Kevin and I were a bit skeptical about the combination of yogurt and avocado, but with 5 fresh avocados in the house, we thought, "Why not?!" Boy are we glad we put on our grown-up-pants and tried Maria's recipe! This dip is outstanding!! We love traditional guacamole, but this puts a whole new spin on avocado dip. The plain, tangy yogurt is the perfect accompaniment to the jalapeno-spiced avocado. You're going to LOVE this.
