February is not just about Valentine’s Day. The Super Bowl is coming up on the 3rd!! Now is the time to start looking for quick and easy recipes to feed your party-goers. My personal favorite party foods are dips. They are so easy to make and stretch far.
While looking for a few recipes for game day, I came across several dips that were low budget and have minimal preparation.
Loaded Baked Potato Dip
This first recipe is from Baked Bree. On the website, there are step-by-step pictures of how to mix the ingredients together. There are only 5 items that you will need to purchase to make this yummy Loaded Baked Potato Dip: Bacon, Sour Cream, Chives, Cheese, and the hot sauce of your choice. This dip is, of course, perfect paired with potato chips.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip
This next recipe will appeal to those with a sweet tooth. Any recipe that calls for semi-sweet chocolate chips, vanilla, powdered sugar, and cream cheese certainly gets my attention. This one involves little effort and is sure to be friendly on your wallet. You can find the original recipe for this Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip at How Sweet It Is. You might want to sample this dip before you put it out for your guests because it will go fast! This dip can be served with Vanilla Wafers, Graham Crackers, Animal Crackers, and even fresh fruit.
You cannot pass up this guacamole recipe! The amount of cilantro, lime, or serrano peppers can be varied depending on your taste. In order to keep the guacamole from turning brown, add a splash of lemon juice.
**When deseeding the serranos wear gloves in order to prevent your hands from retaining the oils from the pepper.
You can garnish the guacamole with extra cilantro or chopped up tomatoes.

Bacon Cheese Dip
I could not write about dips without mentioning one that contains two of my favorite ingredients: BACON and CHEESE. The name of this dip is none other than Bacon Cheese Dip. The original recipe can be found at Life’s Ambrosia. This would be attractive and yummy served in a bread bowl. You can always serve it with chips or crackers, if you want something a little less fancy. Either way you dish it up, your guest will love it!
Sweet Pumpkin Dip
I am not ready to let go of autumn yet, so as part of my protest I am recommending this Sweet Pumpkin Dip. The best part about this recipe is that it is budget-friendly and only takes a few minutes to prepare. I would set out some type of cookies and whip cream to accompany this party food.
