Sweet Onion Cheesy Avocado Dip

Yield: About 5 cups  |  Net Carbs:  1.2,  Protein:  3

low carb atkins recipe Sweet Onion Cheesey Avocado Dip


  • 16 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1½ cups shredded white Cheddar or Monterey jack cheese
  • 1 ripe black avocado, peeled and seeded
  • 1 small sweet onion
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 can (3 to 4 ounces) green chilies, drained, or jalapeños, if you like it hot


Combine all the ingredients in a food processor and process until very smooth.

Scrape into a pretty serving bowl and place the avocado seed in the middle.

Placing the seed in the middle helps keep the dip from turning brown as quickly while it sits out. But if you’re making this a few hours ahead of time, cover it with plastic wrap, making sure the wrap is actually touching the surface of the dip.

Don’t make this more than a few hours before you plan to serve it.

This salsa-gone-wild is a very special low carb recipe created and written by a personal friend. Thanks, Lonnie!

Low Carb Fresh and Wild Avocado Salsa


  • 8 medium avocados (or 6 large)
  • stay-fresh spray: 1 tablespoon each of lemon juice & lime juice, salt
  • 6 diced plum tomatoes
  • ½ cup sliced black olives
  • 1 cup fresh corn off the cob
  • 1 cup diced cucumber
  • 1 bunch green onion
  • ½ cup minced red onion
  • 1 bunch cilantro, 4 garlic cloves
  • pinch of: ground cumin, coriander, celery salt
  • optional: pinch of safflower, dill or jalapenos


Make the stay-fresh spray: Mix lemon juice, lime juice and a pinch of salt with 1 cup water. Pour into a spray bottle. This will keep the ingredients fresh and your avocado will keep its color! It also acts as an all-natural preservative, so storing in the fridge is simple.

In a large bowl, dice or chop all ingredients, and mix until well blended. Spray the mixture lightly with the stay-fresh spray and cover evenly with the spices. Toss all ingredients lightly and set aside. This mixture may be prepared ahead of time and stored overnight in the fridge.

Dice the avocados last for the ultimate freshness. Spray the avocado chunks with the citrus spray and toss. Carefully fold into the other bowl of ingredients. Finish with an optional dash of safflower, add a sprig of dill, or sprinkle of sliced jalapenos.
