D Magazine: Central Market's Love Dip

Every time I walk through Central Market, I look longingly at this dip.  And I have to remind myself that I need to eat something normal for dinner, and not this dip by the spoonful.  There's just something addictive about this dip, but I wanted to see if I could make it on my own instead of relying on the dip buffet at the store.  Luckily, D Magazine had some hints for me.  This dip is delicious with corn or potato chips.  Or just eaten off a spoon.
