From classic (and ultimate!) guacamoles to fiery salsas and homemade hummus, these are the dip recipes you’ll want to make for the party, for game night, or just hanging out.

  • Recipe

    Homemade Potato Chips

    Homemade chips are crisper, fresher, and just plain better than store-bought. They’re less greasy, and you can control the amount of salt. Because they haven’t been lingering on a shelf, they taste more like potato.
  • Recipe

    Classic Guacamole

    Roberto Santibañez’s classic guac is THE guac lover’s guac. Big chunks of avocado ensure optimum texture and you’ll salt and squeeze (the lime, of course) to taste, so it’s perfect every time.
  • Recipe

    Chipotle Black Bean Dip

    Beans provide the creaminess in this healthier-than-you-think dip, which has a smoky, spicy kick.
  • Recipe

    Barbecue Potato Chips

    This much-loved twist on basic homemade potato chips is smoky, sweet, spicy...sure, they'll turn your fingertips red, but we guarantee it's worth it.
  • Recipe

    Creamy Crab and Artichoke Dip

    Splurge on fresh jumbo lump crabmeat for this tasty dip or, for a less expensive option, use pasteurized “special” crabmeat from the canned seafood aisle.
  • Recipe

    Sour Cream and Onion Potato Chips

    The seasoning mix gives your homemade potato chips that familiar tangy, oniony flavor of your favorite store-bought chips (only much fresher and more potato-y).
  • Recipe

    Feta-Dill Dip

    Cool, creamy, and tangy—this dip makes a perfect foil for salty, crisp Homemade Potato Chips.
  • Recipe

    Hummus with Mellow Garlic & Cumin

    Homemade hummus is simple to make, and it tastes much better than the mediocre and overpriced stuff sold in supermarkets. A gently cooked garlic infuses the olive oil and keeps the flavor in balance.
  • Recipe

    Golden Onion & Thyme Dip

    One taste of this easy fresh dip on a sturdy chip or tortilla, and you'll wonder why anyone would use a powdery, over-salted soup mix dip.
  • Recipe

    Roasted Red Pepper Dip

    Smoky and sultry, this is a sophisticated dip for pairing with chips. You can roast the peppers yourself or use jarred.
  • Recipe

    Blue Cheese-Smoked Amond Guacamole

    Piquant blue cheese and buttery avocado are a great pair—just think of Cobb salad. Smoked almonds, available at grocery stores, add even more depth for a rich guacamole that’s hard to stop eating.
  • Recipe

    French Onion Dip

    Here’s a fresher version of the dried-soup-mix dip we all love. Thinly sliced onions are cooked until golden-brown, then combined with a base of cream cheese, sour cream, and mayonnaise.
  • Recipe

    Roasted Red Pepper and White Bean Dip with Toasted Pitas

    Smoky-sweet roasted red peppers star in this creamy party-worthy dip.
  • Recipe

    Herb and Buttermilk Ranch Dip

    This classic, creamy-tangy dip is delicious with potato chips, for sure, but we won’t tell if you also use this dip for vegetables; it’s good with those, too.
  • Recipe

    Seafood Guacamole

    Overflowing with chunks of crab and shrimp or lobster, this riff on classic guacamole can easily stand alone as an appetizer. The sweet seafood and orange juice balance an extra kick of heat from additional chile and chipotle.
  • Recipe

    Fiery Green Tomato Salsa

    Grill or broil the green tomatoes and jalapeños to bring out the flavor in this tasty salsa. Serve with grilled chicken or fish, fajitas, or a bowl of corn tortilla chips.
  • Recipe

    Cucumber-Yogurt Dip (Tzatziki)

    Aside from being a great party dip, tzatziki is also delicious served with roasted or grilled meats, or with the lamb meatballs.
  • Recipe

    Edamame Hummus with Spiced Pita Chips

    This fresh green, creamy dip has all the classic hummus flavors of garlic, cumin, and lemon. But it is light on the cumin and garlic in favor of a big citrus punch.
  • Recipe

    Spicy Red Lentil Dip

    Because red lentils are so much smaller than garbanzo beans, they yield a smoother dip—silky smooth, in fact.
  • Recipe

    Warm Black Bean & Chipotle Dip

    This is a great party dip that can be fully assembled up to two days ahead. Keep covered and refrigerated until ready to bake.
  • Recipe

    Roasted Red Pepper & Walnut Dip with Pomegranate Molasses

    Variations of this dip, called muhammara, are made throughout the eastern Mediterranean region. Walnuts and pomegranate molasses are constants, but the types and numbers of chiles can vary.
  • Recipe

    Baba Ghanouj (Eggplant & Tahini Purée)

    One reviewer calls this recipe “positively awesome,” and it is. Roasting the eggplant on the grates of a gas stove will give you the best flavor, but you can also do it on a grill, under the broiler, or in a hot oven, too.
  • Recipe

    Cucumber-Pineapple Guacamole

    This chunky mix is more like a salad or salsa than the classic guacamole dip. Its cool, refreshing flavors are good with chips or spooned over grilled fish.
