Skinny Spinach-Artichoke Dip
By swapping out the mayo and sour cream for Greek yogurt, this version of the ubiquitous classic is slimmed down a little without skimping on flavor.
French Onion Dip
Honestly, the French onion dip you buy at the grocery store can be all over the map. Sometimes you get a tasty tangy accompaniment to your potato chips, other times you end up with bland mayonnaise-y goop. It easy enough to take care of the dip yourself with this great recipe.
Making a good guacamole is easy; making a great one isn’t much harder. It’s all about balancing the flavors so the acid from the lime cuts through the fattiness of the avocado, and the heat of the peppers warms the dip without burning your mouth. (However, if you’re someone who likes a little extra heat, opt for a serrano pepper over a jalapeño.)
Cheesy Bacon Jalepeño Corn Dip
Yeah, we saved you a few calories with the artichoke dip, but it’s time to throw that out window with this rich and delicious crowd-pleaser chocked full of bacon and cream cheese. The diet starts tomorrow.
Crab and Artichoke in a Bread Bowl
The hot sauce and the pepper jack cheese add a really nice kick to this decadent dip. And if you feel like splurging, get some crabs at your local fish market or Whole Foods so the fresh crab flavor really comes through.
All those beautifully chopped-up vegetables are going to seem awfully naked without a good ranch to dip them in. You can combine all of your dry ingredients well in advance. Then, add them to sour cream so you’re not fussing around with a bunch of measurements as guests arrive.
Grab your favorite lager to whip up this rich, soft Bavarian beer cheese. You can dip anything in it, but it’s especially great with soft pretzels like the ones shared in the recipe here.
Grilled Cheese Dip
This more refined queso features three types of cheese: sharp cheddar, monterrey jack and American. And crumbled bacon adds salty and smoky flavors to this gooey deconstruction of a grilled cheese sandwich.
Roasted Curry Cauliflower
Some Super Bowl soirees are a little more refined than others. If you find yourself heading to one of those upscale football parties, this elegant dip will make the perfect plus-one.
Sweet Potato Hummus
Your crudite tray’s new best friend will be this spicy-sweet hummus. While the chipotle pepper and adobo sauce bring some smokiness and heat, the sweet potato gives the hummus a velvety texture.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip
Don’t fumble away a Super Bowl party by not having a winning dessert. This no-bake cookie dough will clinch you the MVP title for sure.
