When I go to Puerto Rico, I go for two reasons, family and food. I visit family, and I eat my way through Puerto Rico. It’s awful. But, I have been told that any food consumed while on vacation is calorie free. Don’t tell me it’s not true! I don’t want to hear it.
Normally when I go Puerto Rico to eat…er, visit. I focus on the classics, alcapurria, pernil, mofongo and food like that. But, while I was visiting I came across a dip that flipped my lid.
Cream cheese and guava have always been a classic pairing. I’ve been enjoying cream cheese and guava for as long as I can remember. For a long time, I thought the best way to enjoy cream cheese and guava was in a quesito. And, it still is, but I was introduced to some serious competition.
In Guaynabo, there is a gourmet market called La Hacienda. And they sell a guava, honey and cream cheese dip, and it’s amazing. My mom bought some for Christmas Eve and I pretty much parked myself right next to it.
I knew that I had to recreate the dip and share it with the world! I read through the ingredient list and tasted it over and over trying to imprint it in my brain. Today I share with you the dip that will blow your mind. BLOW-YOUR-MIND! It’s creamy, sweet a little savory and freaking amazing! Have I mentioned how amazing this dip is?!
I love this dip because it taste like heaven, and it’s ridiculously easy to make. The official annual dip day is right around the corner people! If you don’t know what I mean, I am talking about the Super Bowl. It’s America’s official dip day, and this is the dip that will make you the Super Bowl king/queen! GET IT!
