Smokehouse Cheddar Onion: This particular dip mix makes an awesome burger. This is all you need to make a plain old burger into a flavorful party must have!
*1 tablespoon of dry mix to 1 pound of hamburger meat.
Mix the dry mix and your burger meat all together, patty out the meat into the perfect size burger, fry them up and enjoy! Yep it’s really that easy.....
Ghost Pepper Punishment: Want to change up the American comfort food? This makes a great meatloaf! Yes a meatloaf! This is the only way we make ours now.
*1 tablespoon of dry mix to 1 pound of hamburger meat
Mix the dry right into your hamburger meat along with all your other ingredients. Bake the meatloaf just like normal and serve with all your favorite side items.
Queso Fiesta: Just like the name implies this is great addition to your favorite Mexican dish. This dip can also be served warm to top off some nachos or tacos. I personally like to spread it on top of burritos.
*1 package of Queso Fiesta and 1 block of cream cheese and some milk.
Combine the package of mix, cream cheese, and milk and simply throw it in the microwave for about 90 seconds. Check the mixture to make sure everything mixes together and stir. This mix will make your taste buds dance the night away...yum!
Bacon Jalapeno: Don’t let the jalapeno scare you. This mix is all about the flavor not the heat so much. Depending on your tolerance you may get just a little bite. I personally like this one on a baked potato. For that matter even mixed in mashed potatoes changes the same old side item to a burst of flavor.
*1 package mix and 2 cups sour cream
Mix the dip together and top off your baked potato or use it to substitute the milk and butter in mashed potatoes. Sounds too easy? It is that easy!!
Dill Pickle: Who doesn't like dill pickles?? I mean really, they are the best right?! Wanna try something new? This one is the NEW you are looking for! My personal favorite thing to do with this one is to make a cucumber salad with it. I know everyone makes this salad differently so I'm gonna tell you how to do it my way .
*1 package dip mix and 1 cup sour cream plus 1 cup REAL mayo
Mix the dip together with your sour cream and mayo and chill for 1 hour. Once chilled slice and dice up your cucumber into quarters and add to the dip. Now from here is where your recipe comes in. I’m not all the great at eating onions so I simply stop there, but feel free to add your personal favorites to the mix. This is only one way I make mine. Now for the second way I do it....mix everything the same as above but add one more ingredient... 1 pound of boiled pasta.
Creamy Cracked Crab: Don't let the name fool you...there is NO crab meat in this mix. It just tastes like it to give even the seafood hater in your life something new and amazing to try. Now you can get creative with this one! I have 3 different recipes for you......are you ready?
*1 package dip mix and 2 cups sour cream
Mix the dry mix with your sour cream and add 6oz crab meat into it. That’s it!! Turn the mix into a great addition for your seafood craving.
*1 package dip mix 1 8oz block of cream cheese and some milk
Mix everything together and stick into the microwave for 90 seconds. Stirring occasionally to make sure everything is mixed together, now the fun part add 6oz crabmeat to the warm dip and serve over approximately 1 pound pasta for a flavor filled wine and dine night at home!
*1 package dip mix 1 8oz block cream cheese and some milk and a bread bowl loaf
Mix everything together and stick into the microwave for 90 seconds. Stirring occasionally to make sure everything is mixed together. Add 6oz crab meat into the warm mix. While that’s cooling pull the middle out of your bread and place it to the side. Pour the mixture into the bread bowl and use the pieces pulled to dip into the mix. Does it make you feel like you’re at a fancy restaurant yet......it should. It's that good!
The Best Beer Cheese: We might be tooting our own horn here but it is the best to us and our dip loving customers. While it is great as a cold dip it is even better as a warm dip. Wanna know how....
*1 package dip mix and 1 8oz block cream cheese and some milk
Mix the package, cream cheese, and milk together and put in the microwave for 90 sec. Stir occasionally to make sure everything is a mixed together. Here it is the perfect dip for soft serve pretzels on game night! Or you can spice up your scalloped potatoes with this warm dip and no one will fight you to much if you accidently add some beer to it....just sayin.
Cheesy Bacon: Anything with bacon in it just belongs in potatoes. At least that's what I think. On top of bacon there is cheese so yea it belongs in potatoes. You can mix this in mashed potatoes, scalloped potatoes, or even put in on top of a baked potato. Here's the secret to an amazing side dish...
*1 package mix and 1 cup sour cream with 1 cup real MAYO
Mix the dip just like the package says to and add the dip right into mashed potatoes, no need to add butter or milk (unless you want to add some) I wouldn’t add to much though. Or add the mix to already baked scalloped potatoes and top them off with your favorite garnish. The easiest way to use the dip is to simply put it on top of a baked potato along with all your other fabulous toppings. You will never eat potatoes the same way again with this dip mix around!
Garden Garlic: So this little gem can do so many fantastic and flavorful dishes. Everything from making delicious mashed potatoes, amazing pasta salad even a satisfying chicken dinner. My personal favorite way to use this one is to sprinkle it on top of pot roast in the crock pot. Here's what you will need....

Mix the dip mix with 1 cup mayo and 1 cup sour cream and mix it directly into your mashed potatoes for a delicious side dish.

*1 package mix (CHICKEN AND ROAST)
You can use this particular mix as a dry rub or a seasoning for that something special added to your main dish. This is all about taste and how much garlic you want to taste. I personally just sprinkle the mix on top of the meat I am cooking.
Horseradish Onion: Neither of us likes Horseradish, but we know people who do. We made this one and tested it out on a bunch of people and everyone who tried it loved it! So I’m going to tell you how they eat it and you can enlighten more people with your version.

We have heard this being used for a spicy version of chili, pork chop seasoning, chicken seasoning, steak seasoning, or you can use it to spice up your homemade jerky! Add the dry mix to taste......but remember once you add this without any dairy to help cover up the capsaicin it will DOUBLE in heat level!!! This has the 2nd hottest pepper in it so it will be HOT!
Smoke and Fire: The name says it all with this mix. You get a smoky flavor along with some fire!! This is a great dip for wings or to spice up some pork chops and chicken. We were also told that this one does great as egg seasoning.
