Cilantro Hummus

New post! Cilantro Hummus! 

As a food blogger, I try really hard to balance what I eat. Some days are better than others. Sometimes my temptations get a hold of me and I fall prey to a big old fashioned doughnut. It’s totally normal; it’s what I refer to as LIVING!  What I’ve learned about health and balancing my diet is that one must arm oneself with good choices or else you’ll be more likely to grab a bag of pretzels over vegetables & fruit. All it takes is a little time upfront and you’re on your way.

Well…that and…WILLPOWER.

Cilantro Hummus // shutterbean

If you’ve followed my meal prep post or you’ve seen some of my weekly meal prep posts on Instagram, you’ll know that I almost always have fresh-cut vegetables in my fridge. It works out well for us because we have a five year old who loves to eat red peppers (sometimes carrots!) and cucumbers for his “appetizer.”  It also makes it easier for me to make good choices throughout the day.

Cilantro Hummus // shutterbean

But what do you do if you’re sick of eating vegetables plain? MAKE HUMMUS!  I’ve owned a Vitamix for a few years now and it’s become of my most used kitchen appliances (besides our panini press). Cooper has 4-5 smoothies (packed with kale & spinach!) a week and I use it to make a weekly batch of vanilla almond milk or fresh homemade pesto. I’ve added hummus to our weekly rotation because my Vitamix blends it up like a dream! Hummus is fine on its own, but why don’t we take it up a notch and add cilantro oil to the top? You’re probably wondering- Why not mix the cilantro IN with the hummus? Because a certain five-year old that I live with doesn’t like it…. But he WILL eat the hummus without it and that’s good enough for me. More cilantro oil for me!!

And we’re off! We’re gonna make our cilantro oil first. It’s like a liquid-y pesto. It’s a flavor enhancer!

Now we add the cilantro, oil, salt with a small squeeze of lemon into the blender. We’re using grapeseed oil because it doesn’t have a strong taste.Vegetable oil will do as well.

And we blend!

  • 1/2 cup grapeseed oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • squeeze of lemon

Place ingredients in a blender and process until smooth.

to make the hummus:

  • 1 (15 oz. can) garbanzo beans, drained & rinsed
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

  • Tori

    what?! this is awesome! I’ve just started making my own hummus (2 delicious batches) and I’m a little bit in love. BUT with the weather warming up guacamole will probably be taking its place. (I have yet to try your guacamole hummus, but it will happen)

    Guacamole salsa! Half guac (or sometimes just a mushed up avocado) and half SUPER SPICY salsa verde. It’s like a creamier salsa or a thinner guac. It’s perfect. I also like to mix ghost chile salsa into my hummus. It’s amazing!

  • Suzi

    I eat hummus A LOT, but my absolute favorite dip is my aunt’s southwest dip. It involves a brick of cream cheese, a bag of shredded cheddar, and lots of jalapenos. SO GOOD (but definitely not good for daily munching).

    It’s hard to beat really good hummus, but I also love yogurt/veggie/spice dips!

  • Laura

    White bean dip is my very favorite dip!

  • Kate

    My favorite dip is brie cheese baked in a bread bowl!

  • Lyndsay

    My favorite dip is a cheeseball recipe from our family’s beaten-up, 1980’s Spencer, IA YMCA fundraiser cookbook. The pineapple cheeseball, affectionately just called “THE cheeseball” has been a staple at family holidays for decades now. Healthy? No. Delicious? Yes.

    no dip left behind – whichever dip is in front of me at the time is my favorite!

  • Lisa

    I’m a huge fan of french onion dip or spinach dip. So tasty and both are easy to make for a crowd!

  • Elana

    I can’t get over how pretty that hummus swirl is.

    Peanut butter. Peanut butter is my favorite dip because you can easily make it sweet or savory. Bag of chocolate chips? Dip. Mix it up Thai style and you got satay. Dip.

  • Meghan

    At every family get-together, my aunt makes this wonderful spicy crab dip – crab, cream cheese, mayo, hot sauce, etc – entirely unhealthy, but oh so indulgent! I could eat that with a baguette any day of the week!

    Buffalo Chicken Dip or Queso! Not exactly healthy, but it’s about BALANCE, right?

  • abbey

    Muhammara! I make it all the time.

    Check out Heidi’s version:

  • Molly Grimmius

    Lemon Guacamole….yum yum yum. My mom had a vitamix growing up and got so spoiled with a machine that can really do anything.

  • Molly Grimmius

    Lemon Guacamole….yum yum yum. My mom had a vitamix growing up and got so spoiled with a machine that can really do anything.

  • Kelly

    Can’t get enough of my sister’s Buffalo Chicken dip made with Greek yogurt!

  • Joanna

    Green goddess or a homemade caramelized onion dip. Something about the herby, garlicky taste of green goddess makes my taste buds dance and what’s not to love about caramelized onions?

  • Nia

    I recently had romesco sauce at a restaurant to dip shrimp into and it was divine! I would love to make it at home.

  • Kristen

    It’s a toss up between guac and hummus! Maybe a three way tie with French Onion Dip too!

  • Marla Solano

    Spinach Dip!!! yay!

  • Angela

    Homemade guacamole. Has to be homemade.

  • Missy

    You know that horribly delicious dip that everyone makes by mixing sour cream with dried onion soup mix? Well, my mom doesn’t like sour cream (neither do I!) so she would blend low fat cottage cheese in the blender while adding the onion soup mix. To this day, it’s one of my favorite dips for veggies and chips. I will sometimes even eat the entire container (and bonus: feel much less guilt than I would if I ate an entire container of sour cream!).

  • Traci

    Salsa is my favorite but I am acquiring a taste for hummus.

  • Laura F.

    Red pepper hummus with pretzel thins…yummmm…great, now I am hungry…I am going to go get some right now!

  • katie

    I like to make a sort of 5-alarm hummus that is too spicy for all the wimps in my life (more for me!) – typical hummus base blended with 4 or 5 chipotles in adobo sauce, several liberal shakes of Tabasco, red pepper flakes, cayenne…clear sinuses for days!

  • Camille

    I’ve loved guacamole ever since I tried it on my honeymoon in Costa Rica six years ago! Thanks for the chance to win the blender.

    Hummus and guac

    I am totally on the guacamole bandwagon! I like it with roasted jalapeños and garlic.

  • Isra


  • jacquie

    artichoke and spinach dip

  • Bridget

    I love good guacamole!

