Searching for secret dip recipe...
About sixteen years ago I used to go to a monthly potluck before a contra dance (google it) in very rural New Hampshire.
A big bunch of us bleeding-heart-liberal-Birkenstock-wearing-starving-artisan-neo-hippies would gather around and just inhale the dip that one guy (we'll call him Dan) would always bring. It was warm and orange and spicy and just fabulous, and he would NEVER tell us what was in it. We loved it.
A little later I got to know Dan (ahem) rather well, and during a somewhat...personal...moment I decided to take advantage and asked him what was in that dip.
He STILL wouldn't give me the exact recipe, but I DID learn that it involved a double boiler, horseradish, and a great big chunk of (Oh Horrors!) ---- Velveeta.
We dancing hippies woulda DIED if we knew we were eating that icon of all-we-rejected.
I've already searched various threads here and it definitely wasn't the Ro-tel stuff (which also sounds kinda good) Does this ring a bell with anyone? Got a recipe?
