Celebrate Cinco De Mayo with a trio of fun dips. Great with taquitos and tamales!

I really, really like Mexican food. Maybe it is from growing up in West Texas or maybe it’s just because it’s really dang good. As a kid, we ate Mexican food several times a week. It was just like how other people might have beef stronganoff every week. It was our norm.

One of the things my mom often made for us were taquitos. She’d make a whole mess of them and some queso and guacamole (and if you call it just “guac” you and I are going to have a bit of a problem :) We’d grab our taquitos and dips and get after it and we loved it.

Flash forward to today and I’m Celiac (cannot have gluten) and I still love Mexican food. As such I LOVE Delimex. It’s gluten free friendly and it’s tasy and fast. If you ask me that is the perfect meal!

Since I like taquitos and make them often and sometimes grab some tamales too (they’re in the frozen snack section of WalMart) it seemed a good time to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with three of my favorite taquito dipping sauces including salsa ranch, queso blanco and guacamole!

Salsa Ranch

Here in Oklahoma we dip everything in Ranch dressing. Since it doesn’t pair perfectly with Mexican food, I have my own salsa ranch dip that we Okies just love! It’s also great for taco salads!

  • 1/2 packet dry Ranch dressing mix
  • 8 ounces of sour cream
  • 1/4- 1/2 cup salsa

Instructions

  1. Mix together your dressing mix and sour cream until smooth. Give it a quick taste. The ranch should be very, very strong. If it isn’t go ahead and add a bit more mix and stir until it is.
  2. Add in your salsa (store-bought works just as well and is easier than homemade) and stir in. The dip seems way too thick at first but the salsa thins it out to the perfect consistency!

To easily remove the seeds from avocados take a sharp knife and start to cut in. Flick your wrist upward and the seed will come with it. Or sometimes fly across the room.

To easily remove the tasty bit from the avocado, use a spoon scraping the inside cleanly out.

 

Guacamole

Guacamole has been the most eaten dip of my life and as such I’ve made a recipe that beats all others in my not so humble opinion!

  • 2 soft avocados
  • garlic salt
  • lemon juice
  • chopped onion
  • chopped cilantro
  • chopped tomato (optional)

Instructions

  1. Cut and remove the avocado and place into a bowl. Mash with a fork until desired consistency is reached. You can go chunky or you can go creamy smooth depending on your tastes. Add garlic salt and lemon TO TASTE.
  2. Mix in your chopped onion, cilantro and tomatoes if desired.

At this point I’ve got my taquitos in the oven and tamales in the microwave!

 

Queso Blanco

This cheesy dip is much milder than traditional quesos.

  • 4 ounces of white American cheese OR the boxed equivalent
  • 2 ounces of chopped green chilies
  • a dash of milk
  • 1/4 cup of chicken broth

    My husband is from West Texas, too. He’s the one who told me that guacamole tastes best when made with lemon juice! Can’t wait to try your recipe with a few delicious Delimex taquitos! #client

      It also slows down the avocado going from green to brown to black, so when you have some out for a big party it won’t be unsightly before the last guest is gone. That’s assuming it can actually stick around that long! :)
