Simply Snacking: Neal Brother's Tortilla Chips

Neal Brothers Extremely Tasty Tortillas

Before a BBQ, it’s great to have something on hand to satisfy hungry guests before the food’s ready. A quick and easy dish, which can easily be prepared ahead of time, is an avocado and corn bean dip. There’s no real recipe, I just throw a bunch of things together in a bowl and mix!
  • 1 can of black beans, rinsed thoroughly and drained
  • 1 can of corn kernels, drained
  • 1 large or 2 small avocados, diced
  • Splash of lemon or lime juice
  • Salt to taste
  • Optional: diced bell peppers or jalepenos

After experimenting with various supermarket tortilla chips, my favourite to use with the dip is Neal Brother’s Extremely Tasty Tortilla Chips – particularly, the organic blue with flax version.

It’s not oily or too salty, so you can taste the dip. The chip is thin enough to have a brittle crunch, but can still scoop up the ingredients. Plus, the flax seeds mixed into it adds a great sesame element.

Brothers, Peter and Chris, started Neal Brothers Foods in 1988 making croutons out of their parents’ kitchen in Aurora, Ontario. They have come a long way since then expanding into various snacking products and sauces, which are distributed in major grocery chains (I purchase them at Loblaws or Whole Foods).

So, stock some beans, corn and chips in your pantry. With the addition of a semi-ripe avocado, you’ll be amazed with the delicious snack you can create.
