This zesty dip will be a favorite! Tortilla chips are the “dippers” of choice at my house, but bread chunks or breadsticks also work well. We didn’t like crackers with it as well as the chips. It would probably be good with carrot or celery sticks also. For a party, you could use it in a bread bowl, with the bread chunks as dippers. Use your imagination!
