My 2 year old assistant - she sees the camera, gets in front of it and says "CHEESE"!! Such a goof!!
This dip is delightfully creamy and zesty. It makes a wonderful dip to accompany an assortment of crackers, and I also used it in a hot baked french bread appetizer. It also works as a salad spread on sandwiches! It's incredibly versatile and easy to tweak the flavors to your personal preference. The Not Ketchup Tangerine Hatch Chile sauce is fantastic - there is no added sugar and the recipe is a unique blend of bold with a subtle sweetness from the fruit. It's fantastic and you can use this sauce a million different ways!
We really enjoyed this shrimp dip - and I am looking forward to the little bit that's left on a croissant for lunch tomorrow!
