Nacho Chips and guacamole are one of my favourite vegan snack staples. Easy & delicious. Vegan Nacho Night was next level with this cheezy dip and mango guacamole. The chipotle sweet potato dip is smokey, a bit sweet & dare I say healthy. I had leftovers and was just spooning it on crostini and topping it with guacamole. Amazing. I thinned the dip out with a bit of water so I could drizzle it for the photograph, and I ate it this way but next time I'll be more inclined to leave it on the thicker side for dipping.... served piping hot, along side a bowl of guacamole. And I'll invite friends. Because I ate all of the nachos. Like literally All. Of. Them. If that's not an endorsement I dunno what is. Along side a cold pint of your fav brew. Epic
* Really a good guacamole can handle a decent amount of lime and salt. I couldn't believe I was putting that much salt in but they needed it. It's a delicate balance. Not enough and it's bland, too much and well, it's s.a.l.t.y.
** Make this straight up avocado guacamole simply by subbing the mango for another avocado.
Chipotle Sweet Potato Queso
*** This is going to determine how smoky/spicy your Queso is. I ended up using 3 tbsp. The flavour will deepen and get spicier after it sits a day, and of course once it's heated in a pan it will release more heat. It's never a bad thing to start with less, then add more when you are heating it the next day, but 3 tbsp. for me was perfect.
I have been loving guacamole piled high on sourdough that has been drizzled with olive oil and toasted in the oven, then topped with lots of the queso. I honestly love it even when it's not piping hot, as long as it's not fridge cold. So good. Perfect vegan appetizer or lunch.
