Paleo Rotel Dip

Rotel Dip | Plaid and Paleo

I’m halfway done with Whole30. I feel like I’ve rounded a major bend and can see the light at the end. I’d like to say Whole30 has been a breeze, but it wouldn’t be the truth. I really like honey, like really like it! So far I’ve realized I still have a sugar problem. On about day three, I went into a big sugar detox. I caved and ate a date. While I don’t eat too many paleo treats, I like layering a little sweetness in my savory dishes. I am enjoying cooking and developing new recipes during this time! If you can’t tell, I am only posting Whole30 recipes during the month of January! 

So I was trying to recreate one of my favorite holiday dips, but this came out more like the shall not be named rotel and cheese dip. I honestly didn’t care that it didn’t turnout how I wanted because I was too busy stuffing my face with this dip! With the Superbowl only a couple weeks away, I am already planning on making this rotel dip again. I love the Superbowl and always attempt to throw a party. This year might be a little more successful since I actually have cable.
