This post was originally published in October 2013 as one of my FIRST POSTS EVER! It’s been an absolute favorite ever since so I thought it could use a face lift. Enjoy!

I don’t really have words for this dip.  I’m not even sure what to write besides, BEST. DIP. EVER. It might be the best thing I have ever tasted. I know, I know, I say I like all the recipes I make. This one is just in a different category. Simple flavors and simple prep = simply delicious! I made this and posted it for the first time back in October 2013 and let’s just say it’s a good things I didn’t figure out the recipe before my wedding. Fitting into that wedding dress would have been a disaster. But worth it??? Maybe! :) (Be sure to check out our other favorite Easy Caprese Recipe!)

Don’t blame yourself, just avoid the madness and make it for groups of 10 or more.  PSA over.

I’ve always loved caprese recipes and have made quite a few since I opened the door on this blog. A few favorites include White Chicken Caprese Lasagna, Mini Caprese Cups, Stuffed Caprese Chicken Sandwiches, and Caprese Bruschetta. All are SO YUM, but this is the dip that started it all. Cheesy Caprese Dip. INSANELY GOOD!  I wish i could take all the credit for this recipe.  Especially since its the best thing I’ve ever tasted and one of the best things i’ve ever made.  I found a similar recipe here, made a few tweaks, and this baby was born.

I can't decide if I want to steal the dip or the pooches... what cuties!
M Swift
So do you cook the dip for 10 to 15 minutes total, or an additional 6 to 8 minutes with the bread in there? Thanks!
    becky gall hardin
    10-15 minutes total. you'll see when the dip gets really melty and a little brown on the top. just pop the bread in with about 8 minutes left :). hope you like it!
Kim

Sounds delish...But what is... Herbs of province??
    becky gall hardin
    its a blend of herbs. sometimes it is also called provincial herbs. its usually sold at most grocery stores. here is a good link describing it. I love the flavor! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herbes_de_Provence

Oh my yumminess! I think I'm in trouble now, 'cause I could eat that all by myself! I might just have to make this for my daughter's graduation party. It will be a hit for sure! Thanks, Becky!
Brandy Rosenfeldt
could you do the caprese dip in acrock pot?
    Becky Hardin
    You could! I haven't tried it but I think it would work out just fine.
Kelly
What do you do to keep this dip warm and melty if serving at a party? Any method you prefer for reheating? Or does it never last that long, lol?!
    Becky Hardin
    It's never lasted that long for us :) But you can reheat in the oven or you could throw it in a slow cooker for a party. Enjoy!
Sharon Proctor
Can you please explain what type of cheese Monterey Jack is - aged chedaar, sharp, etc as I haven't seen this type of cheese in Australia. Also what can I replace herbs of provance with?
    Becky Hardin
    Hi Sharon! It's just a shredded cheese blend we have here in the states. You can use any shredded white cheese. White cheddar would be good if you guys have that. Also you can just leave the herbs of provence out...but here is an explanation of what that is. Hope you love the dip! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herbes_de_Provence
