About this Dip
Why is this called crack dip? Because it's out right addicting. Once you try this Avocado Crack Dip once, you’re going to want to make it again and again.
Think of this Avocado Crack dip as a cheesy guacamole. For the most part we’re using guacamole ingredients: avocado, tomato, onion, jalapeño. When you add in some salty, creamy feta, red wine vinegar, and a bit of cultured oil, it transforms into … well … crack.
This Avocado Crack dip is a fabulous appetizer for parties or game days. I also like to mix it with plain ol’ lettuce for a minimal effort, maximum flavor salad.
- Avocados - How to choose the perfect avocado? When your avocado is ready to enjoy it should be slightly soft upon squeezing, but not mushy. The little stem piece on the top of the avocado should easily peel off.
- Cherry Tomatoes - Cherry tomatoes or grape tomatoes work best for this recipe as compared to larger ones like heirloom or beefsteak which will have more moisture and make your dip watery.
- Jalapeño - For a fresh kick that pairs well with the creamy feta and creamy avocado. If you're sensitive to heat, be sure to remove the seeds.
- Feta - Some of the “crack” nature of this avocado crack dip comes from salty feta cheese.
- Zero Acre Cultured Oil - A clean, neutral taste and full of heart healthy fats.
- Seasoning - For a little kick use Chile Lime Seasoning. To bring our more of the cheesy flavors, use Everything but the Elote seasoning from Trader Joe’s.

How to Make This Recipe
1. Remove the pits from the avocados and dice into small pieces as well as the tomatoes into quarters and add to a bowl.
2. Dice jalapeño and onions into small pieces (use this vegetable chopper to make your life easier). Finely dice cilantro (tip: use a pizza cutter for the herbs). Add to a bowl with the avocado and tomatoes.
3. Top with the juice of 2 limes, cultured oil, red wine vinegar, salt, and other seasoning. Add feta cheese.
4. Toss lightly to avoid mashing too much of the avocado. Serve with tortilla chips and enjoy!
This dip is best made just before enjoying to avoid browned avocados. If you’d like to make it in advance or for meal prep, you can chop and combine everything except the avocado. This mixture will stay good for up to 5 days in the refrigerator, and then you can add the avocado just before serving.
Note: If you have leftovers, you can use plastic wrap to keep the dip even longer. Place the dip into a tupperware, then press plastic wrap directly on top of it so there are no air bubbles. Cover with the tupperware lid and the avocado will stay green for longer.
This dip is very versatile and although with tortilla chips is my favorite way to enjoy, a few other ideas include:
- As a taco garnish
- Mixed into salad
- On top of a grilled protein like shrimp or chicken
