Hummus, guacamole, and French onion dip are naturally meat-free classics.

Then there are sensations like whipped feta and warm taco dip that even carnivores can’t resist. 

Vegans, there are options for you, too.

Whether you’re bored with the usual or want something new, these dips are sure to please. 

So grab some crackers and let the dipping commence!

1. Vegetarian White Bean Buffalo Dip

Move over chicken buffalo dip. There’s a new star in town!

White beans replace chicken in this scrumptious dip. 

Not only does that make it vegetarian-friendly, but it makes it more economical too. 

Packed with three types of cheese and buffalo hot sauce, nobody will miss the meat. 

2. Rotel Dip

Have a can of Rotel hiding in the pantry? That’s great news!

With the addition of plant-based ground beef and Velveeta, you can make this easy dip. 

It comes together in no time at all. And you don’t have to be a professional chef to make it.

You brown the meatless beef, stir in the Rotel, and add the cheese. After a few minutes of frequently stirring, it’s ready.

3. Knorr Spinach Dip

Spinach dip is a classic crowd-pleaser. And nobody does it better than Knorr. 

Those perfectly seasoned packets spruce up mayo and sour cream for one delectable dip.

I also like to add water chestnuts for a nice crunch.

Serve this at your party with veggies, crackers, and chips to make everyone happy.

4. Homemade Veggie Dip

I love the flexibility of this dip. Parties, potlucks, picnics, or holidays, it’s universal.

Also, it doesn’t hurt that it’s ridiculously easy.

Simply mix sour cream, mayo, lemon, fresh herbs, and seasoning. See, I told you this dip is easy!

Bright and creamy, it’s best paired with a vibrant crudite platter. 

Radishes, carrots, celery, cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, and broccoli create a stunning array of colors.

5. Applebee’s Spinach Artichoke Dip

Wish you could have a big serving of Applebee’s spinach artichoke dip at your part? Your wish is my command!

I took some trial and error. But I finally figured out the secret to this addicting dip. 

And not to toot my own horn, but I think it’s even better than the original. 

It’s the most creamy and cheesy artichoke dip, hands down.

6. Pumpkin Fluff Dip

With the holiday season coming up, you need some dips to tide over guests. So here’s one you can throw together in under 10 minutes. 

Creamy and sweet, it’s a pumpkin lover’s dream. 

Canned pumpkin, pumpkin spice, Cool Whip, and pudding are all you need. 

Well, you’ll want some dippers, too. Pretzels and graham crackers will do.

7. Chipotle Guacamole

You know it’s a fiesta when the guacamole hits the table!

In my house, guacamole is a must as soon as the weather warms up. 

But not just any guacamole will do. It has to be super fresh, preservative-free, and perfectly spicy. 

In other words, it has to be my go-to Chipotle copycat recipe.

8. Roasted Red Pepper Dip

Try this dip once and you’ll want it on everything. 

Bold and robust, it’s one of the best Mediterranean-style appetizers I’ve ever had.

So it’s a good thing that it’s nutritious. 

The ingredients include roasted bell peppers, cannellini beans, basil, parmesan, olive oil, and lemon. 

For a vegan version, omit the cheese. 

9. Veggie Pizza Dip

Here’s a family-friendly dip that will call everyone to the table. 

The base calls for the creamy dip trifecta: sour cream, cream cheese, and mayo. 

Meld those three together with ranch seasoning and veggies. Then finish it off with more veggies.

With so much cheesy goodness, no one will fight you on eating their veggies.  

10. Roasted Asparagus Dip

Earth Day, Easter, or garden parties, this roasted asparagus dip is perfect for spring. 

Vegan cashew cheese, garlic, and lemon infuse the roasted asparagus with a fresh cheesy flavor.

Warm or cold, you can eat it either way. If you choose the latter, chill it for 30 minutes at the least.

11. Curry Dip

When you crave curry but want a light bite, this curry dip will be waiting. 

Curry powder gives mayo and Greek yogurt a punchy flavor.

Add apple cider vinegar, garlic powder, and onion powder to round out the flavor. 

Veggie sticks and crackers make it a satisfying snack.

It’s also good smeared on a sandwich or paired with chicken skewers. 

12. Creamy Whipped Feta Dip

To call this divine feels like an understatement.

The whipped consistency is heaven and the taste is right up there with it. 

Tangy, creamy, and fresh, this whipped feta dip is a surefire hit. 

It’s best eaten with warm and soft pita bread. It’s also killer with a mezze platter. 

