Quick Cotija Cheese and Avocado Dip for Tortilla Chips (Gluten-Free)

I'm a sucker for traditional guacamole. But, believe it or not, I know a number of people who don't like onions, and a few who don't like tomatoes, so making traditional guacamole is out of the question for them.

This simple and quick recipe makes a great dip to serve with tortilla chips, and has won over even my pickiest friends.

Ingredients:

  • 1-1½ ounces of Cotija cheese
  • 1 or 2 ripe Avocados
  • 1 lemon or lime wedge
  • 1 or 2 sprigs of cilantro, optional
  • 6-8 ounces of good tortilla chips

Directions:
Slice and dice avocados and place into a bowl.

Squeeze lemon or lime juice over avocados. This will help to keep them from turning brown in the unlikely event that the bowl does not get emptied quickly.

Crumble cotija cheese and gently fold together with the avocados.

Garnish with cilantro sprigs. If you like cilantro, then consider chopping some up and placing it in a bowl next to the avocado/cotija mixture. Add more or less avocado or cheese to suit your taste.

Serve alongside a bowl of chips and your favorite salsa.

Very informative web site. We have a meeting here every month and value the information we get to pass on to new members.
We still have many doctors that do not believe or know that Gluten Intolerance and celiac disease is real and causes many health problems.

Feel free to discuss ANYTHING here. Nothing is tmi! We have heard it all. And you can be as dramatic as you like, we will still be here for you. SSRI's are a bear to come off of. I got off one and for MONTHS I had the zaps in my brain. I must say I did not do it slowly or carefully and put ...

If you do have celiac disease, antibodies can continue to rise and attack for days, week or months after a gluten exposure. I hope you feel better soon.

Thanks for the thoughtful replies, everybody! I want to highlight that it's just been almost 4 weeks since I've eliminated gluten (and I've been very strict about it) - prior, I could eat gluten with no issues that like this. A sandwich would rob me of energy, but not in a way I could associate ...

Would like to add to this- while eating gluten I would get a random hive here or there. Since giving up gluten a few days ago, I've had a hive pop up yesterday and today. I'm at such a loss as to why I'm feeling worse. Is this some sort of detox? Is this something experienced by others?
