Jalapeno & Lime Guacamole and a Cheesy Baked Salsa Dip!

Let’s Get Delicious with a Jalapeno & Lime Guacamole and a Cheesy Baked Salsa Dip!  2 recipes in one delicious post!

Recently I was given a mission as part of the Chatelaine Tasters and Testers program, and I happily rose to it.  I was challenged to come up with 2 recipes to go with Tostitos®Multigrain Scoops!® tortilla chips and Tostitos Cantina® Extra Thin Tortilla Chips.  I love my job, by the way.  Recipe development with Tostitos chips?  Yes, please!

I kept things simple for these recipes, with easy to find fresh ingredients (in fact I bought everything I needed at Walmart for way less than $100), and both dips take 10 minutes or less to make.  That makes these appetizers perfect for parties and late night snacking!

First up,

 This is another great appetizer or snack.  If you love guacamole, you’ll love this spicy & tangy version.  The fresh lime juice really takes this guacamole up a notch!  Served up with Tostitos Cantina® Extra Thin Tortilla Chips that have been warmed in the oven, and you’ll be fighting your guests for the last bite. ;)

Jalapeno & Lime Guacamole
 
Prep time
Total time
 
Serves: 6 - 8
Ingredients
  • 5 ripe avocados, peeled & pit removed
  • 1 - 4 tsp minced jalapeno pepper (depending on your heat tolerance)
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • juice from 1 fresh lime
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 bag Tostitos Cantina® Extra Thin Tortilla Chips
Instructions
  1. You can make this guacamole in a food processor, or mash it by hand. I prefer the food processor method.
  2. Put the avocado, jalapeno, onions, cilantro and olive oil into your food processor, and combine. Don't puree it, you want the guacamole to be smooth yet chunky.
  3. Stir in the lime juice.
  4. Salt & pepper to taste.
  5. Transfer the guacamole to a serving bowl, then set aside while you warm your chips.
  6. Warm your Tostitos Cantina® Extra Thin Tortilla Chips according to package directions.
  7. Serve the guacamole with the warmed chips and enjoy!
