Dill Pickle Dip

I'm a member of the Secret Recipe Club.  We're a bunch of bloggers who are assigned a blog every month to make a recipe from and blog about it.  We're not allowed to tell anyone until our 'reveal day' which for our group, is the first Monday of the month.   


I was all set.  I'd researched and read and bookmarked some recipes and was all set to make my final choice, well, I still made it, but...
I then went back to my assigned blog, Making Memories with your kids  and found this recipe that Erin posted and it bumped out the other recipe, just sat there and smacked it right out of the running.
So...
I made two recipes this month.  I'll tell you about the second one in a different post, later on.
Well, gotta keep the new recipes coming up on the blog, somehow.
But first off...
I made the Dill Pickle Dip.



And it was a hit.
A big hit.
I'm going to keep this in my regular rotation.  Although I have to admit I only made a half recipe.
All I had in the fridge was a scant half cup of sour cream.  I've since bought more. 

Recipe:  Dill Pickle Dip

1 cup Sour Cream
8 oz. Cream Cheese, softened
1 Tablespoon Garlic Powder
1 Tablespoon Dill
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
1 cup diced Dill Pickles.
1/4 cup pickle juice

Mix the Sour Cream, Cream Cheese, garlic, dill and Worcestershire Sauce together.
Then add the diced Dill Pickles.  Mix together and add the pickle juice at the end.  You can use all of it, or part, depending on how thick you want the dip to be.
Put in the fridge for an hour or so, let the flavors get acquainted.   Serve with chips, or crackers or ?
I noticed that the ladies the other night were dipping crackers into the dip, and then going back again and again.  (but no one double dipped, at least that I saw).
It was that good.

Erin did have several more recipes that I've bookmarked for the future.  Here are just a couple of the recipes I've got bookmarked.  
 Sweet Bacon Wrapped Tator Tots 
Pepperoni Pizza Puffs
and
Muffin Tin Potato Gratin

And Erin also made my Nanaimo Bars for a recent Secret Recipe Club  Holiday Treats reveal.   She actually knew what they were, and not only knew about them, but used to eat them when she lived just south of where I grew up.  

 Which reminds me, it's time to make some again.

    1. I'd had it before, but had never thought I could make it, but now that I do know how to make it, well, gee, I can make it again and again. Best of all, no mystery ingredients.
      So glad you got my blog as well, and the Sunday Gravy is soo good, worth the time to make it.

  4. Oh my, yes! I can see exactly why this recipe knocked any other recipe out of the running. This sounds absolutely amazing.

    Also, I love that phrase - let the flavors get acquainted - that's so perfectly right. :)

    1. Well, anytime you introduce a bunch of different flavors, you should step aside and let them get to know each other.
      And this dip, totally awesome.

    1. I've had it before, but it always tastes a little funky, but was really good. And... I know what is in it.

  8. That sounds amazing. If you can't get dill pickle chips, make dill pickle dip. I'm thinking this is going to show up on our Superbowl buffet!

    1. I wonder how the dill pickle chips would go with the dip? Just thinking out loud here. I'm planning on making this for a weekend party, it was that good.
