As the country celebrates the last long weekend of the summer, here in SE Texas we are recovering from Hurricane Harvey Thankfully my family is safe and dry but so many others around us are not. If you want to help support to disaster relief you can donate here or to the American Red Cross. Anything you can give will be used to help restore a family!
Bring on a little fiesta
Have a last minute get together this afternoon or evening? Tired of the same ole boring ranch dip that you make for every party? I know I am, and so a few weeks ago I decided to spice things up a bit. With just a few simple additions you can change your basic party dip into a fiesta in your mouth.
Yes…a FIESTA in your mouth!!
As spicy as you want
There are some people in my family that love a ton of heat in their food, and then there are others that prefer a more mild option and this dip has a little something for everyone. There is a little heat, but not too much, and with the optional toppings your guests can make it as spicy as they like.
My dad likes everything really spicy so he added in extra jalapeños and extra pico. For me I like it a bit more mild so I threw in some extra cilantro and additional chopped onion. Some people ate it just as is, while others added in some extra lime juice. The possibilities are too many to list, but all are so good.
Not just for a party
This dip is not just for your next party. I made it for Taco Tuesday and added it to some fish tacos. They would be great on nachos or quesadillas…really anything.
This is out new go to dip for sure!!
