Can you believe that Appetizer Week is already over? It has gone by so fast!! I really hope you have enjoyed all of the amazing snacks that have been shared this week!

For my last recipe, I present to you this Creamy Cilantro Lime Dip!  It was so simple to make & the Hubs really enjoyed it! Since I like to keep it real here, I didn’t really enjoy it.  But I’m not a fan of cream cheese at all & even with the fresh cilantro & lime juice, I still could taste too much cream cheese. But you try it for yourself & then come back and let me know what you thought!!
