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.

1. My thyroid was tested and is in the normal range. 2. I'm not taking any medication so nothing to interfere with test results. 3. My endoscopy showed multiple ulcers and that's what the GI chalked up to my very rare ibuprofen use. I use ibuprofen maybe once a month if that. ...

The sluggishness, hair loss, and weight gain made me think of hypothyroidism, but then the diarrhea throws me - unless the two things are unrelated. Coincidental but unrelated. I looked up positive lactoferrin test on labsonline: Lactoferrin is a stool (fecal) test that is used to detect in...
