No party is complete without a variety of tasty dips. Dips can be eaten with chips, vegetables, bread, and an array of other finger foods that guests can nibble on while mingling with other people. Dips are wonderful because they are easy and inexpensive to make. It’s simple to alter a dip recipe to accommodate multiple guests. If all of the dip isn’t used at a party, it can be sealed and stored for several days. With so many dips, it may be hard to choose which ones to prepare for your next party. These three dip recipes are easy, delicious, and sure to be a hit at your gathering.
ONION DIP: An onion dip is excellent with potato chips, pretzels, and crackers. It even goes well with raw vegetables such as carrots, celery, and broccoli. You can easily make your own homemade dip so avoid prepackaged dips that are loaded with preservatives. Dice 1 ½ cups of onions and sauté them in olive oil until they are caramelized. While the onions are cooking, combine 1 ½ cups of sour cream, ¾ cup of mayo, ¼ teaspoon of garlic powder, ¼ teaspoon of white pepper, and ½ teaspoon of kosher salt. Once the onions have caramelized, mix them in with the other ingredients, cover, and refrigerate until it is time to serve.
HAM DIP: An appetizing ham dip is perfect for any guest. This dip is excellent to set out among veggies, chips, and party breads at your next gathering. Simply combine 1 container of Underwood Deviled Ham Spread, ½ cup of cream cheese, 2 tablespoons of sour cream, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, ½ teaspoon of kosher salt, ¼ teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce, and black pepper to taste. Whisk all of the ingredients until nicely blended. Then cover and store in the refrigerator until it is time to serve it to your guests.
CHILI CHEESE DIP: Instead of plain old salsa, add a kick to tortilla chips with chili cheese dip. Simply layer cream cheese in a casserole dish, top with chili that does not contain beans, and then add a layer of shredded cheese. You can bake at a low temperature until the cheese is melted, or you can pop it in the microwave if it’s in a microwave safe dish. This dish is best served right out of the oven or microwave along with tortilla chips.
All three of these dips require little preparation time. They are fast, easy, and inexpensive to make. Alter the recipes to your liking with the addition of other ingredients or spices. Get creative with your dips to make them truly memorable. Make one or all three recipes and provide your guests with a variety of snacking options at your next party or special event.
