Chipotle Lentil Dip recipe that’s smoky and full of flavor. Use it to dip chips, crackers or vegetables in! Or use it as a spread on a sandwich! Either way, you can’t go wrong!
Do you snack when you get home from work (or school)? Or do you have the willpower to wait until dinner? I often get scolded because even if dinner is only 30 minutes away, I usually spoil my appetite just a touch with a snack. Usually it’s a piece of string cheese, a big handful of almonds, a banana or crackers. One of my favorite snacks is candied jalapenos on a small slice of cheddar on top of a cracker, but sadly I’m all out of candied jalapenos (weep, weep). So while I was looking for something to become best friends with my beloved salted crackers I came up with this simple Chipotle Lentil Dip.
This is a type of dip that keeps giving. You get one taste in your first bite but then it develops into a new taste as you continue. First you’ll taste the smokiness, then a slight sweetness and finally a hint of heat due to those chipotle peppers. Some people fear spicy foods so this isn’t a heat overload. It’s not going to burn your mouth, or even make you wince. It’s a good middle in the road dip that spicy food lovers and haters can both enjoy. But if you are a heat seeker, add in 2 chipotle peppers and you’ll get double the kick. With some major football games coming up be sure you make enough if you have guests coming over or are going to a friends house. This dip is completely veggie friendly and is a good alternative to snack on instead of those greasy finger goods we all eat while watching the big games.
