I just love adding a nice spicy kick to my meals. Spice can really take a meal from ordinary to extraordinary. My husband believes that heat and spice make everything better. In his opinion, there is never enough heat on his plate! I can confidently say that I’ve never met anyone else that can tolerate the heat levels that he does. It must be because of his South American roots. This cayenne spicy dip that I do find very tasty, but quite spicy, he feels is still mild! He always adds even more cayenne pepper to his portion. It’s just never enough!
So, feel free to adjust the level of heat to suit your own tastes. You may use more or less cayenne pepper than what I suggest below.
This cayenne spicy dip is VERY easy to make and only requires four ingredients.
I use Vegenaise because I prefer its ingredients over mayonaise, and I truly feel that they taste identical. It’s also a perfectly suitable choice for those with an egg intolerance. However, both options work great for this recipe. So if you only have mayo in the fridge, you may definitely use that instead!
It pairs well with almost anything you that want to add some ‘bite’ to. Try it with grilled chicken or grilled veggies. It’s also a great dip for these Baked Lentil Veggie Nuggets. Or use it as a dipping sauce for your pizza crusts, or even raw veggie sticks. You will not be disappointed in the amount of flavour that comes together using only a few ingredients.
Not only does this recipe only require a few basic ingredients, but the preparation takes on a couple of minutes! Just combine everything into a small bowl. Whisk it together, and you’re done! Easy as 1-2-3! Or even just a 1-2!

- 1/2 lemon juiced
