Dip Showmanship Recipe

Step 1

To dress up dips in holiday style, serve them with festive flair. Leave your serving bowls on the shelf and try one of these fresh ideas.

Step 2

PARTY-PERFECT PEPPER POTS: Start with a large red, yellow or green pepper. Place the pepper on its side and cut a large slice from the top, forming an opening that's large enough to dip into easily. Remove the seeds and membranes and fill the pepper with your favorite dip.

Step 3

COLORFUL CABBAGE CUPS: Cut a thin slice off the stem end of a red or green cabbage so it will be upright. Using a small, sharp knife, cut a "bowl" in the top of the cabbage and tuck in a small glass bowl. Fill the bowl with your favorite. Save the cabbage you've removed for coleslaw, or toss it into a salad.

Step 4

BEAUTIFUL BREAD BOWL: Cut a thick slice off the top of a small round loaf of bread and hollow out the bread, leaving a 1/2-1" thick shell. Fill the bread bowl with your favorite dip. Cut the top slice and the bread you've removed from the inside into bite-size cubes to use as dippers. Works great with classic Pace Con Queso Dip.
