You're suddenly on appetizer duty for the next holiday get-together or the next tailgating party. You want to bring something unique, but you don't have the time to go full-fledged Martha Stewart. This simple Cheddar Bacon Ranch Dip (paired with some unique + delicious chips) is the solution you've been waiting for.
Appetizers are one of my favorite things about holiday parties and tailgating. I'm a snacker and a grazer so appetizers are the way to my heart. Plus, it's so much easier to mingle and catch up with people over snacks than a three course meal.
While I love some crackers and cheese, or skewers, or pinwheels, or even deviled eggs – I'm a dip girl.
And I love bringing something more than just your usual veggie tray with dip to a family get-together. Don't get me wrong – veggie dip is good. Especially this veggie cream cheese dip. But it can be a little boring.
Which is where this Cheddar Bacon Ranch Dip comes in. This dip is anything but boring.
The name of this dip really speaks for itself. It has bacon, ranch and cheddar. Perfect match made in droolworthy heaven, right?
Add in some green onions and water chestnuts for crunch and hellllooo deliciousness. It's salty, cheesy, a little crunchy and super irresistible.
One of the reasons I love this Cheddar Bacon Ranch Dip is that it tastes even better once it sits for at least a few hours, if not overnight. No more last minute prep or need for assembly right before the party. And if you're looking to step this chip dip up a notch, pair it with Deep River Snacks Kettle Chips. Now we're really talking about the perfect snack or appetizer.
I love a good kettle chip. But Deep River Snacks Kettle Chips go waaaay beyond just good. These crunchy chips are non-GMO, MSG free, and allergy friendly thanks to their nut-free facility. Not only that, but their snacks are made from simple ingredients (six of their snacks include four ingredient or less – LOVE this!) Deep River Snacks also practice sustainability and only cook in sunflower oil. Why does the last part matter? It means the chip is always cooked in the same type of oil and versus an oil blend which can shift depending on market fluctuations. This means you always get the same high quality, super delicious chip. YUM!
Deep River Snacks gives a chip about crafting the world’s best tasting chips and their dedication to their brand shows it. I also love that each bag features special charity partners that have touched the life of a Deep River Snacks employee. Can't get any better, right? Wrrrrong! Their flavors are equally delicious and unique. They've got your standards like Original Sea Salt, Salt and Cracked Pepper, Sea Salt and Vinegar. Tasty, right?
But then they've got some unique and fun ones like Ninja Ginger, Sweet Maui Onion, Black Truffle and Zesty Jalapeño. These are where it's at. I can't recommend the Sweet Maui Onion or the Ninja Ginger enough. They take a fantastic, crunchy kettle chip and turn it into a chip that packs plenty of flavor in each bite. My mouth is watering just thinking about them!
