Kimchi Dip

Kimchi Dip

I have been on quite the kimchi craze lately! I am always looking for new ideas for ways to enjoy kimchi and recently a reader suggested something that I could not pass up on, a kimchi dip. I had not even contemplated using kimchi in a dip but it sounded like a great idea! A quick search of the web for kimchi dip recipes did not turn up anything that inspired me so I had to come up with my own. Since I discovered that kimchi and cheese is a great combination I have been trying to combine them any chance that I get and a cheese based kimchi dip sounded perfect. My favorite cheese based dip is the hot spinach and artichoke dip and I figured that I could not go wrong starting with that recipe and replacing the spinach and artichokes with kimchi. I also went with a panko bread crumb topping to add a bit of a crunchy texture. If this dip is not is not packed with enough artery clogging goodness for you, please feel free to add some cooked crumbled bacon as it also goes really well with kimchi. I am constantly amazed at how well kimchi goes with so many things and this dip is not exception! This hot cheesy kimchi dip was amazing! You really can't go wrong with warm melted gooey cheese and the kimchi flavour worked perfectly in dip form. I also really enjoyed the texture that the kimchi added to the dip and it was always nice biting into the juicy and crispy pieces of kimchi in the dip. I served the hot cheesy kimchi dip with sliced whole wheat baguette. What a great game day snack!

Kevin, just curious as to how you keep in shape surrounded by all these wonderful foods you cook. I gain weight just looking at the pictures.

That sounds completely and totally addicting. There are a bunch of Korean fusion taco trucks around here, and I've tried a kimchi quesadilla, so I can attest that the combo of kimchi and cheese is surprisingly good.

I made this for a summer party and forgot to review. It was a HUGE hit. Everyone raved about it and it was the talk of the party. I'm having a Boxing Day party and will make it again.
