Autumn calls for many things: pumpkin coffee, colorful changing leaves, and for those who are faithful to sports, game day. And it just wouldn’t feel right sitting down to watch a football game without the appropriate snacks — so it’s important to have a few DIY dip recipes on-hand to help you get your munch on.
While I love a good salsa or a delicious guacamole recipe, I’ll admit that when temperatures get a little cooler, there’s a very specific type of comfort that I crave. That's when it's time to go for cheesy instead of refreshing, and savory instead of sweet. I’ll never turn down a spicy dish, and when it’s paired with a bowl of chips, I simply can’t resist. Whether you prefer to stick to classics like spinach artichoke dip, or you like to try new things, you can’t go wrong with any of these 12 recipes.
These easy dip recipes can feed a hungry crowd, but don’t shy away from whipping up a bowl of something for yourself. Make some beer cheese dip for your next TV binge session, or try out some pizza dip instead of ordering delivery. As long as you have a big bag of chips on hand, it’s bound to be a delicious time.
