Now I am well aware that there may not be very many of us who participate in Ye Olde DipTacular this year, primarily because I gave y’all approximately, oh, four minutes to get recipes together. But I decided that I’d go ahead and put up the post and link because the truth of the matter is that any new dip recipe has the potential to bring sunshine and joy into our lives. And if we happen to find five or maybe even ten new recipes, then that is just gravy. Or an extra cup of grated cheese goodness, as it were.
My favorite new-to-me dip is one that I mentioned here recently. It’s called Swiss Almond Dip, and it’s about sixteen kinds of delicious.
Swiss Almond Dip
from my next door neighbor
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup mayonnaise
3 green onions, chopped
1 pinch ground black pepper
1 pinch ground nutmeg
8 ounces shredded Swiss cheese
1/4 cup sliced almonds
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a food processor, combine the cream cheese, mayonnaise, Swiss cheese, pepper, and the extremely optional nutmeg. Gently stir in chopped green onions. Transfer to small ovenproof glass dish. Sprinkle 1/2 of the almonds on top. Bake for 7 minutes. Stir, and bake for an additional 8 minutes. Sprinkle remaining almonds on top, and serve.
Blue Cheese Avocado Dip
from Come On In
2 tablespoons chopped onion
2 avocados, peeled and pitted
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 cups sour cream
1/2 cup blue cheese, crumbled
salt and pepper to taste
Combine onion, avocados, and lemon juice in food processor. Blend with sour cream, cheese, salt, and pepper. Chill 1 hour. Season to taste and serve with tortilla chips or crackers.
There are also a couple of dip recipes that I cannot wait to try. I found them on Pinterest, and they look absolutely delicious.
All righty, dip fans. Add a link to a blog post with your recipes (please link to the specific post, not just to your general URL). Can’t wait to see (and try) your recipes!
