5 Must-Try Party Dips

September 10, 20100 Comments

Ever noticed that there’s always a crowd around the chips and dip? Most party dips are super-easy to prepare. All you have to do is slice up some vegetables, open a bag of chips and stand back to watch your guests munch to their heart’s delight. Dips are ideal for just about any event, including holidays, birthday parties and impromptu get togethers. And if you’re worried about calories, homemade dips can be far less fattening than what you buy at the store. .

  1. Tapenade: Combine one pound pitted black olives in a food processor with 1/4 cup drained capers, at least five anchovies, two garlic cloves, black pepper and olive oil (as necessary) to make a coarse paste. Use sparingly; it’s strong! Try this recipe – Mediterranean Tapenade Roll Ups
  2. Hummus: Truly one of the great culinary inventions. Mix four parts well-cooked or canned chickpeas in a food processor with one part tahini. Add garlic and a splash of cumin, along with as much olive oil as needed. Stir in lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste; garnish with olive oil. Try Hummus Garbanzo Bean Dip
  3. Looking for something sweet? Try a Strawberry Fruit Dip: In a medium bowl, mix eight ounces of strawberry-flavored cream cheese with seven ounces marshmallow crème until well blended. Chill in the refrigerator approximately one hour before serving. It’s great for dipping fruit! Or try this version of Strawberry Fruit Dip
  4. Seven Layer Dip
  5. Texas Caviar
