My Mum's Sweet Chilli Dip recipe is fresh and easy and has been a family favourite for years. Enjoy!
125g light cream cheese, softened
300g carton sour cream (full fat, not light*)
1 glove garlic, crushed
1/4 cup sweet chilli sauce
1/4 cup chopped fresh coriander
Fresh coriander to garnish
Beat the cream cheese and sour cream in a small bowl with an electric mixer until smooth. Stir in garlic, sweet chilli sauce and coriander and mix well. Cover and refrigerate at least 30 minutes before serving. Serve dip garnished with fresh herbs.
*Why don't I use light sour cream? The consistency of light sour cream is "thinner" and will result in a floppy dip. No one wants a floppy dip. Besides, there's nothing wrong with full fat dairy! It won't make you fat. If you want to make this recipe more diet-friendly, there are a couple of sugar-reduced sweet chilli sauces on the supermarket shelves now, or make your own!
