Salsa is the "go to" dip around here. I love home made, and sometimes make it, but I also buy salsa. My son lives here, and salsa is his favorite veggie! I actually like the store brand at Safeway. It has corn and black beans in it. We like the medium heat.

Dips or dipping sauces, pico de gallo .... are stuff we make at home. We will, on very rare occassions buy Dean's onion dip. I say rare occassions because we rarely buy potato chips anymore.

I usually buy Tostitos brand salsa. Other dips, I make myself. That's because most dips have MSG and/or other weird chemicals, as well as too much salt. Dips are quite easy to make.

I actually have already done that, so have a varied mixture of results. This is for a second opinion from cooks who like to make their own dips / food, thankyou.

Aha, you didn't say that. You wanted to know what brands.

I never considered pico a dip. Probably because I'm always wrapping some up in a tortilla. I think of dips as being more fluid.
Now melt some jalapeno cheese and mix in the pico and you've got one heckuva dip

I don't make dips often. Maybe a couple times/year. The last time I had dip though was just last week. I bought a bag of pretzels and a container of Helluva Good french onion dip for lunch I treat myself every couple years or so.

Chips are something that I don't purchase since I love them and eat too many! So it's easier to just avoid the temptation altogether... The last official dip I made was hummas for some fresh veggies. Guacamole & salsa verde are probably considered dips and I make them both a couple times a month but they are always for egg or meat dishes.

I like making hummus, salsa, guacamole and a simple sour cream and chives dip most.
I make a sweet and spicy mustard dip for cocktail sausages, chili lime dip for Thai Spring rolls, anchovy dip for veggies etc etc.

maybe this is a survey for psychology, and how many people notice others double dipping at parties.
