How to Make Chip Dip
Making chip dip is so easy, I almost feel like I am cheating. Basically just put everything in a bowl and stir it all together. However, to make it easier, better, and creamier, here are a few tricks!
- Use softened cream cheese for the best results.
- Use a spoon to stir it all together.
- Fold the green onions in at the end.
How to Soften Cream Cheese
Quick Method: Fill a glass bowl with water. Microwave on high for 3 minutes. Dump water out. Place hot bowl over a package of cream cheese for about 5 minutes.

Make Ahead and Storage
How to make this recipe ahead of time:
One of the great things about this recipe is it can easily be made ahead and doesn’t hurt the quality of the dip. In fact, it can make it taste even better, as the flavors get a chance to meld.
To make ahead, simply follow instructions, then place in an air tight container in the refrigerator for 3-5 days.
This recipe DOES NOT FREEZE well, as the dairy in it will separate when frozen.
