I'd hardly consider this a recipe, it's so simple and easy. But, it's one of my favorite dips, especially for sweet potato wedges or chips. - fiveandspice —fiveandspice

Test Kitchen Notes

Sour cream and onion watch out! There is a new kid in town! This recipe was a breeze to put together and it tasted amazing. We had it with some kettle cooked potato chips but it works great as a veggie dip too. Simple and great recipe! —adamnsvetcooking

Review
I like to say I'm a lazy iron chef (I just cook with what I have around), renegade nutritionist, food policy wonk, and inveterate butter and cream enthusiast! My husband and I own a craft distillery in Northern Minnesota called Vikre Distillery (www.vikredistillery.com), where I claimed the title, "arbiter of taste." I also have a doctorate in food policy, for which I studied the changes in diet and health of new immigrants after they come to the United States. I myself am a Norwegian-American dual citizen. So I have a lot of Scandinavian pride, which especially shines through in my cooking on special holidays. Beyond loving all facets of food, I'm a Renaissance woman (translation: bad at focusing), dabbling in a variety of artistic and scientific endeavors.
