Smoked Gouda Pimento Cheese Dip Recipe

Dionne Baldwin | Try Anything Once

Smoked Gouda Pimento Cheese Dip is a classic dip kicked up a notch. The flavors in this will blow you over!

Thank goodness smoked gouda pimento cheese dip (like most dips) is very portable, making it easy to make ahead and take with me to potlucks. A good friend of mine often has potluck dinners at her house and asks attendees to bring an appetizer.

The first dip I brought over was Beer Dip and since then the bar has been set very high for future dips brought to her house. I’ve even made Stuffed Mushrooms with dip hoping they would meet the hostess and fellow guests’ expectations!

We do love catching up on new happenings with each other and chatting in between mouthfuls of homemade appetizers is the best way to mingle. There’s something powerful about a group of friends coming together to support each other.

Life can get a bit rough sometimes but it’s a little easier and a lot better with true friends.

I often make this recipe with roasted red peppers, but it’s even better with roasted piquillo peppers. There’s a good chance you’ll find them next to the plain red peppers in jars at the grocery store.

The brand I use warns us about the potential spiciness of the peppers, but I don’t feel the heat from them at all.

The piquillo peppers harmonize extremely well with the smoked Gouda cheese, giving this dip a savory flavor similar to a wood fired pizza without the crust. It’s definitely worth trying!

If you’re bringing this dip to share with a large crowd, double the batch. For a small group of good friends catching up on recent events, you can make this recipe as is unless you want some left over.

Smoked gouda pimento cheese dip is for more than just spreading on crackers. Try spreading this dip on your favorite burger or inside a sandwich wrap for your lunch!
