This recipe originally comes from Rick Bayless (I’ve tweeked it a bit) and is SO delicious and ridiculously easy. I get requests for it all the time. I do a mixture of cream cheese and feta, but have also tried it with goat cheese. I prefer the salty bite of the feta, but either is really delicious. Really great alongside fish tacos and a good beer.
Salsa Verde Dip
1/4 cup toasted pine nuts, chopped pecans or walnuts
5-6 oz. cream cheese, softened

Preheat oven to 350°F.
Combine the toasted pine nuts and cheeses in an oven proof dish. Form mixture into a disk and top with salsa. Bake in oven 5-7 minutes, or until heated through. Garnish with avocado and cilantro and serve with blue corn tortilla chips or raw veggies. Salud a mis amigas!
