Sun-Dried Tomato Dip Recipe (1)

I’ve always said that if desserts are my favorite food group, then appetizers come in a very close second place. I adore snack food, party food, and game day food. More than anything, I love dips! Give me a big bowl of chips and various creamy dips, and I won’t need lunch or dinner. While Thanksgiving and Christmas are my two favorite food-centric times of the year, the Super Bowl definitely falls next in line. Snacks, snacks, and more snacks! This week I’ll be sharing some new recipes with you that are perfect for your Super Bowl party. Not only are they delicious, but they’re all incredibly quick and easy to make. That’s key when hosting a bash, right?

This year for Christmas, my Chief Culinary Consultant and I spent Christmas Eve at my mom’s house, and then hosted his parents and brother for dinner on Christmas day. My mother-in-law brought this dip over and, seriously, I almost ate the entire bowl before we had dinner. I could not stop. Talk about addicting! Luckily, there was a little bit leftover, and I got to sneak it out of the fridge the next day and polish it off!

Confession time – I’m not the biggest fan of sun-dried tomatoes; I find the flavor and texture to be a little weird. However, in this dip, it just works. The flavor is fantastic and the consistency is perfectly smooth and creamy. We originally had this dip with whole wheat crackers (have I mentioned that I have a hopeless addiction to Toasteds Harvest Wheat crackers?), but after having leftovers and then this new batch, I decided that my favorite thing to eat this with is pretzels. However, you could totally go the crackers route, or use carrot sticks, tortilla chips, or anything else you love to dip into creamy goodness.

I have a long list of favorite dips, and this one is definitely going into my regular rotation for parties!

    The dip was fantastic. Can I freeze it?

    • Michelle Reply

      Hi Sandy, So glad you enjoyed it! I’ve never tried freezing it, I’m not sure how it would thaw.

    I made this today for a Spring Tea event at church. (Technically, my teenage son made it because it’s SO easy.) The ladies who sat at my table were CRAZY for it. Even the non-foodies (who are slightly scared of vegetables or anything but ranch dressing) were calling their friends over to taste it! A few of them were committed to testing it with every single thing we provided for dipping. (carrots, pretzels, crackers, green beans, snow peas, and bell pepper) There were no losers in that test. They even started planning alternative uses like sandwiches, garlic bread, celery stuffing, etc. Your recipe made me a hero. Thanks!

    Mmm this looks so freaking good. I love sundried tomatoes!

  15. Laura (Tutti Dolci) Reply

    I love sun dried tomatoes, I bet they add an incredible smoky flavor to this dip!

  16. Lisa Reply

    How spicy would that hot sauce make it? I think that medium salsa is spicy! Usually, I buy mild anything.

    • Michelle Reply

      Hi Lisa, I wouldn’t consider this dip spicy (at most, like a mild salsa). The hot sauce gives it the perfect kick of flavor.

  17. Mimi Reply

    I love love the addition of hot sauce in your version of this dip! Yum!

  18. Jessica @ A Kitchen Addiction Reply

  21. Chrissy Reply

    Been making a similiar dip for years, but add garlic and fresh basil. It’s addictive, but so easy that you have to make it!
    I stumbled upon you blog about 3 months ago and love it!

  22. Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers Reply

    Yum! What a great combo of flavors! This would be great for scooping my pretzels in!

    Gorgeous dip! I’m just like you, I could quite happily eat appetisers all day long :) I love sun-dried tomatoes and I love creamy dips, so this is right up my street! Thanks!

  24. Becca @ Crumbs Reply

    I love sun dried tomatoes and have yet to make my first dip – this could be the one!

    • Ellen Reply

      I love dips too! Almost too much-I have a tendency, when left alone, to straight-up eat them with a spoon. I also am a bug fan of the taste of sundries tomatoes, so this dip is up my alley!

  25. Averie @ Averie Cooks Reply

    Cream cheese, mayo, and sour cream. We’re off to a great start! :)

    And I actually love sundried tomatoes. I would inhale this stuff! Pinned
