The flavors of this bright and savory dip go well with just about any dippable! Carrots and celery are always a good pairing- the cool flavor of the veggies and the warm spice of the dip is a great combo. Tortilla chips are a must, and you can make these fresh in the air fryer if you have one! Potato chips, pita chips, crackers, and crostini are all great options, too.
