Gluten Free with Epicure Selections!

I'm a new Epicure Selections Consultant, and I'm loving that this Canadian women led company is making efforts to move toward an entirely Gluten Free catalogue! They right now have many many products that are gluten free, and just recently began producing the very popular Cheese Chive Bacon dip mix gluten free also! I love it! With a 3 1/2 year old to feed gluten free, and the rest of the family to keep happy too, I absolutley love their products!

I'm going to share here one of their most popular recipes.

Epicure's Extraordinary Cheese Dip

1/2 cup (125 ml) grated cheddar cheese
1/2 cup (125 ml) grated mozzarella cheese (I use the cheddar jack pre-shredded from Zehrs)
1 cup (250 ml) low-fat mayonnaise (here I prefer to use 1/2 cup sour cream and 1/2 cup mayo, it's less greasy.)
1 tsp (5 ml) Epicure’s Seasoning for Cheese, Chives & Bacon Dip
