And…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 🙁
Spicy Tomatillo Chip Dip Recipe:
Add this beautiful green, spicy dip to your snack table! Your cilantro lovers will be smiling! Here’s the Walkthrough for Spicy tomatillo Chip Dip Recipe. Main thing to remember! Make it the night before to let those flavors blend. Enjoy!
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)!
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.
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!)
