This dip was the talk of the reception and everyone kept asking, “Rachel, is this recipe going to be on your blog?” What on earth is in this magical dip you may ask? It’s perfectly creamy and cheesy, yet has this spicy kick at the end of each bite. So here it is. Make this for your next gathering and watch as your guests go wild!
