Ingredients:

1 box savoritz sea salt pita crackers from Aldi (you can choose any type of toast,bread,cracker)

2 medium tomatoes, thinly sliced

Dry cilantro to garnish

Ingredients for the dip:

6-8 jalapeños (remove the seeds if you don’t want it spicy)

1 cup of chopped cilantro

1 pack of ranch dressing mix

1 cup sour cream (can substitute with greek yogurt)

1 cup mayonnaise

Method:

To make the dip, puree jalapeños and cilantro in food processor until it has the consistency of a paste. Add the remaining ingredients and puree until smooth. Refrigerate for an hour prior use. I usually make mine 1 day in advance, I think the consistency improves and allows enough time for all the flavors to meld together.

Setting up is quite easy and quick. Lay the crackers and apply the jalapeño cilantro dip on top of the cracker. Apply the tomato slices and garnish with dry cilantro. Serve right away.
