Smoked Cheddar Southwestern Dip

Smoked Cheddar Southwestern Dip

How great does this smoked cheddar southwestern dip look?? I’m rushing to finish this post because I really want you to be able to make this for the Superbowl. :) I actually made this dip for our New Year’s Eve get together, and I’ve been thinking about it ever since. I can’t wait to make it again! I don’t know if you can tell from the pictures, but this dip is warm and melty and deliciously cheesy.  The smoked cheddar gives it a great flavor and pairs perfectly with the southwestern flavors of the corn, beans, and cilantro. It is so perfect served with salty tortilla chips, and neither Mike nor I could stop eating it. Actually, everyone seemed to really love it, and there was none left after the party. Best of all, it’s really easy to make and can be made a day in advance. Just assemble all the ingredients, refrigerate, then bake right before you’re planning to serve it. I hope you try this one – it’s sure to be a hit!
