10 Dip Recipes That Will Win Over a Crowd

March 30, 2015

We've partnered with Garden of Eatin' to share some of our favorite last-minute party appetizers to pair with chips, no forks needed.

March Madness is unpredictable -- some of the top teams get bumped out in the first few rounds, and sometimes underdogs get much further than expected. Full-day marathons of game-watching require quick snacks that you can pull together in a snap (and then take for lunch the next day). Chips and dip are the perfect last-minute play, ready at a moment's notice. Satisfying dips will quell your crowd's hunger and sturdy, crunchy chips will stand up to just about anything you serve them with.
