Your party guests will enjoy sampling these tasty dips while watching the big game. Try one or more of the top 5 for your next gathering.
5. Cheese dip, of course
Cheese dip is a given, but you can change it up to make it a little less predictable, says Krystle Nicole Russin, author of The Non-Diet Real Cookbook: Easy Recipes to Stay Skinny Eating Anything You Want and Learn How to Cook!
Serve cheese dip with cooked or uncooked veggies -- especially mushrooms, says Russin. "Or improve those tired old chicken wings with one of these dips!"
4. artichoke dip
"This is the absolute best artichoke dip," says Irene St. Onge of 212-EVENTS, a NYC catering and event company.
Mix all ingredients together and add salt and pepper to taste. Bake at 350 degrees for about 35-40 minutes until bubbly and brown on top. Serve with fresh carrots, celery, crackers and small pieces of bread or toast.
3. Guacamole dip
Sure, you can buy guacamole dip, but it tastes so much better when you make it yourself.
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Serve immediately with nacho chips. Substitutions: Use chunky salsa instead of tomatoes. Use lime instead of lemon (both contain acid that keeps the avocados from turning dark).
2. Hot crab dip
Hot crab dip is great for onion or garlic crackers, Italian toast, celery and much more!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients (except paprika) in a medium bowl. Transfer mix to a shallow 9x13 baking dish. Garnish with paprika. Bake 30 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown.
1. Seven-Layer Dip
This beloved dip can be made ahead of time, so it's perfect for parties!
Combine bean dip and taco sauce and spread a 1/4-inch thick layer on a serving platter. In this order, layer sour cream, guacamole dip, cheese, green onions and olives. Cover with plastic wrap and chill at least 4 hours or overnight. Sprinkle the dip with chopped tomato and serve with tortilla chips!
