Cream Cheese Dips

All the best dips start with a block of cream cheese as the base. It is the star ingredient in so many easy appetizer recipes!

Other basic ingredients in making a simple appetizer recipe, is to mix the tangy cream cheese with sour cream, mayo, or Greek yogurt.

  • Garnishes to top them off with: green onions, bacon bits, cheddar cheese, fresh parsley, are all great choices.
  • Best seasonings to add for more flavor: garlic powder, taco seasoning, onion powder.
  • Perfect to serve for: tailgating, game day, super bowl party, showers, holidays.

Best Dippers for Cream Cheese Dips

Potato Chips, tortilla chips, pita chips, crackers,, pretzels, bagel chips, graham crackers, sliced bell pepper, veggie sticks, fresh fruit, fresh cut veggies.

Tips for the best cream cheese dip

  • Soften the cream cheese to room temperature for best mixing.
  • Combine ingredients in a large bowl with a hand mixer or stand mixer for best results.
  • Give them a little kick with a dash of hot sauce or sprinkle of cayenne pepper.
  • Brighten any creamy dip with a dash of lemon juice.
  • If making a sweet dip recipe, add a little vanilla extract.

How long do they last?

Store any leftover dip in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. I do not recommend freezing the dips. They can lose texture.
