Whether you’re looking for a new snack to make for the big game, or are having friends over for a fall party, there is something about a warm, comforting appetizer, that we can’t resist. While we love our cold dips here (hello! that’s all we make) we highly recommend baking a one too.

This ooey gooey cheese dip is made with handful of simple ingredients and is packed with protein thanks to the secret ingredient…hummus! So you can feel guilt free as you go back for your second and third scoop. This baked cheese dip base would be great of a lot of mix-ins, but we opted for baby spinach, kalamata olives and sundried tomatoes. With all the flavor, this will quickly become your go to dip for parties!

Yields: 6-8 Servings
