Smoky Spicy Avocado Dressing

The following recipe is for a dressing with avocado as the main ingredient. It is creamy and rich, with some nice citrus notes and a yummy smoky spice from chipotle powder. If you have access to avocados, I would highly recommend giving this dressing a try.

1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped

1/2 teaspoon chipotle powder

2 teaspoon shallot, diced

Table salt and ground black pepper

In a small bowl mash avocado. Mix in sour cream, mayonnaise, lime juice, cilantro leaves, shallots and chipotle until smooth and creamy, scraping down sides of bowl once or twice. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Chill until flavors meld, about 1 hour. (Can be covered and refrigerated for up to 2 days.)
