Food Storage Party Dips

January 30, 2013

Hosting a big Super Bowl Sunday extravaganza? Still trying to figure out what to feed a house full of football fans?

These dips will be a big hit with your crowd. Plus they’re easy to make and 100% of the ingredients are from food storage (so you can party even if the power goes out)!

Steph and I created these recipes in the Emergency Essentials Test Kitchen this week, and they got great reviews from our coworkers--especially the Taco Dip (yum... that one was my personal fave, too).

Happy dipping!

Bacon and Cheddar Dip

 

1 cup water

 

 

Note: All ingredients should be added dry unless otherwise noted.

Combine all dry ingredients except cheddar and bacon. Stir in water until the dip base is smooth. Add the cheddar and bacon, and let sit for 5-10 minutes, until bacon bits are softened. Add additional water as needed to achieve your preferred consistency.

-This dip will thicken as it sits, so you may need to add liquid just before serving (water, milk, or additional beef broth)

-Variation: Omit potato flakes, reduce water by 2 Tbsp. Add liquid as needed before serving.

-Serve with pretzels, crostini, crackers, or chips.

 



Tomato Bacon Dip

1 ½ cups water

 

¼ cup Freeze Dried Tomatoes + just enough water to cover them in small bowl

 

Note: All ingredients should be added dry unless otherwise noted.

Combine all dry ingredients except tomato dices and bacon bits. Mix until smooth. Add tomato dices and bacon bits and mix until fully incorporated into the dip. Add water as needed to achieve desired consistency before serving.

 

Serve with pretzels, crostini, crackers, or chips.

 

 

 

Taco Dip

1 tsp. Provident Pantry Taco Seasoning (or to taste)

1 2/3 cups water

½ cup Taco Mix (TVP)

1 cup Freeze Dried Tomatoes + enough water to cover

 

Note: All ingredients should be added dry unless otherwise noted.

Combine all dry ingredients except the Taco Mix, cheddar, and Tomato dices. Add 1 2/3 cups water, and mix until smooth. Add Taco Mix and cheddar; set aside.

 

Put dry tomato dices in a small bowl and add water until the tomato dices are just covered. Let sit for 5-10 minutes or until hydrated.

 

Pour off about 1/3 of the water from the tomatoes, and add the tomatoes and remaining water to the dip. Mix well. Add liquid before serving as needed.

 

Serve with tortilla chips or crackers.
