Foodie Friday: Jen's best dip

My best friend Jen (also known as Blonde Jen if you ever hear me talking about her) is one of the most sincere and talented people I have ever met. She's amazing at everything she does, on top of willingness to cook me fantastic meals. Since we're 800 miles apart right now, I especially like to make this snack when she can't be here to share it with me.

With that said, I would LOVE to share with you the most amazing dip to grace these lips! It's super easy to make and good for a movie night with your best friend and an even bigger hit at a party!

We like to make this dish vegan, but you could easily replace the tofutti with real cream cheese and veggie protein meat crumbles with ground meat! Even if you don't have seasonings to add to this dish, you can grab some taco seasoning that's lying around the house!

You will need:

1 cup of veggie meat crumbles (we used smart ground)
1 tub of cream cheese (we used tofutti cream cheese)
1/2 cup salsa
chili powder to taste

This recipe should be doubled if you are serving more than two people.

1. In a saucepan, add half of the tub of Tofutti cream cheese and turn on heat to medium high.

2. Stir in cup of meat crumbles and half cup of salsa (you can obviously use more or less to your preference).

3. Add chili powder and any other seasonings you'd like to taste. Stir in some cayenne pepper if you are feeling spicy.



  1. tempted to go to the store right now to make this! it looks delicious.

  2. you should! its pretty cheap and so incredibly delicious!

  3. mmmmmm-mmmmm good! Thnx for the recipe yo!
