Campfire Mexican Dip with Grenadine Lime Sippers

Pin It Now!
You know one of the great things I love about summer?
It's the season for dipping and sipping outside while enjoying some of the best weather of the year with family and friends!
And who doesn't like a little Mexican heat for dipping, along with a cool refreshing bevvie  to cool off the palate?

I can always count on Mexican flavors as a crowd favorite whenever serving a meal or snack to my family or friends. It's always received very well and disappears quickly!
And this easy dip made in a cast iron frying pan is perfect to serve when camping or in the backyard.
{I know that we always have our trusty cast iron frying pan with us when we camp...it's a must!}
And this dip is not too spicy so it is great for the kids and adults alike.
However, feel free to turn up the heat by adding chopped hot peppers if sizzling heat is more your style.
Easy Mexican Campfire Dip
{serves 6}

Ingredients:
1 brick cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup mayo or sour cream
1/2 cup salsa
1/2 cup chopped green onion
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon Tex Mex spice
1/2 cup diced red pepper
1/2 cup diced fresh avocado

Directions:
1. In large bowl, add cream cheese, mayo or sour cream, salsa, green onion, cheese and Tex Mex Spice.
2. With wooden spoon, whip everything together until mixed well. This is a good way to get the kids to help too.
 3. Spread in bottom of cast iron frying pan or large foil pan.
4. Place on grill-topped campfire or BBQ on high heat for about 15-20 minutes, or until dip is hot and bubbly. Remove from heat and sprinkle with chopped red pepper and avocado.
 5. Serve with tortilla chips, pita bread, crackers or veggies for dipping. Delish!
And as everyone is digging into the tasty dip, it will be time to mix together some refreshing sippers!
These sippers are easy to create camp-side, and are a different take on the usual.
 Grenadine Lime Sippers

Sparkling water, soda water, 7-Up, or Sprite
Grenadine Syrup {found among drink mixes in the grocery store}

Lime slices and cherries for garnish

1. Fill each drinking glass with 1/3 ice.
2. Add sparkling water, soda water, 7-Up or Sprite to each glass leaving 2 inches from top to add grenadine syrup and limeade.
3. To each glass add a good splash of grenadine syrup and tablespoon of frozen limeade.
4. Garnish each glass with a cherry and slice of lemon and serve!

Mmm, what a great idea for a dip - I'm pretty sure every member of our family would eat it up! And a good idea to add to a camping menu - I'd probably prepare the main portion in advance and bring it along in a tupperware to minimize the work on the campsite.
