This Mexican inspired dip can be served hot or cold. But hot is my all time favorite way because all the ingredients and flavors are allowed to melt and amalgamate together into a super tasty, bubbly hot pot of yummy goodness. 😍

My husband and kids are huge fans too, and I find myself making it for party snacks and appetizers alike. It's super practical too as you can make it a couple of days ahead of the party and just pop it under a hot grill just before serving.

This recipe is a twist on a classic British dish called Welsh rarebit (not rabbit). My husband makes this mean Welsh Rarebit, which is basically a posh cheese and onion topping for toast. But I had other ideas for it!

As a lover of spice and Mexican flavors, I added a spicy twist to the dip with fresh chilies, spring onions and smoked paprika, which turns out to be a match made in party-food heaven. The perfect way to serve it is alongside Breton Artisanal Sweet Potato and Ancient Grains!
