Celebrating Cinco de Mayo With El Monterey Taquitos & DIY Avocado Cool Ranch Dip
El Monterey is one of my favorite brands of food and they provide the best snacks for our Cinco De Mayo celebration! They have easy and convenient snacks, which are a great option for a family friendly Cinco De Mayo gathering. No one wants to be stuck in the kitchen all day while everyone enjoys the festivities! Simply put some of the popular items, such as the El Monterey taquitos, in the over for 10 minutes or so and they are ready to enjoy. The only thing you need is to come up with some fun dipping options. I have a really simple and delicious one to share with you today, not to mention incredibly healthy! Your kids will never know they are dipping their tequitos in a dip that is packed full of healthy ingredients and vitamins. This is defiantly one of my #momwins
Here is everything you need to create the delicious Cool Avocado Ranch Dipping sauce:
- 2 Avocados
- 3/4 C of Greek Yogurt (or sour cream)
- 1/2 tsp Garlic
- 1 tsp Onion Powder
- Dash of Salt & Pepper
- 2 Tbsp Water
Mix all ingredient in food processor until sauce consistency is to your liking. You may have to add a few tbsp of water if you don’t like your sauces as thick. This is really a personal preference! I like it a bit thicker because it is less messy with little kids, haha! After your dip is done, place it in the fridge for an hour or so until it is cold. Or if you prefer a warm dipping sauce then this is ready to serve and enjoy with you El Monterey taquitos!
We all know how much kids love to dip their food in sauces, I am always joking that my son eats more ketchup than fries when he is eating them. Not all sauces we purchase premade are healthy or something we want our children consuming a lot of. This avocado cool ranch dip is made with all fresh ingredients that are both healthy and contain important vitamins that your children need in their diet. Creating healthy dipping sauces is one way I always sneak in veggies that my children may not have necessarily eaten. Again… #momwins !!!!
