Homemade GUACAMOLE, SALSA, & HUMMUS

 

Chip Party

A quick and easy last minute idea for guests or any celebration! Who doesn’t love a nice big bowl of chips? No matter who your guests are, there is sure to be something for everyone with these three homemade chip dips. I paired these all organic corn chips with a spicy salsa, a refreshing guacamole, and a flavourful hummus. I am a big fan of all of these toppings and I knew I had to invent my own simple recipes for each one. All that is required for these recipes, is a few simple ingredients. Each takes about 5 minutes to make leaving you with more time to enjoy the party! 

**Each recipe makes about 1 cup.
