Through the years, I noticed so many dips made with cream cheese. Never embraced this idea. Decided to try it. Loved it! Made the dip for my family this past Christmas. It was a hit!
This Spicy Dip is easy and quick to put together. Adjust the herbs, spices and peppers to your liking. Use your tolerance as a guide when using habanero peppers.

There are no measurements for some of the ingredients. Add according to your taste.

I like to use the mixer instead of hand mixing because I am looking for a lighter texture in the cream cheese.  So, you simply add the (room temperature) cream cheese in a mixing bowl. Mix to a creamy texture.

Mix all the ingredients.

It’s the start of a new year…look forward to posting my favorite savory dishes.

This blog is a personal diary of recipes I enjoy to make and share with my family and friends. It is not a blog to post recipes for the sake of posting recipes.
