One thing I love about this time of year is all the excuses to gather with friends and have a party! My favorite thing to bring to a party is chips and dip! I especially love show stopping dips like this cheesy jalapeño dip!
I will give you fair warning...this dip is addictive! Like once you start you literally can't stop until it's all gone!
Or maybe that's just me and my total lack of self control when eating delicious food. But could you resist this cheesy goodness?
Whenever I take this dip to a party I always get so many recipe requests. It's definitely a crowd pleaser! Just last week I sat around a table with a group of girls and the six of us finished off a whole plate of dip in less than an hour... Don't judge until you try it!
If you've never tried blue corn tortilla chips then you need to try them with this dip. They're so good!
Of course, regular tortilla chips are tasty as well.
