  • 16 servings Superbowl party, anyone? Whether you’re hosting a gathering or going to one, here’s the app that’ll be sure to please everyone. It’s basically a Mexican layer dip with a few new twists—which is why I call it “inspired.” Frankly, I make dip for casual get-togethers more often than anything else because it’s always demolished, in a good way. But I prepare a different version every time I whip it up. This is my new translation—and my new favorite. The grapes on top … love! And the quark in it will surely raise some eyebrows—it’s simply a fresh European-style cheese that’s like a super creamy cottage cheese. Let me know if your dip gets demolished, too!
