Whether it is a simple snack or part of a big game feast, delicious dip recipes get cheers all around. From creamy, herbaceous options that pair well with veggies to spicy, cheesy options that smother a chip, it is time to line up those bowls for dip-tastic eating enjoyment.  

According to recent surveys, dips are the must have food for any football event. Whether it is a simple French Onion Dip served with chips or a hearty Buffalo Chicken Dip, people cannot get enough of the interactive food. It is almost as if that dip bowl gives people permission to play with their food. Just make sure to avoid spilling on that lucky shirt.  

A dollop that tastes like homemade 

While many people turn to Daisy Sour Cream as the topping for the baked potato or a spoonful on that taco, the food brand wants to make dip time flavorful and easy. The Daisy Sour Cream Dips taste like homemade but require no effort.  

Available in Creamy Ranch Dip and French Onion Dip, the flavors pair with vegetables, chips, or even as a topping for those sliders. Instead of another BBQ sauce, a little French Onion Dip on a burger with some mushrooms and cheese is quite tasty.  

Since these dips taste like they are made from scratch, it fosters the idea that dip is more than just food in a bowl. It is a great way to keep food from going to waste.  

Heluva Good can be heluva great 

While the brand helped everyone countdown to the big game, it is the versatility in its product line that makes people excited. From bold bacon horseradish to a spicy jalapeno cheddar, everyone can have it their way. And, if you haven’t made some pizza bread with those dips, it could become a new game day tradition.  

Get cheesy with dip 

While that cheese plate will always get cheers, a cheese dip can be another great option. Although some people appreciate the simplicity of just cheese and Rotel, a more robust option can be quite enjoyable.  

Check out this cheese dip recipe that features Duke’s Mayo

Game Day Cheese Dip:  

1 tablespoon olive oil 

1 small onion, finely chopped 

1 jalapeño, seeded and finely chopped 

2 cloves garlic, minced 

1 14 ounce can fire roasted diced tomatoes, drained 

1 teaspoon chili powder 

½ teaspoon ground cumin 

½ teaspoon paprika 

¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper (adjust to taste) 

½ cup Duke's Mayonnaise 

8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded 

8 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, shredded 

4 ounces cream cheese, cut into cubes 

Salt and pepper, to taste 

Chips or bread for serving 

2 whole, charred jalapeños (garnish, see note) 


Preheat your 10.25 inch cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add the olive oil and let it heat for one minute. 

Add the chopped onion and jalapeño to the skillet. Sauté for 3-4 minutes until they soften, stirring occasionally. Add the minced garlic and cook for another minute until fragrant. 

Stir in the diced tomatoes, chili powder, cumin, paprika, and cayenne pepper. Cook for 3-4 minutes until the flavors combine and the mixture thickens slightly. 

Reduce the heat to low. Add mayonnaise to the skillet and stir well until fully combined with the tomato mixture. Add cream cheese and stir until fully melted. 

Gradually add the shredded cheeses to the skillet one handful at a time, stirring constantly until all the cheese has melted and the mixture is smooth and creamy. Be careful not to overheat the cheese—it should melt slowly! 

Once the dip is smooth and heated through, remove the skillet from the heat.  Serve warm with chips or bread for dipping. 

Go simple with the ingredients 

Opposite of that recipe, Land O’ Lakes has a simple 4-ingredient Queso Dip. This recipe is a great starting point for a queso dip and one that anyone can master. Plus, if guests prefer more spice, have some extra jalapenos on hand.  

When it comes to game day, delicious dip recipes win every time. Just make sure that the bowl is never empty.
