When I Dip, You Dip, We Dip
National Chips and Dip Day, an annual favorite food holiday, is observed every March 23rd. It celebrates a perfect combination loved by many across the globe. Chips and dip are a popular party dish as it is not only favored by most, but also quick and easy to prepare.
Just a few days earlier on March 14, we celebrate National Potato Chip Day, and now we add a partner, the dip. People have been dipping their food for centuries. Hummus-like recipes date back to the 13th century. These are some of the first “dip” recipes found.
Potato chips are not the only mode of celebrating the day. There are tortilla chips, corn chips, pretzel chips, and even Doritos to name a few. After you have chosen your chips, there are dozens of dips to partner with them. There are a variety of dips usually made with sour cream, cheeses, salsas, and seasonings. The combinations are endless. Don’t hesitate to mix up your favorite or try something new!
HOW TO OBSERVE:
In our house we have a joke that a party isn’t a party unless there are Chips and Dip! So Invite some family and friends over and have a chips and dip party! Enjoy one of the following recipes: Queso, Guacamole & Salsa (because these should come in 3’s)
