How to Make Ranch Guacamole Dip

I first had Guacamole Dip at my friend’s house. She is a vegan, which means she is always carrying around great recipes. For some reason, it had never occurred to me to make guacamole on my own. Okay, I have taken avocado toast and sometimes have avocado in my salad but never guacamole. I remember that first bite, it was a revelation. The consistency was smooth, the taste was vibrant, and the balance of sour and hot was just right. I told her that she had to prepare it every time I visited until I got tired of it. But guess what? It never got to the point where I could get bored of guacamole. What person would not want to take a spoon and taste some smooth and creamy green paste?

Guacamole itself is pretty perfect, right? But then I discovered something even better: Ranch Guacamole Dip. I found the recipe on 12 Tomatoes and knew I had to give this a shot. I went to my friend’s house and pleaded with her to cook it for me but she said, ‘It seems very simple and straightforward, you should try making it yourself’. And so, I did.

Well, here is a little sneak peek of the recipe, but to get the full instructions, you should definitely follow 12 Tomatoes. They are really good at what they do. According to them, here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 ripe avocados, cut in half, removed from the pit, and skin removed
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3 teaspoons dried dill weed
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 3 scallions, chopped
  • 1 small tomato, diced

In fact, the whole process is quite simple. Then all these ingredients are combined until you get a smooth and tasty dip. Serve it with chips—tortilla chips, pita pieces, or toasted baguette. But, it is important to admit that tortilla chips are the best for guacamole (For me, at least).

Well, with my ingredients in hand, I proceeded to make this dip. The only difficult bit was having to wait for the avocados to ripe. You know the problem; either they are very tough or very soft. But I got lucky, and they were just perfect. I crushed the avocados, mixed in the buttermilk and the herbs and veggies. As I was mixing, the kitchen was gradually filled with this wonderful smell. It was like a garden party in my bowl (I swear!).

The first taste test was divine. The buttermilk gave the guacamole a tangy and creamy flavor that I hadn’t experienced before. This added a nice and fresh taste to the dish that was quite enjoyable. I just couldn’t help myself and keep on dipping my tortilla chips into the bowl. The taste of each bite was a perfect balance of creaminess, acidity, and spiciness.

It was just the right snack for a leisurely afternoon. I am sure that I will not be satisfied until I get my friend to make this amazing dip often, because I’m lazy and she’s great at cooking.
