I came home with some new inspiration.

Anyway, almost every night they cooked for us, they started off with a giant bowl of guacamole…along with salsa, chips, and queso fundido. YUM! It was so delicious, but the guac was my favorite. So very simple, not loaded with overpowering onions, and not too spicy. It was also incredibly smooth and creamy, which oddly I loved (I typically like a chunkier guacamole). It was more like a pureed avocado dip flavored mostly with just lime and salt.

Honestly, I could have eaten the whole bowl, it was dream food for me.

End result? I came home craving simple, creamy guacamole, and in turn, I created this dip.

It’s similar to Gloria’s (the chef in Mexico) guacamole, but has a resemblance to hummus as well, so instead of calling it one or other, I just went for the all encompassing – dip.

Hey, it works.

As mentioned, this dip is a combo of guacamole and hummus. I wanted a real smooth and creamy dip, so I decided to incorporate tahini. But I also wanted the flavor of avocado, so I added both to a food processor, along with some fresh basil, cilantro, lemon, and lime juice, and pureed until it was smooth, creamy, and perfect.

The final product could not be more addicting. You guys, this dip is honestly so good that I actually feel you need to get up and make it right now. It will take you maybe ten minutes start to finish…assuming you happen to have all the ingredients on hand (which I almost always do). It’s also the perfect dip to snack on just about any time of day.

A few not so secret, secrets…

…the tahini is a must. it might sound odd with the avocado, but it’s actually the best thing ever.

…the cumin is my secret weapon in all avocado based dips. it’s subtle, but leaves everyone going back for more…and more.

…the combo of lime and lemon is the perfect citrus balance. the best of both worlds.

…while you could serve this with anything, potato chips really are the best route to go.

The thing I loved most about the guacamole in Mexico was that Gloria really let the salt play up the flavor of the avocado. That got me thinking that a salty, crunchy potato chip would be the perfect chip for this recipe. I truly could not think of a better dipping vessel than these Kettle Sea Salt chips.

Creamy avocado dip + light, crunchy, and salty potato chips? Yup…the best.

    Made this before making your vegan spaghetti squash “Alfredo” and it was delish! Great dip for an appetizer. I doubled the garlic but we like things garlicky. 🙂 Keep the dairy free recipes coming!!!!

    I am happy with your article. I hope you always expand your website more advanced again. I will always support you and your website. I hope your website will be more advanced in the future. thank you

  3. Ok I need some help, I saw this recipe yesterday and was in love! Hummus and guacamole…my 2 favorite things in the world! I just made it and tastes like chalk. 🙁 I’m not a fan of tahini so wondering if it’s just that….I must have done something wrong…

    1. HI! Taste like chalk? OH NO! My guess is that you really don’t like tahini because that can sometimes be chalky. I’d omit the tahini and see if you like this better. sorry for the trouble! Please let me know if you have other questions. Happy Holiday’s ? 🙂

    Excellent and simple to make dip. I served it with chips and pepper strips and everyone liked it. Thanks for a good recipe!

  5. Tieghan! Made it. Loved it! Doubled the recipe and it will still be gone in 3 days. Thanks again for another simple delicious go-to for our bag-o-kitchen-tricks!! xoxo

  6. Has anyone tried to store this, I would, of course, love to bring it camping!! Add some lemon or lime juice maybe?

    1. Hi Erin! I think this would be great for camping. There is plenty of citrus in the dip that it keeps the avocado from browning too much. Let me know if you have any other questions. Hope you love the dip! 🙂

    2. We made it yesterday and took it on a picnic today. It was a smidge brown on top but still tasted great (and I’m super finnicky about brown avocado.) Enjoy camping!

  7. Kettle Brand chips are our favorite Tieghan. And this 10 minute dip will soon be happening here!

  8. We’ve been buying their chips this summer non stop, they’re my go to for our days at the lake. Now I just need this dip to go with!

    1. Wow everything about that just sounded like an amazing summer! I hope you love this dip, Gina! Thank you!

  9. I swoooon over this dip! and those chips! the perfect combo of salty, herbs, creamy, and all!

  10. Avocado, herbs, and tahini sound like the most magical combo ever!!! I’m not a potato chip person… but this dip with veggies??? I’m down with that!! 🙂

  11. I LOVE Kettle chips! I hadn’t had a potato chip in almost 20 years, recently bought a couple of single-serve bags of Kettle Brand at Whole Foods on impulse, and immediately regretted going so long without. The dip looks fantastic, too, and thick enough that only a thick chip could stand up to it. 😉

    1. Wow! I don’t think I could go 20 years without a potato chip haha! I hope you love this dip Christine, enjoy!!

  12. Hi Tieghan! I love the look of this fabulously creamy dip. I have been a follower of your blog since 2012 and have never commented before. Just wanted to let you know that I find your writing style so comforting, like we are friends catching up! Really enjoy your creativity and your pictures! I am in a blogging course right now to work up the courage to begin my own blog (I just moved to rural Oregon for my husband’s work and think it’s finally time!), and part of the assignment was to go out into the wild web and comment on a blog. I chose yours because it is one that I have enjoyed for so long! So thank you!

    1. Awh thank you for choosing mine, this is so sweet Tricia! I really do love writing and talking to all of you guys and it makes me so happy when you comment! I hope your blog turns out amazing! Comment the link when it is up so I can check it out! ? Have a great weekend!

  13. I would totally have a hard time not eating the entire bowl by myself! Looks delish!

  14. I definitely want to make this recipe as the temperatures rise, again. I like dips, but I love chips. : )

  15. This sounds so interesting! I will be making this one as soon as I get some fresh herbs from my garden. 🙂
