Place all ingredients in a medium bowl. Mix on speed 3 for 1 minute, then increase speed to speed 5 to whip for an additional 2 minutes until light and fluffy. Allow to stand at least 30 minutes before serving to allow flavors to blend. Transfer to a resealable container and refrigerate. Remove from refrigerator 15 minutes before serving to soften. Serve with crackers, pita or bagel chips. This also makes a good topping for a baked potato.
