Four Foods- Salty!

Another week of late posting. Bad me! Check out everyone else's timely posts here.

#1. Potato chips. Flavored? Regular, ridged or stacked?
Baked, anyway they come.

#2. Cheese doodles. Yellow or white? Puffed or crunchy?
Pirate Booty, so white and puffy.

#3. Pretzels? Your favorite shape? Favorite flavor?
Honey Wheat Rods

#4. Share a recipe for salsa or dip.

Chipotle Chickpea Dip

1 large clove garlic, peeled
15 ounces (1 1/2 cups) chickpeas, drained and liquid reserved
2 tbsp. lime juice
1/2-1 tbsp. chopped canned chipotle peppers (adjust according to how spicy you like it)
1 tbsp. chopped red onion
1 tbsp. tomato paste
1/4 tsp. chili powder
1/4 tsp. cumin
salt to taste
more red onion for garnish

With the food processor running, drop in the garlic and process until chopped. Add the chickpeas and lime juice and begin processing. If it's too dry, add 1-2 tablespoons of cooking liquid from chickpeas or, if you're using canned, just use water. Add the remaining ingredients and process until smooth. Adjust salt to taste. Serve garnished with chopped red onions.
