Congrats to our latest winner, Pamela Shank! She told me she was so excited to hear about her achievement, she called her husband in the middle of a meeting at work! I have to tell you, one of the best parts of my job is getting to deliver good news. It’s so wonderful to hear our readers excited about a recipe contest win!
Pam says, “I had created this recipe a few years ago. I was having company from out of town that weekend so I used them as my taste testers. For 2 straight days they tested appetizer recipes! This particular one really was a favorite. I have also taken it to many different events. I have tried variations of this to make it spicier for some crowds. It is just a good and easy basic dip recipe. So many crowds like southwest themed foods so I think this is a reason it is so popular. For a short period of time,I sold Pampered Chef so I frequently took this to parties as an extra treat. Everyone always asked for the recipe. I like to make dips that have meats as well as cream cheese and spices in them.”

This dip is a little hot and spicy but will be great to munch on while watching football games.
