I was recently in NO with a non-foodie! Can you imagine?? I convinced her that going to the Cajun Cooking Class in the mall would be a fun Sunday morning activity. I was right. The stories told as the chefs prepared the food were quite entertaining and the food was pretty good. No complaints and would recommend to those visiting NO.

They served a dip there called their Mardi Gras Dip. It came in a packet and you added sour cream and mayo. It had enough snap to be called a something exciting from New Orleans, but no fire extinguishers were needed to cool off your mouth. I loved it. The ingredients listed were chili powder, dehydrated onion, garlic, bell pepper, etc. I bought serveral packages and they do ship around the country. You can even find websites that sell the packets with no shipping charges.

My friend has food allergies to some of the chemicals usually included in dehydrated dips. I would love to make a similar dip from scratch for her. Can anyone help me with some recipes for a similar type of dip?

Thanks so much!
