Mix and put in refrigerator. Keeps very well.

Wavy potato chips work best.
I take a can of pork and beans, the bigger one for a large amount of dip, and make some old fashioned stove top baked beans.
In med. sauce pan put in pork-n-beans, 1/4C ketchup, 1 small onion diced, 1/2C brown sugar. Cook on med. heat till starting to boil. (My Aunt used to brown the onion in some bacon grease first to soften them, but for dip I like the crunch and potency of My stove top bean recipe.)
You can also add some browned hamburger, or some bacon bits, ( the real kind!)
Add some salsa, chilli powder,and shredded cheddar to some sour cheam for Fiesta Potato Dip.
(These are also an awesome idea for hollowed out baked potatoes too!)
Here is a quick and easy chip dip recipe that has always gone over with rave reviews from everyone that I have made it for.
1 - 8oz. package cream cheese room temp. (can use the low fat version)
1 - 16 oz. container sour cream (can use low fat or non fat version)
Beat these together till smooth then add what ever flavoring you want.
fresh grated onion or garlic
finely chopped dill pickles
the possibilities are endless

I love flavored chips the most (especially jalapeno, wasabi or cheddar cheese and just dip in sour cream but for plain chips I use:
Lipton powdered onion soup mixed to taste with sour cream.
Velveeta Mexican cheese melted in the microwave and mixed with salsa to taste.
2 parts braunschweiger mixed with 1 part cream cheese.
Hidden Valley powdered Ranch 'Dip' mixed with softened cream cheese and/or sour cream to taste.
As mentioned in an earlier post, the sturdier the chip the better ;-)
My favorite is the onion soup-sour cream, but if you have a Harry and Davids near you, mix a jar of their pepper and onion relish with 2-8 oz. cream cheese (thin with a little milk if needed) and that is really good. Another dip is to heat a can of chili without beans and add a medium package of Velveeta mild Mexican cheese and heat til melted. All of these go together quick.
My favorite and easiest chip dip is one package of cream cheese (low fat version will work just as good and you can use less if needed.) and mix in a little at a time of some garlic salt. It is the easiest thing to make. It is also how I use up the rest of the cream cheese when we have eaten all the bagels. Everyone always comments on how good it is but can't quite place what's in it. The Velveeta and salsa is always good too, like someone previously mentioned.
You can't go wrong with 1 16 oz of sour cream and a package of Liptons onion soup mix (dry). Mix together and it is a HIT!
I like sour cream and salsa as a dip. 8oz of sour cream (the cheaper the better) and add salsa a little at a time til you have the consistency and flavor that suits you. Very easy and very good.
1 cup mayonnaise (low-fat may be used)
1 cup buttermilk
2 Tbsp. green onions, minced (tops only or chives)
1/4 tsp. onion powder or 1 Tbsp. fresh onions, minced
2 tsp. parsley, minced
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/4 tsp. garlic powder or 1/2 to 1 garlic clove, finely minced
1/4 tsp. paprika
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
Combine ingredients in a container with a lid and refrigerate before serving. Makes 2 cups.
For Ranch Dip, use sour cream or yogurt in place of buttermilk.
