My best friend's dip

Tomorrow is the first annual QA Chili Cook-Off at ZeniMax Online Studios. While I am confident my chili will take first prize, I'm not above stacking the deck a little and bringing along my friend Roz's famous salsa dip. She makes this dip every time we come over to watch the Ravens play. We have an unspoken agreement that we won't come over unless there's dip.

This recipe is an approximation of her recipe. I've seen her make it countless times but for some reason, hers is always better.

Roz's Salsa Dip


  • 8 oz. package of cream cheese
  • 1 tbsp chopped pickled jalapenos
  • 1 tsp pickled jalapeno juice
  • 3 tbsp salsa
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


Soften the cream cheese on the counter for 10 minutes. Dump all the ingredients except for the shredded cheese in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Add the cheese and stir together. Chill for half an hour before serving.
