Horseradish Cheese Dip and Spinach Artichoke Dip
I had a meeting tonight where I was responsible for snacks. I made both of these for that meeting.
Horseradish Cheese Dip
1/4 cup stout or lager beer (I used Yuengling since this is what I had available)
1/4 cup soft tofu
1/4 pound of cream cheese
3/4 pound of cheddar cheese, cubed
1/4 cup horseradish
2 tablespoons diced red onion
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon salt
I did this recipe in my vitamix blender. I think that if you shred the cheese really fine, and made sure that the cream cheese is warm that you can mix this up in a regular blender.
Spinach Artichoke Dip
I made it in my Vitamix blender but you could easily mix this in a regular blender.
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1 slice lemon, peeled, seeded
1 (10 ounce) package frozen spinach, thawed and drained
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground pepper
1 garlic clove, peeled (if using a regular blender I would crush it)
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup canned artichoke hearts, drained
Preheat oven to 350 degree Fahrenheit.
Place all ingredients into blender except artichoke hearts. Blend until slightly smooth but still chunky, add artichokes and blend a little bit more. Pour into dish and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until bubbly.
I apologize that I did not photograph the artichoke dip. Here is the link to where I have made it before which contains a picture. Spinach Artichoke Dip
