I love dips. They're such a delicious, crowd-pleasing in-between dish somewhere between a snack and a meal. Truly, I could eat most dips as my entire meal, and if you're reading this...I bet you feel the same!
It's definitely time to expand the dip section of my site. The keto cheesy chorizo dip I made a few years ago is still amazing, but there are so many other flavors left to explore! And I'm excited to take on the challenge.
And if you wanted to go even easier, and still low carb, feel free to grab a few cans of chili without beans from your local grocery store and mix it with the cheese. There's no shame in that time-saving method!
