Superbowl is in a couple of days; as usual all I am looking forward to is the commercials, the food, and of course half time. So it only makes sense for me to post a dip recipe for you to make and enjoy. Yes, it is true that this recipe is very similar to our very own Mast-o-Khiar.  But let me give you a quick background about where the inspiration for this dip came from. Last year when the Sous Chef and I visited Belize, we spend two incredible nights at Pook’s Hills Lodge. Each night the guests gathered in the main cabana for some pre-dinner socializing and Happy Hour. As we chatted and made drinks in the self-service bar, we were served dip and chips for appetizers. One of the nights we were treated to a delicious cucumber dip served with corn chips.

The delicious and refreshing dip tasted fantastic paired with Belizean Rum and Coke! When we came back from our trip I started experimenting with the dip. This is confession time. Are you ready? I have admitted here before that I have a deep love for dips. But really, what I really have is a very strong love, actually a weakness, for potato chips. This Cucumber Dip has become my go to and I can’t get enough of it. It is super simple to make and you can pair it with tortilla, corn, pita, or potato chips. I have found that my favorite of all for this dip is potato chips.
