Appetizer -My Sister's Awesome Dip

I made this layered dip for the New House Party and it was a huge hit. I made sure to give my sis all the credit by referring to it exclusively as "My sister's awesome dip" throughout the evening. She gave me this recipe in the family cookbook, so it's special to me.

My Sister's Awesome Dip

8 oz soft cream cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise

Mix well and spread into a pie plate or casserole dish

1 medium jar of salsa (spiciness of your choice)
1 medium green pepper, chopped
2 green onions, chopped
1 large tomato, chopped
2 cups shredded cheese (mozzarella, monterey jack, whatever you like)

Spread salsa over cream cheese mix, then add chopped veggies and cover with shredded cheese. I used a pre-shredded "Mexican blend" to make my life easier.
Serve with scoopy chips. For scooping.

Note the "Pi" plate I served it in. That was a Christmas present from my Dad, and I love it. My sister-in-law reminded me that Pi Day is approaching faster than we realize, and that I will have to bake a pie for the occasion, especially now that I have the absolutely most perfect pie plate to bake it in. So, I'll need to master pie crust by March 14th. Wish me luck.

  1. When I saw this dip, I was stunned because it looks just like a dip my family has always made, and I'd never seen anyone else make it! It turns out that your sister's is a little different, but it was definitely yummy and I ate lots :)
