Roquamole

For those in the US, Superbowl is coming up and we are all looking for some good finger food and some new dips.  I have a perfect new dip for you.

This recipe is awesome and really simple to make, it came from Nigella Lawson.  Definitely a great dip instead of just plane guacamole. This recipe bring guacamole and Rogufort, France’s premier blue cheese, together, and it is a union that really works.  You are welcome to use any blue cheese you want, it is really up to you.  The saltiness, the smoothness of avocado, and the hotness of jalapeños is just a great combination for a dip.

What are your plans for the superbowl?

Roquamole

Yields: serves 3-4 | Prep: 10 minutes

1 cup crumbled Roquefort or Saint Agur blue cheese
2 tbsp finely sliced green onions
¼ tsp paprika
¼ cup sour cream
2 ripe avocados
¼ cup sliced pickled green jalapeños from a jar

Crumble or mash the blue cheese with the sour cream in a bowl. Mash in the avocados. If they are ripe, a fork should be all you need. Roughly chop the sliced jalapeños and stir them into the mixture along with the finely sliced green onions.

Arrange in the center of a plate or dish, dust with paprika, and surround with tortilla chips or crackers.

Great Party Food:
Guacamole
Chicken Wings
Quiche Tartlettes
Vietnamese Spring Rolls

    When I saw Nigella make this dip, I thought WOW I have to try that. It sounds just fabulous. I’m having a chili party this Saturday night and it would be perfect to serve for appetizers. Thanks for reminding me about it.

    Okay, I love blue cheese and guacamole, but would never have thought to put them together. This sounds so good.

    Yumm!! I love any and all blue cheeses. I don’t even really care about the superbowl but I will watch if it gives me an excuse to make this dip! And my husband has a total crush on Nigella so if I tell him its from her, he’ll be in too! :)