  • Dottie

    Oh wow! I’ve been wanting a Vitamix for years.

    I think my favorite dip is a feta dip–like the one Bon Apetite just featured last month. SO GOOD!


  • Angela

    You don’t need a blender for it (but I’ve been lusting after a Vitamix forever!), but I just whipped up a faux tzatziki to go on my spicy shrimp cakes with cucumbers, dill, parsley, greek yogurt, and a squeeze of lime juice. It was perfect with the super spicy shrimp!

  • Christine

    Is guacamole a dip? If not, hummus for sure! Mmm. I’m hungry now.

  • Erin

    My favorite dip is salsa con queso. That is like my kryptonite and if it’s in front of me, I will eat the whole bowl.

  • Margaret

    Probably Ranch dressing. Its not the healthiest, but favorites rarely are the most nutritious choice.

  • MeLisa

    My favorite dip is probably roasted red pepper mixed with ricotta

  • Becky R.

    I love those ranch-y dips that are probably bad for you, but SO good with chips. They show up so often at parties!

  • Brittany

    Guacamole all the way. Yum!

  • Elly

    Oooh, what a tough question. I’ll have to say tzatziki is my favorite, with guacamole and red salsas vying for second place. I like the idea of cilantro oil – will have to try it with my hummus someday.

  • ila

    gotta love some crab gratin! But for healthy with veggies: tzatziki

  • Sabrina Modelle

    I love to dip stuff in vinaigrettes, which I know is a tad strange. But then, I’m a tad strange. Also love anything made with creme fraiche.

  • Sarah

    Red pepper hummus…nom nom nom! 🙂

  • ChristineFD


  • Valerie

    Hummus with garlic and roasted tomato.

  • SherryC

    Anything and I mean anything with avocado. Love it!)

  • Renee

    My favorite dip is feta dip, but this hummus could easily be my next fave!

    Roasted red pepper hummus from publix (or homemade) is my favorite!

  • Meagan

    Being from Texas, guacamole is my #1 fave. But I also adore hummus and spinach/artichoke dip!

    I could never decide between guacamole, feta dip, and hummus. They’re all favorites!

    Pico de gallo! Not technically a dip but delicious nonetheless

  • meaghan

    Guacamole! Thanks for the giveaway!

  • Kristen

    I love a really bright, fresh, spicy salsa! Straight from the garden, if possible.

  • Laura

    Guacamole, for ever and for always.

  • Angela Y

    I like hummus with a lot of garlic, or spinach and artichoke dip!

  • Mardi

    I like all the dips. BUT – salsa is probably my favorite, not from a jar, from a Mexican restaurant.

  • Theresa

    Guacamole. x1000. A friend taught me to add in a tiny dash of soy sauce to help bring out the flavors. Genius move!

  • Hillary

    White bean dip with chili flakes – so good!

  • Charity

    hummus with roasted red peppers all up in it. that’s my fave!

  • alicia

    any dip! – but i tend to gravitate toward white bean hummus OR guacamole (both homemade) more so than any other 🙂

  • Amberlee

    Salsa for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! A close runner up is hummus though; I’ll have to make your cilantro oil variation soon. 🙂

  • Kelly G.

    I love pesto! I spread it on everything, and will dip anything in it!

  • Emily

    guacamole. always, guacamole. 🙂

  • Cynthia

    Homemade spicy lemon hummus!

  • lani trock

    raw cashew pesto! i love you.

  • Melanie

    Guacamole with roasted jalapeños, onion and garlic. Rick Bayless made guacamole even more special by roasting some of the key ingredients.

  • sarah


  • Callahan Woodbery

    Aw man! That looks tasty! My favorite dip is spicy peanut sauce (basically peanut butter, soy sauce, and chili powder) super tasty on broccoli!

    I totally channeled you yesterday and listened to the JtB podcast while organizing my closet, letting Tracy, Our Lady of Organization guide my decluttering!

  • Bengi Selcukoglu

    Favorite dip would definitely be guacamole!

  • Natasha C

    Favorite dip is hummus, coincidentally! Followed by buffalo chicken dip as a close second

  • Jodie

    Favorite dip… it’s a toss up. Guacamole or anything basil – pesto, basil hummus, etc.

  • Allyn

    Healthy current me says hummus. Honest, doesn’t give a damn me says queso.
    Oooh, or guacamole. Or a good salsa.
    So many choices

  • Michaela

    My favorite dip is guacamole with hummus coming in as a close second.

  • Christine

    My favorite dip is plain greek yogurt + lemon juice or lemon curd + cumin. So delicious!

  • Gina

    Sour cream and onion! 🙂

  • Meagan B.

    I lovvvvvvve a good spinach artichoke dip. But that is very closely followed by red pepper hummus.

  • Adrienne K

    It’s a tie between black bean dip and guacamole!

  • jaime

    that cilantro oil sounds fantastic! i’m a lover of pretty much all dips, but my fav is probably a really fresh, garlicky salsa.

  • Marie

    Lately, I have been super obsessed with a Chipotle Lime dip made with a Greek yogurt base. SO GOOD on pretty much everything.

    My favorite dip is my mom’s shrimp dip – amazing with Triscuits!! She’s passed on the recipe to me and it’s now a go-to whenever I have a party to go to!

    My favorite dip is definitely good old-fashioned corn dip! So easy to make and super delicious too!

  • Caitlin

    Favorite dip? That’s easy – hummus!! My favorite is roasted red pepper hummus, but plain ol’ regular ol’ hummus is delicious any day with a pita chip or piece of toasted bread…yum! Tracy, this hummus looks great, and I’ve got to try that cilantro oil!

  • Stacy

    It’s a tie between hummus and tzatziki, but this cilantro oil may tip the scale toward hummus!

  • Amy

    It’s not healthy at all, but I’m really enjoying leftover pimento cheese dip from Easter!

  • Laura T

    My mom makes a garlic feta dip that is delicious! This hummus with the oil looks great too! Can’t wait to try it!

    I love guacamole and anything with cilantro!

  • Christina

    Fresh salsa and guac… mmm spicy chunky creamy tasty goodness smooshed altogether on chip!

    I really enjoy taco layered bean dip (so does my hubby). I have to say that I listened to your podcast with Joy the Baker today, and I’ve never left a comment(mainly because I thought they were a hassle for you to keep up with). That said, you do an amazing job!! I love your photos and recipes. Keep your chin up!! 🙂

  • Kathryn

    My favorite dip is hummus, and I looooove cilantro, so this is PERFECT! Yum!

