    this is the best dip EVER!

    you need:
    1 cube of frozen spinach (thawed)
    1 cup of sour cream
    1 cup of mayonnaise
    1 package of Dry Vegetable Soup Mix (such as Lipton or Knorrs)

    mix and chill for at least 2 hours...
    i served it in a Hawaiian bread bowl and with veg crisps.

    yum yum

    You want home made? You can get a jar of pesto (or make it - basil, olive oil, pine nuts, garlic and lemon I think lol) and stir in some creme fraiche, makes a nice dip.

    Humous - better off buying it but still quite simple to make.

    Garlic butter - Crush your garlic cloves, mix into butter.. very simple and delicious.

    Simple onion salad - Onion (really?), tomato, cucumber.. mm

    Roasted red pepper & feta dip (for breads, pita, veggies)

    1 jar roasted red peppers, drained (313mL size)
    1/2 (125mL) cup Hellmann's Real or 1/2 The Fat Mayonnaise Type Dressing
    1/4 lb (125g) feta cheese, cubed
    1/4 tsp (2mL) black pepper

    Cut peppers into chunks.
    In food processor or blender, purée pepper chunks. Add mayonnaise, feta cheese and pepper; process until smooth. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.


    Tip:
    For a softer texture, allow dip to come to room temperature before serving.

    Here are two recipes that are great:

    1 can of Stagg Chili (can get at ASDA)
    1 package of Cream Cheese

    slowly melt them together and then eat with Frito's or Tortilla Chips.

    Guacamole
    2-3 ripe Avacodos
    1 package of cream cheese (softened at room temp)
    1/2 cup of mayo
    1/2 cup of cheddar cheese
    1 or 2 tomatos
    season to taste (i like garlic powder or Lawry's Seasoning salt)

    Mash up avacado until it's very fine, combine the cream cheese and mayo. Add cheese and chopped up tomato. Season to taste, very easy and tasty.

    LOL, most of these are american............
    can't get branded ingredients in the UK like Stag chili...

    Used to be a chef, let's see how many I can remember.....

    Spinach Dip:

    2 bags fresh baby spinach leaves
    1 can sliced waterchestnuts
    500g soured cream
    1/2 small packet philly creamcheese
    1/2 tsp nutmeg
    2 cloves crushed garlic
    salt + pepper to taste

    Puree them all together with a stick blender or in a food processor - great with anything to dip in it, bread chunks, veggies, roasted chicken chunks, tortilla chips..... Using fresh spinach and keeping it raw means this dip will be a brigh green, not olive.


    Roasted Red Pepper Dip:

    2 red peppers
    300g philly creamcheese
    3 tbsp grated fresh parmesan (or to taste)
    1/2 bunch fresh basil, shredded
    salt + pepper to taste
    2 tbsp lemon juice

    Heat oven to 200'C put the peppers on a baking tray and sprinkle with veg oil and salt + pepper, roast until soft, let cool slightly and take off the skins. Puree everything together except for the basil, stir that in once everything is smooth - if the peppers are large, add more creamchesse. Great with veg or stuffed into jalapeno peppers or mini profiteroles (empty ones, not filled with custard already!) or piped onto little toast rounds.

    Homous:

    1 400g can chickpeas, drained
    2 cloves garlic, peeled
    2 tbsp sesame paste (tahini)
    salt + pepper to taste
    olive oil
    1/2 bunch basil, shredded
    salt + pepper to taste

    Puree the 1st 3 ingredients together, then start pouring in the olive oil - how much depends on how thick you want it, you can use water as well (not the water from the can) to make it lower calorie. Add slt + pepper and the basil once smooth. You can add in a roasted pepper as well.

    Roasted Butternut Squash Dip:

    Cut a butternut squash in half, then cut slits into the halves, scooping out the seeds. Put in each slit a clove of garlic, or half if they are large - how many depends on how much garlic you want to use. Sprinkle with salt + pepper, drizle with olive oil, then wrap in foil separately. Bake in a 200'C oven35-45 minutes or until soft. Scoop out the flesh, then puree with salt + pepper, grated parmesan, and ground nutmeg. Drizzle in some olive oil to desired thickness.

    Spread over bread slices, sprinkle with more parmesan and grill to melt the cheese. Or use for bread chunks or veggies.

    Satay Dip:

    150g chunky peanut butter (try to use one that doesn't have extra sugar)
    1 400g can coconut milk
    1 tbsp red thai curry paste

    Put in a pot and heat slowly over low heat, can brush over raw meat skewers and bake them, or bake the skewers plain and use as a warm dip..... good on pan-fried sesame-coated tofu chunks as well.

    Salsa:

    1 400g chopped tomatoes
    3 large vine-ripened tomatoes, finely chopped
    2 cloves garlic, crushed
    1/2 bunch coriander, chopped
    1/2 red onion, finely chopped
    1/2 red or green chili, deseeded and very finely chopped
    dash tabasco sauce *
    1 roasted red pepper, finely chopped*
    salt + pepper to taste
    2-3 tbsp olive oil

    Mix everything together, adding in the oil just to coat everything and help it hold together, Should be made in advance and allowed to sit and flavours meld. *Optional

    Guacamole:

    3 ripe avocados, chopped coarsely
    1/2 red onion, finely chopped
    1/2 lime, juice and zest
    1/2 bunch coriander, chopped
    1 tomato, skinned, seeded and finely chopped
    salt + pepper to taste
    Olive oil

    Mix everything together, adding in a little olive oil to help make it more dip-able.

    Smoked salmon Dip:

    1 120g packet smoked salmon ( or a packet of bits)
    300g creamcheese (or more if salmon is salty)
    1/2 packet dill, chopped
    2 tbsp grated parmesan
    2 tbsp lemon juice
    Pepper to taste (NO SALT)

    Puree the smoked salmon and add in everything else except dill. Stir in dill and add in pepper to taste. Doesn't need salt as the smoked salmon is salty enough. Good for spreading on toast or piping on melba toast rounds, or piped into profiteroles.
