    What is your favorite kind of dip?

    On NYE Hubby and I opted for an evening of snack foods rather than a nice meal anywhere. Our refreshments consisted of, among other delicious but less than healthy fare, potato chips with french onion dip and tortilla chips with guac. I love french onion dip. I like it with lipton soup mix (I love the crunchy onions!) or from a can (so gourmet!).

    So, million dollar question here, but what is your favorite kind of dip?

    Pretty much anything full of fat and cheese

    Not really a 'dip' but Roasted Red Pepper Hummus (Cedars variety) is amazing.

    Favorite dip? Probably ofos.

    Ohhh, you meant that other kind of dip. As to that, potato chips must be paired with french onion dip and corn chips with salsa. That is all.

    Oh, I forgot about artichoke spinach dip. I do like that one. I also had an ooey-gooey warm buffalo chicken dip that was DELICIOUS and probably increased my chance of heart attack by 90%.

    I like melted brie covered in fruit jelly. Prissy but good.

    oh yeah or sauteed mushrooms

    I always liked those high 60's things like cream cheese with orange marmalade or pepper jelly poured over it and the chicken canned with cream cheese - bridge club food...

    I like good guacamole but salsa is my weakness.

    Hubby and I may or may not have on more than one occasion had only brie for dinner. Our Wegmans makes a delicious cranberry-walnut chutney to serve with brie. Yummmm.

    Knorr spinach dip is my favorite. Then french onion and salsa are tied for second. Everything else is third, except ranch, which is last by far.

    I loooove fresh guacamole... drool. But if hummus counts as a dip, it's probably my favorite, the one I eat the most.

    Salsa - but a thick chunky hot kind. Not some runny crap.

    Salsa - don't you love the way it sounds when you say it - salsa (que Jerry Seinfeld)

    I like most any dip.

    At Christmastime we were at a party at my cousin's and she made some great chili dip. I asked her what it was and was expecting some long complicated recipe but it was a block of Velvetta, a couple of cans of Hormel chili, and some diced green onion and red pepper. I'm not generally a fan of Velvetta but I've already made that dip each weekend since then.

    My wife makes artichoke and spinach dip that is really good when it is right out of the oven but once it gets cold it taste like vomit IMO.

    Like Beach Bum says, anything full of fat and cheese is generally pretty good.

    We also make the Velvetta/Hormel chili concoction on a regular basis.

    I love guacamole as a dip, but I do not like guacamole any other way.

    I don't know if we're allowed to make fine distinctions here, but I said salsa above and would like to amend that to pico de gallo...although maybe that's not quite "dippy" enough....can we get a ruling on that from the OP?

    Favorite dip: Skinny of course! Kidding, just kidding. I went with salsa and like Maister, I prefer it with more chunks and pieces than that runny stuff.

    I've been waiting for RJ to comment. You gotta know that skinny will be his choice.

    Cheap, store brand French Onion with Bacon. It says "I'm not fancy but I turn you on..."

    When it comes to dip I'm always slumming.
