Okay people. Quick and easy Pineapple Dip. This has recently become sort of a quick go-to-recipe when entertaining or when you need to bring something to someone’s house in a jiffy. Everyone seems to really like it. Cristina, however, doesn’t like pineapple so she is not in agreement with me here. 🙂
1 block cream cheese
1 can crushed pineapple drained but reserve the juice *see tips below* (the above picture is seen with pineapple tidbits because I accidentally grabbed the wrong product in a rush)
at least 1/2 cup chopped pecans (i actually like more)
green onions (like 4-5 including the white part) and some for garnish
Now listen very carefully to these directions and take your time. Don’t skip ANY steps as it is critical to the preparedness of this dish. (pausing for effect) Mix it all together. Done.
- Softened cream cheese is easier to mix and incorporate all the ingredients
- I use more pecans then 1/2 cup because I LOVE pecans. In a rush I’ll grab the 4 oz bag of Diamond brand chopped pecans which equals 1/2 cup but I think you need at least that amount
- I wind up using some of the reserved pineapple juice and add to my liking. It helps the cream cheese get a little bit more of that pineapple flavor and also thins it out a little bit.
This recipe is easily doubled. Serve with club crackers.
