National Chip And Dip Day, an annual favorite food holiday, is observed every March 23rd. It celebrates a perfect combination that is loved by many across the country. Chips and dip are a popular party dish as it is not only favored by most but also quick and easy to prepare.
Just a few days earlier on March 14th, we celebrated National Potato Chip Day and now we add a partner, the dip. People have been dipping their food for centuries. There are hummus-like recipes dating back to the 13th century. These are some of the first “dip” recipes that were found.
Potato chips are not the only chips that you can celebrate. There are tortilla chips, corn chips, pretzel chips and even popcorn chips to name a few. After you have chosen your chips, there are dozens of dips to partner with them. There are a variety of dips usually made with sour cream, cheeses, salsas and seasonings. The combinations are endless. Don’t hesitate to mix up your favorite or try something new!
