I am so behind in posting (like usual) which means a bunch of the posts that I am writing now are never going to be read (they will get buried behind newer posts). And that's a real shame, because Becker sour cream dip (p. 72) is easily one of the best dips I've ever eaten.
My mom had bought chips but no dip. I am apathetic about chips but I LOVE dip, so I decided to whip up my own. I mixed sour cream, soy sauce, black pepper, garlic, and salt.
The dip is very, very heavily peppered, which I loved. Two teaspoons of pepper for two cups of sour cream is a huge amount. And I may have added twice as much garlic as requested (which I almost always do) so it was nice and garlicky. I could not stop eating this dip.
My TJOC mantra is that I only make things from scratch if they are markedly better or cheaper than what I can buy in the store. Red onion dip, for example, failed that test. Becker sour cream dip passes with flying colors--it is soooo much better than anything I've ever bought.
Has anyone else made this? I would love to know what you thought.
**I have made it twice since the original time--it's a dangerous dip. Don't make it if you don't want to eat it all in a day or two**
