The Best Dips to Serve for Your Golden Globes Viewing Party
Host a Great Party
To help make your party a show-stopper, we rounded up some of the heartiest, tastiest, and most compelling dips we could find. With tempting and decadent treats like creamy hot crab dip to indulge in and simple, zesty chip enhancements like enlightened spicy avocado dip to keep you on your toes, we think that these recipes might just upstage the award show.
Avocado Oven Roasted Tomato and Fresh Ginger Dip
This dip is just as exhilarating as the anticipation built up while waiting to hear the results. The fresh ginger works perfectly with the avocado, making it the dark horse of the party — a delightful and welcomed unexpected winner.
Bacon Avocado Dip
Unlike the plot points in many of the nominated films and series, this dip isn’t too complex. However as with the nominated films and series this year, it leaves an impactful and lasting impression, so we highly recommend serving this easy and tasty dip for your viewing party.
Deviled Guacamole Eggs
Don’t be fooled by the name; this recipe from The Food Charlatan goes far beyond your typical bowl of guacamole. The filling used in these deliciously different deviled eggs can double as a dip for your viewing party if you want to completely wow your guests!
Enlightened Spicy Avocado Dip
There are plenty of “enlightening” films nominated this year, like The Theory of Everything and Boyhood, so it is only appropriate your viewing party food is just as inspiring. This zesty and spicy avocado dip will definitely make your guests feel like A-listers.
Hot Crab Dip
With all those smokin’ hot celebrities walking the red carpet, isn’t it only fitting that to serve a hot and savory dip? The hot crab dip is easy to prepare and is totally malleable to fit your guests' preferences. A simple sprinkle of Old Bay seasoning would add a great New England taste to it or a splash of hot sauce would add a little fire (and serve as a nice homage to the Best Animated Film nominee, How to Train Your Dragon 2).
Mexican Shrimp Dip
This hearty and filling recipe will satisfy your guests no matter how late the awards run. This dip contains cooked salad shrimp beefed up with fiery jalapeno and meaty plum tomatoes, making it more of a mini-meal than a simple dip.
This is a classic dip which makes it perfect for a pastime as traditional as watching the Golden Globes. You can pair this dip with any of your small munchie snacks, or slather it on crostini for a flavorful small bite.
Salmon and cream cheese are a classic pair, much like hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, so it is only fitting that these are the main ingredients in this tasty dip. This simple and classy dip is perfect for noshing and will go perfectly with any dippable appetizer.
Tomatillo Guacamole Dip
Guacamole is always a shoe-in win when it comes to being a party favorite. With the addition of tomatillos, you’re practically just giving the award to this crow-pleasing dip.
Are all of those fabulous dresses and debonaire suits making you reconsider having one more appetizer? You don’t have to worry with this healthy tzatziki dip. You can use it on everything from miniature sandwiches to a raw vegetables.
