Getting today's recipe in under the wire. We spent the afternoon at a Witches Tea Party, so much fun with free mini classes, readings, lots of witchy folk, and delicious food and herbal tea blends. There was this dip there that I could not stop heading back for. It was some sort of cheesy-guac combo so I'm on the search for recipes to try until I get the right flavor. The following is the one that looks most interesting so far, especially considering we are lactose intolerant and love our goat cheese! I find this fits in with my Samhuinn collection of recipes because I can see this as a *slime* themed appetizer at a Hallowe'en party, with finger shaped crackers!
Avocado Goat Cheese Dip with Whole-Wheat Pita Chips
1 package whole-wheat pita chips (cut into 6 triangles each)
3 ripe avocados, peeled pitted and cut into chunks
2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon salt, plus more, if needed
3 tablespoons lime juice
4 ounces cream cheese
4 ounces goat cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Spread pita triangles on a sheet tray. Bake in the oven until crisp and slightly toasted. Chips will need to be rotated twice while baking.
In a bowl combine avocados, garlic, cumin and salt. Use an electric hand mixer to mix ingredients together. Add lime juice, cream cheese and goat cheese pulsing until smooth and blended well. Add a bit more salt, if necessary.
2 to 3 cups
