Dips Recipes Easy To Make At Home

Seven-Layer Dips
The great thing about seven layer dip is that you can adjust it to your personal tastes. Now, you could make these in glass tumblers too, but we are pretty casual over here so plastic tumblers are the way we roll. These would be great for watching a football game or for a New Year’s party.
• 1 (16 ounce) can refried beans
• 1 (1 ounce) package taco seasoning
• 1 cup guacamole or make homemade guacamole
• 1 (8 ounce) container sour cream
• 1 cup chunky salsa or pico de gallo; or make homemade pico de gallo
• 1 cup shredded cheddar or Mexican blend cheese
• 2 Roma tomatoes, diced
• 1/2 bunch of green onions, sliced
• 1 (2.25 ounce) can of sliced olives, drained
• 8 (9 ounce) plastic tumblers
• tortilla chips
• In a small bowl mix taco seasoning with refried beans. Some people prefer to mix their taco seasoning with the sour cream layer but I wanted a bright white layer so I did it with the beans.
• Here's how the layers are assembled:
• Layer 1: beans and taco seasoning; Layer 2: sour cream; Layer 3: guacamole; Layer 4: salsa or pico de gallo; Layer 5: cheese; Layer 6: tomatoes; Layer 7: green onions and olives
• In each plastic glass, layer about 2 Tablespoons of the beans, followed by 2 Tablespoons of sour cream, 2 Tablespoons of guacamole, 2 Tablespoons of salsa or pico de gallo, and 2 Tablespoons of cheese. Make sure you drain your salsa or pico to get the excess liquid out before you pour it on. Then top with about 1-2 teaspoons of tomatoes, olives, and green onion (If making ahead of time, wait to add these toppings until shortly before serving).
• Garnish with one tortilla chip. Store in the refrigerator until serving and serve with chips. Makes around 8 individual dips.

• 1 16 oz sour cream
• 1 lb bacon, cooked and crumbled
• 8 oz shredded cheddar cheese
• 1/2 cup chopped green onions or chives
• Combine all the ingredients (saving a little of the cheese, green onions and crumbled bacon for garnishing the top) and put in the refrigerator to let the flavors blend together. This can be prepared a few days earlier than needed and garnished when you’re ready to serve it. By putting bacon, green onions and cheese on top, you are giving everyone a heads up on what’s inside.
This dip is tied with our buffalo chicken dip for the most frequently made dip in our house. Why?
1)It only has 2 ingredients: chili and cream cheese. So easy.
2) It’s delicious. I mean the effort to taste ratio is HUGE.
  •  1 (8 oz) block of softened cream cheese
  •  1 (15 oz) can of high quality chili ( I like Hormel or Dennison )
1. Warm ingredients until blended in a pot on the stove or in the microwave for 1-2 minutes. Serve with corn chips (Fritos).
