PRETTIEST Cheese Dip ever! MEXICAN Vegetable Bowl MONTEREY JACK Cheese Dip! This easy dip recipe is made with grated Monterey Jack cheese and Mexican spices! Cover the top with chopped up vegetables to make the most beautiful homemade dip!
Cheese lovers, this dip is calling your name! This Vegetable Bowl Monterey Jack Cheese Dip is made with Monterey Jack cheese, which is perfect for 2 reasons. First, Monterey Jack cheese melts beautifully, it’s one of the best melting cheeses in my opinion, so it makes a perfect cheese for dip. Secondly, when you add a little seasoning and spice, it’s a great cheese to use for Mexican inspired dishes, like this cheese dip!
I got to thinking about what makes the perfect dip. It needs to be cheesy, creamy and full of flavor. But it also needs to have perfect partners in crime, in this case Mission Organics® Blue Corn Tortilla Chips and vegetables! Instead of putting the vegetables on the side, I decided to include them in the dip to make a Vegetable Bowl Cheese Dip!
Not only is this cheese dip seasoned with Mexican spices, but it has crunchy vegetables on top! That means you can grab a tortilla chip and not only dip for cheese, but also dip for vegetables at the same time!
I like to use cherry tomatoes (chopped in half), green peppers (skinny slices) and colorful carrots (peeled and sliced thin) to make this a vibrant rainbow cheese dip! So often cheese dips are boring orange, but this dip really shines on the table! With all the fresh vegetables, it’s quite the beauty!
Now dip, dip, dip your cheese loving heart out! We’re obsessed with Mission Organics Blue Corn Tortilla Chips that have the perfect touch of sea salt to them! They have a bold corn flavor, but are made with simple ingredients and don’t include any artificial preservatives, flavors or colors. The chips are also USDA organic certified, non-GMO project verified, and certified gluten-free! With an authentic heritage and just a few, wholesome ingredients, Mission Organics Tortilla Chips are crafted with the same care and quality that this homemade cheese dip is made with!
Here’s a Mission Organics store locator to find them (look in the chips aisle!), seriously you must try them, they are one of our favorite tortilla chips. Plus they hold up really well with this luxurious cheese dip! You can also find Mission Organics® Flour Tortillas, which are perfect for your full Mexican fiesta!
