Looking for a peppy dip to take to your next neighborhood get-together? Spice up your parties with this copy cat of my favorite locally made dip!
There’s a company here in Lafayette that makes the BEST dips, hummus, and salsas, and I consistently buy them but sometimes I want a larger amount than comes in their containers (without spending an arm and a leg). After eating it many many times I decided to try my hand at making my own variation! The cheese and peppers blend together seamlessly, and it has just enough spice to please the spicy lovers but not scare away the milder crowd. I will say that mine doesn’t taste EXACTLY like the packaged stuff, but I got zero complaints from my taste-testers.
Smoked gouda cheese is one of my favorites, but you might have to look in the specialty cheese section of your grocery store to find it! You’ll want to buy a block and shred it yourself for the best tasting dip. ♥
