Dip Recipes

Whether it’s a holiday celebration or a game day get-together, a good dip is the perfect appetizer to any and every celebration. From smooth and simple to layered and loaded, we have easy dip recipes that’ll have guests coming back for seconds, and thirds and, well, you get the picture. Chip, chip, hooray!

How to Pick the Perfect Party Dips

Appetizers are always a hit, and with so many different types of dip, there’s a version that’s suited for every occasion. Enhance a taco bar with tortilla chips and Restaurant Style Salsa, perk up your picnic with Basil Parmesan Yogurt Dip and Veggie Jars or take fries to the next the level with a Bacon Ranch Dip. For an almost completely hands-off appetizer that’s bursting with slow cooked flavor, try a crock pot dip, such as a Loaded Queso or Jalapeño Popper Dip.

When planning your party menu, remember to take your guests’ dietary preferences into consideration. For plant-forward eaters, consider a Dairy-Free 7-Layer Dip or Plant-Based Layered Shawarma Dip. If anyone on your guestlist follows a gluten-free diet, make sure to include veggies or gluten-free crackers as dippers.

Game Day Dips

No matter which team wins the big game, the chips and dip will be the winners of the snack table. We recommend serving traditional flavors in less time with a warm and delicious Instant Pot Buffalo Chicken Dip, or keeping things cool with this chilled Bacon Ranch Layered Dip. You can also enjoy a better-for-you spin on a classic with an easy and delicious Parmesan Buffalo Hummus, plus the leftovers go great on a sandwich.

Enhance the experience by decorating the snack table with your team’s colors or other items you’d see around the stadium such as banners, footballs or whistles.
