Lake Charles Dip

August 27, 2018Teresa

Lake Charles Dip is an awesome recipe for any party. This amazing dip is made with a sour cream and mayonnaise base. Then it includes Good Seasons Italian Dressing Mix, hot sauce, tomatoes and avocados. The combination is wonderful. I garnished the dip with avocado slices and tomato wedges. Then I served it with both Fritos corn chips and Ritz Crackers. It was incredibly mouthwatering.

Back in April we had some neighbors invite us over for dinner. She made a spectacular meal for us that included, Amish Chicken and Noodles, Fried Green Beans, Baked Pineapple, Favorite Fruit Salad, Cajun style Deviled Eggs, and a fantastic Oreo Cookie Dessert. I’ve made most of those recipes multiple times since then. I asked to look through her cookbook and copied down hundreds of recipes I wanted to try. Lake Charles Dip was one of those recipes. I had texted Linda about another recipe I was making and she mentioned how much she liked this one. So I gave it a whirl.

I served it for our Friday night care group back in early June. It was very well received (except by my husband who won’t eat anything with avocados.) He doesn’t know what he’s missing! This dip had terrific flavor from the seasoning and hot sauce. The texture was also great by having clumps of avocados and tomatoes. Everyone loved it. I ate it for lunch with crackers or chips for a couple days afterwards. It was also good served on avocado slices and tomato wedges.

If you’re looking for a dynamite recipe to serve at your next tailgating party or potluck, Lake Charles Dip is the one for you!It’s also a great addition for Labor Day picnics and get togethers. This cajun recipe from Lake Charles, Louisiana, is totally scrumptious. It’s certainly one you will want to make often. Plus, it’s really easy to throw together. This recipe can be made in under ten minutes, so you can whip it up in a snap. Yes, it’s special. I think it’s calling my name….. 🙂

    Scrolling through Pinterest one day and this recipe popped up saying Lake Charles Dip! I’m like that’s where I’m from so had to check it out! Glad I did…..made it today and brought to work for coworkers to try and everyone loved it!!
    I did add extra Louisiana hot sauce and jalapeño bacon….I like an extra kick!
    Next time I make this I will definitely add some seafood….shrimp, crawfish or crab or all three.
    Thanks for this recipe😋

      Oh, my Asha that sounds so good. Jalapeno bacon?? Oh my! I love all the additions, although it was really good with avocados. 🙂

    I’m worried that it would be too salty with two packs of the seasoning.

      This was not a salty tasting recipe.

    As I was browsing pinterest I saw a name I recognized, Lake Charles. We lived in SE Louisiana for 18 years until God called us to southern CA 5 years ago. We still miss home and I look forward to trying your recipe.

      Hi, Sue. We have some neighbors here in our Texas neighborhood that grew up there. She’s given me hundreds of her down home Cajun recipes and those that have been passed down from that region of the country. Love ’em!

    Please note that the Italian seasoning you have listed is not gluten free

      Hi, Randy, when I looked on the back of the packet it did not include any wheat, barley or rye. Perhaps it had malt??

    Do you have to use the avocados or is it something else you could use in its place? Thank You It looks so good!

      Hi Gayle. Well, we loved it with avocados, but a possible substitute might be artichokes.
