Everybody grab some chips! When I dip, you dip, we dip! Sunday, March 23 is National Chip and Dip Day and there are plenty of delicious options from International Drive to Winter Park to celebrate.
For those craving something creamy, but also healthy, stop in Taverna Opa over on I-Drive for some fresh, traditional hummus (only $5!). Or try making your own! Taverna Opa has kindly shared their recipe for fans to make at home: 1 cup chickpeas, 1/4 cup olive oil, garlic to taste, salt and pepper to taste. Combine all ingredients in mortar and ground to desired consistency. Visit opaorlando.com for directions, menus, and info.
There is no shortage of avocados at Cocina 214 and Rocco's Tacos, two restaurants with phenomenal guacamole. Cocina 214's signature guacamole trio ($11) is made fresh by hand and features surprising twists on the creamy dip: blue cheese, mango pineapple, and spicy habanero. For details, visit cocina214.com.
Spice up the night at Gringos Locos with their housemade salsa. The restaurant is open until 3am and serves their secret recipe salsa with fresh tortilla chips for only $1.99. Get more info at gringoslocos.net.
