Queso dip topped with a little cream cheese is one of my favorite ways to eat a tortilla chip. And this homemade chipotle cheddar queso dip does double duty and supports small business!
It’s that time again y’all. Monthly Ingredient Challenge time. And even though we’re a few days late I promise that we’re bringing the thunder! Or, you know, the cream cheese. I want to confess that I purchased six packages of cream cheese trying to decide what I was going to make for this round. Six! I kid you not. And as a result there will be some amazing cream cheesy things going on around here. But you’ll have to sign up for my newsletter to see the other fantastic recipes I created during my cream cheese extravaganza exclusively for my eCookbook launching soon!
I made this chocolate cream cheese frosting for a friend’s birthday and briefly considered waiting to use it for this challenge but when all I could think of to make with cream cheese was nothing but a sweet dessert I was determined to create something savory. Hence the six packages of cream cheese.
Once the 4th of July is over it’s just one long, slow countdown to football season around here and I’ve already got tail gating and party snacks on the brain! In May we visited a local craft fair and happened upon this stand, SnS Dips & Gifts, that sold dip mixes. Uh, duh. Support local business people! So I bought a bunch and asked them if I could blog about them and they graciously agreed.
I bought a few sweet mixes and several savory ones that erred on the side of spicy. The cheddar chipotle jalapeno mix is what I used for this queso dip and it was perrrrrfect. Just the right amount of heat, perfectly creamy, and tastes great on tortilla chips! You could serve it with veggies or chicken tenders. I plan on adding it to my enchiladas the next time I make them and it’ll probably make an appearance in a Mexican casserole I’ve got in the works, too 😉
You can order these online (all orders over $20 get free shipping!) and you won’t regret it. Otherwise put together your own chipotle seasoning mix and serve this up at your next tail gate or end of summer party. Cause this would probably go great with a margarita and who doesn’t love a good margarita? No one that’s who.
