I recommend serving your cream cheese dip in a serving bowl, cooled. It's perfect for Cinco de Mayo, your next BBQ, tailgating or garden party!
I think granite slates cook great, so I place the cream cheese in the center and arrange some dipper around the dip.
We love nachos and ritz crackers as dippers. Italian grissini also make great dippers!
Another great use for this dip is to turn it into a spread. It goes really well with bagels and lox.
Keep leftovers in an airtight container and store in the fridge for up to 3 days.
