Mexican Pepper Dip

Today was Happy Hour Taco Thursday at my house. Yesterday I had gone shopping with a friend to go take some pictures for a new website I am working on called Eat Drink Tampa, my foodie adventures. I really hadn’t planned to start a new website but with my recent move to Florida and learning my way around a new area it just makes sense. I love living near a major city, there is always something to do and if I get bored here I have no one to blame but myself. About a month ago I discovered this wonderful Mexican Market in Bradenton, FL. Yesterday I went back to get new pictures and enjoyed a little shopping while I was there. It is not only a grocery store but a Mexican bakery also. I came home with pork carne asada ready to go on the grill for some real tasty tacos that my friends and I enjoyed tonight, beef carne asada, homemade flour and corn tortillas, Mexican crema and Cojita cheese, oh and Mexican chocolate! On the way home I said okay we are doing Happy Hour tomorrow and I decided our appetizer was going to be this delicious dip made with 3 kinds of peppers!

Pork Carne Asada from That's My Home

This was a seasoned pork carne asada mixture the grocery store meat counter sells. I cooked it on the grill and added poblano peppers, red pepper, onions and jalapeno peppers with a touch of cumin. My friends husband made pinto beans and she made guacamole. I also served a spicy corn dish that tasted like Mexican street corn that I will share the recipe for soon. It is sure to become a new family favorite recipe, it was a hit here.

    Your dip looks and sounds like a baked version of queso, our favorite! I will make this for a little spark for the 4th of July! Thanks! visiting from Memories

      Despite all of the peppers, this dip is not hot. The chili peppers are mild. if you want some heat leave in the seeds of the jalapeno. hope you like it as much as we did.
