A great homemade chip dip makes a fantastic snack for casual parties, Super Bowl watching, movie night, or any time you want a quick and easy snack. This dip is incredibly flavorful yet so simple to make, it will be your new go-to snack recipe! 

We love a good appetizer and snack spread to create a fun food atmosphere for any occasion. In addition to chip dip, Soft Pretzel Bites with Cheddar Sauce are always a crowd pleaser. Add a sheet pan of Quesadillas or Sheet Pan Nachos and you can turn appetizers into a whole meal!

CHIP DIP INGREDIENTS

chip dip raw ingredients that are labeled

You will need:

  • 1 container (250g) herb and garlic cream cheese, softened
  • 1 ½ tablespoons dry Ranch dressing mix
  • ½ cup sour cream

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

Veggies: Try serving this dip with fresh veggies! Slice carrots, celery, colorful bell peppers, and cucumbers and place them on a plate with the dip for a delicious way to enjoy crunchy vegetables. 

Other Cream Cheese: If you can’t find the herb & garlic variety of cream cheese, try the chive & onion or other similar savory cream cheese.

The Best Chips: Typically, you would serve chip dip with potato chips; either classic or wavy is perfect. But you might also enjoy bagel chips, pita chips, pretzels, or kettle cooked potato chips.

HOW TO MAKE THIS CHIP DIP RECIPE

STEP ONE: To soften cream cheese, leave it out at room temperature for 30 minutes. 

PRO TIP: It’s not best to microwave cream cheese to soften it because it will burn incredibly easily and usually over-softens in some spots while remaining firm in others. Plan a little bit ahead and get the cream cheese out of the fridge at least 30 minutes before you use it for this recipe.

STEP TWO: In a small bowl add softened cream cheese, dry seasoning mix, and sour cream.

STEP THREE: Stir together until well combined.

STEP FOUR: Cover with food safe plastic wrap and refrigerate for two hours before serving.

STORAGE

IN FRIDGE: Store the dip in an airtight food storage container in the refrigerator for up to three days. 

IN FREEZER: Due to the high cream cheese and sour cream content, this chip dip does not freeze well.
