Snack :: Avocado Goat Cheese Dip

It's been a busy week! I'm actually quite proud of myself for cooking almost every night (more posts to come!), and being very efficient towards the end of the week by making one snack that would work for two laid-back occasions. On Thursday, Briana came over to watch the second episode of the new season of Project Runway, and Friday a small group of us went to Jenny and Mike's for one last evening of fun before they move.

Since Jenny is the Queen of Dips, I knew I wanted to go in that direction in her honor. Dips can be so boring after awhile, so I dug around online for a really unique one. Thank you,, because I found the dip of my dreams! Each main ingredient is in my Top 10 list of things I can't live without, and needless to say it didn't last more than 20 minutes on Friday night.

In a bowl, combine 3 ripe avocados (peeled, pitted and cut into chunks), 2 cloves minced garlic, 1/2 t. cumin and 1/4 t. salt. Use an electric hand mixer to mix ingredients together. Add 3 T. lime juice, 4 oz. cream cheese and 4 oz goat cheese, pulsing until smooth and blended well. Add a bit more salt if necessary.