    I love trader joe’s white bean hummus, it’s amazing. Now that the weather is warming up though I’m excited to add some more tzatziki into the mix!

  • Sarah

    I don’t think I can pick one favorite dip! Hummus, guacamole, clam dip, spinach artichoke dip, even queso dips (as terrible for you as they are) all have a special place in my heart!

  • Allie

    My favorite dip is spinach dip. I could eat it all day, every day!

  • Rebecca @ Runner with an Appetite

    Being a Marylander, I love a nice hot crab dip. Can’t beat it!

  • Carrie

    Guacamole and salsa have my heart.

  • Kristin A.

    I’m secretly a huge fan of onion dip. I almost never eat it, and would never buy it, but if it’s at a party I can’t resist. My favorite dip that I’ve made is this Lemon, Pepper & Pecorino Dip from Real Simple ( It’s very rich, so you don’t indulge too much.

    • Deborah

      Total agreement with you on Onion! I love it too! Great recipe on bon appetite for a carmelized onion one!

  • Jess

    All dips. For real. I could never choose just one! My favorite & go to dinner is “picnic” with as many dips as I can find.

  • Peggy Urban

    Favorite dip this spring is mango onion garlic avocado lemon juice salsa. Yum! With some Boulder Canyon ancient grains chips! Yum Yum!

  • Zoë

    I’m such a salsa fiend. I’ll have it on any and everything.

    For me, it’s a toss-up between hummus and tzatziki.

  • erica barraca

    my favorite dip is definitely guacamole!

  • Kelly

    Vitamix!!!!!!! Thanks for the giveaway!! I really do love hummus and it’s the dip that I eat most often however, if health isn’t an issue, I would say my favorite dip is spinach-artichoke or something really cheesy!

  • Sarah

    I make my hummus with lots of garlic. I am such a garlic lover, but the cilantro is a great idea for some spring-time zip!

  • alison

    Favorite dip? Those layered Mexican dealies with salsa, cheese, chili, and the kitchen sink in it!

  • Kelly

    I love making a hummus-like dip with white beans instead of garbanzos!

  • Andrea M

    guacamole is my favorite!

  • Caty


  • Becky


  • Emily

    I don’t really love dips, isn’t that weird?!! But I did just try hummus for the first time and kind of fell in love with it. So I guess by default that’s my favorite?

  • Whitney

    My favorite dip is whipped feta! Add a little lemon, olive oil, salt + pepper…goes with just about anything you want to dip into it! YUM! 😉

    Cheese dip… no shame here 🙂

    My favorite dip is salsa!

  • Kate Swarthout

    I would love to have a vitamix to make asparagus soup! I know it isn’t really a dip, however don’t you hate those strings from the asparagus messing up a perfectly good soup! The vitamix would take care of that!

  • Britt Carter

    Nothing beats a light classic hummus with lots of squeezed lemon! YUM!!!

  • Hanan

    My favorite dip is salsa!

  • Kelsey

    My favorite dip is a recipe for homemade salsa my dad got off the wall the bathroom of a Mexican restaurant.

    My favorite smoothie: Dates, cacao, strawberry, homemade almond milk, banana, and candied ginger. YUM.

  • madeleine

    My favorite dip is a super-naughty full fat cheesy spinach and artichoke dip! Can’t resist!

  • deborah

    I really don’t think of “hummus” as a dip since I use it on so many things. Think I am old school. I love a great onion dip. Grew up in Buffalo where BISON brand French onion dip was a staple at EVERY family gathering. Today like a upgraded variation – caramelized onion dip with some Krinkle cut potato chips 🙂

  • Kalila

    My favorite dip is mango avocado salsa!

  • Lauren @ La Dolce Pita

    really garlicky guacamole … YUM.

  • Kristen D.

    Salsa is my favorite dip, especially sweet & spicy ones.

    Can’t go wrong with a classic Tzatziki dip – greek yogurt, cucumber, garlic, and lemon!? YUM!

  • Jennifer

    I am in love with the crazy feta dip!

  • Jenn

    7-Layer Taco Dip, eaten when drunk, with best friends.

  • Julia

    What an awesome give-away!! My favorite dip is a good guacamole. Or anything with melted cheese…

  • Jen

    I’m with Cooper, give me some plain d hummus any day!

  • Kimia

    My favorite dip is call Mast-o-moussir, roughly translated to yogurt and shallot. It’s a blend of rich, thick Greek-style yogurt, minced shallot, and fresh dill. It’s amazing on flatbread, with pita, or alongside any middle eastern dish!

  • Emily

    I love salsas that have fruit in them… Fresh pineapple salsa, yum!

  • Kate

    GUACAMOLE!! So easy to throw together and delicious on so many things… or right off the spoon. 😉

  • katie c.

    I have been pining for a Vitamix for what feels like forever! Favorite dip is red pepper hummus, but this would also be perfect for daily am smoothies- greek yogurt, flax, chia, spinach, frozen blueberries, strawberries, mango and pineapple and fresh sliced banana

  • Claire

    BUFFCHICKDIP. (Uh, Buffalo Chicken Dip.) Not nearly as healthy as this hummus, but daaaannnngggg it’s good stuff.

  • Catie

    I love good whipped, baked feta and parsley petso dip!

  • Kate B

    There’s a Vegetarian Times asian edamame dip that my husband I make regularly and it is DELIGHTFUL.

  • Caley

    My favorite dip is hummus for sure! Especially with roasted red peppers and garlic. That vitamix is just what I need!

  • Jackie

    I think it is a tie between guacamole and lemon/garlic hummus! I usually buy wholefoods brand hummus, but I would love to try making my own:)

  • Erica Zamora

    I love a sour cream, goat cheese and rosemary dip paired with roasted garlic on baguette! Trust me. So simple and it will kill you dead, it is so delicious.


  • Kerri

    My favorite dip is chunky guacamole! A close second is salsa. When I was younger I’d end up just eating it with a spoon so doesn’t really count as a dip in that case 🙂 What an awesome giveaway – I’ve been dreaming of a Vitamix for so long!

  • Dandi D

    I love roasted garlic hummus!

  • Vanessa

    My favorite dip is anything mayo-based – like mayo mixed with garlic, chives, onion powder and cheese powder. You can dip pizza in it, chicken skewers, meatballs, fish fingers, french fries. Om nom nom nom. Straight to my thighs! 🙂

  • Mandy

    I LOVE hummus. I can eat it on or with just about anything. My latest favorite is on raw green beans!

