Veggie Dip

So, confession time…..I love a good dip! I will eat veggies all day, as long as a yummy dip is involved. I am a dip-aholic. Is there a group meeting for this kind of problem?? Who doesn’t find joy picking up a carrot and dunking it in a dip that is super tasty??

1 cup sour cream
1 cup mayo
1 tsp dried onion
1 TBSP dried parsely
3 tsp beau monde
2 tsp dried dill weed

Mix all of this happiness together….Refrigerate and serve with veggies…or pita chips….or potato chips…



Chipped Beef Dip

I will be the first to admit…..that this is not a super-duper-handsome-dip,…BUT…DANG! It’s super-duper-tasty….and Frito’s make it!…no lame crackers for this one! I recommend the larger of the corn chip family…more dip for the happy mouth!

8 oz cream cheese
2 TBS. milk
2 TBS. minced green onion
2 TBS. minced green pepper
2 packages deli select oven roasted cured beef, diced
1 1/2 tsp garlic salt
1 cup sour cream
1/2 tsp pepper

Mix all together and pour into greased shallow pan. Bake 20 minutes at 350 and inhale with fritos.

Artichoke Dip

1 8oz pkg. cream cheese
1 7oz can diced green chilis (I like my dip with a big kick, if you don’t, use a 4oz can)
1 can artichoke hearts (non-marinated)
1 cup mayo
1 cup parm cheese

Chop artichoke hearts and combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat until cheese is melted. Serve with bread or crackers.

Garlic Artichoke Dip

2 – 14 oz cans artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1 cup shredded colby-jack cheese
1 cup parm cheese
2 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp dried thyme
1 3/4 cups mayo


Combine all ingredients except paprika and stir well, put mixture into non- metal 9×13 pan. Sprinkle with paprika and bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Serve with garlic toasts (crostini).

Brown Sugar Smokies w/ Dipping Sauce


1 (16 ounce) package little smokie sausages
1 pound bacon
1 cup brown sugar, or to taste (I use about 2/3 cup)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut bacon into thirds and wrap each strip around a little sausage. Secure with a toothpick. Arrange the smokies in a baking dish and sprinkle them liberally with brown sugar. Bake until bacon is crisp and the brown sugar melted, about 25 minutes.

Dipping Sauce:
1/4 mayo
1/4 BBQ sauce
2 TBSP brown sugar

Mix all together, and dip away:)
