The basics: Salsa
Chips and salsa go together just as well as cookies and milk. It’s a classic you can’t go wrong with, no matter your mood! We love this Homemade Restaurant Style Salsa by Jessica Gavin. Head to her blog here for the full recipe! Yum—we can already hear the sound of tortilla chips crunching.

For the cheese-lover
Sweet dreams are made of cheese, it’s true. Carsbad Craving’s has a savory recipe for some delicious Brie Spinach Dip. The great thing about this homemade dip is that it’s perfect to prepare the night before—you can just pop it in the oven right before guests arrive or you leave for the party! If there’s anything better than cheese, it’s fresh, hot cheese.

Hummus: Where the heart is
What’s the best thing about hummus? The fact that it can be easily blended with tons of different ingredients, making for so many different flavors. Plus, it’s a healthy option!

An easy, pita chip loving homemade dip at your fingertips.
