Creamy Chipotle Dip

Recipe by Julesong

Cool and creamy chipotle dip... mmm! This is a real hit at parties of all sorts, in all seasons! (You can even use this as a pasta sauce and as a topper for sandwiches and burgers, or stir a little into some chowder.) Prep includes chilling.

I know in an hour it is going to be even better than what I got off the mixing spoon!!! Not sure if the amount of cheese listed in the ingredients gets mixed in or if it is used as the garnish on top?? I don't think it will make any difference other than alter the texture. For first testing I will omit the cheese as I don't have any montery jack. I used 0% plain Greek Yogurt instead of the sour cream and 1 1/2 chipotle peppers and 2 garlic cloves. Still deciding if I should put the cumin in as there is a good kick to it already.......I am positive this recipe will be a make again since I am always looking for ways to use those peppers once you open the can to use a couple in one recipe...then what!! Make this recipe
