Men's Dip

Recipe by  

"This is a hearty hot, spicy dip that is delicious with corn chips. Tastes much different than you would imagine from the ingredients. Others who I have given this recipe to always want to leave out one ingredient or another. I don't recommend doing this, at least not the first time you make it, as I feel every single one of the ingredients adds something to the flavor."

  1. Crumble the ground beef into a large skillet over medium heat. Cook, stirring to crumble, until starting to brown. Add the onion, garlic, bell pepper and jalapeno pepper, and cook until meat is no longer pink. Drain excess grease. Fill the pan with enough water to cover the beef, cover, and simmer over low heat for 30 minutes.
  2. Stir in the almonds, pimentos, raisins, tomatoes, tomato paste and sugar. Season with oregano and salt. Simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally for at least 1 hour.

This is good. It is different kinda sweet and I do agree, make with all of the ingredients. I am not a big fan of green peppers but I followed the advice given and I am glad I did. Then you can adjust if you want to. I think that next time I might just add alittle more jalapeno just to spice it up a bit. Took a tally at the Super Bowl game and they thought it was great!! Thanks Redirg !! I will make this again.

I needed to find a dip that was gluten-free and dairy-free. This fit the bill. I’ve made it twice and it’s a big hit. I've been told I have to bring this to every get together. The best way to describe the taste is a sweet-hot spaghetti sauce. I end up not taking it all to the party, so the leftovers I just throw into spaghetti sauce or chili I have in the freezer. I partially agree that you should add all the ingredients the first time you make it. I’ve made it twice and the only substitution I would suggest is instead of jalapenos, use red pepper flakes. The first time I made this with jalapenos there was no heat, so I added a few sprinkles of red pepper flakes. The second time I made it I skipped the hassle of chopping jalapenos and added 1.5- 2 teaspoons of red pepper flakes. (I don’t like things too hot and this was the perfect amount of slow-building heat.) Quick summary of my changes—no jalapenos, 1.5-2 tsp. red pepper flakes, jar of roasted red peppers (instead of pimentos) and 1.5 TBSP sugar.

This is really good. I too say make with all the ingredients, then if you want to tweak do it on the second go around. I think I would omit the sugar as is it on the sweet side. I was happy that the jalapeno did not overpower this. It does need to simmer to marry the flavors.
