7 Savory Chip and Dip Combinations
National Day Calendar introduces 7 great Savory Chip and Dip Combinations to kick off your snacking celebrations just right!
If you’re like most people, you love adding a little dip to your chip. Or, maybe you’re one of those who like a little chip with your dip. No matter which category you fall under, one thing is certain – chip and dip is a great combination.
Here are 7 savory chip and dip combinations that you just have to try.
1. Tortilla Chips with Mexican Dip
Tortilla chips go great with salsa but even better with Mexican dip. This dip is made with refried beans, taco sauce, sour cream, avocado dip, cheese, tomatoes, black olives, and lettuce. For a little extra kick, you can also use jalapeno dip.
2. Potato Chips with Onion Dip
For something super simple, but still delicious, potato chips with onion dip is always a winning combination. There are many recipes for onion dip, but most of them contain sour cream, dried onion, onion powder, and garlic powder. Variations of this recipe include French onion dip and caramelized onion dip.
3. Pita Chips with Spinach Artichoke Dip
Pita chips are made from baked or fried pita bread, and they go exceptionally well with artichoke dip. Even if you don’t like artichoke, you’re bound to love this fantastic dip. Made with artichoke hearts, mayo, sour cream, parmesan cheese, and onion, this dip tastes great warm or cold.
4. Fritos with Chili Cheese Dip
Frito is the Spanish word for fried so it makes sense that Fritos are simply fried corn chips. Fritos go great with chili cheese dip, which is super easy to make. The most basic version of chili cheese dip contains only three ingredients: chili, cream cheese, and cheddar. Served warm, this dip provides warmth and comfort on cold or rainy days.
5. Pita Chips with Hummus
Hummus is a Middle Eastern invention but has become extremely popular throughout the world. If you’re looking for a healthy dip, hummus is a great option. Hummus is so healthy, you can eat it every day without feeling guilty! Basic hummus is made with mashed chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, and garlic. There are many different flavors of hummus including sun-dried tomato, red pepper, roasted garlic, and basil pesto. Every flavor goes well with pita chips.
6. Tortillas with Guacamole
It wouldn’t be a true chip and dip list without tortillas and fresh guacamole. This is another dip that is really easy to make as it really only requires a few ingredients: avocados, onion, tomato, and lime. If you want to get fancy, you can also add cilantro and jalapeno pepper. For extra creaminess, add some plain Greek yogurt.
7. Kettle Cooked Potato Chips with Loaded Baked Potato Dip
Since loaded baked potato dip is a little hefty, you’ll need a stronger chip. This is why kettle-cooked chips work really well for this dip. Loaded baked potato dip is made with, yes, you guessed it, potatoes! It also includes all the fixin’s that top a baked potato, like sour cream, chives, bacon, and cheddar cheese.
Which chip and dip combination is your favorite? Which one have you never tried before? We encourage you to try them all as long as you follow one important rule: don’t double dip!
