These Dips are made with sour cream, cream cheese or mayonnaise and other ingredients, to serve with vegetable sticks, chips, or assorted crackers and more.

Soften the cream cheese at room temperature.

Beat the sour cream and cream cheese on medium speed of a stand mixer.

Refrigerate the dip for at least 30 minutes before serving.

However, it is best if covered and chilled overnight to permeate the flavors.

You get the best flavor if the dip chilled in refrigerator overnight.

Store any leftovers in the refrigerator.

  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened at room temperature

Measure out the Ricotta Cheese and set it aside.

Put the sour cream in a mixing bowl with the minced garlic, chopped onion and dried parsley.

Wash and drain spinach.

Place in a food processor.

Add onion and garlic.

Process on high speed until spinach is chopped and mixed well.

Place cream cheese in a mixing bowl.

Cream on medium speed until light.

Add spinach mixture and beat on high speed until light  and creamy.

May serve immediately, but best if allowed to chill a few hours.

Hot Mexican Bean Dip

  • 4 cups Pinto Beans (or small red beans), drained and mashed

  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped jalapeno peppers

  • 1/3 cup drained liquid from beans

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon liquid Hickory Smoke

  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)

Mix all ingredients together except the bacon and put into a 1 or 1 1/2 quart casserole dish.

Sprinkle bacon on top.

Heat in preheated 350 F. oven for 20 30 minutes until the cheese is melted and the dip is pipping hot.

Remove it from the oven and serve it hot or cold with tortilla chips or crackers of your choice.

Chocolate Dip Recipe

  • 10 oz. semi-sweet chocolate

  • 1/2 cup whole milk

  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a saucepan melt the semi-sweet chocolate on low heat, stirring often.

Add the whole milk, heavy whipping cream and butter.

Turn the heat to medium and stirring often until it is very hot and well mixed, but do not let it come to a boil.

Stir in the vanilla extract.

Pour the dip into a slow cooker and keep it on low heat until ready to serve.

When ready to serve your dipping sauce, use individual heatproof cereal or soup bowls to hold the Dip. 

I like to place beautiful soup bowls on heatproof plates and surround them with the dipping fruits and cake cubes.
