When I Dip You Dip

Tuesday, January 2, 2007

My mom's two classic dips that she serves for company. They're damn tasty, cheap to make, and take all of about, oh 2 minutes to prepare.

The smokey cheese dip is, well, smokey. Plus we add a lot of garlic and spice so it has a lot of kick. The clam dip is muted and will be a hit with anyone who loves the taste of clams.

Smokey Cheese Dip
What You'll Need...
8 oz of cream cheese
1/4 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon of chili powder
1/4 teaspoon of onion salt
1/4 teaspoon of liquid smoke
1 jar of Old English bottled cheese (will probably be in the cracker aisle)
1-4 cloves of garlic

What You'll Do...
Blend together and double fist with crackers or veggies into your face.

Minced Clam Dip
What You'll Need...
8 oz of Neuchatel cheese or cream cheese
8 oz of canned minced clams
1 tablespoon of dry minced onion
1 teaspoon of Worcetershire sauce
fresh chopped parsley (optional)

What You'll Do..
1) Drain minced clams, save the liquid.

2) Mix all the ingredients. Taste and add some of the liquid as needed to taste. Top with freshly minced parsley. Serve with crackers.
