Chipotle Dip

I know I say this all the time, but seriously - this is one of my most favorite recipes to make. If I had to pick my top 5 "most made" recipes, this is definitely one of them.

I'm a huge lover of chipotle chilies, and of course anything with cilantro in it gets my vote too. With the full amount of chilies called for, it's a fairly spicy dip, but the coolness of the sour cream helps to temper it.

Chipolte Dip

Chipotle Dip
3-4 canned chipotle chilies in adobo sauce
1 tsp adobo sauce
2 scallions, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp fresh cilantro, minced
1/4 c monterey jack cheese
1/2 c mayonaise
1 c sour cream
1 tsp lime juice
1/4 tsp cumin
Salt/pepper to taste

Puree chipoltes in 1 tsp of adobo sauce. Place into medium sized bowl, and add the remaining ingredients. Stir well and allow to chill in the refrigerator for a few hours. Serve with fresh crudite or chips.

NWJR - Thanks, kid! Good to see you still hanging around.

Harmonia - Canned chipotle peppers come in the adobo sauce. At least that's the only way I've ever seen them.

Tanna - Nope, no smoke or mirrors. Just good luck with gravity.

What an amazing picture! Great photography!

Question on the monterey jack - is it shredded or diced? I can't wait to try it. It looks fantastic.

A whole array of anti-obesity pills and medicines are available in the market that helps you to trigger off successful weight loss but the weight loss diet pill Xenical is somewhat different as it prevents around 30% of the fat you take from being absorbed in your system. This further leads to less fat accumulation and ultimately weight loss becomes a reality. For more details on Xenical, visit the website http://www.weight-loss-truths.com
