Cheat Day Chip Dip: Easy And Party Perfect

is there anything better than an amazing chip dip recipe? according to me, there absolutely is not. whether it’s game day, cheat day, or #selfcaresunday, this creamy chip dip is guaranteed to seriously elevate the occasion.

ever since I can remember, every single family holiday, get-together, or gathering of any kind has always had one thing in common: cheat day chip dip. I can’t imagine a party of any size or shape without it, and every time I’ve brought this chip dip to someone’s party people have absolutely freaked out. it is THAT good.

if the imminent arrival of fall and football season have you craving comfort food, i suggest making this immediately.


not only is this chip dip the most incredibly crowd-pleasing thing I know how to make, it also literally happens to be the easiest thing in the entire world to make. like, made it in the janky dormitory kitchen freshman year of college easy.

as a lot you probably know, i grew up in the midwest where we (most of us at least) heavily celebrate nutritious food groups such as buffalo wings and pizza rolls. though I’ve been a west coast gal for the past decade and love finding healthy spins on old favorites, sometimes you just gotta go for the real thing.

this chip dip is comfort food at its finest and I’m completely obsessed and excited to share it with you.


not only is this dip crazy easy, it comes together SUPER fast.

just chop up a couple of quick ingredients, mix it all together, and bake it in a dish for 20 minutes. serve it with a great bag of tortilla chips and watch yourself instantly become the hero of the party.
