When you believe the best finish to any dip is a fiery kick, this is the dazzling solution that goes a step beyond hot sauce, chili peppers, and even dried spices.

Why Your Dip Deserves This Upgrade

Go off-course to punch up your party dip with a swirl of funky, spicy kimchi. It’s the one-ingredient upgrade that will bring big flavor and texture to any dip. The mild flavor of bean dip, the coolness of yogurt, or the richness of cheese dip are just the right balance for this fiery fermented mix-in.

How to Make It

Start with about 2 cups of bean, cheese, or yogurt dip (homemade or store-bought) and stir in about 1/4 cup of chopped kimchi. Double (or triple) as necessary, and store in a covered container in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve.

With the help of just a few staple ingredients you probably have on hand already, you can turn a batch of homemade or store-bought dip into an impressive appetizer loaded with more texture and big flavor. This series gives you the inspiration to turn a basic bean, cheese, or yogurt dip into the MVP of the Super Bowl spread.
