It’s that time again – time for another football season to be over (yassss) – jk jk! What I mean to say is that it’s time for football’s annual grand finale – the Super Bowl! And we all know that the best part about the Super Bowl is the food you serve during it (because, let’s be honest, even the commercials have been lackluster in recent years). Oh and if football isn’t your thing (raises hand) then there is always the annual Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet which helps shelter dogs find forever homes while also supplying all of it’s viewers with a healthy dose of adorable puppy watching. Win-win? I think so!

To prepare for the festivities, I’ve created 3 easy dips so you can have a big dip spread ready for your guests in no time. And to make it even easier, I’ve created them with Earthbound Farm’s organic vegetable tray in mind so you don’t have to waste precious time choosing and chopping veggies for the table. Instead, take 20 or so minutes to whip up these easy dips and dig right in!

The vegetable trays feature organic carrots, organic broccoli, organic celery sticks, and organic tomatoes which will give your dip table a nice variety of texture, color, and dipping options! I also love how the tray already has all the vegetables in easily “dippable” form so you can keep it simple and not have to worry about putting out utensils for your guests.

Next we are going to talk about the dips but first I wanted to note that I don’t include salt and pepper when I say these are all only 5 ingredients because…well you all should have salt and pepper on hand already! And there are a few options where I’ll suggest drizzling the top with olive oil to really give the dip an extra ‘wow’ factor but it’s not required for a delicious dip.

Okay! First up on my 5 ingredient dip recipes list is this Buffalo Blue Cheese Artichoke Dip. The artichokes really give it some body while the tangy buffalo sauce and pungent blue cheese give this dip a ton of flavor. It was inspired by buffalo wings with blue cheese sauce but think of it without the meat and in dip form!

Next we have an easy Spicy White Bean Romesco (red pepper) sauce which will not only be a delicious addition to your table but will also give an extra pop of color! I wanted to include at least one vegan dip in this trio and also made sure to include the white beans for a little protein.

Finally, we have a fun riff on traditional pimento dip with this Smoked Gouda Pimento spread! The smoky flavor from the smoked Gouda brings a whole new flavor to this dish while still having a little tang from the pickles and creaminess from the mayo.
