Don’t you just love getting together to celebrate with co-workers? Sometimes, I just get so excited that I have to concoct a new recipe! This week we celebrated the years of service of my good friend, Denise. She always loves my spinach dip, but I also wanted to create something that nobody had tasted before. This dip is one of a kind, just like Denise.
If you want a slightly sweet, tingly hot, curry spiced condiment, this is what you are looking for. I used Cherry Pomegranate Habanero Sauce from Robert Rothschild Farm. It is a blend of fruit, vegetables and spices that can add a touch of sweet with a zing of heat to any dish. Their website lists these ingredients for the sauce: Sugar, Cherries, Raspberries, Mangos, Lemon Juice (from Concentrate), Cider Vinegar, Yellow Pepper, Pomegranate Juice (from Concentrate), Water, Red Bell Peppers, Onions, Habanero Peppers, Pomegranate Flavor, Xanthan Gum. I like processed food that actually uses food instead of a bunch of chemicals. All of these ingredients would fit in with what I have in my kitchen. There’s nothing strange in this bottle of Cherry Pomegranate Habanero Sauce.
Here is an easy recipe for a dip that is made in the food processor. Below the recipe are ways to use the dip as part of a sandwich meal. Of course, you can always chow down on it with corn chips, too!
Sweet Hot Curry Dip Recipe
2-8 ounce cartons of cream cheese, softened
2 teaspoons of pickled ginger
¾ cup Cherry Pomegranate Habanero Sauce (I got mine at Costco. It is also available online.)
2 teaspoons Sriracha hot sauce
2 teaspoons curry powder (Use your favorite.)
2 teaspoons Old Bay seasoning
1-2 teaspoons of vinegar from pickled jalapenos
1 teaspoon Alessi Pear Infused Balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon dried mint (optional)
In the large bowl of a food processor with a chopping blade, blend the cream cheese and pickled ginger together. Add all of the other ingredients and process in short bursts until it is thoroughly combined. Stop processing occasionally and scrape down the sides. Refrigerate in a covered container. This should keep for about three days.
Sweet Hot Curry Turkey Pinwheels
Use a fresh flour tortilla and cover it with Sweet Hot Curry Dip. Cover the curry dip with wafer thin sliced smoked turkey. Leave about ¼ inch uncovered by turkey around the edges. This will help you seal the roll closed. Roll the tortilla up like a burrito. Cover the roll with plastic wrap or aluminum foil. Refrigerate overnight. To serve, take the covering off of the roll and slice it across the roll to make pinwheels.
