Potluck BBQ season has kicked off here again!!…Any reason for a fiesta, and I’m all in!  One of my favorite things about throwing a party is the tasty and diverse array of little munchies, dips, and apps that accompany. This cheesy dip is protein packed, and even with corn as an ingredient, is relatively low-carb!  It is delicious and I can bet the bowl will be scraped clean…This is perfect for a potluck appetizer. It is an easy one to make ahead and let the flavors marinate in the fridge before serving.

This recipe will make you a party-sized bowl to pair with a whole bag of chips!

I served with CHIPZ HAPPEN brand. Use code “FOODIE” today for 15% off your online order via their website. The all-natural San Diego Style restaurant chips with nutrient-rich Himalayan sea salt and a touch of lime paired so well.  USE CODE “FOODIE”
