This is an avocado-less recipe that can be served with veggies or low-fat chips. Very spicy so you may want to cut back on the hot pepper sauce or jalapeno peppers.

I have been using recipes from this website for many years and find most of them fantastic. I have never reviewed any recipes before but found I had to with this one. I am on weight watchers and made this for Easter. With the use of the asaparagus it is almost point free. It is great, my family was unable to tell that it was asparagus and loved it. Will definately being making this again. Thanks Cheryl.

Made the recipe because I had so much fresh asparagus out of the garden and I had the rest of ingredients. Wow! Love it! Nice fresh flavor and my picky men liked it! They like avocado guacamole so I figured I was safe calling it a veggie dip cause they will not eat asparagus. I would never have thought to do this with asparagus. Also, the neat thing about this recipe, you can work with what you have on hand and even add sourcream to make it richer if you like. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

GREAT recipe for making something low-fat and very delicious. I do recommend using a lot more lime juice, I use one or two whole fresh squeezed limes. Also, red onion gives it more flavor and kick than green, but that's just personal preference. Thanks for sharing this, love it!
