A super yummy dip you can serve alongside gluten-free crackers or fresh veggies. I added some hot sauce and chili flakes for extra heat, but you could leave those out. Or, simply divide the dip into two batches and stir through half the amounts of the hot sauce and chili flakes (the good stuff) only into the ‘adult’s version’ and give the kids a non-spicy mix. Enjoy!
