Creamy Avocado Dip

This dip is so yummy that I literally almost ate it all before I could take a picture for you guys! It's bright and fresh and creamy with a hint of spice! It goes great with tortilla chips, pita chips, or crackers, and it's sure to please any crowd!

2 fresh avocados (the fresh part is important!)
1 8 oz block of cream cheese
1-2 tbsp of Cajun seasoning

Make sure your cream cheese is softened. If it isn't, it will be very difficult to blend. Beat cream cheese with a mixer for about 30 seconds or until it is creamy. Add avocados 1/2 at a time, blending until smooth. Finally, add in Cajun seasoning a little at a time, tasting after it is blended. Continue to add seasoning until dip is spicy enough for your taste. Add a dash of salt and pepper and give it one last blend. Chill for 2-3 hours and serve with your choice of chips or crackers!

Just a tip on picking ripe avocados....you're going to want to go with one that isn't too green. When you squeeze a fresh avocado, it will seem a bit squishy or soft. If it's too hard to squish, it's not ripe yet!
