Every once in a while we make a dish that makes us so surprised that we did not make it sooner. Usually these recipes are incredibly simple and include ingredients that we tend to have on hand. When we made this Chile relleno dip, we definitely were shocked that we hadn’t made it before. With just a quick browse of our pantry and a delicious and simple stove top sauce, this fun dip was ready in no time. After we tried this tasty dip, we knew it would be something we should make again for a gathering. Once we had a few bites, we were planning the next time that we could make and devour this delicious bean dip all over again.
With the most creamy cheese topping, a layer of rich beans and spicy chiles, this chile relleno dip is so deliciously addicting. After we made it, we could not get enough of it! I even snuck a few bites while photographing it, because I just could not wait! If you make this cheesy recipe, you will know exactly why it is so hard to wait to eat it!
This recipe is part of our football game food posts. Each week, we choose two teams and create a dish that represents the team in some way. This week, we chose the Arizona Cardinals and the Seattle Seahawks. For the Seahawks, we discovered that people in Seattle take pretzels very seriously! After we found out that awesome fact, we had to make incredible pretzel bites to represent the Seahawks. When we researched what to make for the Cardinals, we unfortunately hit a few road blocks.
Given that I have visited Arizona several times when my grandmother lived there, I was able to draw some ideas from my experiences. Whenever we ate out in Arizona, I remember having really delicious and authentic Mexican food. Even though Mexican food in California is great, the Mexican food I enjoyed in Arizona had a really unique and awesome taste. One fantastic meal I recall having in Arizona, was the best chile relleno I have ever tasted. Drawing from that incredible meal, I decided to give it a game food spin and turn it into an amazing dip. After we wiped the skillet clean, we can declare that this dip is completely addicting and wonderfully good!
We hope you try this amazing chile relleno dip during your next game day gathering. If you do, make sure to make enough for everyone. Every cheesy and perfect bite will definitely disappear before your eyes!
