Food Storage Recipes: Party Dips

9890

Hosting a big event soon? A Relief Society meeting about Emergency Preparedness, maybe? Or an Oscar Night party? What about a birthday bash for your husband?

Keep your party-goers happy with these crowd-pleasing dips. They're delicious - and they're made from 100 percent food storage ingredients! We developed them in the Emergency Essentials Test Kitchen last week, and they got great reviews (especially the Taco Dip).

It's easy to adjust the flavorings or ingredients to suit your tastes, so give them a try! All you have to do is measure ingredients and add water. No chopping dicing, shredding, crumbling, or any of that nonsense. Enjoy!

Bacon and Cheddar Dip

1 cup water

Note: All ingredients should be added dry unless otherwise noted. Combine all dry ingredients except cheddar and bacon. Stir in water until the dip base is smooth. Add the cheddar and bacon, and let sit for 5-10 minutes, until bacon bits are softened. Add additional water as needed to achieve your preferred consistency.

This dip will thicken as it sits, so you may need to add liquid just before serving (water, milk, or addtional beef broth).

Variation: Omit potato flakes, reduce water by 2 Tbsp. Add liquid as needed before serving.

Serve with pretzels, crostini, crackers, or chips.


Tomato Bacon Dip

1 1/2 cups water

Note: All ingredients should be added dry unless otherwise noted. Combine all dry ingredients except tomato dices and bacon bits. Mix until smooth. Add tomato dices and bacon bits and mix until fully incorporated into the dip. Add water as needed to achieve desired consistency before serving.

Serve with pretzels, crostini, crackers, or chips.


Taco Dip

1 2/3 cups Water
1 cup freeze-dried tomatoes plus enough water to cover

Note: All ingredients should be added dry unless otherwise noted. Combine all dry ingredients except the taco mix, cheddar, and tomato dices. Add 1 2/3 cups water, and mix until smooth. Add taco mix and cheddar; set aside.

Put dry tomato dices in a small bowl and add water until the tomato dices are just covered. Let sit for 5-10 minutes or until hydrated.

Pour off about 1/3 of the water from the tomatoes, and add the tomatoes and remaining water to the dip. Mix well. Add liquid before serving as needed.

Serve with tortilla chips or crackers.
