  • 1/3 Cup chunky hot salsa, drained
  • 2 Teaspoons Tabasco chipotle sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon chopped onion

  • 2 Teaspoons sour cream
  • 2 Teaspoons chopped pickled jalapeños, drained
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Coarsely crushed tortilla chips, for garnish

Directions

Combine the thoroughly mashed yolks with the salsa, Tabasco, onion, garlic powder, sour cream, and jalapeños. Taste, then season with salt and pepper.

Salsa Shopping Tip

How hot is that chile pepper? Fresh peppers get hotter as they age; they will achieve a more reddish hue and sometimes develop streaks in the skin.

Salsa Cooking Tip

There are 60 varieties of chile peppers, many of which are used in Mexican cooking. Handle them with care. When handling the spicier kinds, gloves are recommended. Always wash your hands with soap and warm water before touching your eyes.
