Cajun Party Dip Faves

With two of my favorite parties coming up in the same week, I've been busy making dips for either my own parties or other parties that I'm going to. Here are a few more of my favorite dips that are Cajun "must haves" for your Super Bowl or Mardi Gras parties. Cest bon, cher! Bon Appetit!

Spicy Creole Guacamole

3 ripe avocados, peeled and pitted
1 small (8 ounce) can, Rotel tomatoes with green chilies, drained
1 small onion, minced
1 tbs. chopped cilantro
1 tbs. fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp. sea salt

Mash avocados in a medium bowl. Stir in tomatoes, onions, lemon juice, salt, and mix well. Cover and chill until ready to serve.

Creamy Crawfish Dip

1/2 lb. peeled crawfish tails
1 tsp. minced garlic
1/2 cup chopped pickled jalapenos
1 small red bell pepper, chopped
1/2 cup green onions, sliced thin
1 cup Pepper Jack cheese, grated
2 ounces Parmesan cheese, grated
2 tbs.'s white wine
1 tsp. Tabasco sauce
1/2 tsp. salt
8 oz.'s cream cheese, softened

Combine all ingredients except the Parmesan cheese in  large bowl. Mix gently and spoon into a medium sized, buttered casserole dish. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese evenly over top and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Let sit for 5 minutes before serving. Fab with mini croissants!
