Homemade Chip Dip Ingredients

Ingredients and Variations 

The key to a perfect dip is the combination of creamy ingredients and a little bit of flavor!

DIP BASE – Sour cream and mayonnaise create a rich and smooth base but other creamy ingredients like plain or Greek yogurt can be used in place of the sour cream. Miracle Whip dressing in place of the mayo will give the dip a sweet, tangy flavor.

SEASONINGS – The savory seasonings in this recipe are just a start. Switch up your dip by adding a few tablespoons of ranch or bleu cheese dressing, Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, or maybe go a bit more hot and spicy and stir in a little taco or Cajun seasoning.

ADD-INS – Stir in some shredded cheddar cheese, salsa, chopped black olives, chopped green chiles, or sliced jalapenos. Give homemade chip dip a boost of nutrition by mixing in some shredded carrots or chopped spinach.

Best Dip Tips

  • Use a whisk to make sure the sour cream and mayonnaise are thoroughly mixed together before adding the seasonings.
  • Allowing the dip to chill helps the dry herbs soften up and brings out their best flavor.
