Elementary school PTA organizations are amazing; they draw together productive and generous volunteers who organize incredible events for the community. In Sept 2001, the first year of our total of ten years elementary school experience, the Walter Hays PTA hosted an amazing auction and sold a cookbook called "Party Flavors". Enthusiastically, I purchased many of these cookbooks and gifted them to friends and family.
One of my favorite recipes from that community cookbook that I still love to make today is this Dip with a Zip. Not only is it simple to make, but you also can tailor it to how "zippy" you want it to be. Every time I serve it, I am asked for the recipe!
Dip with a Zip
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon curry powder or more to taste
1 tablespoon ketchup
dash of salt
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1/8 teaspoon cayenne
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire
1 clove garlic, minced
Stir together all ingredients until well blended. The amount of curry you add will determine how much "zip" is in this dip. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or up to a day. Stir before serving. I often double the recipe because it is that good!
