Mary Anne's Zesty Dill Pickle Dip

      For those of us who love dill pickles, this dip really is a hit! As with most dips, this one is best made the night before and refrigerated.

      1 package Original Ranch Dressing mix (dry), not buttermilk

      1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

      8 ounces sour cream, reduced fat or regular

      1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

      1-2 cloves garlic, minced

      3-4 zesty or regular dill pickle spears

      A few sliced jar jalapenos, optional, for a little "kick"

      Fritos, for dipping

      • Place all ingredients, except pickles, in a food processor and blend until smooth. Add pickles, one at a time, until desired consistency/ flavor is obtained. It's best served with Fritos. Be careful....very addictive!

      Note: Add sliced jalapenos to taste to "heat" up the dip. Also, I dried off the zesty dill pickle spears with a paper towel before I added them to the dip. I have also added a teaspoon or two of Wickles relish (you can find it at Reasor's and other area supermarkets) for a tasty change-of-pace!
