Raspberry Chipotle Cream Cheese Dip (& Jib Jab!)
This is one of my favorite go-to appetizers to serve at my home or bring to a party. It could not be easier, and is oh, so good! If you have a Sam's Club in your area, pick up a bottle of this the next time you are there:
It's on the aisle with the barbeque sauces. I got hooked on this treat a few years ago, Sam's quit carrying the sauce, I found something similar at a local grocery store, and then they quit carrying it about a year ago! I truly crave this through the year sometimes, so when I discovered that they had it again (maybe it's seasonal?) I've snatched up 4 bottles. No sirree, not running out of this stuff anytime soon. If you invite me to a party you can guess what I'll bring!
By the way, do NOT get this expecting it to be the same...
Blech! Very barbeque-y.
All you need to do is set out a brick of cream cheese and let it soften, and then liberally pour the sauce over the top. Wheat thins are the perfect accompaniment to scoop up the dip.
I hope you try it and enjoy it, it's one of our family's favorites (the adults, anyway!).
On a side note, my kids are hooked on the Jib Jab "Elf Yourself" cards that you can make online. Here's our most recent. It's especially amusing to us because even though what each person is doing is totally random in the song, ours turned out perfectly. Ray really does play the drums and I really did play the bass violin in junior high. Funny!
Go here to make your own.
