I've had Mexican white dip with tortilla chips in both Hampton Roads, Va. and in Maryland. This is definitely not it. Too much oregano (it's supposed to be Mexican, not Italian!) and the restaurant white dips I've had are thicker and very white - thus the second time I made this (trying to get it closer to the restaurants' versions), I reduced the milk to 1/4 cup, omitted the cumin which the very-white restaurant versions obviously don't have, and reduced the oregano to 1 tsp. The first version was far too spicy hot so I reduced the red pepper flakes down to 1 tsp. My 2nd version was much better but still not like the restaurants' dip. The Miracle Whip flavor is too intense, so in my next attempt I'm going to use 1 cup Miracle Whip and 1 cup sour cream to see if that helps. (I love the restaurant version and really want to get the recipe as similar as possible.) The recipe was a starting point but needs more work. This recipe makes a ton so you may wish to half it. It can be served with tortilla chips or small pretzel squares.
