Chalk it up to cabin fever ...

Outside temp: -34C
Wind chill: - 45C
Inside: four people in a tiny little house and one very hungry dad ...

I found the tortilla chips, but couldn't find any dip ... because of a tomato allergy, salsa was out and the usual container of spinach dip was empty ... what was I to do??

I won't even begin to explain the circuitous route that took me there, but some how the notion of dipping the tortilla chips in the 2kg jar of crunchy peanut butter seemed viable ...

The outcome: Not a bad snack option ... very good on a very cold day !!

Oh, and for the record - Nutella and Tortilla chips are not quite as good ... but nutella AND peanut butter and tortilla is vaguely reminiscent of peanut butter cups ...

I'll keep you updated on any further culinary creations that may result from the remainder of this winter ... I'm sure you're thrilled !!

Now was this a breakfast snack (from the time of your (posting) or details of a past evening snack? I'm hoping it's the latter :)

Ranch salad dressing also works with tortilla chips, or a mixture of sour cream, mayo and assorted spices (dill, garlic, onion etc). There's also good ole' melted cheez whiz for dipping or topping.. Happy snacking!

Indigo,tried it tonight and loved it! Mind you, just about anything with curry is bound to be good.
