Dean’s Dip Review and Giveaway (Closed)

Thank you to everyone who entered. Megan from What Megan’s Making won the Dean’s Dip Giveaway. I sent you an email, Megan, please respond within 48 hours.

I was recently asked to develop a recipe with the new Dean’s Pretzel Dip. It comes in two flavors, cheddar cheese and honey mustard. But unfortunately, they are not available in my area yet. I was only able to find the french onion and guacamole dips. I was bummed because I was excited to try the cheddar cheese dip. I love pretzels, especially soft baked pretzels. I decided to try out the french onion dip. I hope to get to try the pretzel dips soon in my area.

I really thought it was going to be an overwhelming onion flavor and it isn’t. It has the right amount of onion flavor and I really it for a quick snack in front of the television or an easy appetizer for a casual dinner at home with friends.

So for my recipe, I decided to kick up the french onion dip. This recipe is versatile enough for chips, tortilla chips and even as  a vegetable dip.

Kicked up Dean’s Dip

  • 8 oz. container of Dean’s Dip, French Onion flavored, I used half of a 16 oz. container
  • 1/2 medium tomato, diced about 1/4 cup
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, diced about 1/4 cup
  • 2 green onions, sliced thinly
  • 1 tsp of Frank’s hot sauce or to taste
  1. First add the Dean’s Dip to a small bowl and mix well.
  2. Add tomatoes, bell pepper and green onions and mix well.
  3. Add hot sauce to taste gradually and mix well.

That’s it! It’s a pretty easy. My husband mentioned how festive it even looks with the red and green colors.
