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.
