Crackers, toasted bread, crostini, raw vegetables, corn chips, potato chips, pita bread.

How do you store and reheat leftovers?

Store any leftover dip in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Reheat in the microwave or the oven.

Microwave: Scoop dip into a microwave-safe bowl and heat in short intervals. Stir often until heated through.

Oven: Transfer dip to an oven-safe dish. Cover with foil to keep it from drying out. Bake at 350F for 10-15 minutes or until heated through.

Can you freeze it?

While it’s technically possible to freeze Hot Broccoli Dip, the dairy products can separate or become grainy after freezing and thawing. 

If you do need to freeze it, be sure to:

  1. Allow the dip to cool completely before freezing. Freeze in smaller portions to avoid reheating too many times.
  2. Transfer the dip to a freezer-safe container or zip-top bag. Make sure to remove any excess air to prevent freezer burn.
  3. Don’t forget to label the container with the name and date!
  4. When you’re ready to eat, thaw it in the refrigerator overnight.
  5. Reheat the dip gently in the oven or microwave, stirring occasionally to ensure even heating.

Tapas Tips & Tricks

  • Thaw the broccoli if using frozen florets. For fresh, steam until crisp or fork tender.
  • Cut the broccoli into small pieces or evenly sized bites for easier mixing.
  • Add in diced red onion or bell peppers can bring extra flavor and color to the dish.
  • Try your favorite cheeses. Spice it up with pepper jack, parmesan cheese, or make it even creamier with Velveeta cheese.
  • Spice it up with some red pepper flakes or diced jalapeno peppers.
  • Don’t leave out at room temperature for more than 2 hours. Either keep warm in a slow cooker or refrigerate leftovers quickly.
