Excellent! I leave out the avocado just because I don't like avocado...otherwise this recipe is quick and easy to make and its delicious! I have served it at a couple of different gatherings and always get compliments.
Love this recipe! And everyone who tries it loves it, too. And it's pretty healthy I think. Maybe not the chips though.
