Delicious Dips for Your Next BBQ

Now that summer’s here, there’s a good chance you’ll be inviting friends over for a barbecue at least once during the season. In addition to having flavorful burgers or barbecued chicken on the grill, you can serve appetizers like dips to keep your guests full and satisfied. Here are five dips to include at your next outdoor party.

Carmelized Onion Dip

If you and your guests are fans of French onion soup, you’ll love this dip made from carmelized onions, sour cream and a blend of spices including garlic and paprika. The drop tastes great with potato chips, or you can serve it with pita squares.

Spicy Buffalo Chicken Dip

Add some spice to your outdoor party with this buffalo chicken dip. The dip has blue cheese in it for even more flavor, and you can bake it in several small ceramic bowls for impressive presentation.

Spicy Corn Dip

Corn dip isn’t extremely common at barbecues, but it will likely be a hit after your friends and family taste this savory treat. Sweet corn, along with jalapeños, onions and garlic are blended together to make this dip the perfect appetizer for a Tex-Mex themed dinner.

Of course, after you’ve made the dips and other other delicious food for your barbecue, you’ll need to know how to keep the bugs away. Filling a few mason jars with candles that contain citrus oil can repel mosquitos, and of course, it’s best to have a few citronella candles on hand as well. Candles with peppermint oil can also keep your barbecue free of critters and add yet another pleasant smell to the table. Decorating the table with a centerpiece that include fresh lavender can also ensure that your outdoor celebration is pest-free.
