Notes

  1. Always buy cheddar block and grate it fresh just before using it in the recipe. It tastes so much better than pre-grated cheese bought from store.
  2. Highly recommend to use onion powder and garlic powder. It adds flavor to the dip.
  3. Use any type of hot sauce depending on what you have in hand. Classic hot sauce, Tabasco sauce or sriracha sauce can be used.
  4. Use light sour cream for lighter version of dip or replace sour cream with yogurt.
