Rated 4 out of 5 by from I added a splash of half and half to make it a little creamier like another reviewer suggested. I added a splash of half and half to make it a little creamier like another reviewer suggested. I would definitely add more next time, this dip is very thick. I used chedder on top as I only had 8 oz cheese. The dip is so rich I think I will leave the top layer of cheese off next time. I also added 1/2 tsp paprika and old bay. It definitely needed the extra spice. Very good dip, did not last long at Christmas party!
