Sour Cream Dip for Chips or Veggies

A tub of sour cream and some basic ingredients are all you need to make this versatile appetizer recipe. Whip it up and throw in the fridge for a while so the flavors blend together nicely and you’re all set. 

I’m a big fan of hot and savory dip recipes like my Taco Dip with Meat. But sometimes, you need something that can just be made ahead, kept cold and travels well. This recipe fits the bill in those cases.

Tips for Sour Cream Dip

The key to this dip is making sure it has time to chill. Trust me, do not skip this step.

This dip will last in the fridge for up to a week in a tightly covered container. 

Sour cream shouldn’t be left our for more than 2 hours at room temperature so the same goes for this dip. If you’re serving at a party or potluck where it may sit our longer, you could put the serving bowl on ice to keep cold or use a Dip Chiller. Just remember to replace the ice as it melts. 

Dipper ideas:

  • Chips (ruffle potato chips are my favorite)
  • Crackers
  • Veggies such as: broccoli, carrots, peppers, asparagus, celery, cucumbers

How to Make Sour Cream Dip 

Step 1: Add the tub of sour cream to a bowl 

Step 2: Add in the remaining ingredients and stir together.

      I would like to try this but I dont have any dry mustard. Does this alter the taste much if I omit it?

          I just made it I bent the rules because I didn’t have a full thing of sour cream dry mustard and I didn’t put it in for 2 hours an it taste better than in store.

    Incredible how quickly you can whip this dip. I can see how this recipe can easily save a gathering if things go wrong. And the consistency is just great.

    We just moved, are still unpacking, and I can’t find anything when I need it. Can’t find a packet of the onion mix we all typically go for, so I used this recipe. Can’t find dried, minced onion, so used onion powder (a little less than 2 Tbsp. since it’s denser). No parsley, so substituted chopped fresh spinach. Can’t find my Worcestershire sauce, so I used A-1 sauce. Best part is, since I find the onion mix packets way too salty, I controlled the salt! Even with my substitutions, this dip tastes almost exactly like the traditional onion mix packets, only much, much better.

    This was so delicious and I totally agree with other comments, so much better than a pre-made mix and better for you

    A very good from-scratch recipe and much better than any packet mix. I substituted a few tablespoons of fresh finely chopped red onion instead of dried onion, which gave it a bigger flavor punch. Only a used a pinch of kosher salt and a couple of turns of fresh ground black pepper. The overall flavor is much fresher and brighter than what you would get out of a package.

    We didn’t care for this. It was a little too bitter overall. If you add some paprika and a little bit of white cane sugar it helps a little.
