Trader Joe’s Tuesday: Chunky Artichoke & Jalapeno Dip

Trader Joe’s Chunky Artichoke & Jalapeño Dip

Tastes Like:
  It’s not as spicy as you would imagine!  But it is EVERY bit as chunky as the name suggests.  It’s not so much a “dip” as it is a “scoop” or maybe even a “spread” – use a fancy little butter or cheese knife to put it on bread or crackers.  I’ll admit I haven’t been around the block much on artichoke dips in general, but this tasted a lot like artichoke, very creamy, and with a VERY subtle kick from the jalapeño.

Great With:  Very hearty, sturdy chips or rice crackers – not gonna lie, it takes a little practice to actually operate this dip.  You can’t really “dip,” you need to “scoop.”

Perfect For:  Semi-homemade crostini appetizers – because of the texture, it might be easier to dish this out in advance as opposed to having people try to dip it on their own. 

Must Know:  Not vegan, not labelled anything else.

$3.69, making it a little more pricey than typical TJ fare, but it’s SO rich and SO thick, that a little bit really does go a long way.
