Avocados are creamy and delicious and chipotles are smokey and earthy tasting.
Oh, it’s a wonderful combo!
I’ll admit I don’t use chipotle peppers often and when I do, I wonder why I don’t use them more. The flavor is always so familiar when I order food out and I thought it was about time I made an appetizer my friends and I could enjoy without having to leave the house….that had that great smokey flavor added to it.
I am a huge fan of delicious and filling appetizers. I love when the flavors are unforgettable and you can’t wait to have that item again. This is that kind of appetizer! Irresistible.
I’ve made egg rolls and wontons before if you need more appetizer ideas Avocado Cream Cheese Wontons, Corned Beef and Cabbage Egg Rolls, Texas Egg Rolls, Fried Spinach Ravioli with a Feta and Basil Dip, Balsamic Cheese Dip with Tortellini…. oh my goodness this appetizers list is making my mouth water!
