Indian Queso with Jalapeño Chutney

You may not think Indian flavors and queso go together, but this dip from The Homesick Texan‘s new cookbook proves it’s a brilliant idea. Processed cheese really does melt perfectly, and combines seamlessly with the spices here: cumin (which regularly shows up in both Indian and Mexican cuisine), paprika, and cayenne. The spicy chutney is heavy on garlic, cilantro, and jalapeño, with a hint of ginger and unsweetened flaked coconut, plus lime juice for brightness.

Caesar Salad

Some Caesar recipes try to downplay the anchovies and garlic, but here you can taste both (hint: The anchovies are in the dressing), and yes, it’s good. This is a great salad to make for a party.
