10 Incredibly Delicious Dip Ideas

by Kat Kuehl

Move over fruit platters and cheese plates, because nothing gets the party started like a tasty dip. Whether it's a spicy buffalo chicken variety or some classic guacamole, people always tend to flock around that big bowl of deliciousness at get-togethers. So, it's best to have a stockpile of delicious dip recipes ready to go. Don't even bother bringing a veggie tray to a party. Nobody's going to touch it.

If you were to ever ask me that dreaded question, "What's your favorite food?", my reply would definitely include chips and dip somewhere very high on the list. There's just something about that satisfying crunch of salty chips combined with the gooey, creaminess of a delicious dip. It's heavenly, really. The only downside is that dips are typically considered "shareable". If I had my way, I'd rather not share and just eat it all myself. But, it's a small price to pay.

Needless to say, I'm always game for trying different kinds of dip in the interest of finding a new favorite snack. So, I've rounded up some delectable dip recipes here that run the gamut from hot and spicy to creamy and savory. These may just inspire you to skip the party all together in favor keeping your chips and dip all to yourself. I won't judge.
