What are you putting together for your New Year’s Eve party? Want something easy that really is good? Here is a hot cheese dip that is sure to please most everyone! Since October I have made this on four different occasions. When carrying it to a party just bake it there. It will be better right out of the oven. Let’s get cooking!
Toast about 1 cup of pecans in a tablespoon of butter in the oven at 325 degrees for about 10- 15 minutes. If you don’t want to take the time to do this just leave this step out. I just think that it brings out the flavor of the nuts.
The next step is to finely chop bell pepper and onion. Use an electric food chopper in order to get these really fine. 1/3 cup of bell pepper is needed and 1/4 cup of onion. Sorry I did not take a picture of this. I had company and I am sure that I was talking.
Serve with a buttery cracker such as Townhouse. Enjoy!
I did not take a picture after cooking. Again talking. My sisters and my two nephews were here and I was so excited to see them that the picture just did not happen. Trust me it is a beautiful light brown and bubbly when you take it out of the oven. Watch yourself after tasting this. You’ll be planted by the dish eating the dip with cracker after cracker and no one else will be able to taste it. That’s usually what I want to do. It is that good!
Hope you all have a Happy New Year! And here is the recipe.
