A fab, quick and tasty cheese dip which is easily converted to accommodate the usual ingredients in your fridge and pantry


  • 1 x tub of Philly Cream Cheese (lite or standard)

  • 125 grams x Tasty Grated Cheese

  • Fresh grated Parmesan Cheese (added to taste)

  • Tablespoon x Sour Cream (lite or standard)

  • 2 x tablespoons of Sweet Chilli Sauce (with seeds preferably)

  • Dash of Hot Chilli Sauce (added to taste)

  • 3 x Shallots chopped fine (green and white parts of shallot)

  • 1 x teaspoon Curry Powder

  • Fresh ground Cracked Black Pepper (added to taste)

  • 2 x tablespoons of Sweet Mustard Pickles OR Tomato Chutney or whatever similar condiments you prefer

  • Half teaspoon x Sweet or Plain Paprika

  • Half teaspoon x Cumin powder

  • Optional "ALOHA" extra recommended: 2 x tablespoons crushed Tinned Pineapple, drained - add this if you would like a sweeter chunkier dip but it is just lovely


  • 1.

    Allow the cream cheese to sit at room temperature unwrapped for at least 10-15 mins to assist with blending with other ingredients.

  • 2.

    Then place the cream cheese in a large mixing bowl and then blend with a fork together with the grated cheese, sour cream and parmesan to taste.

  • 3.

    Mix the powdered and dry ingredients in with the sweet chilli sauce and then add both the chilli sauces followed by the pickles/chutney and blend all very well with a fork or spoon.

  • 4.

    Add the shallots and pineapple last and blend well, retaining some of the shallots for decorative purposes.

  • 5.

    Tip into a serving bowl of your choice and drizzle with a little sweet chilli sauce along with the remaining shallots.

  • 6.

    Chill for at least 30 minutes before serving however it is much tastier again if made the day before use.

  • 7.

    Best accompaniments for the flavours in the dip are plain white corn chips, sliced vegetables, plain or cracked pepper water crackers.

Whilst this recipe "as is" is a fab taste you can chop, change, add and reduce any ingredients to your own taste as some may like much more or less chilli and others more or less curry.

Ground mango (drained) also is a good substitute for pineapple however recommend you add the mango to taste as it is stronger than the pineapple.
