Your Grandmother’s Dips Reinvented Slideshow

Beer Cheese Dip
This dip first made an appearance in the 1940's down south in Kentucky. People say it was created by someone at Johnny Allman's Restaurant, although some beg to differ. No matter where it was invented, we can't get enough of it, especially our version that we serve in a pumpernickel loaf.
Cheese & Chutney Dip
Chutney's use in the United States dates back to before the 20th century and it was a culinary gift brought from India. Immediately after its arrival in the States, the sweet, tangy condiment became a hit when paired with cheese, as we can see in many historical canapés recipes. As soon as dips became popular, creating a bowl to pair with some buttery crackers was a no-brainer.
Horseradish and Dill Dip
Horseradish has been a popular condiment since ancient times, but as soon as the dip craze picked up in the 1950s, people began to realize it tastes good with sour cream, too. This dip is an easy, no-bake way to serve a few vegetables at your next party.
This is the dip that started it all. After Lipton's Onion Soup Mix hit the commercial grocery store scene in 1952, it was only a matter of time before someone thought to mix it with a little sour cream. While we have an unknown California cook to thank for thinking of it in 1954, our version is homemade. Sorry, Lipton.
While we see salmon toast recipes dating back as far as 1885, smoked salmon, or "lox," did not grace our presence until the 1905, and, along with bagels and cream cheese, became a popular ingredient for dips. This dip is a classic that still makes its way to the coffee table today and is good enough that even the most salmon-adverse will like it.
Spinach and Artichoke Dip
Spinach and artichoke is one of our go-to favorites, and we think it'll become one of yours, too, once you see our recipe. Just a few simple touches to the original recipe makes a cheesy, unforgetable mess to dip your chip into.
