New dip discovery!

DH and I invented a new dip. I always take something (usually cookies) to the gallery where I show my paintings on Art Walk nights. Too warm to bake today, so Jerry suggested dip.

We both love cuchuahates (peanuts) enchilado (coated with chili powder). They are easy to find here, maybe not so easy up north. Here's what we did (measurements are approximate):

3 cups roasted shelled salted peanuts enchilado (or add 2 TBS chili powder)
1 TBS oil
2 TBS dried chile flakes
1 cup sour cream
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp organo
1 tsp garlic salt
1/2 cup diced cooked bacon (I used the Hormel chopped bacon that comes ready cooked).

Put the peanuts in the food processor and process until they are like peanut butter. Add remaining ingredients and process to blend. Chill and serve with tortilla chips or celery.

I know it sounds a little strange, but everyone loved it and gobbled it up. People were coming into the gallery just to try the dip, because they had heard about it from someone else... It is pretty picante, so if you are not fond of spicy food, you might leave out the dried pepper flakes.

Oh, and I sold a painting, too! So it was a good night all around.

LOL - it seems to loose something in the translation to "spicy peanut butter with sour cream and bacon".

Thanks for posting MexiceKaren, this looks interesting! I am always on the lookout for sandwich filling ideas, and I will try this one. I am STILL packing lunches for dh, retirement plans have not worked out yet! The recipe I currently use the most was posted a while back by Redkitty, is a cannellini bean based dip.

And congratulations on the sale of a painting!!! The art market in the US is quite depressed right now. My sister shows in 4 galleries, two in her home town of Taos NM, and one of those galleries is closing this month: there is no traffic in that gallery at present.

MK; That was a great combination. I know that peanuts and spices are used in Thai food frequently. That you put together the flavors you did shows wonderful imagination. And it sounds very tasty. I might just have to try this out at one of our church pot lucks. Thanks for posting.

Thanks to all for your encouragement! I did google the ingredients this afternoon, and found a few recipes that were similar. One used lime juice - that might be a good addition, as well as cilantro. I'll keep refining it. Meanwhile, I had the leftovers for lunch, stuffed into celery. Yum.
