5 Recipes for Delicious Keto-Friendly Dip

by Roger Snyder 05/30/2022

The key to the increasingly popular keto diet is the correct amount of “macronutrients.” While this can make some popular foods off-limits, there are plenty of fun party foods and appetizers that even the most strict keto-followers can eat without guilt. Here are some ideas for some keto-friendly dips to make for your next gathering:

Buffalo Chicken Dip

For meat-lovers, this buffalo chicken dip is a hearty and fun addition to any party. The key ingredients are shredded chicken, cream cheese, mozzarella, Frank's Buffalo Sauce, green onions and ranch dressing. You can combine the ingredients to make the dip in multiple ways, including in a crock pot, stove top or even the microwave. Taking apart a rotisserie chicken is a great shortcut for this recipe.

Creamy Artichoke Dip

Creamy artichoke dip with spinach and cheese is a crowd-pleasing favorite and you can easily adjust the recipe to keep it keto-friendly. All you need to make this delicious party snack is fresh or frozen spinach, cream cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream, parmesan, mozzarella, garlic and a can of artichoke hearts. Combine ingredients either in the microwave or a saucepan and then bake for about 30 mins.

Traditional Guacamole

Basic avocado guacamole is already a keto-friendly recipe; so if you already know how to make it, you’re ahead of the game. The key ingredients are ripe avocados, freshly squeezed lime juice and cilantro. Since guacamole is easy to customize, you can be creative and add fun ingredients or garnish, including chopped jalapenos, tomatoes, onions and bell peppers.

French Onion Dip

French onion soup is a comfort food staple and easy to turn into a dip for keto party guests. You’ll need one onion, minced garlic, onion powder, cream cheese, sour cream, butter, salt and pepper. You can also add parsley as a garnish at the end. Saute the onion with butter over medium heat and then lower the heat to add in the creamy ingredients. Mix until it’s smooth and then put it in the fridge to set for a few hours. This dip is flavorful and satisfying and goes perfectly with fresh veggies or low-carb crackers.

Roasted Cauliflower Hummus Dip

Chickpeas are the principal ingredient in hummus. Unfortunately for keto followers, chickpeas have a high enough carbohydrate content to rule out hummus as a snack. However, you can achieve a delicious dip made from roasted cauliflower that tastes just like the real thing with fewer carbs. Roast some cauliflower florets until they’re golden brown and then blend with olive oil, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, salt, cumin, paprika and a bit of water. Keep blending until the dip is a smooth but sticky texture, perfect for dipping and scooping.

You don’t have to follow the keto diet to love these recipes. Try these delicious dips for your next gathering.
