I know the title of this post may sound like a handful, but the recipe is actually really simple. My mom recently had a little get together for all of the women she used to work at IBM with. Lucky for me I was crashing at her house this night, which meant all the Sangria and appetizers I could ask for in exchange for playing with an adorable three-month year old puppy all night (rough I know).
One of the ladies brought this AMAZING dip. When I first tasted it I didn’t really know what it was except for that it had cheese in it. I was instantly in love- sweet, yet cheesy, yet spicy? What was this?! I spent the next half hour hunting down the recipe. I found out that the interesting twist in the recipe was jalapeno jelly, something I had never even heard of before then. Either way, I might have to say this is probably my favorite appetizer dip to date, plus it is so easy to make. Don’t be weary of the strange ingredient combination, this recipe is too delicious to pass up!
