    Yum! Totally trying this! What do you like to dip into it? I think those are pita chips or crackers I see…

    • Ashley, those were a Sweet Onion chip that I found recently. You can use pita chips or corn chips. I like dipping cucumber, bell pepper and jicama slices in it. I also use it on my sandwich in place of mayo. Thanks for responding. Let me know what you think of it!
