Nigella Lawson's "Roquamole"

I was going to make this recipe for the first time with dinner tonight, but we decided to have it as an early afternoon snack insead. I got it from Nigella Lawson's show, "Nigella Express," on the Food Network. Here is the link:

~1 cup blue cheese (Nigella's calls for Roquefort or St.Agur)

~1/4 cup sour cream

~2 ripe avocados

~1/4 cup pickled jalapenos, from the jar

~2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onions

~1/4 teaspoon paprika

~1 bag of blue corn tortilla chips

~4-5 Tablespoons of lime juice (to taste)


~Cut avocados in half and remove pits. Spoon out the avocado into the bowl that will hold your dip. Use a fork to break into pieces and stir, just like you would for regular guacamole. If your avocados are ripe, this should be fairly easy.

~Roughly chop the jalapenos and blue cheese. Add to the avocados along with the sour cream and green onions.

~Cut lime in half, and squeeze into the bowl (as much as you'd like). Mix with your fork.

~Top with a dusting of the paprika and serve with blue corn tortilla chips in the same bowl.

Our Review:

We served this on top of my buffalo chicken chili with the chips, and LOVED it. Andy and I love avocados, so this made them even better! This would be a great dip for company as well.

Nigella did a great job with this dip. Thanks for the recipe!
