Hot Mango Chutney Dip for Recipe Friday
Last Saturday, on my last day in Austin, my Aunt Norma made a delicious dip to go with crackers as part of our lunch. I was a bit puzzled when she started making it, and then when my cousin arrived with the last two ingredients and announced what they were I was skeptical. But one bite on a sweet potato chip (which I didn’t care much for plain) and I was hooked. I threatened to keep it all for myself, it was so good.
So I decided to share the recipe for Recipe Friday this week. I wish I had taken a picture, but I didn’t think of it. I’ll just have to share this picture of my dear Aunt Norma instead.
Hot Mango Chutney Dip
1 – 8 oz package cream cheese, softened
1 bottle of HOT Mango Chutney Sauce
1 cup cocktail peanuts
3 to 4 stalks of chopped green onions
Crackers for dipping (recipe suggests Wheat Thins)
Spread cream cheese in a thin layer on a flat dinner sized plate or cake plate. Spread bottle of Chutney Sauce over cream cheese. Coarsely chop peanuts and spread on top of sauce. Spread chopped onion on top, and it’s ready to serve.
(From my Aunt’s recipe card): Note: Must use HOT Mango Chutney Sauce – hard to find, ask for it. Usually in relish-sauce section of store. Expensive but so simple. Enjoy!
I can almost taste it Linda! I love onions, I love mango, I love peanuts — so there’s no reason that I won’t love this one! So many mangoes in here 😉
Rea, It’s good to see you! I’ve been away a bit and so busy, I’ve missed seeing some of my blog friends here and at their blogs. I need to get over your way and see what you’ve been up to. 😉 Hope you can find the hot chutney dip where you are, but I bet you are creative enough to imrovise if you can’t. Peace, Linda
I can so see this happening! :-). ( I’m not so brave … not sure I could handle the heat 🙂 )
Ann, It actually isn’t that hot because the cream cheese balances out the chutney sauce. Which is I think why you need hot chutney sauce. 😉 Be brave! You won’t be disappointed. Peace, Linda
You came back with a recipe! Why am I not surprised??? 🙂 Thank you sooo much. I’ll start looking for the sauce now. And there was something so sweet about that picture of your Aunt in place of the food . . .loved it!
God bless you and thank you for sharing!!
Deb, I think I might have to take this to the next party I go to! I’m afraid to make it at home because I’d eat too much! 😉 I also came back with some recipe ideas, but the first one I tried didn’t turn out quite like I expected so I need to experiment a bit. Maybe it will be next week’s recipe. Hope you enjoy this one. Peace, Linda
This sounds fantastic and really versatile.
Rufus, Thanks for stopping by and commenting. This is a really easy recipe and I just couldn’t believe how delicious and addicting it was! Peace, Linda
