    another Andi dip–yay! Like the simplicity. Speaking of, do you have a good recipe for a DIY Ranch dip/dressing? I hate buying those packets, but haven’t convinced my oldest–who loves the stuff–that my versions are better. She has given thumbs-down to every recipe I’ve tried so far. Betting if anyone can make her happy, it would be you :-D Do you have a tried-and-true? Maybe even this one without the salsa and cheese? Please advise…

    I love how easy this dip is…everything is already in the kitchen! No need to make a special trip to the store….although, my grocery store people see me every single day. (Sometimes, 3 times a day. Yes, it’s bad.) Love dip when it’s entertaining the peeps. Pinning this recipe, for sure! (Besides, it’s my fave flavor!)

      Thanks, Gloria! I’m a regular at my grocery store too, but I try to keep it to once a day ;) Sometimes it’s so great to have a recipe with kitchen staples so you can get a snack fix with what you have on hand!

      Hi, Xena. You could try cream cheese, but since it’s much thicker and richer, it would change the dip a lot. You would probably need to soften it at room temperature and maybe double the salsa to make it soft enough to dip.

    Could I substitute plain yogurt for the sour cream? Trying to find a healthy alternative with a little protein?! Plus, I just made some yogurt and don’t have sour cream :)).

    Please let me know.

    Thanks!

      Hi, Victoria. Yes, yogurt will be perfect in this recipe. I’m so impressed that you made your own! I hope you enjoy the dip, and thanks so much for your visit.

    I love going for dinner to friends and family who have appetizers prior to dinner. Notice that is plural. It seems I am in such a swirl to get dinner ready—plus I like to set a fancy table—that appetizers are left standing at the bus stop. I try to get one prepared, but inevitably someone (s) have a dislike or allergy or who knows what about it. Having a choice is of course the answer. But I feel righteous to have even one.
    Now this is really really easy. Choices—yay!

    • Andi says

      Hi, Carol! This comment made me laugh so hard! I’m the same way: I love having an appetizer(s) before dinner, but if people are coming to my house, they are lucky to get a cheese plate before the main event. This dip is so easy though, there’s no excuse not to mix it up to hold off hungry people. I hope you like it if you get a chance to try it. Thanks a lot for stopping by :)
