New Cream Cheese Dip

We always looked forward to Mom's dried beef 
Cream Cheese Ball for the holidays. Like any cheese ball  the cracker usually broke as we tried to spread the hard mixture. I thought it would be nice to make a creamier mixture to dip and scoop with a cracker instead. This is what I came up with and now it's a family favorite!

1- 8 ounce pack of cream cheese, room temperature
1 jar chipped beef, rinsed, pat dry
1 small onion, chopped
2 Tbsp Miracle Whip
2-4 squirts Worcestershire
1- Tbsp horseradish or 1/4 cup Woeber's Horseradish Sauce
1/2 cup sour cream or plain yogurt 

Rinse the salt off the chipped beef and pat dry with a paper towel, then chop.  Using electric mixer combine cream cheese, Miracle Whip, Worcestershire, horseradish and sour cream until smooth. Add chopped beef and onion. Pour in a liberal amount of love. Mix well. Keep refrigerated until needed. Serve with crackers.
