A different dip for everyone

I was at the "Better Than Bouillon" site. Saw an interesting recipe for a dip.



One tsp. of BTB (flavor your choice) and one pint of sour cream. With their low sodium flavors, and new flavors coming out, you can get a lot of new ideas for dips. Even for Vegans. They have a low sodium of roasted vegetables flavor. And they are coming out soon with Roasted Garlic. Now that one interests me.

A packet of Hidden Valley Ranch added to 8 oz sour cream, with vege crudités. This has been around since the late 1980s at least. Still pretty good though the last time I made it a couple or 3 years ago.

Is this a thread for dip ideas? Oooohh, I have some!

A packet of Good Seasons Italian dressing mix with a pint of (some mixture of sour cream/plain yogurt/mayo) and 1/4 cup each minced red and green bell peppers.

Packet of Hidden Valley Ranch mixed with softened cream cheese, 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese and 1/2 cup beer. This can be molded into shapes like a Christmas tree or a football for a Super Bowl party and then decorated with veggies and cheese.

Good old spinach-artichoke dip - cream cheese, thawed frozen spinach, drained chopped canned artichoke hearts, salt, pepper and a pinch of cayenne. Healthy!

I usually mix up a packet of Lipton Recipe Secrets Vegetable Soup, a pint of sour cream, a dash of cayenne and a squirt of Worcestershire sauce.

Velveeta Beer Dip used to be really popular around our old neighborhood. We would basically mix a 2# brick of Velveeta with a bottle of beer and pour it into the hollowed-out shell of pumpernickel bread, using the chunks from the innards for scooping. I just googled it now, though, and found two new-and-improved versions. I just might have to try a smaller version of each of these.

My mom would make a dip with sour cream and beef bouillon. We liked it with celery sticks. She would soften a cube in just enough water to make a paste and mix it with the sour cream. I have BTB here and never thought to use it like that!

Gee, I am so glad I started this thread. Keep the ideas coming folks. Perfect for party time for Christmas, Hanukah, Quwanza and New Years parties.

Good idea for a thread, Addie! A can of Rotel mixed with cream cheese, nuked, always disappears fast. We like Rotel nuked with Velveeta too.

The ever-popular Seven-Layer Dip. I use:

1 - refried beans
2 - sour cream mixed with 2 tbsp taco seasoning
3 - guacamole
4 - shredded lettuce
5 - diced tomato
6 - salsa
7 - shredded sharp cheddar
7.5 - garnish with minced green onions

Serve with tortilla chips.
