How about we start a thread on that topic, every one post a few favorites. I made a new one last night that was OUT OF THIS WORLD, I'll start there [​IMG]

    I love good dips, they can make a party! Here are some of my favorites.

    Plain old onion dip...16 ounces of sour cream and a package of onion soup mix

    1-8 ounce block of cream cheese - chopped into pieces
    4 cups of shredded sharp cheddar cheese
    1 small bunch of green onions - chopped
    1 whole pouch of real bacon bits (I the pouch is maybe 4 or 6 ounces)

    Place sour cream in electric mixer bowl and mix for a few seconds to lubricate the bowl, it makes mixing the cream cheese easier.

    With the mixer running, drop the cream cheese pieces in, mixing well after each addition. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.

    Place in a baking dish and bake at 350° until hot a bubbly.

    Serve hot with Ritz crackers.

    Casa Ole Green Sauce

    4 Avocados
    1 (16 oz.) container Sour Cream
    1 can Rotel tomatoes
    1 Tbsp. Garlic Powder

    I got this one from a nurse I used to work with - she called it Crack Dip because it's addictive:

    1 can chicken breast
    8oz cream cheese softened
    1 cup shredded cheese
    1/2 cup Frank's hotwing sauce (relatively mild hot sauce)
    1/2 cup ranch dressing

    Mix all together & serve with veggie dippers & crackers

    This was from a Kraft Foods website:

    2 cups canned or thawed frozen corn kernels
    8oz cream cheese softened
    1 cup chopped tomato
    1-1/2 cups shredded cheese
    1 tablespon pickled jalapenos chopped
    1/4 teaspoon chili powder

    mix all together & heat until bubbly
    Serve with tortilla chips

    Really easy dip.

    1 can of no bean chilli to each 8oz. package of cream cheese. Heat melt stir well together. Great with cheese dorritos or ritz crackers. Everyone usually loves it....here anyways.
