Our Habanero dip isn’t for the faint of heart! If you’re on the hunt for a dip with some serious bite, you’ll hit the jackpot with this recipe. To make this dish, you’ll need black-eyed peas (or black beans), olive oil, fresh lime juice, cumin, Cabot Hot Habanero Cheddar or Cabot Chipotle Cheddar, and plenty of salt. Add your beans, oil, lime, and cumin into a bowl and start mashing away. Mash all of the ingredients until they’re coarse. Keep in mind that you want to enjoy the full texture of the beans when you eat the dip, so you don’t want the mixture to be too smooth. Once you’ve mashed the beans, toss in the cheese and salt. If you’d like to keep with a Latin theme, you can serve the dip inside hallowed-out pepper shells. We recommend serving the dip with flatbread, crackers or tortilla chips.
