You don’t need a mixer to whip up this dip – just a mixing bowl and a spoon will do. Bake it in the oven for 20 minutes and let it cool before digging in. Dip with celery, carrots, cucumber, and peppers. I actually went ahead and dipped freshly chopped jalapeños in this (yes, with the seeds in). Talk about spicy. And if you really want to indulge, go ahead and use some tortilla chips. Why not.
Funny story, our youngest daughter loves spicy and salty foods, she will literally eat a medium hot chicken wing sitting beside her daddy. Pickles and olives are her favourite too. On the other hand, while this is happening, our 3 year would be running for the other side of the house. Not surprising. We’re hoping her taste buds change as she gets older!
