Asian Inspired Cream Cheese Dip


Sue and I are a little late with our annual Chinese New Year dinner this year as we had to wait for the weekend to celebrate. We went a little over board with food.... again....
I'm not complaining though. 
I thought I would share this super easy and tasty dip recipe because I just know you are going to want to whip this up for your next get-together.
The flavors are really different than the usual dip and go well with rice crackers or veggies. This literally takes 5 minutes to whip up and then the longer it sits the better the flavor gets.


Asian Inspired Cream Cheese Dip

Ingredients
1 (8 oz) pkg Philadelphia Light Cream Cheese, room temp
1/4 cup light mayo
1/4 cup 0 fat, plain Greek yogurt
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp rice vinegar
generous pinch salt
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1 Tbsp sweet chili sauce
1 tsp wasabi flavored horseradish
1 green onion, chopped

Toppings
1 green onion, diced fine
3 Tbsp wasabi peas, chopped

Directions
In a blender (or food processor) process cream cheese until smooth, scraping sides as needed. Add in remaining ingredients (not including toppings) and process until smooth, again, scraping sides as needed.
Scrape into a serving bowl and chill until ready to serve.
Sprinkle the toppings on just before serving.


*Boom* Done.
Just. Like. That.


Perfect for your next Chinese dinner or even game night, ladies night, football season, pretty much any time you're going to have people over. 
Just sayin'


It really doesn't get too much easier than this.
