I LOVE dips, cold and hot, but when it’s chilly outside and we have people over I gravitate toward the warm ones. I have tried many but here are some of the best hot dip recipes that I’ve ever had. They are perfect if you are hosting a party especially during the winter months or are just craving some comfort food on a weekend. Serve them during football season and they will definitely be a huge hit! (originally published 2/17, affiliate links present)

Super Bowl Dips

I mean you don’t have to wait until the big game day to make one or all of these. We love easy dip recipes during Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas get togethers too. What we look forward to is snacking all day long, not just the main meal y’all.

Of course all easy dips recipes need something to scoop them up with and our favorite bases are:

  1. Best beer bread recipe
  2. Cheesy garlic pull apart bread
  3. Potato and/or tortilla chips – a given
  4. Instant Pot beer bread
  5. Pita chips
  6. Bagel chips
  7. Savory monkey bread
  8. Baguette cut in small slices

Best Hot Dip Recipes

From cheese, to cream cheese, to chili and more these hot dips are pretty easy to make which is what I am all about. If you need a dairy free dip we have an option for those too. Try this dairy free buffalo chicken dip so everyone can enjoy some YUM at your next get together.

No expensive ingredients for me, and most are 5 ingredients or less to make. Here are 10 of my favorite warm appetizers starting with shrimp rotel dip and then…..

Go on with our Baked Buffalo Chicken Dip if you need something to use up your leftover chicken. Can make as spicy or mild as you’d like.

Warm Crack Dip

Super Bowl Dip Recipes

You can always adjust the heat to any of these with some roasted jalapeno diced or leave it out for mild. Oh but that is not all my friends, we have many more you should try on a rotation. Want to make it and serve it right inside your slow cooker? Make our spicy copycat Publix buffalo chicken dip recipe.

If you want to use all canned and packaged ingredients with some meat, or without, you should go with our Velveeta sausage dip Rotel recipe here.

Layered dips like this one are fun. You normally think of a classic bean dip with the guacamole and sour cream in layer upon layer but there are many more you can create.

Taco Dip with Ground Beef

Hot Appetizers

Baked in your oven you should try our queso dip with meat. Use ground beef or sausage precooked in there to make it a hearty dish.

Hot corn and green chile dip

Cheesy chili dip

Which ones are your favorites. Have you made something like a homemade goat cheese dip you can share with us that’s not on this list?

Now if you want to add some vegetables and/or seafood into the mix you totally can. Those add protein, texture and a lot of flavor for sure.

Now let’s talk about a few cold ones like our bang bang sauce, fry sauce and this mustard pretzel dip. I guess you could make the last one heated up too.
