Crack Dip with Truffle Chips + Feta Artichoke Dip

Dec 12, 2018

Today I have two awesome dip recipes to share.  If you guys are hosting any holiday parties these are always a hit!  Both are super easy to whip together and they can be made ahead time.  Beware though they both are addictive it is hard to restrain myself around these dips.  Enjoy! 

C R A C K  D I P (adapted via Plain Chicken)

1 16 oz container sour cream

1 ranch packet

1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese (I recommend Cracker Barrel and shred yourself)

6 pieces bacon cooked and crumbled

green onions

Truffle chips (you can find at World Market or Trader Joe’s)

Combine the sour cream, ranch packet, shredded cheese, part of the bacon and green onions in a bowl.  Just reserve a few green onions, cheese, and bacon to sprinkle on top to make it look pretty.  we serve ours with Truffle Chips- it is an amazing combo but you could also do Ruffles.

F E T A   A R T I C H O K E   D I P 

1 14 oz artichoke hearts drained and chopped

8 oz feta cheese

1 4oz jar diced pimentos drained

1 cup mayo

1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese (plus more to sprinkle over the top)

1 minced garlic clove

Carrots and Celery + Pita Chips for dipping

Mix first 5 ingredients together and place in a shallow baking dish.  Sprinkle extra Parmesan on top.  Bake at 350 degrees about 25 minutes until bubbly.  Serve with carrots, celery and pita chips.
