Pineapple Habanero Dip
Every time we post a dip recipe Cade and I end up singing, “When I dip, you dip, we dip…” That’s the only part of the song we remember, so it gets old pretty fast. We are both big suckers for dip recipes, especially during football or basketball season, but this pineapple habanero dip is perfect for year round.
It’s a little different than your normal cream cheese and cranberry dip, and it’s just as delicious as a gooey chorizo queso dip, but it totally has its own thing going on. We start by beating cream cheese until smooth then fold in queso fresco or if I’m craving something more salty we do cotija cheese. Then, pour a little of your favorite pineapple habanero salsa over the top (we buy ours from costco and make this amazing pork too) and serve with pita chips or crackers!
- 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
- ⅓-1/2 Cup Queso Fresco or Cotija is fine
- Pineapple Habanero Salsa from the store* or any flavor pineapple salsa
- Pita Chips for serving
- In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the cheese and spread into a mound on a platter. Pour the salsa evenly over the top and sprinkle with a little extra cheese as garnish. Serve immediately or wrap in saran wrap and place in the fridge to be served within an hour.
