Chips and dip are classic tailgating fare, and I’ve shared lots of my favorite dip recipes with you already. But I’ve been saving my favorite chip dip recipe for a special occasion, and the Big Game coming up on Sunday seems like a good choice!
I know it’s simple enough to grab a container of dip out of the dairy case, but this chip dip recipe seriously has everything going for it — simple to prepare, creamy with tons of flavor and just plain delicious. And what’s more, it requires just 3 ingredients…
That’s right — just 3 ingredients and 30 seconds is all it takes to get this out of this world chip dip recipe on the table!
The secret is Philadelphia Chive & Onion Cream Cheese, which can be found with the cream cheese spreads at Walmart. It’s what gives this chip dip its fresh flavor and creamy texture. I typically let it sit out for about 30 minutes to soften before preparing this dip, but you can also use it right out of the refrigerator with a hand mixer.
To this you just need to add your favorite sour cream and about a tablespoon of dry ranch dressing mix. Easy-peasy! Oh, and while developing my own homemade dry ranch dressing mix is on my to-do list, for today’s purposes, I just grabbed a packet of Hidden Valley Ranch Dry Ranch Dressing Mix from the salad dressing aisle.
Serve with your favorite brand of potato chips, and watch this delicious chip dip disappear! In fact, you may want to pick up a second container of the cream cheese to make more. If you get the 16-oz. size sour cream, you should have plenty of dry ranch seasoning left for a second batch.
If potato chips and dip aren’t your style, try one of these other amazing dip recipes. I’d tell you my favorite, but they’re ALL my faves…
Whatever dip you’re making, if you’re planning to take it on the road, I’d recommend picking up some of these Chinet chip and dip trays. They eliminate having to leave your favorite chip and dip server behind — just toss them when they’re empty! And believe me, they will be empty if you fill them with this yummy chip dip.
