I know this may seem odd at first, but this appetizer is really and truly very addictive! If you like pickles anyway.....
Very fast and easy, and it can be served hot or cold, which makes it a perfect tailgating recipe!
Dill Pickle Dip
16 oz sour cream
1 - 8 oz block cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup chopped dill pickles
2 Tb dill (fresh or dried)
1 cup shredded cheese - I used mozzarella
Salt and pepper, to taste
Chips, crackers, toasted bread &/or veggies for dipping
1. In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth and creamy. Mix in sour cream until completely combined.
2. Stir in remaining ingredients and taste. Please note that if you are making this in advance (i.e. 8-12 hours before serving) that dill flavor will intensify. I love dill, I mean big squishy heart l-o-v-e- forever dill! So I like to add a little more.
3. If serving hot, spoon dip into an oven ( or grill safe aluminum pan!) safe dish and refrigerate until ready to heat and serve. If serving cold, spoon into your favorite tailgating sports theme dish! It's pretty to sprinkle with a little extra chopped pickle and dill.
4. To heat - place in oven or on grill and heat until cheese is melted. About 10-15 minutes.
*Use any pickle you like! Dill is my favorite, but play around with what you have on hand - spicy, bread and butter, home-made, so many options!
*If you want a little kick, add a pinch of red pepper flakes, or a tablespoon of diced, pickled jalapeno!
Hope you enjoy!
