Looking for a great way to spice up your parties or family get-togethers?
A delicious dip can be an excellent appetizer for any special gathering, whether it’s with family, friends or coworkers. What makes these dips fun is that they are easy to prepare and store, so that when the party starts you can already have the dip prepared and waiting to be served. It can be made the night before so that you have fewer things to worry about on the day of your party.
Some of the most popular dips go great with tortilla chips. These chips have the crunchiness that goes perfectly with a creamy dip, as well as the salty flavor everyone will love. Since the chips are typically made from corn or flour, they tend to have an all-natural taste that complements a variety of dips. Additionally, tortilla chips are sold in many different flavors if you’re looking for one specific kind to serve with your favorite dip. In many cases, tortilla chips are a great choice when you’re searching for something crunchy to pair with your dip.
Because tortilla chips are often paired with Mexican dishes, salsa is one of the most popular dips to go with this kind of chip. In fact, it’s also one of the easiest dips to prepare. First, dice several onions, tomatoes and jalapeno peppers. Combine these into a large dish and add in some olive oil, fresh cilantro, garlic and a splash of lime juice. Many people also prefer to mix in a fruit to their salsa for a bold taste. Popular fruits for a salsa include mangos and peaches. After you have all of your ingredients, mix them together and allow them to chill in your refrigerator. When it’s party time, pull out the salsa and tortilla chips for plenty of snacking fun.
Another great dip for tortilla chips is guacamole:
For this dip, you’ll want avocados, which you can peel and pit before mashing. After the avocados are prepared, add a little diced onion, diced tomatoes and fresh cilantro. Top it off with some minced garlic or lime juice, blend it together and then leave the guacamole in the refrigerator. Like salsa, a guacamole recipe is perfect for events where you want to have some of the food prepared in advance. Set out the guacamole as well as plenty of tortilla chips when the guests arrive.
If you want something a little more unusual, try another type of dip that tastes great with tortilla chips. Some other ideas are seven-layer bean dip, spinach artichoke dip, queso, chili sauce or fruit dips. Any of these dips will taste great with a crunchy, salty tortilla chip. Add a little flavor to your next party by trying one of these fun snack recipes.
