Hot Pink Party Dip

 The dip is hot and it is pink.  Recipe is an oldie but goody, a hit at every party. People can never seem to figure out the ingredients, thinking it's much more complicated.  Well, the secret is....


a block of cream cheese and 1/4 - 1/2 cup salsa.  Yep, that's it. Soften and beat the cream cheese.  Gradually add salsa to your desired taste/consistency. 

Try it.  
You'll like it.

Happy Pink Saturday Tammy Sweetie...
Oh does this ever look elegant, and sounds SO yummy. I love that it is simple, some times we just don't have a lot of time to put things together. I think even my grands would love this. Colorful and we can choose the strength of hotness that we like. Love that.

Oh I thank you for the beautiful share today. I can't wait with the holidays coming to give it a try. Have a gorgeous Saturday sweetie.

Many hugs and much love, Sherry

LV said...

I might be able to make this since it only calls for two ingredients. I do not cook much anymore. You snack a lot when you are by yourself.

From the Kitchen said...

It looks delicious and I'm into "easy"! I finally got a copy of "Christmas Cottage". None at Barnes and Nobel or Borders. My sister found one for me at Sam's in Orlando. I guess you might say I have an "imported" one.

Best,
Bonnie

Kat from California said...

Hi Beatrice, Thanks for following me. You have a beautiful blog. I used to substitute teach till I got ill and wish I could do it once in a while but it doesn't work that way. :) I taught K-5th as a sub and I had my own classroom in 2nd and loved it. I quit to stay home with my daughter and planned on returning when she went to preschool. At that time I did subbing and wanted a full time position when she was 5 but there wasn't anything available. Now I'm selling stuff on e-BAY.

Thanks for visiting.

Sara Chapman said...

What a good idea, and easy, too! I'll have to remember that one.

Sares said...

I have had the cream cheese with the salsa poured on top, but never mixed the two together. I'll have to try it, especially since it comes out such a pretty pink color! Hope you had a fabulous pink weekend!

Tiffanee said...

Yum! This is one of my favorites!! I end up eating it with or without something to dip it in. Thanks for the great reminder!!
