LOOKING for: Dip Recipe

june_2007February 22, 2009

We went to our grandsons Blue And Gold Banquet yesterday. Someone had brought this dip that was to die for. Does anyone have a good dip recipe to share?

Then someone else had brought some what tasted like beef jerky wrapped in bacon with a tooth pick. The meat had a sweet glaze. I HAVE to find a recipe for them too.

I thank you in advance for your help.

Do you mean just any kind of dip? Or something a little more particular - cold or hot?

This isn't beef, but could vaguely pass for chicken jerky wrapped in bacon! I think they are pretty good.

Sweet Chicken Bacon Wraps
Recipe courtesy Paula Deen
1 1/4 pounds boneless, skinless, chicken breasts (about 4 breasts)
1 (1-pound) package sliced bacon
2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons chili powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Cut chicken breasts into 1-inch cubes. Cut each bacon slice into thirds. Wrap each chicken cube with bacon and secure with a wooden pick. Stir together brown sugar and chili powder. Dredge wrapped chicken in mixture. Coat a rack and broiler pan with nonstick cooking spray. Place chicken wrap on rack in broiler pan. Bake 350 for 30 to 35 minutes or until bacon is crisp.

Perhaps if you told us what was in the dip we may recognize it, and find it for you.

Prepare pudding with milk. Mix all other ingredients. Chill and serve with your favorite fruit.

Add to 1/2 cup good mayo to the shrimp and mix in lightly. Add 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder, then add up to 1/2 cup more of mayo until you have a nice dipping sauce.
Cover, and chill a couple of hours.

1 1/2 to 2 jalape chilies, seeded
1 (1-inch) piece green onion (green part only)
1 (1-inch) piece of celery
1/4 to 1/2 cup mayonnaise
Salt, pepper to taste
3 to 4 leaves cilantro, chopped

Place tuna, jalapeños, green onion and celery in food processor or blender. Pulse several times but do not puree.

Add mayonnaise, salt and pepper and blend to combine.
Garnish with cilantro leaves.

Serve with tortilla chips

1 can artichoke hearts (non-merinated)
1 can (4 oz.) diced chiles
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1 c. mayonaise

Chop artichoke hearts medium fine
mix all ingredients together
Place in baking dish, and heat for about 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees

Serve with crackers or slices of bread


1 1/2 cups cream cheese

1 & 1/4 cups pineapple chunks
3/4 cup pina colada mix

1/2 cup maraschino cherries, halved

1/2 cup sour cream

In a blender combine cream cheese, pina colada mix, and sour cream and blend until smooth.
Place mixture into a mixing bowl and fold in the pineapple chunks and maraschino cherry halves.
Refrigerate until well chilled.

Serve with fruit

Makes about 2 cups

From the Barefoot Contessa

1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes in oil ( about 8 tomatoes) , drained and chopped
8 ounces cream cheese, room temperatur
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise ( NOT Miracle whip )
10 dashes tabasco sauce
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 scallions, thinly sliced, ( white and green part )

Puree the tomatoes, cream cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, Tabasco sauce, salt and pepper in food processor fitted with a metal blade. Add the scallions and pulse twice. Serve dip at room temperature.
I usually make this the day before I am going to serve it. Take out of refgr. about 1 hour before serving. I like to serve this with toasted bagel chips.

CHILI DIP (an old standard, but good & quick)

2 cans Hormel Chili, with no beans
1/4 cup green onions, chopped fine
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 8oz block pepper jack cheese or sharp cheddar
1 large bag Scoops Freetoes chips
Heat the 2 cans of chili in a medium sauce pan
Add onion, garlic powder or whatever seasoning you like
Cut the cheese into small chunks so it melts faster.
Add cheese to the warm chili and stir until the cheese melts, and everything is heated through.

Serve in a heated dish with the Freetoe chips ot tortilla chips. This is really good with home made chips, lightly salted & warm.

Good luck on finding the recipe!

OOOOPS sorry I didn't explain the dip very well at all, but all I know that was in it was some crab meat. It was kind of smokey.

Is this the jerky recipe you were looking for? The sausages can be a little chewy like jerky if they are over cooked.......

When Pigs Fly

1 pack Litl Smokies
1 lb. pack of bacon.
½ cup brown sugar (or to taste)
¼ cup pineapple juice


Cut bacon into half or third pieces depending on thickness and length of bacon slices. You need enough bacon to wrap and overlap a little bit. Use a toothpick pierced through each Little Smokie to hold the bacon in place. Pour pineapple juice in bottom of casserole dish 9 x 11. Place Little Smokies in casserole dish. Sprinkle brown sugar over top. Refrigerator overnight so that the sauce gets cold and thick over the wieners. Right before serving, bake at 350 degrees F for around a half hour or until the cocktail sausages are hot with a browned crust on top.

Hey June! You don't have to make every single recipe - unless you have enough Margaritas or something to go around :)
