½ cup tahini

1 clove garlic

Juice of 1 lemon

¼ teaspoon smoked paprika

1 teaspoon kosher salt

2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for serving

Caramelized Onion and Scallion Dip

Servings: 6


3 tablespoons unsalted butter

2 onions, sliced into half moons

12 ounces crème fraîche (or sour cream)

1 ½ teaspoon kosher salt

¼ teaspoon ground pepper

1 teaspoon sherry vinegar

6 scallions, thinly sliced

Potato chips, for serving


1. Melt butter in a pan over low heat. Add onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and caramelized, about 45–50 minutes. Remove from pan and let cool slightly.

2. Transfer caramelized onions to a food processor. Pulse a few times to break the onions down into smaller pieces.

3. Add crème fraîche (or sour cream), kosher salt, pepper, and sherry vinegar and process until it forms a chunky dip.

4. Transfer to a bowl and fold in the scallions, reserving a few for garnish.

5. Garnish with reserved scallions and serve with potato chips.

White Cheddar Queso

Servings: 8


2 tablespoons butter

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 jalapeño, minced

½ teaspoon kosher salt

1 tablespoon cornstarch

¾ cup whole milk

¾ cup heavy cream

4 ounces cream cheese, softened

1½ cup (12 ounces) white cheddar cheese, shredded

Diced red bell pepper, for garnish

Diced jalapeño, for garnish

Tortilla chips, for serving


1. Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat. Add garlic, jalapeño, and salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 3 minutes.

2. Stir in cornstarch, milk, and heavy cream. Heat until bubbles begin to appear at the edges of the pan, then whisk in cream cheese.

3. Gradually whisk in white cheddar cheese, allowing cheese to fully melt before more cheese is added. Once queso is smooth and all cheese is melted, remove from heat.

4. Pour into a serving bowl and garnish with a small pile of diced red bell pepper and diced jalapeno in the center. Serve with tortilla chips.
