Cinco de Mayo is just a few days away, and I’m sure many of you are planning to celebrate with family and friends this weekend. I knew I wanted to create something quick and fun to bring to the fiesta that I’m attending, so I put my creativity to work in the DD Test Kitchen. I created a recipe that puts a twist on your typical “chips and dip” and features classic Mexican flavors. My Creamy Avocado Yogurt Dip requires just a few simple ingredients, including DDelicious Everything Bagels from Dunkin’ Donuts. This recipe is sure to be a crowd pleaser at home or for guests at the party. Enjoy!
