    Default Your favorite dips?

    I'm always looking for good dip recipes. I thought I'd be fun to share some of our favorites!

    Hot Feta Artichoke Dip:

    1 can artichoke hearts, chopped (I also throw in half a jar of marinated hearts)
    1 8oz package crumbled feta cheese
    1 cup mayo
    1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
    2 oz diced pimentos
    1 clove garlic, minced

    Bake in shallow baking dish at 350 degrees for 25 min, or until lightly browned.

    Serve with crackers (like Triscuits) or tortilla chips (my preference)

    This is a really easy dip that I throw together when I have unexpected visitors:

    - In a regular sized cereal bowl, put equal amounts of salsa and cream cheese. I like to use a medium or hot salsa to give it a kick.

    -Put the mixture in the microwave for about one minute.

    -While the dip is in the microwave, dice a small tomato and drizzle with lime juice.

    -Remove salsa cream cheese mixture from microwave and stir with a whisk until it has a smooth texture.

    -Garnish the top of the dip with the diced tomato and, if you have any, jalapenos.

    -Serve with corn chips.


    This is a simple, tasty dip that all of my friends have really enjoyed, and it's great to make in a pinch. It goes well with beer and margaritas.

    Heat gorgonzola cheese with some half-and-half or cream in a pot until the cheese is mostly incoporated. Add a bit of butter at the end and serve with french or italian bread.

    My aunt makes this great, literally pour-and-go dip with raspberry chipotle preserves and a block of cream cheese..

    1 package cream cheese
    1 bottle Fischer & Wieser Original Roasted Raspberry Chipotle Sauce

    Place cream cheese on serving dish and pour 1/3 cup The Original Roasted Raspberry Chipotle SauceŽ over top, allowing it to drizzle down sides of cream cheese. Garnish with fresh raspberries and mint, if desired. Serve with gingersnap cookies or assorted crackers.

    My version of guacamole and it's just avocado plus seasoning so it's healthy. Adjust quantities to taste.

    2-3 ripe avocados
    1 finely chopped tomato
    2-3 cloves chopped garlic
    Pinch chilli powder
    Tsp cumin (seeds or ground)
    Tsp ground corriander
    Salt to taste
    Splash lime/lemon juice

    Mash avocado either until smooth or slightly chunky depending on your preference.
    Mix in spices/tomato with avocado, add salt if necessary and a squirt of lime/lemon juice to stop it going brown too quickly.
    Keeps for a couple of days in an airtight container in the fridge.
    Not suitable for freezing.

    Mmm I love guacamole. This sounds like a good recipe for it. There is a Mexican restaurant here where they will bring out fresh avocados along with the other ingredients and make the guacamole right there at your table.

    Just give me pico de gallo!
    My Mom used to make this one:
    1 can deviled ham
    1 stick cream cheese
    mix well & serve-really is good.

    KNORR SPINACH DIP
    1 (10 oz.) pkg. frozen chopped spinach, thawed (do not use fresh)
    1 1/2 c. sour cream
    1 c. mayonnaise (I use Hellmann's)
    1 (4 oz.) pkg. Knorr vegetable soup mix
    1 (8 oz.) can water chestnuts, finely chopped
    3 green onions, finely chopped
    Loaf of pumpernickel bread
    Squeeze spinach until dry. In medium bowl, stir together spinach, sour cream and soup mix. Add finely chopped water chestnuts and green onions. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours or overnight. Cut slice from top of round loaf of pumpernickel bread, hollow out loaf to leave shell to contain dip. Use bread removed from shell and top slice to cut into bite size pieces. Butter inside of bread shell, fill loaf with dip and place on platter and surround with bread pieces and variety of raw vegetables. Then...GET OUT OF THE WAY!!! After the dip is eaten, enjoy the dip soaked bread shell as well.

    and the easy but good- crab meat mixed with cream cheese and cocktail sauce poured over it.

    Or any jam poured over cream cheese.

    or velveeta w/ hamburger or sausage and salsa all melted.

    Oh that spinach dip is the best and SO easy with that packet mix. I'm not a big pumpernickel fan so I use a hollowed out sourdough bread. And keep the hollowed out bread for dipping.

    I tried this dip and it is the BEST hands down!!!
    So damn good. The only thing I did differently was use mild salsa instead of medium, because my stomach is sensitive. Delicious- thank you sooo much!

    I bought the stuff today to make this. Maybe I'll even make some tonight. It sounds so yummy.


    I'll go through my recipes for some dips I enjoy, and hopefully some of you can use them.

    1 tbsp tahini
    1 tbsp olive oil
    1 lemon, juiced
    Salt and freshly ground pepper
    1. Put the first five ingredients in a food processor and process until almost smooth (you may need a few extra tbsp water or lemon juice to loosen it).
    2. Season and put in an airtight container. Chill until needed.

    My favorite dip right now is guacamole too. I just mix avocados, salsa, lemon juice, onion salt and sour cream. I made it for company monday night and it was a huge hit!
