Well I spent my Tuesday, working on cookies for the Blog Cookie Swap, still not sure what I want to make. I did create a cookie that tastes pretty awesome, I’ll share the recipe with you at a later date, I want to get more opinions to see what they think before I share it with you.
Every week I like to create a dip, so I have something to nibble on throughout the day. This week I created a yummy, easy taco dip. I had it on my chicken wrap and I also dipped my veggies into it. Tomorrow I’ll be making a Mexican type Burger, so I’ll be using my dip on that too!
I just love snacky foods, especially when you can use them for more then one purpose. I bet this dip would be good on a baked potato too!
This dip has a slight kick to it, but you can give it more of a kick if you like by adding more jalapenos or spicy salsa.
You could also double batch this recipe and use it for a holiday party or football party. If serving at a party I would top it with cheese, maybe some black olives and some diced tomatoes. Serve it with some nacho chips or pita chips.
2.5 oz Fat Free Cream Cheese (softened)
5 Jalapenos- Pickled in Jar
