A frequent centrepiece at parties and weekend movie nights, the right dip is quite important! Cheesy, crunchy, spicy or tangy, it’s really up to you. The only thing you need is the right chip, a strong food processor, and an appetite for yummy treats. Here are 5 fuss-free party chip dips that you can whip up in no time!
“Hold up,” you say, “isn’t this just Guacamole?” Well, close enough! This dip is a smoother, tangier version of the classic dip, and its refreshing flavour cuts through the saltiness of your chip. With only four main ingredients, a quick blitz in your food processor, this dip is easy breezy lime squeezy. Ingredients:
2 large avocados, halved and pitted ½ cup lightly packed fresh cilantro (some stems are okay) ⅓ cup lime juice (from about 2 ½ limes) 1 small jalapeño, seeds and ribs removed, roughly chopped 2 tablespoons water, more as needed to thin ½ teaspoon fine sea salt Method:
- Using a spoon, scoop the flesh of the avocados into a food processor or blender. Add the cilantro, lime juice, jalapeño, water, and salt.
- Process, stopping to scrape down the sides as necessary, until the sauce is smooth and creamy. (If the mixture refuses to blend, add additional water in 1-tablespoon increments, as necessary.)
- If you would like a thinner, more drizzly sauce, add water in 1-tablespoon increments until it reaches your desired consistency. Taste, and add more salt if it’s not quite flavorful enough.
- Transfer the avocado sauce to a small serving bowl. This sauce keeps well in the refrigerator, covered, for about 4 days.