  • Sharon Miodovsky

    Anything Shutterbean recommends, duh!

  • Dani

    Hummus, salsa, tzatziki…you name it, I love it.

  • Samantha Haltman

    Wasabi edamame Hummus. MMMMM. so good on everything.

  • Mama Jane

    Guacamole is more like a food group than a dip, but if it counts as a dip, it is my fave!
    Our old Oster blender is on its last legs and I’ve been dying for a Vitamix. I have a smoothie for breakfast every day! I would completely freak out if I won. Thanks, Tracy!

  • Erin

    I have a tie for my favorite dip! My husband’s homemade guac OR Trader Joe’s Cilantro Jalapeño Hummus. I could eat the whole container!!

  • Stephanie

    I don’t have it as often as I’d like but babaganoush is a favorite. Smokey, roasted eggplant..yum!

  • Marissa

    It’s a tie between hummus and guac! Hard to pick. I do eat hummus daily (or multiple times daily) so that might win.

  • Lorie O.

    I’m a sucker for guacamole or any type of nacho/taco dip! I need a Vitamix in my life!!

  • Anemilyb

    Oh I do indeed love the hummus, but I especially love it with a huge dollop of Aardvark hot sauce. Then I’ll dip veggies and plantain chips in it all the live long day!

  • Caitlin

    My favorite is the Trader Joe’s sour cream and onion dip. It’s probably so bad for me but I can’t resist it!

  • Nicole Dykstra

    Favorite dip: All the Things Pesto with cannellini beans and almonds. Yum.

  • Megan

    I LOVE hummus, but my favorite dip really has to be queso. Mmmmm – cheesy. Thanks for the contest Tracy!

  • amy

    dreamy vitamix, guacamole is my favorite dip!

  • Sarah

    My fave dip…has got to be hummus! All sorts of variations, you can mix literally anything in with those gorgeous garbanzos. To win a Vitamix would be so dreamy- fingers crossed!

  • christina

    my favorite dip is a white bean hummus-y thing that you put everything bagel toppings in. it is fucking good and white beans are fucking cheap, just like me.

  • Morgan

    Hummus, pesto, or spinach and kale dip!

  • Dona

    Favorite dip most definitely guacamole with salsa coming in second and hummus a close third!

  • brandi

    my Texan best friend introduced me to real queso a few years back…nothing beats a good queso with freshly made tortilla chips! ::homer drool::

  • Caitlin

    My favorite dip is a cucumber dill dip that my grandmother used to make for me every summer. Summer had officially started once he made the dip. It goes with every kind of vegetable and even good on turkey wraps. I am kind of obsessed with this dip.

  • Ali

    Oh man, my favorite dip…I think it’s a toss up between hot crab, vidalia onion and queso. Om nom nom!

  • Kristen

    French Onion Dip with Ruffles is my ultimate guilty pleasure!

    umm.. seriously?! this sounds delish

    my favorite dip is harissa- particularly a version by cava mezzo grill in DC, they’re now sold at whole foods. so. so. good

  • Tyler Orizotti

    My favorite and an absolute crowd-pleaser is Black Bean Jalapeno Hummus. Great on its own as a dip or as a spread on a sandwich or panini:)!

  • Kelsey

    My absolute favorite is babaghanoush! Roasted eggplant and tahini and cumin deliciousness. Tastes like a smokey herbed vegetable creamy dip! And about 4 ingredients total 🙂

  • Jessica L.

    I just made a batch of hummus today! Either it or salsa is probably my favorite dip.

  • Jennifer Cullen

    My favorite is a garlicky, smoky babaganush.

  • Alex

    My dad’s side of the family makes the most delicious dip lovingly known as ‘shrimp dip’, with blue cheese, tiny shrimp, and grated onion in a cream cheese base. It sounds a little weird, but it is so good!

  • Ashley @ Hudson on the Potomac

    My favorite dip is hummus!!! I make my own by swapping greek yogurt for the tahini.

  • Whitney B.

    My fav. dip is this cheesy chorizo concoction my father in law makes. Pair it with freshly fried tortilla chips and i could eat it like an entree!

  • ayris

    Guacamole is my favorite!

  • Shaina Brown

    guilty pleasure – french onion dip. now, how can we put a healthy spin on that?

  • Emily

    I was going to say hummus for bonus points but let’s be real, GUACAMOLE!!!

  • christina

    Homemade ranch dip. Once you make it from scratch you will never go back.

  • Emily

    I have to pick ONE favorite? I’m going to have to go with guacamole. I can make a meal out of that stuff.

  • Emily

    My favorite dip is guacamole! I can eat loads and loads of it. I prefer mine to have plenty of lime juice, salt, and SPICE from onion and jalapeno! I would love a Vitamix!

  • Molly Martin

    Crab dip… Especially with the classy Club crackers

  • Sarah O

    Jalapeno cilantro hummus! Or onion dip.

  • Kelsey

    My favorite dip has to be GUACAMOLE. All day, err day.

  • Colleen Chido

    Love me some spinach artichoke dip n guilty pleasure of buffalo chicken wing dip

  • Megan B.

    Carmelized sweet onion dip… delish!

  • Eleanor Thadani

    Truffle hummus! Just a classic hummus recipe with a smudge of truffle oil mixed in. Amazing! Great on veggies, amazing on pita chips… I honestly eat it with a spoon sometimes.

  • Rebecca

    I love tzaziki dipping sauce!

  • Maggie

    Guacamole! Leftovers are a mathematical impossibility.

  • Maggie

    Guacamole! Leftovers are a mathematical impossibility.

  • alisonofagun

    The old school spinach dip from the veggie soup mix, with water chestnuts. AW YISS!

  • maggie b

    such and awesome giveaway! my favorite dip by far is green goddess. but, some french onion with ruffles potato chips is a close runner up:)

  • Hannah W.

    My favorite dip is hummus with chickpeas, edamame, and lots of garlic! Also, guacamole.

  • Shelley

    favorite dip is edamame hummus: both the Trader joes and homemade variety! 🙂

  • Melissa

    Pretzels in honey mustard dip. Tortilla chips in guacamole. Pita chips and veggies in homemade fairytale eggplant dip. Everything tastes better with dip!

  • Jane

    Greek Yogurt Spinach Dip!