13. Best Hummus

Best is a bold statement. Especially when there are so many incredible homemade hummus recipes

Yet in this case, it might just be true. 

It’s super creamy just like hummus should be. The ratio of tahini to garlic to lemon is pretty spot-on, too. 

And I just love the extra bite from the pine nut topping. 

14. Roasted Beet Dip

Lately, I’ve been vibing with this roasted beet dip. 

The color is alluring, while the flavor keeps you coming back. 

It’s packed with roasted garlic and walnuts. A handful of basil and parsley also makes it super fresh.

Not only is it tasty, but it’s also healthy, so you can feel good about devouring it. 

15. Easy Dill Dip

If you like onion dip, I think you’ll love this.

It has sour cream, mayo, onion, parsley, and garlic powder. 

So it’s similar, except for one ingredient. It’s packed with fresh dill. 

It’s a cinch to whip up. Although, it does need to chill for at least 30 minutes or so.

16. Healthy Roasted Vegetable Dip

Planning a big party menu? Give your guests options with these healthy roasted veggie dips. 

It comes in three sensational flavors: carrot, beet, and butternut squash. 

Together, they create a feast for the eyes, and it gets even better when you take a bite. 

17. Vegetarian Chili Cheese Dip

Part junky, part healthy, this vegetarian chili cheese dip is one cozy bite. 

It’s a molten hot gooey mess of cheese, soy beef crumbles, jalapenos, and then some. 

It’s a holiday must and a game day requirement, at least in my household. 

The kids gobble it up. Even the meat eaters keep coming back for more bites. 

18. Warm Taco Dip

This colorful dip is a stellar addition to a Cinco de Mayo spread

But no need to wait until the holiday. Whip it up for Taco Tuesday or Friday movie night. 

It has a sensational array of Mexican spices and ingredients. Plus, it’s cheesy to the max!

19. 5-Minute Black Bean Dip

Anytime I find myself empty-handed with last-minute company, I turn to this dip. 

It takes only 5 minutes, so it’s no trouble at all. It’s also vegan so most people can enjoy it. 

Even when there’s no company to feed, I find all sorts of excuses to make it. 

Enchiladas, tacos, or tamales, this dip pairs well with Mexican-style cuisine

20. Spicy Sweet Potato Dip

This dip will revolutionize how you view sweet potatoes. 

Sure, they’re killer as fries and scrumptious in casseroles. But this dip has me convinced this is the perfect use. 

Sweet, spicy, earthy, and smoky, it’s flavored just right. 

You can serve it as an appetizer. I also like it on sandwiches, burgers, and burritos. 

21. French Onion Dip

Grab the potato chips because you don’t want to miss this French onion dip. 

French onion is an oldie but a goodie that will never go out of style.

It’s right up there with classics like spinach artichoke and pimento cheese. 

This one, though, comes with a twist. It calls for a homemade cashew sour cream. 

Give it a try. I guarantee no one will care that it’s non-dairy.

22. Dairy-Free Sun-Dried Tomato Dip

Need a dip that everyone can eat? Meet your new go-to, sun-dried tomato dip. 

Gluten-free, soy-free, nut-free, and vegan, it adheres to just about all diets. Plus, it’s versatile. 

Serve it with veggies and crackers as an appetizer or snack. 

It’s also good for sandwiches, wraps, falafel, burgers, and more. 

23. Epic Baba Ganoush

This baba ganoush is legendary! Don’t believe me? Try it for yourself. 

You get plenty of smoky notes from the roasted eggplant. Meanwhile, the seasoning is on point. 

Add a couple of tablespoons of lemon to perk it up.  

From Mediterranean cuisine to simple appetizers, it goes well with all sorts of things. 

24. Baked Cheesy Cauliflower Dip

Cauliflower never fails to astound me. 

By itself, the flavor is neutral. When done right, it’s magical. 

Take this dip for instance. It’s a delectable cheesy delight. 

Serve it hot with crostini and dive right in. You and your guests will devour it until the last bite.

25. Fresh Garlic & Herb Goat Cheese Dip

Talk about swoon-worthy!

Everything about this dip is heavenly. From the flavor to the texture, it will have you floating on cloud nine. 

The goat cheese melds with cream cheese, garlic, herbs, and lemon.

Right before indulging, top it off with quality extra virgin olive oil. 

It’s so good, you might feel the temptation to hog the bowl.

Lucky for you, you can make it in 10 minutes any time you like.
