Dips For Chips, Crackers & Veggies FAQs
Equipment might you need to make these dips
- Slow Cooker – A few of the recipes are made in the slow cooker. Even if you don’t *make* your dip in the slow cooker, it is perfect for serving out of to keep the dip warm. I use my 6 quart but there are smaller slow cookers (3 quart) perfect for dip portions.
- Veggie Chopper – This is one of my favorite kitchen tools.
- Silicone Spatulas – Another favorite, I have these in all sizes.
- Chip & Dip Serving Set – Simple and cute.
What is good to dip plain chips in?
If by plain chips you’re thinking of the thin-cut potato chips sprinkled with sea salt, then I would recommend any of the following dips: french onion dip, ranch dressing dip, sour cream and chive dip, loaded baked potato, or even guacamole.
What is good to dip veggie sticks in?
One of my favorite dips for veggies is a simple homemade hummus! If you want to serve another dip alongside your veggie sticks, a healthy homemade ranch dip goes great as well.
What vegetables go along well with dips?
When making a veggie tray for dips, you want to pick vegetables that are easy to bite into, hold up well to heavy toppings, and have a mild flavor.
Good options for dipping are: carrots, celery sticks, cucumber slices, broccoli florets, cauliflower florets, grape tomatoes, and bell pepper strips.
What are some good cracker dips?
One of my favorite cracker dips is a simple cream cheese-based dip like my garlic and herb dip. A thick dip like my slow cooker buffalo chicken dip or creamy artichoke spinach dip are also great options.
If you wanted to get fanicer, perhaps a smoked salmon pate?
What do you dip corn chips in?
Corn chips are pretty versatile when it comes to dips! You could go with a classic guacamole dip, black bean dip, or salsa. My personal favorite is this easy three-ingredient Rotel Dip with Ground Beef!
What dips go with tortilla chips?
The better question here might be…what dips don’t go with tortilla chips? Tortilla chips are a blank canvas, so you can pretty much dip anything in them. I personally like to stick with traditional Mexican-style dips such as a layered taco dip, queso fundido, or salsa for tortilla chip appetizers! (p.s. If you’ve never had homemade tortilla chips, you’ve got to try my recipe!)
What goes well with pita chips?
What are the best crackers for dips?
You can use pretty much any type of crackers for dips. From Ritz, TownHouse, to Triscuits and Wheat Thins, any type of cracker will do.
So there you have it: my top ten list of homemade dips for chips, crackers, and vegetables!
Whether you are looking for a quick and easy appetizer or something more substantial, I hope that this list has something for you.
