I love that garlicy, slightly spicy white sauce my fav Mexican Restaurant serves alongside their salsa and chips! It is addicting! I wanted to recreate it at home so I could use it on everything! So I found some recipes online (no easy feat) and smushed them all together till I got what I thought tasted perfect!
This is not a cheese dip, I repeat this is not a cheese dip. If you are looking for the cheese dip Mexican restaurants serve this is not it.
This is a recipe for that garlicy white dip Mexican restaurants serve with their chips and salsa and it is amazing on everything (we call it El Rodeo dip around here). I put it on my tacos, I dip my fries in it, I eat it with chips, I drizzle it on nachos, it is AMAZING!!
I loved this dip from my local Mexican restaurant and would actually even buy an extra cup of it to take home because it is just that good. However, there are times when I want this dip and I just don’t feel like going to a restaurant to get it so I figured there has got to be a way to make it at home. So to the internet I went and it took a looooooot of searching, apparently this fabulous dip isn’t served at all restaurants so getting a recipe for it was a little difficult and I found a few and decided to take the basics of all the recipes and mix them together and add a few things until I got the dip spot on!
It is perfect, tastes just like it. Soo many copycat recipes out there come close to what they are trying to mimic but are never quite there and still leave you craving the original but this recipe tastes 100% exactly how it is supposed to.
Now some of the ingredients might make you raise your eyebrow but trust me after you mix all this stuff together and let it sit overnight it is knock your socks off awesome!
You do have to let this sit in the fridge at least 24 hours, that is how long it takes for the magic to work.
So please trust me and make this sauce, even if it sounds weird just do it, just make it. You will be amazed at how wonderful it is and you will soon be slathering it on everything!!
