Expert Tips

  • Make sure to mix the dip ingredients before you place the lid on and cook in the pressure cooker.
  • Stir in cheese and just let it melt as it sits. If you turn on the saute it could burn the bottom of the pot.
  • Feel free to swap sharp cheese out with mozzarella for a more mellow flavor.
  • Pretzels, chips, bread, sliced veggies all make great ways to scoop up the dip
  • Save leftover dip in the fridge for 3-4 days. Then reheat in the microwave or on the stove.
  • You can double the recipe if you have a larger pressure cooker that doesn’t go over the max fill line.
