This is a recipe I adopted from the Recipezaar account. KC Cooker tested it out as part of an adoptee swap and had some great suggestions. I've changed the recipe to incorporate her suggestions and I think the end result is a nice improvement.
This is a fabulous fruit dip that has more ingredients than the traditional cream-cheese-and-marshmallow-cream variety. It has more ingredients but is easy to make...I just dump it all together in the trusty Kitchenaid mixer and let'er blend! This is delious as a dip (recipe below) or you can thin it with a little more milk (1/4 c. more) and make a sauce to toss your fruit with for fruit salad. (I only put a minute of "cook" time to please the website...it's really just a mix-and-serve recipe.)
Take my advice, make lots of this dip. The recipe may say that it is for 4 servings, but I have seen sophisticated friends turn barbaric over a bowl of this stuff. It's very sweet and goes great with tart apples.
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
Wonderful dip for graham crackers, cookies, and anything that goes good with chocolate chip cookie dough! My mom got this recipe from a friend of hers and made it when I was little. I loved it, and I hope you'll love it too! Definitely a kid pleaser.
I was making another one of my recipes - Caramel Cream Cheese Apple Dip - and I got a little overboard and the caramel went over the plate. I knew I couldn't serve it to my guests that way and I also didn't want to waste cream cheese and caramel, so I put it in my mixer and blended it all together. The result was a rich and creamy apple dip. When you dip the apple pieces in it, it tastes just like a delicious caramel apple!
This is an easy appetizer you can literally whip up in 5 minutes - it's best if you prepare at least 6 hours ahead of serving to allow for chilling and having the flavors 'blend' together. Makes all the difference in the world.
My co-worker stops at the Mi Tierra restaurant in Ridgeland, SC on her way to work every night and gets take out. They always include their homemade chips and guacamole dip. I hate guacamole, but this dip is the absolute best. They won't part with the recipe, so I worked on it a bit and I think this is it.
