Recipe: Warm Blue Cheese Dip

This warm dip is amazing with natural baked corn chips or still-sizzling, coarsely-salted sunchoke or potato chips. You can also spice this recipe up by adding freshly chopped basil or rosemary. It is a great appetizer idea and can be made with sour cream instead of yogurt, for a sharper cultured taste and a richer flavor.


  • 1 cup plain Greek-style yogurt
  • 5 Tbsp. crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 chives, chopped finely


  1. Warm yogurt in a small pan over low heat.
  2. Add blue cheese and stir gently, keeping the mixture moving to prevent scorching. Keep the heat low while warming.
  3. Cook for about 10 minutes, stirring and watching carefully for scorching.
  4. Add pepper and turn off heat.
  5. Garnish with chives and serve immediately.
