    I’ve made a version of this for years.
    My secret is mango! The contrast is wonderful. Try red onion for color, lime juice instead of vinegar, and use spinach tortillas for a roll-up.

  2. Yum! I love this kind of dip. It’s such a perfect app for a BBQ, add some salad and the vegetarians and vegans don’t need anything else 🙂 Thanks for linking to my baked tortilla chips 🙂
