Rye Chip Reuben Dip

There are widely varying stories of where the Reuben sandwich originated, none of which are Irish, however you’re almost certain to find it on the menu at most Irish restaurants and especially at Irish Pubs. This recipe combines all of the classic elements and converts them into a scrumptious dip for rye chips.
