QUESO DIP WITH PICO DE GALLO

Deflate-gate, the unexpected and sudden loss of a beloved member of our food community and the snowpocalypse that wasn’t (at least in New York) – it’s not a stretch to say that it’s been a roller-coaster couple of weeks.

I have decided that I am a chip and dip girl . . . don’t get me wrong, I appreciate a great cookie or a killer piece of chocolate but if those were on the table with potato chips and dip? I’m all about the dip, baby!