  • Amanda Neill

    Roasted garlic hummus is my safe, healthy, answer. But the truth is pimento cheese dip and only if my friend Kacey makes it. Mind blowingly delicious…..

  • Daniela

    Spinach dip, but I also settle for artichoke…

  • Beverly

    Ooh, I love me some hummus, but I don’t think I could live without a good ol’ basic sour cream and onion dip!

  • Emalie

    My favorite dip is hands down muhammara. It’s a spicy Syrian dip consisting of roasted red peppers, walnuts, breadcrumbs and some pomegranate molasses for tang. It’s good on crackers and bread, but also slathered on chicken or as a sauce for fish. Love it!

  • Samantha Lipsie

    We enjoy white bean dip – cannellini beans puréed with garlic, lemon, olive oil and garnished with chopped parsley. Served with toasted pita chips.

  • Anna

    I come from Texas, the land where it’s appropriate (and sometimes expected) to serve queso at every meal. Favorite dip, hands down. White queso with chilis. Yellow queso with cilantro. Chorizo. Onions. On a tortilla. On a chip. On everything. Best stuff ever.

  • Libby

    I’ve been so into dips lately and here I am without a food processor OR a decent blender. Enter: this contest.
    I love any dip that’s got a greek yogurt base that I can dip my fresh veggies into. Please add feta (to everything all the time always).

  • Nicole

    I could down an entire bag of Tostitos Multigrain Scoops with a batch of homemade pico de gallo. Although it might defeat the purpose of a healthy dip. I would love to try this hummus. It looks dreamy!

  • Kate Donohue

    Ooooohhh… It’s like asking me to pick a favorite cocktail (Moscow Mule I’m lookin at you). But I’d have to say a good ol fashioned creamy artichoke dip is my número uno. If we’re gettin really specific here, then I’d also add that heating it up in a cast iron skillet over an open fire deep in the trees is the best way to experience this deliciousness.

  • Cara


  • CC

    It’s a tough one…I’d have to go with bean dip, or wait hot artichoke dip.

  • Cheryl

    Guacamole! Or hummus with a little tahini…yum so good!

  • Ashley

    Fave dip: guacamole with lots of lime and black pepper and finely chopped onion. But I’m also addicted to buffalo sauce to dip (or drip) on almost anything. Love the addition of an herb-oil to the top of hummus to keep it interesting!

    • Sharon McGrath

      My favorite dip is guacamole but hummus is a close second! Thanks for the great recipe!!

  • Christine

    Guacamole. And onion dip. And spinach dip. Mmmmm….dip. 🙂

  • Cory

    Although hummus is my most-consumed dip because I try to act like a responsible adult most of the time, my favorite dip is queso! You can make your own by tossing cubed or grated cheese with cornstarch, then melting it in a saucepan along with some evaporated milk. Add any spices your heart desires — I love roasted green chiles!

  • Sasha

    My favorite is Spinach, Articoke & Goat Cheese Dip from a restaurant in Toronto. Its so good, I could just eat that for the rest of my life!

  • Hilary

    If I’m being honest it’s Buffalo Chicken Dip! But if I’m ‘trying’ to be healthy it would be spicy hummus!

  • Janine Bandick

    It has to be my guacamole and it’s a family hit. Every get together they ask for it you think they would be sick of it but no:)

  • Adrianna from A Cozy Kitchen

    Spinach Dip! AHH! That’s my favorite dip. I want a Vitamix pretty badly; here’s to hoping I win!

    It’s a three way tie between guacamole, hummus or BLT dip!

  • Emilee

    This looks amazing!! My favorite dip is definitely guacamole, but especially guacamole WITH salsa verde! The combination is just the very best thing.

  • Beth Summerfield

    Oh me oh my. The possibilities are endless! Roasted red pepper hummus is a strong contender, but I have to say that guacamole owns my heart. I. Love. It! Thanks for the opportunity! Cheers!

    Guacamole with blue corn chips……yummy!

  • Jordanna Arbogast

    I made a dill pickle hummus the other day for a girls night that was pretty heavenly…a friend asked if I bought it at the farmers market! Totally made my day 🙂

  • Kate

    I could eat my weight in roasted red pepper hummus. But, tzanziki is a close second.

  • Lauren

    I thought about this question for way too long! Mmmm, so many yummy dips to chose from; if I had to choose just one it’d be a yummy homemade onion dip!

  • Kelly Bowman

    Eggplant and tahini spread with toasted baguette or chilled cucumber slices!

  • Jennie Ridley

    Pimento cheese please! White cheddar, a little cream cheese, grated onion and dukes mayo (obviously). Yum!

  • Emily

    My favorite dip is roasted garlic hummus, made with love by my boyfriend!

  • Yvette

    Tracy! Just listened to the podcast & way to hit it strong with a giveaway. You have people like me that love what you do & appreciate everything you put in. As far as favorite dip goes, looks like it might be this one. Or I’ve seen recipes for corn & jalapeño hummus. Mmmm.

  • Chelsea

    roasted garlic hummus!! always and forever <3 <3

  • Kaylen

    My favorite, all-time, 100% dip is guacamole!!

  • Emily R

    An easier question to answer would be, what’s NOT your favorite dip? I love them all…but it’s probably a cross between guacamole and spinach artichoke dip. 🙂

  • Katie Rice

    Caramelized Onion Dip or Guacamole its a big toss up. Both are full of savory deliciousness.

  • maya

    oh dips, i love you. spinach artichoke, guac, onion, homemade hummos, tzakiki, teramisalata are just a few. would love a vitamix!

  • Matthew Plympton

    year for an Oscar’s weekend party. <3

  • Casey W

    I know this will be so unoriginal, but i really just love homemade hummus. I could eat a gallon of it. Perhaps I shouldn’t have a Vitamix?!?! But I promise if I win I’ll make lots of green smoothies to balance out all the hummus and milkshakes!

  • Erin Jacobs

    Looooove anything spicy and lots of tzatziki!!!

  • Shabnam Sheikh

    Roasted red bell pepper hummus! This looks amazing though, I’ll have to try it.

  • veronica

    My husband and I are hooked on a cheese dip that they make at Fred Meyer. It could probably use a makeover to do away with the mayo but it is: shredded jarlsberg cheese, mayo, and sliced red onion. Creamy delicious and addictive. Favorite smoothie ingredients: ripe banana, cinnamon, milk, and spinach with a drop of almond extract.

