Calling all broccoli lovers:

The other day I had a full head of broccoli that I needed to use before it started to turn.  And, with Cinco de Mayo on my brain, I figured I’d try to make a nice dip for some blue corn tortilla chips.

My household is certainly obsessed with anything related to avocados (there’s always at least two ripening in a brown bag behind one of my cabinets) most importantly our famed recipe and video for  Guacomole dip  and our celebrated recipe for Baked Stuffed Avocados. But, a nice, cool low(er) fat fresh broccoli dip seemed like the perfect alternative.

As luck would have it, Mom had a Broccomole dip in her archives that was (like most) of her recipes, half faded, half complete.  Similar to her other dips, this broccoli dip uses light cream cheese and or/sour cream.

If you’re looking for a guilt-free dip recipe requiring no culinary skill and minimal prep time, put this on your list.  But remember, even though it looks like guacamole, it tastes all broccoli!
