It’s National Tortilla Chip Day, but what would chips be without dip? Read on for nine delicious dips you have to pair with your chips.

No. 1: Emeril Lagasse's Ultimate Cheese Beer Dip

Emeril melds cheese and beer for a thick and creamy dip that pairs perfectly with just about anything –tortilla chips, warm pretzels or even jerky!

No. 2: Trisha Yearwood’s Caramelized Onion Dip

This onion dip isn’t like your typical dip made from a dried soup mix. Trisha caramelizes her own onions by cooking them low and slow, for a rich, sweet flavor. She mixes her caramelized onions with mayo, Greek yogurt, Worcestershire sauce and that’s it!

No. 3: Warm Feta Dip with Artichokes

Who knew that your canned artichoke hearts could wind up being the life of the party?! All you have to is mix your artichoke hearts with feta cheese, mayo, parmesan cheese, garlic and sweet pimientos, pop it into the oven for about 20 minutes and voila! You just made the best party dip, ever.

No. 4: Lemon Yogurt & Chive Dip

For this fresh and delicious dip, Richard Blais uses items you might already have in your kitchen. He starts with Greek yogurt and adds lemon juice, capers and fresh dill and chives. Who wants a pre-made dip when you can serve something as fresh and tasty as this?

No. 5: Tzatziki Dip

This simple dip is so delicious and also good for you. Just mix low-fat Greek yogurt with dill, garlic, lemon juice and cucumber.

No. 6: Pistachio Cheese Dip

This super cheesy and nutty dip features toasted pistachios, cream cheese, cheddar, mayo, milk, garlic salt, dill, onion powder, white pepper and fresh parsley.

Tip: Toast your pistachios quickly and easily by sticking them in the microwave for a minute or two!

No. 7: Creamy Corn Dip

This tasty dip features a corn chowder-esque flavor profile that comes from smoky bacon mixed with ricotta cheese, chicken stock, shallots, garlic, chile, thyme and corn, and garnished with chives and a squeeze of lime. Yum!

No. 8: Grilled Guacamole

This isn’t your typical guac! Rach grills all the ingredients to add a smoky flavor.

No. 9: Chipotle Chicken Nacho Casserole

Okay, this isn’t actually a dip but it definitely belongs on anyone’s National Tortilla Chip Day list! For this king of all nacho recipes, Rachael “tiles” her chips, smoky chipotle chicken, and cheese so that the ingredients are well distributed, heats, and then tops with salsa, jalapenos and sour cream. Nothing wrong with any of that!
