1. Peace Love & Power Dip – If you happen to can think about an up to date model of the virtuous hippie spreads discovered for many years in California grocery co-ops and farmers’ markets — that is what I used to be going for right here.

The deep, caramelized flavors of roasted tomatoes and onions alongside the smokiness of the chipotles make for a richly stunning and balanced mixture.
