- Expecting a crowd? Make a large batch by doubling the ingredients.
- This recipe can be made the same day, but does taste best if prepared the night before.
- Low-salt Ritz® crackers pair excellently with the dip.
- Low-fat cream cheese may be substituted but sodium and phosphorus is higher.
- Definitely do not use fat-free cream cheese, as this will compromise the taste.
- Some low-sodium ketchup brands contain potassium chloride instead of salt. Avoid these brands because the potassium is much higher.
