Need a dip? I got your dips!

We all know what time of the year we’re in…time to eat, get fat, be with the ones we love, and celebrate the birth of Christ! Normally around this time I’m scrambling for quick and easy recipes that can go to all of the “parties” with me. I’m a fan of warm appetizers, but traveling/work do not make for great re-heated apps! I found some yummy (and very easy) dips. I’m choosing to pair them with pita chips…but you can dip whatever you would like in these yummy creations!

Enjoy, and feel free to post your own easy appetizer ideas in the comment section!