  • Stephanie Zhang

    Smoked salmon cream cheese dip! but guacamole is a close favorite too! 🙂

    My favorite dip is definitely guacamole! I like all different varieties. Recently, I tried one that had pomegranate seeds in it and it was delicious.

  • Sarah Mac

    Oh my goodness! This recipe reminds me of the first time I had a bit of my favorite dip! It had never occurred to me to put black beans in hummus instead of garbanzos. And then use cilantro, lime, and olive oil. It’s great on everything!!

    I’m from Texas, so I have to say either salsa or guacamole. What a great giveaway!

    I mentioned it yesterday on the homefries podcast page, but I’m LOVING your meal prep posts, and have been reading The Everlasting Meal (that you mentioned, and I suspect inspired the meal preps). Anyway, I made your basil/parsely or was it cilantro pesto recently, and have been loving that. I mixed it into a scramble this morning and smeared it on flatbread last night.

    Crossing fingers- I’ve coveted a vitamix for years!

    No judgements please…..Ranch! It’s good on everything 🙂

    Guacamole! But hummus is a close second.

  • Claire Dieterich

    It’s a tie between guacamole and hummus!

    My favorite dip is really a type of hummus…Beet Hummus! It’s super simple to make.

    Boil the beets in a pan of water until tender/soft, about 15 minutes or so depending on the size of the beets. Drain and allow to cool slightly. Remove skins.

    Chop beets and place into food processor with chickpeas, tahini, garlic, lemon and cumin. Mix and enjoy!

    My favorite dip is one that my mom used to make when I was younger. It has softened cream cheese on the bottom, a layer of Hormel chili, topped with cheddar cheese and heated up. Then it is sprinkled with chopped tomatoes and scallions. Served with tortilla chips, it’s something I crave often!

    I’d be remiss to not mention queso. Since moving to Texas from the midwest, I cannot get enough of this cheese dip. It is so much more than that bright orange stuff in the jar. Who knew!?

  • Deb Cusic

    My favorite dip is one that my husband’s family has always made. They call it Cusic Dip. Put one package of cream cheese into a mixing bowl, add a little half and half to mix until creamy. Grate one half of a white onion into the bowl, add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of sliced green olives, a couple dashes of hot sauce and stir. Serve with potato chips or veggies!

  • Olivia

    My favorite dip is a lentil dip made with greek yogurt, lentils, chopped baby spinach, basil, parsley, garlic, olive oil, and pine nuts. Great with pita or spread on toasted bread. Yum!

  • Angie Jerde

  • Leslie

    That hummus looks delicious…so I want to say hummus, but in reality? Guacamole!!

  • Heather R.

    Salsa & hummus I could eat all day!

  • Holly

    I make a roasted red pepper and feta dip occasionally (because if it’s around, I can’t keep my hands off of it!) It’s like hummus, but much more indulgent.

  • Lynn

    I love a dip made with Greek Yogurt, Feta, Mint, Garlic, Lemon juice and Zest, Green Onions and Cayenne Pepper. I usually mix it by hand but would be great in a Vitamix!

  • Heidi

    Helluva Good French Onion dip! An Erie, PA hometown classic.

  • Jen

    Guac!!! So much guac. I also have a weakness for French onion dip, especially with Ruffles…

  • Ann

    I’ve always wanted one ! My kiddos love smoothies too.

  • Ashley

  • Emily D

    Fave dip is probably Guacamole and salsa but I’d take a good
    Homemade spinach dip anytime! Love hummus too but I’ve never made it!

  • Lauren

    My favorite dip is one I make by blending up cashews, a jar of roasted red peppers, a drizzle of olive oil, a clove of garlic and a pinch of salt. Good for crackers, veggies and even a great pizza topping if you are looking to go cheese free.

  • Erin

    My favorite dip is my family recipe shrimp dip!

  • Katie

    Definitely guacamole!

  • Erin

    Favorite dip? If I am being bad, queso with tortilla chips. Otherwise the salsa from el napolito is killer here in SD

    All about the white bean dip from the Skinny Bitch in the Kitch cookbook. Can’t even tell it’s vegan. And now that my blender has bit the dust, hoping to get a nice Vita to replace…

  • Caitlin B

    Specifically Trader Joe’s edemame hummus. Yum!

  • Sarah R.

    So just a fyi there’s a bit of conflicting info- the official rules say “post detailing what goes into your favorite smoothie” not dip, but since the site says dip& that’s what everybody else is going with, I’ll say guacamole.

  • Heather

    My favorite dip is TJ’s Spinach Dip! If you could recreate this on your blog I would love you forever 🙂

  • Sam

    Dip is basically an entire food group for me, so it’s hard to pick a favorite! Guacamole and spinach dip are at the top!

    Fave dip is a vegan roasted onion dip! But then, its hard to beat guac, hummus,guac, vegan ranch, guac….

  • Erica

    Sweet potato hummus is the new fave dip around here!

  • Melissa

    I love guacamole!

    Can I be honest? Because honesty is the rule. I love the gross queso dip and tortilla chips. I love it. I’ll eat the whole thing and deny that I did it.

  • Kimberly

    CHEESE DIP!! but I won’t turn down some fresh hummus or guac!

  • Annie

    This is a tough one, but I have to go with salsa verde. Fresh, zingy and hot!

  • stacie

    my fav dip is a shrimp taco layered dip!

  • Ellen

    I love caramelized onion dip…. with thyme and shallots, too! It’s such an old Southern fave for gamedays, etc, but it’s great anytime. Gotta love a dip with sour cream and mayo…

  • kelly

    guacamole! I’ve always wanted a Vitamix:)))) Love you Tracy

  • Anne Wolfcale

    I have to say that my favorite dip (and the one that I get requests for the most, which is pleasing) is green goddess dip. I love the herbaciousness!

  • seattleheather

    Spicy Hummus from Trader Joe’s but I would make my own if I had a vitamix! 😉 Love your blog & recipes! 🙂

    My mother-in-law makes a oyster dip that is dangerous — once I start eating I can’t stop! Also, I’ve wanted a Vitamix for forever, so pick me!!

    Guacamole for sure!

  • Charity

    My favorite dips always include spinach, artichokes, and roasted garlic. HEAVEN!

  • JESS

    Oh, Tracy what a baller giveaway you have going on here. A Vitamix?! You’re movin’ on UP, girl.

    Here’s why I would LOVE one – to make beet and goat cheese dip with lots of thyme, olive oil and lemon juice. Blend that baby up in 20 seconds. Yes, please.

