When J. saw that I had posted my guacamole recipe the other day, he immediately had a craving. He stopped at the store on the way home and picked up the ingredients so I could make it that night. Normally, I buy Medium level salsa, but J. bought Hot. Holy crap. We like things spicy, but jesus this was major. We tried to eat it plain, but it just wasn’t refreshing, because it was so over the top. To cool things down a bit, I decided to play with some cheese, and see if that helped. It did! And it was pretty similar (though not at all authentic) to the dip at our favorite Mexican joint.
1 Block Cream Cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar
1/2 cup salsa
Warm up cream cheese in microwave for 30 seconds. Stir in cheddar and salsa. Microwave for another 30 seconds, stir, then repeat if needed, until hot. Enjoy!
