Well it is Super Bowl Weekend!! I can’t believe it is already February….this year is already flying by.
What fun plans do you have this weekend?
I live in the Houston area so we are going to take in some of the fun Super Bowl activities and taking some time to chill out a bit with family. We will be watching the Big Game from home and I know one thing that will be on the menu…Dill Pickle Dip! Yes I said dill pickle dip.
Dill Pickle Dip?
Ok, so I know this may not be what you were expecting, but trust me it is AMAZING! There is a local restaurant that we love called State Fare and if you are in the Houston area make sure to check it out. Everything we have had is AMAZING! My favorite appetizer is the Dill Pickle Dip…it is AMAZING!!
It is rich and creamy with a perfect amount of fresh dill & dill pickle in each bite. Everything put together makes for a perfect bite and I can never get enough. The restaurant pairs the dip with homemade salt & pepper chips, which were amazing but to be honest I could eat this dip with a spoon…it was so good.
It’s time to celebrate
Whether you are cheering for The Patriots or The Falcons this dip needs to be on the menu.
It has taken me a few attempts and many taste tests by The Hubby I but I have finally mastered it! The secret I found is to use both fresh & dried dill. Don’t worry though it is not too overwhelming, it really is just perfect. I also use a whole cup of chopped pickles. I love the texture it adds to the dip…ok I need to make this right now.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, or a large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth
Add in sour cream, garlic powder, fresh dill, dried dil, salt & pepper mixing until well combined
Add in pickle juice, mixing until juice is well incorporated
Stir in chopped pickle
Place into smaller bowl and cover with foil or cling wrap
Store in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours (overnight is best), or until ready to serve
Stir and taste, add in more salt or pickle juice if needed
Serve & ENJOY!

I understand if this does not get you excited, I wasn’t very excited when we ordered it the first time but I urge you to give it a try. Trust me, I think it will become a favorite dip in your house, just like it is in mine.
