5 Delicious Dips To Kickstart Your Next Party!
The long weekend is nearly here! You know what that means, don’t you? Time to gather your folks around and throw a nice big party! With the busy schedules that we all complain about, it becomes a tad bit difficult to keep in touch with all our friends. So, to make up for it, get the gang together and unwind as you catch up with each other’s lives.
But I know what you’re thinking. Parties mean party food! Has this got you worried? Don’t be! You don’t have to be cooped up in the kitchen, churning out dish after dish of lip-smacking food. Takeaways and home deliveries exist for a reason, you know? But, if you’re the kind of person who just won’t relax unless there is at least one home-cooked meal sitting on that table, then you’ve come to the right place.
Your solution? A nice big bowl of classic dip, served with a side of chips or pita. Be it hummus or even plain old cheese dip, there’s nothing quite as delicious as some chips and dip, especially after a long week. Ready to get cracking? Scroll on for the 5 tastiest dip recipes for that next party!
1. Jalapeño Popper Dip
I don’t know about you, but I absolutely LOVE jalapeños! Its fiery taste adds that much-needed zing to any and all recipes. Give your guests a taste of this Mexican chilli in the form of delicious dip and watch their eyes light up with delight!
2. Restaurant Style Salsa
When it comes to cooking, there’s nobody I trust more than Laura Vitale. Her recipes are authentic, easy to follow and always end up tasting just great. This restaurant style salsa recipe is super delicious. Serve it with classic tortilla chips, just the way it’s meant to be! You can never go wrong with salsa!
3. Fruit Dip Using Cream Cheese
Calling the girls over for a night of unadulterated fun? Go for this delicious fruit dip. That health-conscious friend we all have, won’t complain about the calories and the cream cheese will simply melt in your mouth, making for a combination that is both healthy AND scrumptious.
I’m the kind of girl who can polish off an entire bowl of hummus by herself! Exaggeration? Erm..maybe a little! But honestly, hummus is such a comforting dip. The taste is thick and rich and when paired with pita bread or crackers, it tastes like paradise in a bowl. The folks at Sorted Food give you two different versions of hummus — one using tinned chickpeas, the other using dried ones. Try it out and see for yourselves!
5. Guacamole Dip
Here’s another recipe by Laura Vitale! Guacamole is also a classic. It’s taste is fresh and tangy and it can really charge up the beginning of any party! You can serve it with nachos or tortilla chips.
