A few years ago I went on a cheese ball craze. I couldn’t make myself stop coming up with new recipes and I sort of went somewhat overboard with making them. It’s all kind of a blur now, but I think that my family may have decided that I needed an intervention and may have hidden the cream cheese from me. The need for the intervention was all my son in-law’s fault. I already had a favorite cheese ball recipe of my own, but Tim got me started on a ranch cheese ball that his mom makes. One thing lead to another and pretty soon there were cheese balls everywhere–and I’m not talking about my family.
This dip was originally a cheese ball. Excellent, by the way. But, for my own sake and the lessons learned during the intervention phase, I have turned this into a dip. All you have to do to make a cheese ball into a dip is to thin out the mixture, substituting some of the cream cheese with sour cream. I also added lime juice and ta-da, it became a dip!
