You’re Invited to ‘Dip Night’ – What are You Bringing, Colorado?
And could you extend that invite to us too?
I don't know about you, but I am a huge fan of dips. You give me a bowl of deliciousness and something to dip into it and I'm a happy camper. From chips and guacamole to sourdough bread and spinach dip... I love it all.
So imagine my delight when I found out about "dip night."
This apparently is a new trend that has been featured all over TikTok. It's a potluck-style get together that involves, you guessed it, dips. And from what I've seen, there are no requirements here. Dips can be creamy, chunky, fruity, cheesy, sweet, spicy... whatever!
And you bet your bottom dollar I will be hosting one of these with plenty of wine, of course.
After discovering my new favorite excuse to host girls' night, I thought about all of the dips I've enjoyed in my life. It would be hard for me to choose just one to showcase. I mean, I love a good spinach dip, but why limit myself to just that?
Luckily, I found this list of 50 Dips for 50 States from the spice company McCormick.
And yes, they have a recipe that would make any Coloradan proud. It's a Mile High Chile Verde Dip. This baby is loaded with cannellini beans, salsa verde and jalapenos. The cream cheese and the Monterey Jack cheese will definitely make this an ooey-gooey, finger-licking delight. It also uses McCormick's White Chicken Chili seasoning mix. I can see this being a favorite at some summer poolside gatherings and football watch parties this fall.
Hurry up and pass me the tortilla chips, I'm suddenly starving!
