PINEAPPLE SPREAD OR DIP FOR CHIPS OR CRACKERS




PINEAPPLE SPREAD OR DIP FOR CHIPS OR CRACKERS
This spread is perfect served with the MontereyJack Dipping Chips as seen in the photo above. The chips are ribbed chips made entirely out of shredded Monterey Jack Cheese!  It could not be easier to make the chips or crackers - they serve well for both purposes - for spreading or dips or I even had bacon and egg (cut to size) on mine for breakfast. This spread or dip (used as either again) adds a bit of sweet to the treat, making it a combination of savory and sweet.  I love combining those flavors!
