Hola! Today I’m sharing a recipe for a Spicy Mexican Dip that is so easy to make. I like a little spice in my food – enough to make my taste buds jump for joy but not enough to make me start sweating at the dinner table. You can increase the spice in this dip depending on how much of a workout you want to give your taste buds. When I cook for my myself, I can add just the right amount of spice for my taste yet when I cook for my parents my dad likes little-to-no spice (or flavor!) so I have to adjust my recipes accordingly.
