Expert Tips

  • Spice It Up: If the group you are serving likes spicy food, go ahead and add another chopped chipotle chili and a little extra of the spicy adobo sauce.
  • Crowd Pleaser: Bring this dip the next time you are asked to bring an appetizer. Heat at home until hot and then just keep warm at the party.
  • Special Touch : It's fun to serve a basket of chips of different colours and shapes. Purchase blue, yellow and white tortilla chips, plus small round ones and the larger triangle-shaped variety. Serve them in a colourful holiday basket lined with a napkin.
