I love the dipping oil served at my two favorite Italian restaurants. Both restaurants vary slightly in ingredients. Here is my version that brings the best of both worlds. Serve with warm bread fresh out of the oven and enjoy!
This recipe calls for chipotle chiles, which are actually dried, smoked jalapenos. They can be bought packed in adobo, a sauce made from ground chiles, herbs, tomatoes, and vinegar. Serve the dip with bell pepper strips, chips, or crackers. From Gourmet, 1999
This is an simple, incredible dip for pork chops or narrow strips of deep fried beef steak. It will turn a "ho-hum" serving of chops into a gourmet experience that will demand many replays. Believe me, it is awesome and soooo simple.
There are a ton of Spinach Artichoke Dip recipes...but this one is special. The ranch dressing and sour cream and dill give a flavor that is not typical. I once won a appetizer contest with this and when I serve it, people just devour it. I prefer to serve it with Wheat Thins. I once made it in a mini crockpot, and it worked wonderfully!
My sister made this for Christmas this year and I bugged her for the recipe so I could enjoy it whenever I wanted. You may use it as a spread or a dip, but we like it best served on Cocktail Party Rye bread. It would also be good on Pumpernickel too. Few ingredients, yet tons of flavor!
I had a craving for some black bean and corn salsa, so I went to work...and came up with this fresh tasting, colorful, and low fat creation that has the added bonus of scaring away any vampire within at least 20 miles (and co-workers who share the lunchroom!!/LOL!!) You can alter the amount of garlic, but I LOVE IT!!! You may also add jalapenos if you like heat. Serve with tortillas, use as a topping for tacos or burritos, or add to a fresh green salad.
This dip is easy and delicious!!! Your friends and family will not be able to get enough! It is important that you do not substitute the Miracle Whip for any other mayonnaise, because it will not have the same flavor. This is the true taste of Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato! Please come back and rate this recipe after you have enjoyed it!!!
I got this recipe from a friend of mine after eating it at a Christmas party. I usually cut back on the chips I stir into the ball and roll the ball in chips instead of nuts. Just personal preference. I also buy regular and chocolate graham crackers and arrange them around the ball for a nice presentation. Enjoy!
This is from a hand-out that was distributed by a local grower in the weekly Culver City, CA farmer's market. The chiptole gives it a great flavor. You will have a lot of chiptoles left over - just dump the rest of the can in a freezer bag and freeze for later (lay the bag out flat, so you can break of just one at a time once they're frozen). They're pretty hot, look out!
P.S. If you are looking for Pico de Gallo and not Salsa, omit the canned tomato and double the fresh tomato.