  • Katie

    Chips and salsa are my go to favorite unless nachos count as a dip.

  • Tina/@teenbug

    Hummus. Hummus. Hummus!!!! #myfave

  • Robin

    White bean hummus with a touch of sriracha sauce blended in.

  • Rachel

    Have wanted a Vitamix for a year now but just can’t afford it…maybe I’ll win! Favorite dip is curried shrimp dip! Poach shrimp in lemon, white wine, garlic and water then chill, chop and mix into Greek yogurt, herbed goat cheese, curry powder and a touch of smoked paprika

  • Goreti Tada

    My all tine favorite dip is Guacamole! Simple yet so tasty.

  • ally

    There’s just something about a french onion dip and ruffly, salty potato chips. Best ever.

  • Hilary

    Oh my gosh! Salsa is probably my favorite dip!

    Dips comprise what I’m sure to be an unhealthy percentage of my food pyramid, so it’s hard to pick just one. But for a Vitamix, I will. Guacamole, all the way!!

  • Claire Helene

    OMG!! A vitamix giveaway!!! AMAZING. Hummus is my favorite dip. Or baba ganoush from Sultan Mart in Chicago. I love dips.

  • Mallory

    My favorite dip is guacamole!

  • Bri K.

    My favorite dip in the whole WORLD is something I make that my friends call “crack dip”. It’s essentially a salsa ranch that we dip blue corn tortillas in and it is AMAZING. The only thing that would make it MORE amazing would be to make it in a vitamix… ;]

  • Madeline

    Extra garlick-y hummus with dried chickpeas I cook myself. YUM!

  • MaryB

    I love spicy hummus with some extra lemon and cumin. This cilantro hummus looks delicious and I will be trying it soon.

  • Jenny

    Babaganoush – the eggplant MUST be charred to get that smokey flavor. I vary it by adding chopped cilandro and some lemon or lime juice and roasted garlic. Sometimes I had lemon and tahnini it all depends on how much time I have and how much effort I want to put in it. 🙂

  • Andrea

    I love all things dip, but my hands down favorite is classic hummus.

  • Silvia

    Old style home made mayonaise, made with olive oil from Spain

    I am a sucker for a classic hummus but I like to mix up some herbs and greek yogurt for a quick (and healthy) veggie dip.

  • Joy

    Hummus is my favorite dip, and my favorite hummus is the original tahini-free hummus at Trader Joes. I LOVE it.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  • Kenny

    For the record, my wife says to tell you that we mixed up a storm with our vintage Vita-Mix for almost 50 years until it finally was laid to rest. Great machines, they are. Here’s a dip for you, smooth and smokey: can of cannellini beans, handful of Kalamata olives, some / olive oil / lemon juice / garlic / herbs as you please. You know you’ve got the right amount of olives in there when you have a rich, deep color. You may not need to add any salt, but sprinkle sea salt on top to be fancy. Add french bread, almonds and cheese chunks for dippin’, along with the veggies. First had this in a restaurant in New Orleans. Still love it.

  • Amelia Tranchina

    I am a fan of several dips, however my two favorite are guacamole and hummus made with almond butter.

  • Marisa

    Walnut, spinach, garlic, lemon juice, pepper & pinch of salt. Amazing.

  • Suzanne Hazlett

    I love good ‘ol french onion dip: Lipton onion soup mix stirred into a container of sour cream, with a big bag of Lay’s for dipping!

  • Maggie

    My favorite dip is spinach and white bean dip served with veggies or pita chips. It tastes rich and creamy but is super healthy, so you can load up your chips.

  • Katrina @ Warm Vanilla Sugar

    My favorite dip is definitely spinach and artichoke!! xx

  • Lamisa

    My favorite dip has got to be seven layer dip!

  • Laura

    It’s a tie between pesto and guac!

  • Melody

    Cream Cheese! plain, herb flavored, mixed with cheese and nuts on top, with crackers, veggies, chips. 🙂

  • Emily

    My favorite dip of the moment is ricotta and honey, not quite as healthy but a delicious treat!

  • Chelsea

    SALSA!! Hands down my favorite dip!

  • Lora Mariottini

    Love white or garbanzo beans, garlic and avocado. Mix it up with a little olive oil cilantro or parsley.

  • Madhavi

    I love hummus!
    I do have a question though, regarding the vitamix. What is the smallest volume/amount that is needed for everything to get blended well? Thanks!

  • Sagar

    I love olive and artichoke dip with toasted baguette slices.

  • Nécole

    I just made a fairly awesome smoked trout rillette on Easter, loosely based on an amazing herring rillette I’d eaten at a French cafe recently. Definitely on the top of my family’s list of current favorites.

  • Maddie (Hungry Curious)

    Any sort of avocado dip!! Love me some guac. Can’t wait to try this cilantro oil though, looks yummy!

  • Morgan

    Omg WANT!!!!

    What’s my favorite dip? Spinach artichoke. (Which is basically cheese dip, but I love how it leads with the healthy stuff so I can pretend I’m doing my tummy a solid.)

  • April

    Favourite dip it a white creamy queso dip. Spicy, smooth and so out of this world! Yummy.

  • Rhi


  • Carly

    Lately it’s hummus and salsa – at the same time! And there’s always guacamole. I love dip.

  • Megan

    Olive nut spread!

    Love Artichoke Dip! Thanks for the chance to win. Love your blog. Will be pinning this recipe, looks yummy.

  • Kate

    Ranch Dip! Combine equal parts sour cream + mayo, add one clove raw garlic, a generous bunch of chives, a splash of buttermilk and salt to taste.

  • Anjya

    Favorite: I’m from Texas originally and you can order quest with a scoop of guac in it, or taco meat, or both!! Lots of dips I love, but any variation of this one takes the cake.

  • fabiola@notjustbaked

    It is totally hard picking one favorite dip, but if I must, hummus in any way shape of form. Hummus is so versatile, I love it.

  • Kelly Mitchem

    I had a white bean and green olive humus in Canada that I love to recreate!

  • Chelsea

    All the guacamole for me!! Or black beans, cottage cheese, and salsa mixed together, mmmm.

    I love love love salsa!

  • pamela

    oh my oh my! i have been making smoothies and nut butters and dips in blenders for years, all the while dreaming of the day when i might be able to buy a vitamix! so awesome.

    my favorite dip these days is mixing greek yogurt with roasted beets and tons of garlic. maybe a little lemon and chives. it comes out bright beautiful pink and is always a big favorite at parties (noone else brings a hot pink beet dip). thanks for the chance!

