{weekend recipe edition} fruit & vegetable dips

I'm a dipper. I love dipping anything and everything, so yummy dips are important.  :)

In the summer, it's all about the fruits and vegetables, and adding a fun dip can dress them up and your table for family, friends, parties, and BBQ's.  

 Here are a few of my favorites...

Scallion Dip

4 c. sour cream
2 tsp. ground cumin
2 tsp. chili powder
1 lime, juiced
6 chopped green onions
 Salt, and freshly ground pepper

In a large bowl, mix ingredients together.  Top with green onions, sprinkle with chili powder and serve with tortilla chips or vegetables.  **I use A LOT more cumin and chili powder than 2 tsp.  I suggest starting there, then add more to taste if you like a stronger flavor.


Dill Dip
(I {LOVE} this one!)

1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
1-8 oz. carton sour cream
2 T. finely chopped green onion
2-4 T. freshly snipped dill, or 3-4 tsp. dried dillweed (or to taste...I like a lot!)
1/2 tsp. seasoned salt
Milk (optional, if necessary)

In a medium mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, sour cream, dill, green onions, and seasoned salt with an electric mixer on low speend until fluffy. Cover and chill 1-24hours. If dip thickens after chilling, you can stir in 1-2 T. milk if you'd like. Serve with vegetables, crackers, or chips. It's yummy with asparagus. :)


Faux Guacamole Dip

1 carton sour cream
1-1 1/2 packets McCormick Guacamole Seasoning Mix

I discovered this recipe completely by accident.  I was planning to make just an easy dip for lunch using sour cream and a ranch packet, or even an onion soup packet, but somehow I was out of both--which is unusual.  Everyone had their heart set on dip, so I improvised by adding the only seasoning packet I had--one for guacamole.  It was AMAZING!!  I loved the flavor of it, and it quickly became a favorite.  I like more seasonings, so I use more than 1 packet, but I would start with one.  It's yummy with any vegetable, and crackers too!


Fruit Dip

1 package cream cheese
1 can sweetened condensed milk
16 oz. strawberry flavored Cool Whip

Whip condensed milk and softened cream cheese together until smooth, then fold in Cool Whip. Serve with fresh fruit. (I like using regular cool whip too, and adding a little vanilla.)

I'm a dipper too! My fav is 2 can mexicorn and 2 cans green chilies ( not drained) 1 cup each sour cream and mayo and 1 lb of sharp cheddar cheese ( grated). Mix together and then start to add ground red pepper.This stuff must "marry" at least 12 hours before eating. Serve with Fritio dippers. Men love this dip, it tastes like spicy pimento cheese. You will love it and it makes a ton!
