11 quick and easy recipes for our favorite game day dips, perfect for your next party!
This time of year, college football runs this town.
And I mean runs. this. town.
I don’t think we’ve had a single outing where football hasn’t come up so far. While football talk is beyond expected at bars and parties, we weren’t quite expecting the topic to come up [quite heatedly!] at hardware stores, Target, and even my own driveway. Our new neighbors were quick to assess our team status and classify us friends or college football frenemies.
It’s a thing.
One thing everyone can agree on, is the awesomeness of a good dip! An addictive spread can unite even the fiercest of rivals, and these recipes are up for the challenge! With vegan, vegetarian, and t-rex options, there’s a dip for everyone on this list!

What do you do when you want a creamy, luscious dip that’s deliciously dairy-free? Avocados, baby! Pair them with white beans and it’s a match made in dipping heaven. This creamy white bean dip is whipped with garlic, avocado spinach, jalapeno and cilantro for a speedy snack that’s full of flavor.
I guess I should describe the dip for you right? HOT, CREAMY, AND OMGCHEESY! If you ‘re a fan of seafood and cheese you’ll basically want to bathe in this dip. The veggies add fantastic flavor but are diced small enough that they could easily trick your pickiest of friends and family members.
This deli-style veggie dip actually tastes best made the day before — jackpot! — and saves me precious prep time the following day.
Simply whisk together the dip and pop it in the fridge for the following day. You can even slice and wash all your crudités the day before too. With everything prepped and tucked away, all you have to do is toss it all on a plate and get your snack on!
