I enjoyed eating this dip with veggie slices, plantain chips, and mixed into a taco bowl too. There is no dairy in the dip, but the creamy aspect comes from pureed white sweet potato, olive oil and avocado. It’s wonderful served warm, room temperature or cold. This recipe yields a lot too!
Cheers and enjoy!
This flavorful dairy-free creamy Mexican dip whips together in a flash and is perfect for parties, get-togethers, barbecues and more. It even has a hidden dose of veggies that adds to its creaminess!
- 1 medium-large white sweet potato, peeled and cubed
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 large avocado, sliced into quarters
- 1 lime, juiced
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 14 oz container fresh salsa, mild, medium or hot
- Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
- 1/2 cup fresh cilantro
- Pinch of cayenne, optional
Cook sweet potato cubes in a steamer basket over medium heat for about 10 minutes or until tender.
Add the cooked sweet potato to a food processor with the garlic, avocado, lime juice, olive oil, sea salt and black pepper. Blend until smooth, scraping down the sides with a spatula as needed.
Next, add the salsa and cilantro, and pulse several times to incorporate it into the sweet potato mixture. Taste and add pinch of cayenne (or more) if you want it a bit spicier.
