I Could Eat This Stuff For Dinner!
This Wild Southwest Dip is great for parties, tailgating, or private snacking. It is incredibly easy to make, good for making in advance or eating right away, and makes for a nice alternative to the usual tomato-based salsas out there.
I must make a confession: I do love a good dip. It is one of my guilty pleasures. When I get the chance to relax, I love savoring a flavorful dip with some chips while watching my favorite shows. (Watching ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars is another one of my guilty pleasures. I’m probably not part of the target age group, but since discovering the show through Netflix a couple of years ago, I just can’t get enough of the mystery and drama.) Now, though I am a big fan of tomato-based creations and nachos with generous amounts of beef, sometimes, I get a bit overloaded with that, and my palate and stomach get a hankering for something a little lighter–something smooth and creamy.
This dip is the perfect answer for that. I’m not sure that living in the rural Southwest would be the ideal spot for me (I rather like the small-town Southern life; it is a nice blend of urban and country, old-timey and modern), but I do love some of the flavors that that part of the country has cultivated and made so famous. Here you can have that nice Southwestern ranch flavor in gourmet snack form in practically no time and with little effort at all!
