Dips, chips and cocktails! There is really no better way to kick off the summer.

With Tyrrells beautifully hand cooked English chips and a bottle of Tequila Blu on hand, all you need is these fiery dip recipes and you’re officially set for the perfect afternoon.


1 large or 2 small avocados
1 TBS sour cream 
1 jalapeño, seeded
1 TBS fresh coriander
Juice of 1 lime or lemon
Salt & pepper 
Fresh chilli to taste

1 Quarter the jalapeño length wise and grill on medium heat until charred all over, then finely chop.
2 Chop coriander and combine all ingredients in a bowl, top with the left over fresh coriander and some fresh chilli.
3 To give the guacamole that extra zing, throw in the jalapeño raw instead and add half a garlic clove finely chopped. Yum!


1 cup natural Greek yoghurt
Juice of half a lime
1/2 cucumber
1 TBS fresh chives
1 garlic clove
Salt & pepper 

1 Finely chop the cucumber, garlic and chives. Combine ingredients, season with salt and pepper and you’re done!

If you plan ahead, make it the night before, cover and pop in the fridge. This allows the flavours to develop leaving you with a tastier dip. 

A classic margarita pairs beautifully with these chips & dips, but your options are endless with Tequila Blu. Take a look at some of their signature cocktails to get your creative juices flowing.
