This week, we review Simple Truth Cilantro Jalapeno Dip. Here's what we thought of this flavor of Krogers' store brand cauliflower dip.
Simple Truth Cilantro Jalapeno Dip review
Y'all, this dip! Simple Truth makes three cauliflower-based creamy dips, and this is the second one we've tried from that line. The other dips of theirs that we've tried are:
We loved the Cilantro Jalapeno Dip the most of all of these! It was creamy and tangy with a little bit of heat.
The texture was lovely. It was rich and smooth without the gummy consistency that you sometimes get with non-dairy dips.
Our only critique was that it could have been spicier. We both really enjoyed it, but when you put jalapeno in the name of a product, there should be a little bit more of a kick to it.
That said, this dip is definitely going to be in our regular rotation.
We dipped Ruffles and pita chips in this, and it was great on both. I also used it as a sandwich spread to add a little bit of zing to a Tofurky sandwich, and I definitely recommend trying that.
That weekend, we made grit bowls with Morningstar Chik'n Strips, corn, and spinach, and that was a treat with a dollop of this dip on top. It gave it a real Southwest vibe.
With any non-dairy dip, I know people are wondering what's in it. How do they make it creamy without dairy? Here's what's in the Simple Truth Cilantro Jalapeno Dip:
Cauliflower , Water , Almonds , Cashews , Cilantro , Non-GMO , Expeller Pressed Canola Oil , Lime Juice , Apple Cider Vinegar , Jalapeno Peppers , Sea Salt , Garlic , Xanthan Gum
Cauliflower and the nuts are where most of the creaminess comes from. Nuts are great for adding creaminess to a dip! That's why I use cashew cream as the base for so many dip recipes, like my spinach-artichoke dip.
