Avocado Chive Crema

Jump to Recipe

It’s been waaaaay too long since I’ve given you guys a newΒ avocado recipe. And I think it’s about time that we fix that. I mean, last weeks salad didn’t count because the avocado wasn’t the star. I mean it had a supporting role, but we need avocados front and center. Stat.

So today, let’s make some avocado crema. And then let’s go ahead and do it again tomorrow. And maybe the next day too. Because you’re gonna want to start putting it on everything. Well, maybe not dessert, but just about everything else.

But, let’s first talk about Mexican food. Here’s the deal, and you tell me if I’m crazy, I could seriously eat Mexican food every single day for the rest of my life. I don’t need anything else. I literally could have it for breakfast, lunch and dinner and you’ll never hear me complain. When people ask me to go out for a meal, my first suggestion is to always go somewhere with a Mexican food flare. Does that make me weird? Like, is it wrong to want to have quesadillas, burritos and tacos for the rest of my life? Tell me this is normal. Because I’m not sure if I can live any other way πŸ™‚

Especially now that I’ve got some avocado crema sitting in my fridge to be applied on just about everything I consume.

So you should take 4.234 minutes out of your day and make this. It’s going to become a staple when you have a quesadilla or a burrito, or a taco, or some carne asada, or some carnitas, or some spanish rice, or just some kick ass refried beans. Or you can be cool like me, and just eat it straight out of the jar and spoon it onto a chip or two.

Don’t judge me πŸ™‚

  1. Whenever we’re at a loss for what to cook, it’s always, “I know! Tacos!” Why did I not think of this myself? I can’t wait to make it and gobble it up.

  2. Ditto on the Mexican fare. Simple and tasty. This avocado crema is going to make my summer dishes even more delicious!

  3. I make a really similar recipe using yogurt and put it on shrimp tacos. It is seriously SO good. I could eat it straight out of the jar with a spoon!

  4. Just wondering if it browns relatively soon, or if I could make it the night before and bring it to work for lunch or something. Thanks πŸ™‚

    1. you could make it the night before – just put some plastic wrap on top so no air gets in and turns it brown!
