Herbed Goat Cheese Queso and Cali'Crisps

Prepare Dip

Preheat oven to 450. On the stove top, in a large pot of boiling salted water, blanch asparagus, until crisp-tender, about 2 min. Remove and place in ice water. Drain and set aside. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Add leeks and cook until soft; stirring often, about 10 min. Whisk in flour; gradually whisk in milk. Bring to a simmer, whisking constantly. Cook, whisking occasionally, until thickened then remove from heat. Add cheddar; whisk until cheese is melted and mixture is smooth. Season to taste with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Fold in asparagus (reserve tips), artichoke hearts, peas, chives, mint, flat-leaf parsley, zest and 2 oz goat cheese crumbles. Transfer mixture to a 4-5 cup baking dish; arrange asparagus tips on top and sprinkle with remainder of goat cheese. Bake until golden brown and bubbling, 15-20 min. Remove from oven and let rest for 5 min. Serve alongside Cali’flour Foods Crisps. Enjoy!
