Another great way to enjoy this dip is to mix it with salsa and use it as a wonderful taco or nacho topping.

#RecipeTips: To easily crush tortilla chips for a crust, place them in a resealable plastic bag and secure it with a rubber band. Then take a heavy skillet (cast iron is best) and press down on the bag until all of the tortillas are crushed to your desired consistency. This will also save you from having to clean up a mess of broken tortillas.

#RecipeTips: If you’ve ever tried to stir hot salsa into sour cream, you know it just doesn’t mix right. The solution? Use a blender or immersion hand blender (my favorite kitchen utensil) and blend it all at once. Better yet – make your own fresh salsa with this recipe.

#RecipeTips: You can use less onion powder if you like, but the original recipe calls for it. This is because there is a very small amount of onion in each can of Nacho Cheese Sauce. If you don’t want red or black specks throughout your dip, just strain it through a fine sieve or cheesecloth before adding to sour cream (I do this often with tomato sauce during the summer).

Homemade Salsa Recipe

2 cloves garlic minced

3 Tbsp. fresh cilantro chopped

#RecipeTips: Don’t like cilantro? You’re in luck because you can leave it out of this recipe. For another flavor twist, add 1/2 cup of fresh diced jalapeno peppers instead.

#RecipeTips: Rate this recipe! This is a good salsa recipe to keep handy during the summer months for quick chips and salsa snacking. I love it because its fresh, simple, and can be made in 10 minutes or less – no cooking needed (the corn tortilla chips are baked @ 350 degrees F.).

#RecipeTips: Try this dip with baked tortilla chips or raw veggies like cucumbers, cauliflower florets and mini sweet peppers – they’re great dippers.
