My absolute favourite snacking food to eat at home is Doritos and Dip. Oh how I have craved this treat so many times but there was no dip to be found, salsa was my only option.  If there was ever any event in my life to make me believe in a higher power it was the good fortune of me finally discovering how to make dip the week before they released cheesy Doritos in Korea. They have been selling the American cheesy Doritios in homeplus and foreign food mart for some time now, although I will admit the American version is nicer it is also much more expensive at 5,000 a bag. If you eat as many as I do this can develop into a very costly addiction. They currently sell a large bag of the Korean ones in Daiso for 2000.

On to the dip, the secret of this recipe is using half mayo and half sour cream. When I first started making this dip I was buying 1kg boxes of mayonnaise as it was cheaper, I have now moved up several notches on my gluttony belt and have taken to buying the 3.5kg jar of mayonnaise at Costco and where before one large tub of sour cream a trip would suffice I am now on to two at a time. But like I said it is my favourite snack and we all deserve to have something we love waiting in the fridge at home for us.  The recipe below will make a pint of dip but feel free to double or triple it as I do.


 6 tbsp. Mayo

6 tbsp. Sour Cream

50g Cheddar cheese finely grated

2 tbsp. Garlic Powder

3-6 spring onions (depending on girth)


Mix the mayonnaise and sour cream together in an empty tub or bowl. Stir in the garlic powder cheese and spring onions. Leave for 30 minutes in the fridge if you are capable of restraining yourself, this lets the garlic powder dissolve otherwise it tastes a little powdery.  Serve with cheesy doritos or BBQ doritos if you swing the other way.  Voila my favourite snack in minutes.

  1. Any way of getting around the mayo? all sour cream? maybe 1/2 sour cream, 1/2 yogurt? I don’t eat eggs period, and mayo grosses me out to no extreme. I even make potato salad and chicken salad with homemade yogurt instead!
