Made this twice for two different Thanksgiving crowds with and without heavy whip cream. HEAVY WHIPPING CREAM MAKES THIS DISH!!! Don't sub anything low-cal if you're trying to watch your fat calories go eat a carrot. Also I took the suggestion of sprinkling more cheese on top and putting it under the broiler for a few minutes; it looks a lot more appealing this way. (But delicious either way). Thanks for a wonderful appetizer!
OMG! This is the BEST dip ever! Great hot or cold...I've made this at least 10 times in the last 3 months or so, and it's always a hit.
I always substitute a big jalapeno (or 2 small ones) for the pimentos, and add a couple cloves of freshly minced garlic. Also, I squeeze the juice of one lemon into the mix before baking. You can substitute a bunch of chives for the green onions for extra flavor - if not, I recommend just using a small bunch of green onions, instead of just 2 TBSP of them. If you like seafood, add a 6ox. can of flaked crabmeat - YUMMY!
I always serve these with Tostitos lime flavored chips, and usually make a double-batch because it goes so quickly! Thanks for the awesome recipe!
This is great served in Hawaiian Bread- available almost anywhere. Cut a large core into the loaf for the dip spray with olive oil before stuffing with dip. Use the remaining bread as "croutons" cubing and lightly toasting them. I added just a PINCH of crushed red pepper flakes when blending the cheese. GREAT presentation! Dust with paprika to add color. Thanks for a great recipe!
Good recipe but next time I will add a touch of jalapeno peppers for a spark. It was kind of on the bland side to me but still tasty. I served it on toasted sourdough cocktail bread and think that is the only "dipper" I would use for this dip. I will make it again.
