If there’s one thing we here at PinkBlush have been loving lately (besides spring fashion) it’s food-related holidays. Who needs bikini season when there’s everything from national waffle day to chocolate and salted carmel appreciation hours? Food holidays help us feel festive and get into the soul food mood, bonding with friends, co-workers and loved ones over the same appreciation for delicious offerings. While March is well known for St. Patricks Day and all things green, we thought we’d share a less-appreciated yet equally yummy holiday, National Chips & Dip day!
Celebrated on March 23rd, we’re super excited about this super snacking holiday, and to get into the spirit, thought we’d share five must have chips & dip recipes that would be ideal for celebrating these amazing jubilee in perfect dipping harmony.
Carmelized Onion Dip
Created By: Kailley’s Kitchen
Something’s should never be remade, like classic movies and awful recipes, but luckily this recipe isn’t like that. A refreshing remake on the classic onion dip, this version provides a deliciously savory snack perfect for double dipping!
Plantain Chips & Salsa
Created By: Running To The Kitchen
Hola, tropical paradise in foodie form! It’s not often you think of fruit and veggies when you hear chips and dip, but why not!?! We’re loving this vacation-inspired snack made with baked plantains and pepper orange chunky salsa. Made in only 25 minutes from start to finish, this recipe can be made quicker than you can listen to Jimmy Buffet’s Meet Me In Margaritaville.
Baked Wonton Chips With Corn Salsa
Created By: Diethood
If you’ve never tried corn salsa before, you don’t know what you’re missing out on! It’s heavenly as a topping for anything from fish tacos, or paired with traditional crisps but a larger revelation comes from this however, combining the epic corn salsa with baked wonton chips! The wonton wrappers provide a light, unmatched crunch that pairs beautifully with the corn salsa for an amazing treat that can be enjoyed year round, but especially during these springtime months. Great as a snack, or an appetizer before a seafood dish, it’s best to make double servings of these bad boys as they get snatched up quickly!
Hummus Guacamole Dip
Created By: This Week For Dinner
Wondering what tastes better than hummus and guacamole? Having hummus and guacamole together! The flavors blend together beautifully and the best part is this dip is healthy while tasting decadent! Made in just a few minutes, you can’t go wrong with this party pleasing snack.
Homemade Funfetti Dip With Teddy Grahams
Created By: Eat Yourself Skinny
Who says all chips and dips need to be appetizers? Say hello, to the dessert dip you never knew you needed in your life: homemade funfetti cake dip with homemade Teddy Grahams which together create: the ultimate homemade dunkarros! According to Kelly, the creator behind this goodness, it’s the greatest party ever in your mouth and we have to agree. Made with only three ingredients: cake mix, light cool whip and all natural plain nonfat yogurt, this dip tastes sweet but is not all that unhealthy either! Feel free to indulge in this snack all your want, as you can have 1/4 a cup of this dip for just 105 calories, but who are we kidding, calories don’t count on holidays, right?
