Slather salty-candy tortilla chips in creamy lime dip and chocolate sauce for a subsequent-level treat

The best cinema snack is constantly up for debate. Popcorn and nachos are genuinely my favourites. But you can’t have each, due to the fact you’ll be stuffed, and dinner after may be a no-go. So right here’s a compromise: tortilla chips tossed in cinnamon popcorn sugar with a strawberry salsa and a lime-soured cream dip – and, of course, chocolate sauce. Nacho normal tortilla chips.
