Indian Avocado Spinach Dip

There are few foods I love more than Mexican and Indian foods. I seriously think I could eat either or both of these everyday for the rest of my life without a problem. So this dip is right up my alley, with the combination of the Avocado and the Indian spice.

This dip couldn't be any easier to make. There are only 3 ingredients other than spices, and there's no added fat so you can simply enjoy the freshness of the vegetables. If you're tired of schlepping the same old spinach artichoke dip to parties, give this dip a try for a tasty and interesting twist!

Oh, and this recipe is completely raw for all you raw foodies out there!

WOW! I would never have thought of making a guacamole with spinaches and masala! Living in Mexico I definitely think that this gives a 180ยบ twist to the recipe!

There is not a word in that title that my boyfriend doesn't like. And even though I'm allergic to avocados, I'm gonna give this to him in a move of selfless love. =)

I am seriously intrigued by this! The color is amazing. Great idea, thank you! I wonder how this would be w/kale instead of spinach? maybe too stringy?
