Can other foodies relate to this? ‘This’ happens to me so often! I am hungry and go foraging in the kitchen. I see so many things I like, that I cannot make up my mind what I should eat first. This time I saw mangoes, avocado, pineapple, some left over chipotle pepper in adobo sauce and some cheese, breads and crackers I like. That is how this Spread/dip began in my head.

The aroma of the cumin seed sizzling in ghee whets my appetite.

So I began with that and then added the other ingredients. The fresh lime juice lifts the flavors of the mango, avocado and chipotle to a whole new level! Yum!

Talk about versatile! This Mango Avocado Chipotle Spread tasted awesome on toasted bread with Swiss cheese and on crackers. I also liked it as a dip with the pineapple wedges and wish I had some grilled fish to have this with. Well…next time!
