I'm on a roll today..Thing to dip tortilla chips in...Spinach dip and guacamole

Bag of tortilla chips or make you own chips:

Corn tortillas
Spray oil

Preheat oven to 400
Spray tortillas with oil (olive oil in a misto, or any non-stick spray oil will do)
Sprinkle with salt.

Put in oven directly on rack. Bake about 5 minutes, but check them often. When the edges start to brown, check. If the middle it still soft, turn oven off and let sit a minute or two longer, but check often. They go from floppy to crispy pretty quickly.

Easiest veganized recipe I've come up with...

Makes one big self serving (or more as app)

1 TBS Olive oil
1-2 cloves garlic
1/2 cup frozen thawed or canned spinach with water squeezed out (or freah sauted)
2 TBS nooch (nutritional yeast)
1 TBS veganaise (or other vegan mayo)
a little broth or water

Saute garlic in olive oil. Add spinach and nooch. Add a little broth or water if it looks too thick. When heated add veganaise and stir. Serve in a bowl with tortilla chips. Or Triscuits. Triscuits are vegan.


1 avacado
1 plum tomato
1 lime
1 TBS sofrito (or clove garlic, onion, peppers, a little cilantro)

Ah, sofrito magic...

Cut and pit avacado. Scoop out and mash up. Cut tomato in small dice. Add juice of 1 lime, add sofrito. Mix together and let sit for a few minutes (while you're baking your tortillas perhaps....)

You could add some cumin or some chipotle seasoning, but honestly, the softiro is enough saison...try it first with the salted chips then add salt if it really needs it.
