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.
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!
