The BEST Chip & Veggie Dip

I've been eating this dip since I was a toddler. It's a long time family classic!
Be ready for it to become a party favorite.

Well it's taken me 10 years to showcase this dip to the world.

Here's the back story.

My Mom has been making this dip for every stinkin' family function since I was a baby sucking down a bottle.  And then well before that. Story has it that she received it from a good friend who found it in a local cookbook.

And the rest is history.

Kinda of.

In our family it is called DELICIOUS DIP.

Yes, I know, weird name, right?  Apparently, we are super creative. When we all travel back home or meet in the middle for any gathering this dip is there.  No questions asked - it just shows up - most often from my Mom, sometimes from my sister, every once in awhile from me.  Nobody asks who is bringing the "delicious dip" we all just assume someone will.

Can you imagine the day it doesn't show up? Earth shattering.

It is served with potato chips {Ruffles or Sterzings most likely} and a variety of chopped veggies, usually carrots.  That's it!

We bring it out shortly before a meal and snack away and then complain to each other as to why we filled up on chips and dip before the main dish.

Yesterday I texted my sister to tell her I was featuring it on the blog today and I needed help with the name.  You see to regular viewers naming a chip dip "delicious dip" is just confusing.  When I tell people about it they often look at me cross-eyed waiting for the name to follow.  They think I'm describing that the dip is delicious.

Which it is.

Are you confused yet?

Plus, Google wouldn't like it if I named a recipe "delicious dip".  There is a whole rhyme and reason to naming recipes so that they will show up in search feeds {bet you didn't know that, huh?}.

In the end we settled on The BEST Chip & Veggie Dip.  Because, well, it is.

Have a I mentioned it takes just a few measly minutes to mix together?  A simple combo of sour cream, mayo, shredded cheeses and seasonings MAKE THIS DIP.

I highly encourage you to let it sit in the fridge for a few hours before diving it, overnight if you have the time.  Those flavors will mingle and dance and just become the most delicious dip you've ever had.

Don't be alarmed if you find yourself in a corner hogging all this stuff to yourself.  Or if you make it a meal {that has happened to me}. Our family has turned so many other families onto this dip over the years to where it has now become a family staple in their house too.

This is also the dip that encourages my kids to double up on their veggies.  If I dice up cucumbers, celery and carrots they are 10x more likely to chown down if this dip is involved.  

And you know what?  I don't care.  In the end they are eating their veggies.

I cannot wait to hear how you guys like it!  Will it become your new family appetizer?  I sure hope so.  We love the stuff.

It's delicious.

The chip & dip recipe my family has been eating for decades! So simple and easy, it comes to each and every gathering and is gone fast.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 1 cup mayo
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 t. Accent seasoning
  • 1/2 t. garlic salt
  • 2 T. dried parsley (enough to make it colorful!)

Instructions:

  1. In a bowl combine the sour cream and mayo.
  2. Add in the seasonings and shredded cheeses, stirring to combine.
  3. Refrigerate for a few hours or overnight for best results.
  4. Serve with potato chips and chopped veggies.

Notes:

I add copious amounts of dried parsley - we like a lot! Some people will also add some dried or fresh dill, but that is not in the original recipe.

  1. What could you substitute for Accent seasoning? I would like to try this as it sounds delicious but I don't have any of that.
