This Creamy Three Cheese Kale Dip is an ooey gooey hot appetizer bursting with rich flavor perfect for your next party.
I am at the time of year when I need to get creative with kale since we are getting it every week in our CSA basket. And, if I am being honest, I am not a big green smoothie fan. There I said! Judge me if you will.
Don't let the length of the ingredient list intimidate you. You probably have most if not all of the ingredients in your kitchen, and the recipe itself is so simple.
This is a thick dip so you need something hearty to stand up to it. I devoured it with some red quinoa chips, but you could also use tortilla chips, pita chips, baguette slices, etc. Save your dainty "lady chips" for another occasion.
