Don’t get caught off guard, here’s how to keep your kitchen pantry party ready!
When You’re at the Store:
- Always, buy an extra block of cream cheese. You’ll never regret having this foundational ingredient in your fridge – creamy, crowd-pleasing dip coming right up!
- Stock up on some basics. You’ll be amazed at all you can do with simple ingredients, like: a can of your favorite beans – Down-Home Layered Dip or Grilled Picnic Taco Nachos – a package of bacon – Slow-Cooker Bacon Cheeseburger Dip or roll-ups of almost any variety – or an extra carton of eggs – Zesty Deviled Eggs.
- Stock up on crunchy carrots, celery, peppers or whatever type of veggie your family likes to munch — there’s nothing wrong with pre-cut either. No one will complain when you serve these veggies alongside a creamy dip — remember that block of cream cheese?
