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.

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.

Make your own dip mix – Part 3

Hi All,

Here are some more tried and true dip mix recipes.  Dip mixes are big sellers at craft fairs and shows, are easy to make and cost very little to put together.  They also make great little gifts for neighbors and teachers.  The mixes are also perfect to keep on hand when you want dip.  The premixed dip at the grocery store  is expensive and doesn’t taste good and have you ever looked at the ingredients?  Even if you mix your own with Hidden Valley Ranch dip mix – which I think tastes good, the ingredients in the mix containing things I can’t pronounce. You can see the ingredients here. Plus the Hidden Valley Ranch Dip is so expensive.  Below is a copycat version of Hidden Valley Ranch Dip that I have made.  It makes a lot, but I like it a lot so it works for me.

CopyCat Hidden Valley Ranch Dip

  • 15 saltines
  • 2 cups dry parsley flakes, minced
  • 1/2 cup instant minced onion
  • 2 tablespoons dry dill weed
  • 1/4 cup onion salt
  • 1/4 cup garlic salt
  • 1/4 cup onion powder
  • 1/4 cup garlic powder

Directions:Dump all ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend until completely powdered.

To Use: combine 1 tablespoons dry mix, 1 cup of may & 1 cup of buttermilk.
