NWR: I need recipes

My dad loves dips and anything he can spread on a cracker. Christmas is at my house this year and I have no idea what to make.

Anyone have something delicious to share? The easier the better =)

    I make that all the time, but I double it, always and only use blue cheese, and I use shredded cheddar cheese.  It's amazing.

    This spinach dip is AMAZING.  It's not healthy, but it's fairly simple to make.  I serve it in a crockpot w/ french bread for dipping.  I use 2 cans of artichoke hearts and a pack of shredded cheese.

    Yeah, a link would help:

  • Do you have a food processor? If you do you can make awesome hummus and salsa. It is really easy too. Let me know if you want recipies. I don't have links, it just all stored in my head.
  • I love dips too.  Another really easy one is a Pineapple Craisin Dip.  It's super easy and really yummy. 

    1 cup shredded swiss cheese
    1 package (8 oz) pineapple cream cheese
    2 tsps. Orange juice
    1/2 cup Craisins

    Mix together and bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes, or until bubbly.  Serve with Wheat Thins or similar cracker.

  • Wow - that buffalo chicken dip sounds awesome!

    Anna - if my dad would eat hummus I would totally make it. However, I dont think he's that adventurous. Now that I think about it, Hubs and I like hummus though...so yeah, sure spill that recipe!!
  • I've heard good things about this one, but I haven't made it yet.

    I'd also like that hummus recipe, please.

    LDYGTR - a tip for the buffalo chicken dip.  Don't use the cans of chicken.  Buy a rotisserie chicken in the deli for $5 and shred that - it makes it taste so much better. 

    But I vote make that for sure.  It's awesome!

    Hm. I've never even thought about that. I just buy the "good" canned chicken and shred it rather than leaving it in chunks

    done.  (good without the olive if peeps don't like em)

  • Warning: I don't measure stuff. These recipies aren't too precise though, so it shouldn't matter.

    Hummus:
    I start by pulsing together about 2 cloves of garlic and a handful of flat leaf parsely in the food processor. They I add a can of drained chickpeas and pulse a few times to mix it up. Next, I add about 2-3 tablespoons of tahini, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, about a teaspoon of cumin, and a shake or two of cayenne, and the juice of half a lemon. I mix that all together for a few seconds and them stream in olive oil until it all comes together.

    It is really easy and takes no time at all. All of the spices and stuff can be adjusted to your tastes. If it tastes weird the first time I recommend trying with a different brand of olive oil. I use Whole Foods olive oil for everything because it is the cheapest (crazy but true) but I don't like the taste in the hummus so I keep a small bottle of something else on hand for this.
  • Haha stacks I'm lazy and always use the canned chicken.  You definitely can tell the difference though.  But it's like the difference between being delicious, and amazing, so I deal with it in order to be lazy! 

    Also, if you happen to have a Kitchen Aid stand mixer, I throw the chicken wing dip in there (sorry, if you're from Buffalo it's not Buffalo wings!) and I let it all mix up in there and it gets extra whipped and it's even better.

  • I always buy a rotisserie chicken for buff chick dip.  I can't do canned chicken.  It weirds me out too much.

  • canned chicken exists?
  • I knew you girls would come through - thanks!

    and yes sweet, innocent, Anna. Canned chicken exists. I used to use Sweet Sue chicken in my chicken and rice. It actually wasn't horrible.

    I totally agree. I make this and it is always a hit. Canned chicken is a scary thought.

  • I call this Laur-Dog's dip (after my college roommate)

    Fiesta ranch powder by Hidden Valley
    8 oz cream cheese
    8 oz sour cream
    1 small can of diced chili's
    2 cups taco cheese

    Mix and enjoy. Great on chips or crackers. Oh, I usually will do either the cream cheese or sour cream low fat.

  • My Grandma always makes the sour cream, green onion, and chipped ham cheese ball. It is very yummy and super simple to make.

    That reminds me - I wanted to make one this year, but forgot the ingredients at the store the other day.
  • An oldie but goodie, and super easy.

    Cheeseball

    2 packets of cheap packaged ham
    Green onions
    2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
    2 packages cream cheese

    Chop up one package of the ham and mix it up with all other ingredients. Roll it into a ball. Chop up the other packet of ham and roll the ball around in the ham. Let it refrigerate. I just use Ritz crackers with it and its delish!

    Yup, that is the one that I mentioned in my post that my Grandma makes every year. I just didn't know the exacty measures. Maybe it is a Buckeye girl thing...lol
  • Beer cheese! You can serve with anything! Crackers, hard pretzels, soft pretzels, bread!

    1 8oz cream cheese (I use 1/3 less fat cream cheese)
    2 cups shredded cheese (I use sharp cheddar)
    1/4 c beer (drink the rest of the can/bottle) Any beer will do, I use different ones all the time!

    Place cream cheese in microwave safe bowl. Soften using the "defrost" mode for 2 minutes. Stir. Add the shredded cheese. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Stir until smooth. (If cheddar not totally melted, heat in 1 minute incriments until blend is smooth).  Add 1/4 cup beer and stir well. It will be slightly runny/soft, but put in the fridge for at least 3 hours before serving. **I have found the beer flavor comes through more if the cheese is made a day or two ahead of time** (I am making it tonight to take to my parents' on Thursday)
