You could have a Super Bowl party without dip and Super Bowl snacks. You could also have a campfire without s’mores, a movie without popcorn or pie without ice cream. But why do that to yourself? From cool, creamy guac to tangy pimiento cheese dip, you have an endless variety of scoopable party dip recipes to choose from.
Since dips are super simple to make in large batches, they make a great easy appetizer or finger food at your next get-together. Heck, make them the entire meal: We’ve even got a few dessert dips in case you want to finish on a sweet note. Stick to the classics, like gooey spinach-artichoke or crab dip, or try something new-to-you: We love a bright, sumac-laden Turkish muhammara or funky Korean ssamjang. There are even vegan options, with a base of creamy avocado, nuts or legumes.
While these are all ideal for a group, you definitely don’t have to wait for a party to make them. We love having a batch of homemade hummus in the fridge for dipping (pro-tip: this makes for an excellent, low-effort snack for kids). So whether it’s Super Bowl Sunday or a random Tuesday night, go grab your favorite carb or veggie and get munching.
