1 can chickpeas, rinsed
1 clove garlic
1/4 C. olive oil, plus more for serving
2 TBSP fresh lemon juice
2 TBSP tahini
Salt to taste
1 fresh red pepper, chopped fine
Blend all ingredients in a food processor until smooth.
Baked Potato Dip
1 package bacon
16 oz. sour cream
2 C. sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1/3 C. fresh chives, chopped
2 tsp. hot sauce
Cook bacon over medium heat. Remove from the pan and set it on a paper towel to drain. Crumble the bacon and mix it with the sour cream, cheese, hot sauce and chives, reserving a bit of the bacon and chives for garnish. Cover and refrigerate for one hour. Garnish with reserved bacon and chives and serve. Tip: This can be made 24 hours ahead of time.
Caramelized Onion Dip
3 TBSP butter
2-3 yellow or Vidalia onions, sliced thin
2 garlic cloves, minced
dash of brown sugar (optional)
1/2 C. mayo
1/2 C. sour cream
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. thyme
1 TBSP balsamic vinegar (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the onions and garlic, cook slowly over low heat until caramelized, sprinkling with brown sugar if desired. (They’ll take on a deep, golden-brown hue.) Cream the mayo, sour cream and cream cheese until smooth. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Refrigerate for an hour and serve.
Beer Cheese Dip
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 C. butter
1/4 C. flour
12 oz. beer
6 C. shredded cheddar cheese
Green onion, chopped (for garnish)
Melt butter in a saucepan. Add garlic. Make a roux by adding flour and stirring for 2 or 3 minutes. Add beer and heat until it starts to boil, stirring constantly (the mixture should thicken up). Reduce heat. Add the cheese (1/2 cup at a time) and stir until it’s melted and smooth. Garnish with green onion and serve.
1 can yellow corn, drained
2 cans Mexican corn, drained
1 can green chilies, drained
1 can diced tomatoes/green chilies, drained
1 C. sour cream
1 C. mayo
4 or 5 green onions, chopped
2 C. shredded cheese, cheddar or jack
Mix all ingredients, reserving some green onion for garnish. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour.
1/2 onion, minced
16 oz. sour cream
1/2 C. natural ketchup
1 TBSP Worcestershire
Green onion, chopped, for garnish
Mix all ingredients, cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
Chorizo Queso Fundido
6 oz. chorizo, crumbled, with casings removed
2 1/2 C. Oaxaca, mozzarella, muenster or Monterey Jack cheese
Cilantro for garnish
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cook the chorizo over medium heat until browned, stirring to make sure it doesn’t stick. Place browned chorizo on paper towels to drain. If you’re using the same skillet, drain the excess fat. Or, you can use any oven-safe dish. Place half of the chorizo back in the skillet or your oven-safe dish. Top it with the cheese. Bake for 10-12 minutes until bubbly. Sprinkle remaining chorizo on top. Garnish with cilantro.
