Chili Crisp Feta Dip

I love following food trends and I recently read about Chili Crisp which is a spicy oil-based condiment most commonly used in Chinese cuisine, made by infusing oil with dried red chiles, fried garlic, shallots and ginger. Combining it with cream cheese, salty feta and sweet honey helps to balance all the flavors to create the perfect bite. I served mine with fried wonton chips (simply fry wonton wraps in veggie oil until lightly browned and drain on paper towels), but you could also serve this with buttery crackers, rice crackers or veggies.

  1. Place cream cheese, feta, half and half, honey, chili crisp and salt in a food processor and process until combined.

2. Transfer mixture to a mixing bowl and stir in green onion.

3. Place dip in a serving bowl and garnish with a spoonful of chili crisp, sliced green onion, sesame seeds and a drizzle of honey.
