Roasted Garlic Dip

AKA - Crack on a Chip!

This recipe was given to me by my friend Sarah. It is delicious. Justin & I pretty much ate this entire bowl in one evening. I've tweaked the recipe only a bit.

Roasted Garlic Dip

2 bulbs (not cloves!) of garlic, roasted
1 package cream cheese
1 tsp - TB garlic powder
1-2 TB sour cream

~ Let your cream cheese sit out for a while so that it softens and comes to room temperature. Roast your garlic bulbs, then after they are cool enough to handle, squeeze the roasted garlic out of the skins and into a mixing bowl. Add the softened cream cheese (if it is soft enough this is something you can very easily mix by hand) and the sour cream. The sour cream helps keep it from hardening up too much when it gets chilled. Finally add the garlic powder. The garlic powder gives you a nice garlicy bite at the front, use less if you want less of a bite, more if you want more of a bite - hence why I wrote "1 tsp - TB".
~ Stir it all up together. Chill again in the fridge for a bit, or devour it straight away. Good with ripple chips, pita chips, and straight off the damn spoon.

This is a perfect dish to make when you have a potluck to go to and little time/energy/desire to prep up something bigger.
