Avocado Tomato Spread

Avocado Tomato Spread / Busy Mom

We eat sandwiches a lot at my home. Wonder Woman takes them to school when she doesn’t like what they’re serving in the cafeteria, and Flash takes them to work often to save on our food budget. Unfortunately, we all get pretty sick of the same thing all of the time. We try to find variations, whether it’s switching from normal bread to bagels or tortillas, a different kind of cheese or deli meat, or a new sauce. Even the toppings varying from day-to-day makes a world of difference!

In my search for something new this week, I happen to have made a delicious dip for crackers. My hubbies thought: try it in a sandwich. You know what, it was genius! It just really added to the flavor, and made it a whole new experience for our taste-buds. Guess what’s going in my lunch bag tomorrow?

Here’s the directions for the dip, just remember it can be used as a sandwich spread as well!

¼ cup Mayo or Miracle Whip
1 tsp. Olive oil
1 Avocado, chopped
12 Cherry tomatoes, cut into fourths
1 tsp. Paprika
1 tsp. Chili powder (less if you want it more mild)
1 tbsp. Lime juice

Combine everything in a bowl. Mash as desired. Enjoy!

Notes: With the avocado, it’s best to still be firm if you’re doing a dip, so it can be in chunks. For a sandwich spread, though, let it soften so it can be mashed and spread more easily.
