Tex Mex Black Bean Dip

Rating: 4.5 stars 135
This black bean dip is great served with corn or flour tortilla chips. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Balsamic Vinaigrette

Rating: 4.5 stars 365
This is a tangy vinaigrette--wonderful on mixed greens, tomato, onion and cucumber salads. It's also good if used sparingly over steamed veggies or stir-frys. Sometimes I use traditional balsamic vinegar. However, this will produce a slightly sweeter vinaigrette.

Chef John's Hot Sloppy Joe Dip

Rating: 4.5 stars 41
For me this checks all the boxes for a hot party dip. It's relatively cheap and easy to make, but maybe more importantly, it's great hot, warm, or room temp. And it's also incredibly versatile.

Big Al's K.C. Bar-B-Q Sauce

Rating: 5 stars 1398
This is a Kansas City-style sauce that I make in my restaurant. It is sweet and smoky with a little bite.

Jalapeno-Cilantro Ranch Dip

Rating: 5 stars 2
Cool, herby, slightly spicy dip. Perfect with tortilla chips, mixed into guacamole, or on tacos. Refrigerate for up to 1 week. Can be frozen and then defrosted in the fridge, but the texture changes slightly -- it's best fresh.
