breadcrumbs for apperizer

Use tortilla chips or toasted bread slices for dipping.

It is so yummy and we did not find it spicy at all. I think in part this is because I de-seeded the peppers.

I love it with tortilla chips, personally.


When I cook, I always have paper towels handy. Seriously- they are always on my shopping list. Making this dip was no exception. Bounty is 2x more absorbent and it it’s been around for 50 years to clean up all of the big game day party messes!

If you’re planning a football watch party, focus on the game and not the fumbles! Have Bounty at your side!
