Dips are a major weakness of mine, I’ll be honest. Spoiling my appetite by eating too much dip before dinner is almost its own holiday tradition at this point! And since I know that I’m hardly the only one who has a weakness for dips, I thought I’d put together a list of some of our all-time favorites to share with you! If you’re hosting or attending any holiday parties in the next few days, any one of these dips will make an excellent addition to the food spread. In addition to parties, if you have guests staying with you over the holidays, it can be nice to have a dip or two stored in the fridge that your guests can snack on between meals. Whatever your reason for making them, these dips are sure to satisfy!
Have a favorite dip that isn’t listed here? We’d love to hear about it! Share your dip recipe in a comment at the bottom of this post, and you and your response could be featured in a future blog post!
