Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 avocado, pitted and peeled
  • juice from 1/2 lime
  • 1/4 teaspoon chipotle chile powder
  • salt and pepper

  • desired toppings – shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, shredded Monterey Jack cheese, Old El Paso pickled jalapeño slices

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325ºF.
  2. Combine the yogurt, avocado, lime and chipotle chile powder in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate until needed.
