This is the BEST smoked gouda dip! Spicy, smoky, and just like the version from Whole Foods. And you won’t believe how easy it is to make. Serve with crackers or air fryer pita chips. Try my lemon feta dip or smoked salmon dip for another great dip option.
I recently heard a statistic that Americans eat, on average, 23 pounds of cheese per year. I’m taking full responsibility for the high side of that average.
And really, spicy smoked gouda dip should take a lot of the responsibility too.
I’m not proud that I eat a TON of cheese, but I just can’t quit cheese. Or dairy for that matter. You can take the girl out of Wisconsin but you just can’t take Wisconsin out of the girl.
SO THERE! #cheeseislife
And to put fuel on my I-eat-too-much-cheese fire, there are very few cheeses that I don’t love. Smoked gouda is one of them. It’s not that I dislike it, but I don’t love it. (And why eat a cheese you don’t love?)
What I do love? The spicy smoked gouda dip from Whole Foods Market. Which is made with smoked gouda…go figure. It also costs like, $1 million/pound.
So I had to recreate this smoked gouda dip at home.
It’s reminiscent of pimento cheese, at least in its preparation but tastes smoky, spicy and cheesy. Obviously. (?!) We managed to eat the entire batch with crackers, but oh my would this be amazing in a grilled cheese.
It’s also the perfect football food…just in case you’re watching any these days. (I suppose this cheese-fueled post is a good time to officially deem myself a Packers fan. :))
