Comments on this Recipe

Use nutritional yeast in place of the parmesan! :)

I wasn't crazy about this dip the first time that I made it for a party. It wasn't bad, it just didn't have enough "oomph" for me. Then, I exchanged half of the mayo with light sour cream (which I like better) and added a few splashes of sriracha sauce(or as commonly called "rooster sauce"). I'm sure any hot sauce would work too. The result was great for the next party -- for the Super Bowl.

I modified this recipe to be vegan. My husband LOVED it! I also made it for a party and it was a smashing hit! Everyone was asking for the recipe. I made 4x the recipe and it was all gone in a couple hours.

What type of cheese did you use in place of the parmesan to make it vegan? i have issues with vegan cheese(except the cream cheese).

This was delicious. The smoked paprika is a great touch. If you like more spice, increase the amount of cayenne.
