Dips For Other Ideas

Everyone loves dips it seems. Some people like spicy dips while others like sweet dips. Sometimes though people buy many dips and they end up accumulating in a "dip drawer." So, you have to ask yourself, other than just dip what else can I make with these?

If you want to make traditional dips you will only need sour cream, mayonnaise, olive oil, cream cheese and Cool Whip depending on if the dip is savory or sweet. You can also use these dip mixes to make savory meals or appetizers. For example a Roasted Garlic & Herb olive oil blend dip mix can make a fantastic shrimp or chicken scampi. By adding the package to 1 cup of olive oil, mixing it with some cooked chicken or shrimp and combining it with some angel hair pasta you have a meal in minutes. Dry olive oil blend dip mixes are fantastic for creating quick and easy meals. You can mix a Bruschetta dip mix with pasta salad instead of mayo to make a light and healthy addition to your meals. Try a Pesto olive oil blend dip mix with some grated cheese, an Italian bread and have a delicious bread dip appetizer with a glass of Merlot.

If you like egg salad or tuna salad you can add some savory Dill dip mix to it to give it flavor and substance. Use the Dill dip mix as a dip for fish! Dips made with mayonnaise and sour cream can also be used on sandwiches and wraps instead of the usual mustard or mayo. Flavors such as Mandarin Orange Chipotle or Southwest Jalapeno make for terrific spreads for sandwiches or wraps. I can remember making tacos and instead of adding sour cream to the tac shells, we used horseradish dip and my family went crazy as we are horseradish lovers.

Dessert mixes make more than just fruit dips or no bake cheesecakes. They make great fillings for cream puffs or frostings for cakes and cupcakes. Have any cream cheese in the fridge? Mix 8 oz with a package of a dessert mix such as Vermont Maple Bacon and have a gourmet bagel spread. Flavors like White Chocolate Raspberry and Pumpkin makes great bagel spreads! Sunday morning bagels never tasted so good!

So, what are you waiting for? Get those dip mixes out of your "dip drawer" and be inventive and creative. You don't know what you can create!
