Parmesan Sour Cream Chip Dip

Now I admit this isn't the most colorful dip in the world. And yes I agree that we do eat with our eyes first... But we're talking Parmesan Sour Cream Chip Dip here folks, ya gotta stick at least one potato chip in there to see how it tastes! And it tastes pretty darn good! I should know, I stuck, um... many more than one... potato chip in there:@)
 My notes about this dip:
  1. You'll want to use freshly grated Parmesan if it's available.
  2. I love the mustard in this, Dijon was in the fridge so that's what I used and for once I think I wouldn't sub another type.
  3. While both Parm and chips are salty, your dip will still need some salt. Taste it with a chip and adjust.
  4. They suggest serving this with Black Pepper Potato Chips... They sound good, they sound fancy and they sound like they're about $2 more a bag than the regular ones! I suggest we change the name to Parmesan and Black Pepper Sour Cream Chip Dip and put that money into another munchie for the party:@) 
  5. Black Pepper: I went heavy when mixing the dip but what really made it great was coating the top with a layer of fresh coarsely ground black pepper. (Did that as an after thought before serving, really perked up the look too.) 
  6. I felt this was best once it began to lose some of the chill.
  7. This recipe can easily be scaled down.

  1. It's a good thing cyber calories don't count Lynn...I ate all those chips and licked the screen :)

  2. Right to the pin board it goes. I have dips that are Mexican-ish and oniony, but this is different.

    (And laughing at Mary's comment!)

  3. My husband loves this dip and I think the Dijon would add a great layer of flavor Lynn. Thanks for all of the tips. The more pepper the better.

  4. Oh my gosh Lynn!!! What are you doing to me???? This sounds sooooo delicious!! I love sour cream dip but this one with the fresh parm and mustard which I know can NOT be low in calories or salt is making me drool. Good thing Mary got to it first so I don't need to walk an extra 2 miles today. Linda

  5. I cannot wait to try this! Sounds so good and easy. Nice change from the onion and ranch dip overload. Thank you.

  6. It does sound good but I'm truly surprised that you didn't think to add some CAYENNE PEPPER to the top...just for color, of course. ;-p

    Now you've got me hungry for chips & dip.

  7. So what if my eyes aren't overwhelmed. With sour cream and parmesan, I know my mouth most certainly will be. I am going to a quilt retreat next week, and this would be just the thing to take along for the snack table. Thanks for sharing, Lynn.

  8. Mmmm, I must admit it sounds VERY good! I saved a copy of the recipe... thank you!

  9. This sounds like such an easy dip and delicious with that freshly ground black pepper....

  10. Preety damn good dipping!
    i guess i'm gonna be pleased as a guest in your party....

  11. May son's going to love this while he's watching football. I just need to run out and get some fresh parm and I'm set! It'd be good with veggies, too! Happy football watching, Lynn! xo

  12. Those waffle chips are my favorite with dips!!! Perfect as we head into party season!

  13. This sounds like perfection to me! I'm with you on the chips, you can't beat a good regular ruffled chip, I don't like all the crazy flavored ones, I'd rather have a yummy dip!


Thanks for stopping by!
