Why you’ll love it

Aside from the fact that this dip is DELICIOUS here are a few other reasons why you need to make this dip for the big game this weekend. Or, really, for any party you’re throwing.

  • Simple- Doesn’t get much easier than 5 ingredients and 1 food processor am I right?
  • Quick- This jalapeño lime almond dip is ready in about 15 minutes. You heard me, 15 minutes. What are you waiting for?
  • Spicy- Make this dip as spicy (or as not spicy) as you want. When you make dips at home you’re in control of the heat level. I prefer mine spicy, but to each his or her own.
  • Creamy- Another perk of making your dips at home is that they will never be dry. Always creamy and smooth. Perfection.
  • Fresh- store-bought dips are definitely convenient. But let’s face it, they were made a while ago and are loaded with preservatives to keep them fresh. Well, kinda fresh. There’s nothing like a freshly made dip. Trust me.

Jalapeños

Let’s take a second to talk about using jalapeños (or any spicy pepper). Just a few quick tips to prevent the capsaicin (spicy pepper oil) from burning your skin:

  • Wear thick rubber gloves when slicing and removing the spine and seeds from the flesh of the pepper.
  • Use gloved hands to pick up any stray seeds and spines.
  • Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water before touching your eyes, nose, mouth, or ears.

Dip

Once you’ve allowed the almonds to soak for at least 8 hours (preferably overnight), drain and rinse them with fresh water. Add the soaked almonds, jalapeños, lime juice, olive oil and salt to the bowl of a high-powered food processor. Process the dip until the almonds are smooth, stoping frequently to scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add water 1/4 cup of a time to help the dip smooth out and come together. I usually add about 1/3-1/2 cup of water.

This dip is great when served at room temperature or it can be eaten right out of the refrigerator. Eat it with the usual: chips, vegetables, a spoon…Any way you enjoy it, just be sure to let me know what you think. Enjoy friends!
