I put my hand upon your hip
When I dip you dip we dip
You put your hand upon my hip
When you dip I dip we dip...

Aaaaand that's all of that song we can print without getting all NC-17 on you, but seriously - mmmmm, dip. Truth be told, we're more Puppy Bowl than Super Bowl 'round Eatocracy HQ, but we'll gladly get our gridiron on if it means getting to dive face-first into a vat full of dippy goodness.

Despite all the press releases we're fielding about new, revolutionary, ground-breaking, earth-shattering, life-changing, chef-crafted, fat-free, artisanalsustainableorganic dip recipes, we tend to stick with the classics. Kat gets her Knorr Spinach on, while Sarah takes a lap in the guacamole bowl.

How ya getting your dip on this Sunday?

    My sister makes a reeeally good shrimp dip. I don't ask her for the recipe, because I want her to keep making it, and I like having the excuse that I don't have the recipe when the holiday cooking comes up... It's shrimp, cottage cheese, and some other stuff. Looks fairly horrible, but tastes like heaven.

    One of my childhood favorites is a heart attack waiting to happen, because you end up eating pretty much an entire block of cream cheese.

    Put block of cream cheese in a bowl.
    Pour salsa all over it.
    Get those Cooler Ranch Doritos for it. Get a wad of salsa and cream cheese on your chip. Mmmmmmmmm
    I suppose you could warm it up.

    I can't do Buffalo Chicken Dip – it's gross. the one time I tried it, it had about a 1/4 inch layer of orange grease all over. Yuck.
    My favorite dips are:
    1) fresh tomato pico de gallo with jalapenos or habaneros, with a side of guacamole.
    2) refried bean nacho dip (layer refried beans, cream cheese, sour cream, tomato, onion, shredded cheese, black olives)
    3) sun dried tomato dip (in a blender, mix a bag of sun dried tomatos and cream cheese)

    And this dip that a friend brought to one of our 4th of July parties:
    BLT Dip
    Mix light mayo and sour cream together
    layer on tomatos. bacon (crumbled) and chives
    Serve with crostini

    Creamy jalapeno ranch dressing dip at Chuy's. Incredible. I've tried making it several times but can't get close to theirs; it's not just jalapenos added to ranch dressing. Austin, TX

      Jalapeno Popper – BEST DIP EVER!!!!
      I prefer mine cold rather than warm because I find it more flavorful when chilled.

    My mother's cheeseball (not as 'dippy' as other recipes, but crackers are used, soooo lol...)

    In a lag bowl, combine:
    1 pkg Velveeta Chz (1 lb)
    1 8 oz pkg cream cheese
    1 8 oz pkg crumbled bleu cheese
    1 pkg shredded cheddar cheese
    Sprinklings of onion powder & garlic salt to taste
    ^^ cheeses should be room temp

    Using clean hands, knead the cheeses & seasonings together. Transfer ti a serving dish & shape into a ball or ithet shape. Great with Triskets or Wheat Thins!

    I 3 oz brick of cream cheese
    Hot sauce to taste
    Toss it all in a pan heat through until the cream cheese is melted.

    Mock oyster dip. This s a recipe we ave made for years.

    February 5, 2011 at 8:22 pm |
    • Lynne, the other one...

      A bit late in the season for Mock Oysters in this part of the world, I fear. ;)

      Hummus, salsa, black bean dip, and guacamole tend to be the dips of choice in my household, with occasional cream cheese dips such as "smoked salmon".

    If I am going to make a dip I only make Cooking Light Tex-Mex Black bean dip (June 1998). It isn't greasy like other dips and it isn't loaded in fat (just 1g) and calories (just 42 for 2 tbsp). I've been making this since I first saw it in 1998.

    Basic Queso Dip. 1 lb. VELVEETA, 1 can Rotel.cut Velveeta into cubes, add Rotel, and heat stirring frequently. Serve over tortilla chips for nachos, or serve as a dip for raw veggies (cauliflower, broccoli, carrot sticks, celery) for a healthier dish. I keep this one in the crockpot on low for as long as it lasts.

    red pepper
    hot sauce
    worcestershire sauce
    s & p
    put into shallow baking dish, cover with sharp grated cheddar 20mins @ 400.

    How about a zippy bean dip? 1 can refried beans, 1 can Rotel, 1 pkt taco seasoning, 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar. Mix together taco seasoning, and Rotel, add refried beans, and heat, stirring frequently. After they are well combined, stir in cheese, continue stirring until cheese melts. You may add water to adjust consistency. Serve with corn chips or tortilla chips, or make bean burritos.Yum!

    Not many people think of it, but one of my favorite dips is actually lowfat cottage cheese. The creaminess perfectly offsets a good chip like flavored Doritos or Ruffles, and as far as dips go, it's one of the healthier options. I could eat that non-stop.

      To me, cottage cheese is about as appetizing as a diaper filled with burnt Indian food. No thanks.

    My mom's coworker made this amazing corn dip for a party back in December, and we got her to share the recipe so we can make it for Sunday. It's got both pepper jack and Parmesan cheese, fiesta corn, mayo, and green chilies in it, and is baked until lightly browned.
