Tools to make Skillet Dips
Tapas Tips & Tricks
- Prep the mixture in a bowl and then spread in the dip.
- Do not store a cast iron skillet in the refrigerator. Only use enamel coated ones if refrigerating or freezing.
- Be sure mixture is close to room temperature before baking so it cooks evenly.
- If covering the dip with foil while baking, spray it with cooking spray where it’s going to cover the dip. That way the melted cheese won’t stick to it!
- Have a trivet and pot holders handy as the skillet will be hot.
- Do not store leftovers in the skillet. Always move to a safe food storage container.
