This recipe is adapted from Nigella Express, by British food writer Nigella Lawson. We found the combination of two rich ingredients--avocado and blue cheese--to be a marriage made in heaven.


1 cup crumbled Roquefort or St Agur blue cheese
1/4 cup sour cream
2 ripe avocados
1/4 cup sliced pickled jalapeño peppers
2 green onions, finely sliced
1/2 teaspoon fresh lime juice
Blue corn tortilla chips, optional


  1. Crumble or mash the cheese. Stir in sour cream. Add avocados. Mash with a fork.
  2. Roughly chop jalapeños. Add to avocado mixture. Stir in green onions and lime juice.
  3. Arrange in the center of a plate or dish and surround with tortilla chips.
