Sour cream – Use full fat, reduced fat, or fat free. Substitute Greek yogurt if desired.

For the full recipe and detailed instructions, please refer to the recipe card at the bottom of the post.
How do you serve it?
I love mine in a small bowl with a basket of chips or veggies. It’s also a great option for a veggie tray or crudite platter.
Chips: Crunchy potato chips, tortilla chips, kettle chips, pita chips.
Fresh vegetables: Cucumber slices, carrot sticks, celery sticks, sliced bell pepper.
How long can chip dip sit out?
This easy chip dip can sit out at room temperature for up to two hours.
If you need it out longer, I recommend either serving smaller portions and refilling the dish with the remaining dip stored in the fridge or put it in a chilled container.
How long does it last?
This sour cream chip dip will last up to 1 week in the fridge, if you don’t inhale it all in one sitting.
Keep in an airtight container or a serving dish covered tightly with plastic wrap.
While you can freeze it, I don’t recommend it. The texture and consistency of the creamy dip change and get very watery when you thaw it.
It is so easy to make and lasts for a week in the fridge so I don’t typically worry about freezing it.
