No matter the occasion, delicious dips will always make a party better. However, you may not have time to stop by the store to buy dips, or your guests may not like store-bought dips. Fortunately, there are many recipes you can follow to make your own dips that will taste great with chips and appetizers. Here are a few recipes that you can follow to make delicious dips in less than a half-hour.
Lemon Dill Aioli
One delicious dip that will definitely be a hit at your party is lemon dill aioli. To make this dip, all you need are the following ingredients: 1/3 cup of mayonnaise; 1 small clove garlic, minced; 1 tablespoon of olive oil; 1½ teaspoons of fresh lemon juice; and 1 tablespoon of fresh dill. If you don’t have any olive oil on hand or would rather use a milder-tasting oil, you can use avocado oil, grapeseed oil, light olive oil, sunflower oil, peanut oil or canola oil.
To mix the ingredients, a mini-food processor is best. Mini-food processors usually have a small hole in the lid, which makes it possible to have the oil dribble in at a slow and steady speed. If you want to make more than just a small batch of dip, you can also use a standard blender or a hand-held immersion blender. When it comes to the success of this recipe, it is best to drizzle in the oil slowly and use room-temperature ingredients.
5-Minute Bacon Dip
If you’re really pressed for time, you should consider making this 5-Minute Bacon Dip. This dip is made with bacon bits, cheddar cheese, green onions and mayonnaise. If you want to make a healthier dip, you can use sour cream or Greek yogurt to substitute for the mayonnaise. However, the dip will definitely taste best if you use mayonnaise to bring all the other ingredients together. Consider adding slivered almonds to the dip to add a nice crunch.
