Almonds Dip
subtle and spicy

The dips tend to be soft mixtures but when it comes to Mexican dips the rules change because the strong and spicy flavor of the chili appears. Although this dip has spicy notes it also makes a good job in maintaining the almonds’ subtle flavor, which is wrapped in the creaminess of the cream cheese.

In the almonds dip you will also find freshness but what differentiates it from all the other dips is its pleasant grainy texture that delights all the palates. When you are about to enjoy the dip put many snacks and appetizers around because you never know which new and delicious combinations can be discovered.
