There's just something about chips and dip. It's the ultimate party appetizer!
Today I have a super quick and easy sour cream dip recipe for you that only has 6 ingredients. You're welcome 🙂
Chips and dip have always been one of my favorite go-to party foods. It’s a super basic dish, but it’s always the one I gravitate towards at parties before branching out to other things.
And it's also one that seems to go quickly when I host a gathering.
But what if you want to eat a little healthier? You can still enjoy a delicious dip!
Instead of chips and dip, how about veggies and dip? Our easy sour cream dip is so good that it will make your veggies disappear.
If you want to get even healthier, cut fat and add protein by using Greek yogurt instead of the sour cream in this recipe. It's still amazing and better for the waistline (as well as some lactose-intolerant people).
Parent Pro Tip: using dips and dressings with veggies is a great way to help your picky kids get their daily fresh veggies (and fruits) in!
Easy Sour Cream Dip Origins
This recipe came from my cousin Nancy. She used to make this dip and bring it whenever we would see her (or she went to a gathering).
My mom got this recipe from her years ago and also makes it once in a while. In fact, she recently made this recipe for our Thanksgiving family gathering, and it was a hit!
This dip recipe is perfect for any kind of gathering: a big game, a holiday gathering, or even a family get together!
Once you have the necessary herbs in your kitchen (in fact, you likely already have them: dried minced onion, dried parsley, celery powder, & dill weed), you’ll be able to make up this dip for a fraction of the cost of pre-made dip packets.
If you want to make it even easier to make this dip, make a large batch of the dry mix to keep on hand. Simply multiply the ingredients for how many batches you wish to make.
Then, when you are ready to make the dip, mix in 3 1/2 tablespoons of the dry dip mix into 2/3 cup of sour cream and 2/3 cup mayo.

You could also mix up the dry herbs to create homemade food gifts! Be sure to include a small label with the mixing instructions.
