Make your own dip mixes – Part 6

Hi everyone. Be sure to eat your veggies, with dip of course!!!

I’m back to the Craft Fairy Series offering ideas for making crafts your business.  Every time I am shopping at a craft fair or show there is someone there (usually more than one vendor) selling dip mixes.  Why?  Because they are easy to make.  Inexpensive to make and are big sellers.  I recently paid $10 for 3 little packets of dip mix that cost pennies to make.  I wanted to see if they were better than mine.  They weren’t.  Quite the opposite, I think my recipes were better.

If you need a quick, easy and sure fire seller at your next craft fair, mix up some of these dip mixes.  You can see all my previous recipes here: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, and Part 5.  Dip mixes also make great gifts.  Or you can just make them and eat them all yourself.  Don’t yell at me if you gain weight though. :)

Dill Dip Mix

  • 2-1/2 tsp dried dill weed
  • 2-1/2 tsp minced onion
  • 1-1/2 tsp Spice Islands Beau Monde Seasonings (My larger local grocery store carries this but if yours does not, you can get it on Amazon – there is a link at the bottom on this page.)
  • 2-1/2 tsp dried parsley

Mix above ingredients and stir  till well blended.  Place in zip lock baggie and seal.

To serve – Mix dip mix with 1 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing and 1 cup sour cream.  Stir till well blended.  Cover at refrigerate at least 4 hours before serving.  Serve with veggies or crackers.

Curry Dip Mix

  • 1 T dried parsley
  • 2 tsp minced onion
  • 2 tsp dried chives
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1-1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp plus 1/8 tsp celery salt
  • 1/4 tsp plus 1/8 tsp celery seed
  • 1/4 tsp plus 1/8 tsp curry
  • 1/8 tsp tumeric
  • 1/8 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Mix all ingredients and stir till well blended.  Place in zip lock baggie and seal.

To serve: Mix dip mix with 2 cups sour cream.  Still till well blended.  Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.  Serve with veggies, chips or crackers.

Bacon & Chili Cheese Dip Mix

  • 1 T plus 3/4 tsp minced onion
  • 2-1/2 tsp bacon bits (You can use real or imitation.  I usually use the imitation because I often make these weeks before I use them and I am fearful that the real bacon won’t stay fresh)
  • 1-1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 2-1/2 tsp Cheddar cheese powder (Again, I can get this at my larger local grocery store but if yours does not carry it, you can get it from Amazon (There is a link at the bottom of this page.)
  • 1-1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Mix all ingredients and stir well.  Place in zip lock baggie and seal.

To serve:  Mix dip mix with 2 cups sour cream.  Stir till well blended.  Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.  Serve with chips, crackers or veggies.

    • Hi,
      I don’t have any recipe for spinach dip. I had someone recently ask that and I did order some dried spinach and I’ve only played with one recipe so far and I didn’t like it. I’m going to keep trying and if I get it right I’ll post it. In the meantime if you discover a recipe, please send it my way so I can post for everyone to try. Thanks for reading and writing.

  1. Question, when selling at shows, do you have to have liability insurance being it is food? I really need to know before I decide to do this. I put on 4 Gift shows per year in Ontario Canada, and would like to sell dips as well, (make myself) as I do know at shows people go to the food booth like a magnet.
    thank you for your help

    • Hi,
      I know nothing about laws in Canada. I couldn’t tell you about the United States either since every state and even city has their own laws and regulations. Information about the United States can usually be found starting with our Small Business Administration. Do you have something similar? If so, I would start there. Sorry I can’ be of any help but food booths are like magnets here too and are always great sellers at craft fairs. Good luck in your venture.

  2. do you have a recipe for dry Guacamole or Tzatziki mixture that I can just mix with yoghurt and cucumber

    appreciate your help



    • Hi Peter,
      I’m sorry I don’t have a dry Guacamole. I have a regular guacamole recipe that I can share if you would want. I have tried to find dry avocado, but haven’t found one yet. Tzatziki, eek. I have never heard of that, give me a clue as to what it is and maybe I can help. Thanks for reading and writing. If I come up with a guacamole, I’ll be sure to post it. Thanks again.
