There are so many different dips you eat with this tortilla dish, for example, a cheese dip made with cream cheese, crème fraiche, paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper – which is my all time favourite. Or you can try an avocado or salsa dip.

This is so easy to make and a real time saver on a busy day. Of course you can add more cheese or chicken to your liking. This Cheesy Chicken Tortilla Chip recipe can easily be adapted to your tastes.

About everyvariety

I find that being aware of looking for opportunities to enjoy life through as many senses as possible creates strong impressions of pleasure that enhance life's experiences. As with any other creation, there are many aspects to making an enjoyable experience. There should be memorable stimulation caused by texture, smell, color, taste, and visual presentation. This blog follows my journey as I learn to create, through following other's recipes, adapting recipes and creating my own. My love for all cooking, but mostly baking, comes from the joy I feel when sharing what I make with others and the satisfaction of a job well done. I am not naturally gifted when it comes to cooking but I find the experience meditative and creative, thus mentally relaxing. Please join me in my quest for making eating a beautiful experience.
