I am constantly amazed by the ability of sour cream to turn anything into a dip. Even if it already is a dip! Guacamole is pretty awesome, but add sour cream and you have guacamole dip! Yesterday, my wife made a salsa dip with some leftover homemade salsa.
I had never even thought of combining salsa and sour cream. But my wife whipped it up and my mind was blown. Of course, that salsa I made was pretty good in it’s own right. :)
This is so easy that I feel bad about writing a post about it. But I try to always post a recipe on Sundays and Financial Samurai has been inspiring me to write more. So far I’m not faring to well in that challenge. :)
- 1 c. salsa
- 1 c. sour cream
- In small bowl, combine salsa and sour cream.
In some ways, the point of this recipe isn’t so much to talk about a salsa dip. It’s about dip in general. Sour cream makes a great dip base and all matter of unconventional flavors. Don’t get caught up in making the same old dips every time. At home, whenever we had dip, it was French onion and Ranch. Maybe we had salsa. I was in college the first time I had guacamole! Those four dips were the totality of my exposure to dip until a couple years ago.
But have fun and try different flavors. I’ve used guacamole; this time was salsa. What other foods do you enjoy that can be mixed with sour cream to make a new and exciting dip?
