Editor's Note: Versatile as can be and super easy to make, this recipe for Avocado Crema is one every cook should have up their sleeves. You'll use only four ingredients to whip up this delicious dish, which can double as a sauce or as a dip to serve snacks for an impromptu get-together with friends. This recipe also includes a few ideas for mix-ins, so go ahead and get creative to make a dip that's truly to your personal preference! All you need is a food processor to get started on this super easy avocado recipe for dips or sauces

You could serve this chunky, as more of a  guacamole, or thin it out to make it more of a  creamy sauce topping. You could also add diced tomatoes, red onions, or hot peppers once it's been blended.
