Our garden is very productive. Our cucumbers are coming in by the bucket loads. I made crisp cucumber salsa with them recently and we did love it! And cold cucumber soup with yogurt and dill, a very yummy summer soup! Our tomatoes and peppers are going gangbusters too!
 

Spicy Tomatillo Chip Dip RecipeAnd…We grew Tomatillos  this year. We have never grown them before, and may never again. They just are not resonating with Dave. I sort of pushed him into growing three buckets of tomatillos out on the pepper patio by our greenhouse.

He ignored them mostly, so I took care of them. The poor things hated growing in those buckets. They finally eeked out a tomatillo or two amongst the group. Not happy tomatillo plants 🙁

That is my sad tale of our tomatillos. The ones you see in the single picture I have of them are the total harvest of our tomatillo experiment. There were many cruel trials for those plants. Drought and aphids and others….green tomatoes work better for us!
 
On the bright side, our onions, tomatoes and garlic are fabulous! They made a lovely contribution to this recipe!

Because I worked all summer to bring the measly tomatillo crop to harvest; I decided they deserved to be showcased in this Beautiful dip. Tomatillos (and a few of our green tomatoes), limes and Avocados give the dip that gorgeous color! Jalapenos and cilantro really step up the Mexican flavors!

The limes are  beautiful! But they pack a punch. The original recipe called for the juice and zest of one lime. I did that; but in my opinion, that is too much lime taste. Take those lovely skins off (or use them at your own discretion)!Avocado Slices And Spices In A Blender

Avocados provide the creamy base for this dip. Healthy and luscious. I added sour cream for some richness (and to tone down the lime a bit). Omit it if you like, you’ll still have a good, creamy dip.

Add all the ingredients into your blender and pulse until smooth. Serve with tortilla Chips. For the best melding and mellowing of flavors refrigerate overnight in an airtight container before serving.
NOTE: I made this dip for our fourth of July party. It gave me an education on the diversity of our taste buds!  You’ll want to serve spicy tomatillo Chip Dip to lime and cilantro lovers. I was so surprised how divided the party group was. I did a poll on this dip. That’s the only reason I’m sharing this recipe! The lime and cilantro lovers declared it outstanding. The cilantro no sayers, gave it a thumbs down. So be prepared to offer something else on the table for your non cilantro fans. ( I think loving cilantro is a genetic thing. Some really do! Some really don’t!)
