Easy Tuna Dip

Thank you to another Lisa for this recipe! Here is my version. This was a huge hit on Christmas Eve at my place.

Easy Tuna Dip

250g (8oz) cream cheese
185g (6oz) can tuna in brine or springwater
4tbs sweet chilli sauce

Drain tuna really well. (I tipped mine into a sieve and left it to drain for about 5 mins - stirring it a couple of times. If your can is slightly larger it won't make any difference to the finished product.
Allow cream cheese to soften, then beat it with electric mixer till it is soft and fluffy.
Stir in tuna and chilli sauce and mix until all combined.
Taste and add more sweet chilli sauce, to your own taste.
Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Serve with hard biscuits, as the dip sets once you refrigerate it.

Recipe can be halved.
If using the soft cream cheese in the tub you won't need to whip it first.
Also you can cheat and buy the tuna with chilli in one of the foil sachets and just stir that through the tub of soft cream cheese!
Also works with light cream cheese.

Hi Lis

I just enjoyed reading your comment on the Simple Green Frugal Coop and decided to pop in to visit you. Partly because you spell your name like my sister does!, partly because you reside in Adelaide, as I do and also just to see something of your life.

Thanks it has been nice reading through your recipes etc.

Please feel free to pop in and visit me anytime to see me frolicking in my simple life with my young family.

Happy Easter.
Cee
