Pretzel Crusted Ranch Baked Avocados

Do you enjoy trying new things? Variety is the spice of life, they say. Today, I’m excited to share some tasty new products that will bring some variety to our summer. Not sure about you, but I’ve been dying to try baked avocados for a while now. They are definitely one of my favorite foods and I like them even more every year. With the combination of some crunch from crushed pretzels and lots of flavor, it finally happened! Yum! This is a sponsored post about Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® dressings & dips, all opinions are my own.

Yes please! Baked avocados dipped in ranch and a pretzel crust. YUM!

There are so many foods that I love, but I’d say that both avocados and ranch dressing are on my top 10 list.  To find a way to eat them both together is a total win. I had a chance to check out some of the new Hidden Valley Ranch Flavors which include Sweet Chili, Avocado, Roasted Garlic and Cucumber.  Can you say yum? I knew that I needed to try that Sweet Chili as soon as humanly possible. That’s the flavor I chose to make my baked avocados, but the beauty is that you can choose whichever flavor you choose!

The other products we tried included Hidden Valley Greek Yogurt Salad Dressing and Dip MixesThese are basically packets packed with flavor. You add the mix to 3 tablespoons of milk and 1 & 1/3 cup of Greek yogurt to make your own dressing or dip whenever you want some! Pretty impressive! I really love the addition of the yogurt, it makes a really delicious creamy dip or dressing that was actually perfect for this baked avocado treat.
