Got veggies? Got a party or celebration coming up? Got your grump face on and need to crunch something like potato chips and dip? This Classic Ranch-Style Dip has you covered.
A few days ago I asked my husband what his all-time favorite potato chip dip is. He looked a tad sheepish, then said, “The one with sour cream and a package of French onion soup mix.”
“Yep,” I replied. “That’s my favorite, too. Lipton definitely has a corner on the market when it comes to the perfect chip dip.”
Raise your hand if you agree. Keep ‘um raised, I’m counting. Oh, look! There’s the famous David Libovitz with his hand high in the air. If you don’t believe me, go check out this post on his website. Even among food royalty, the tub of sour cream with the packet of magic oniony flavors mixed into it is a winner.
So, in this DIY crazed society, where can we go from the two-ingredient super wonder which is clearly a potato chip dipping favorite? I think that the best move would be to accept that great things really do come in small packages and take 30 seconds to make a batch for your next get together. The next best move would be to supplement that highly favored French Onion Soup Dip with a few DIY dips of your own.
I have, overnight, become a serious fan of this Classic Ranch-Style Dip. It goes equally well with potato chips and some crudites of choice, which does set it apart from the two-ingredient super power. In my personal private biased opinion that famous French onion soup dip does not taste as lovely on fresh veggies as it does on potato chips. But, this Ranch-style Dip? It’s got your back! Try it with potato chips, vegetable sticks, or right off of your index finger.
For those of you who have read this post all the way to the end, here is a chip tip:
When dispensing potato chips into a bowl, turn the bag upside down and open the bottom of the chip bag. This way, the broken chips will go into the bowl first, leaving the best looking chips on the top. Name that scripture–“…the first shall be last and the last shall be first…” 🙂
