Sriracha Tomato and Onion Dip

Sriracha Tomato and Onion Dip recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen
Spicy sriracha sauce and red chile flavor this dip and provide an excellent level of heat that is cooled just slightly by the sour cream. This was an instant hit with my husband and oldest son.  It is a much hotter flavor than I am normally drawn to, however, I found myself repeatedly going back to the table for more.

Today is the reveal day for this month’s Secret Recipe Club. My assigned blog this month was BetsyLife. I had a great time browsing her posts and checking out her fantastic art work. You can see her artwork online at Betsy Haley. I have fallen in love with a couple of her pieces. Thanks for the recipe, Betsy and thanks for the fantastic art to drool over as well!

Sriracha Tomato and Onion Dip
recipe adapted from Betsy Life

8 ounces sour cream (or cream cheese, if you prefer that over sour cream)
1/2 large tomato, diced – 1 heaping 1/2 cup diced tomatoes
1/3 medium onion, finely diced – 1/3 cup minced onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon Sriracha,or the hot sauce of your choice
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
1 teaspoon chile powder, I used NM red chile powder
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, adjust to taste

Whisk together the sour cream, garlic, hot sauce and spices. Add the diced tomatoes and onions and stir to combine. Serve with tortilla chips. Enjoy!

  6. What is it about spicy dips that is so addicting? I kind of stand over them and shovel---it's embarrassing when you're in polite company!
    I love the pinkish tone to this one.