  • Auntie lenie

    Love hummus but always peel the bonzo beans- am I nuts? Maybe a vitamix will make it smooth enough for my taste!

  • Cathy

    Artichoke dip

  • Panya

    Plain Greek yogurt, peanut butter, and agave syrup, with apples slices to dip into it = yum.

    My husband LOVES hummus, though he mostly just eats it on bread like a sandwich spread.

  • Kayla

    My favorite dip is aioli. Especially with fries!

  • Rachel

    My husband makes an amazing onion dip- with caramelized onions and all kinds of other wonderful flavors. It’s good with veggies, chips, and I’ve been known to put a schmear on sandwiches too!

  • Claudia from Idiot's Kitchen

    Guacamole! I don’t even need a tortilla chip. I’ll happily eat it with a spoon.

  • brittany

    I’m a guac girl, but I also have an endless spot reserved in my heart for a good spinach artichoke.

  • Angel

    The classic: guacamole. Close second: arugula walnut dip on everything!

  • Christine A

    GUACAMOLE!! Always Guacamole.

  • Sarah

    7-layer Bean Dip!

  • Sofie T.

    My favorite dips involve guacamole, hummus or beans.

  • Meredy

    My latest obsession: silky mung bean hummus topped with a sprinkling of dukkah, smoked paprika, and fresh parsley. I’ve been using an ol oster blender for far too long. I could put this Vitamix to use!

  • Carrie

    I’m from Texas , so I have to say Queso!

  • Karen

    I love hummus made with Cannellini beans. It makes it really smooth and creamy!

  • kate

    my favorite dip to make is spicy/sweet black bean hummus! just throw in a little cayenne and pineapple along with the oil/salt/pepper. tasty!

  • Michelle Naomi

    Ranch! Everything tastes delicious with it, especially homemade!

  • Michael


  • Isabel Alencar

    I absolutely LOVE hummus! Any flavor, any time. I’ve never tried to make it but you’ve just inspired me.

  • Stinds

    Does peanut butter count as a dip? I’m pretty sure my bodies made up of 80% pb.
    The other 20% might be hot sauce.

  • Jennie Hawes

    Guacamole is my fave!

  • Novita

    Olive tapenade, if that can be considered a dip. Yum! Thanks so much!

  • Lizzie

    Gotta be guac! amole!

    What a great giveaway!

    creamy crab dip!

  • Jo Lammert

    My favorite dip is probably tzatziki! Love it, especially tzatziki with a lot of dill!

  • Natalie

    Like many others, I love a good guacamole! There’s a restaurant where we live that has a chopped guac which I LOVE even more than the traditional creamy style.

  • Jenny

    I love guacamole especially with tortilla chips.

  • Ashley

    Hummus is my friend!

  • evelyn

    Guac is king and made most often, but I make a lot of hummus with roasted garlic for my currently-vegetarian toddler. I’ve always wanted a vitamix to have the power to blend tougher veggies like beets and celery and carrots into my smoothies. Pick me please!

  • kat campesi

    hummus! ALL THE HUMMUS.

  • Leah

    Guacamole for sure! With cilantro, onion, tomatoes, garlic, salt, lime, cumin, and perfectly ripe avocados ..all the good stuff!

  • Julie

    Wow, I’m having trouble picking a favorite. I didn’t realize I loved dip so much. I’m going to say ranch dressing.

  • Teresa

    My favorite dip is hummus! We love dreaming up crazy flavors and making our own.

  • Emily

    Dip of choice: honey mustard!

  • Jamie P

    Guacamole is best dip ever~~~

  • Sara @ Confectionary Tales

    Any sort of mexican dip but I love salsa and guac!

  • judith

    Years ago, at a party, I had this cheesy, garlicy artichoke dip that was served in a bread bowl. I almost killed myself eating that dip. It was so yummy that I wanted to make a sandwich of it, but thought it would have been more rude than my smacking people’s hands as they tried to get a bit of the dip. At the end of the evening the hostess asked me if I’d like the almost empty bread bowl to take home. I accepted and had a garlic hangover the next morning. Do you have a recipe for this dip?

  • Christie Ryan

    My favorite dip is spinach artichoke dip, but guacamole I will never turn down!

  • Allyson


  • Crystal F

    Bean Dip!

  • Megan

    Right now I’m super in love with Cafe Yumm’s signature yumm sauce. I’ve been making a similar version at home and am putting that stuff on everything!

  • Sarah P.

    My favorite dip is cream cheese mixed with pesto. My mom used to make it for parties when I was little, so I always feel fancy when I eat it!

  • Kirstin

    Hummus is definitely a favorite of mine as well… Occasionally a ranch-type dressing (something about it screams summer picnic to me, and thats usually when I crave it) … And does spinach-artichoke dip count? Because YUM!

  • Emily D.

    Picking a favorite dip is like picking a favorite child for me! Roasted red pepper hummus is definitely up there but so is guac. Don’t make me choose! (Oh, God. I just remembered spinach artichoke dip!)

  • Lucia

    Salsa! I also love hummus and french onion dip, but salsa is my all time favorite. 🙂

  • Ruth C

    Who can decide? Plain hummus, guacamole, chili cheese.

  • Kimberly


  • Kate

    Oh my gosh. Basically, if you can call it a dip, it’s my favorite. Hummus, guacamole, spinach and artichoke, French onion…they’re all delicious! Also I will put ranch dressing on just about anything, so that should probably be on the list too, because you can dip things in it, right? 🙂

  • Kendra V.

    A super tahini-y hummus! But this looks AMAZING! I just listened to you and Joy today was going to send an uplifting comment to help you get out of your blogger burnout – but it looks like you are powering through. Hype machine, indeed!

  • Erica

    I’ve got to represent Maryland and say crab dip!

  • Smyth

    I can really get down with a bowl of olive tapenade.

  • Joanna

    It’s a toss up between guacamole, hummus and arugula pesto with walnuts. Your blog rules!

  • Sarah

    I love making taco dip or reuben dip. Yum!

  • Elizabeth Pacheco Rose

    Hummus and Baba ghanoush w/ so much tahini & lemon!!

  • morgan weiner

    I love a good queso (because, melted cheese).

  • Ashleigh

    Hummus in any form, especially roasted red pepper!

    Guacamole with a lot of lime, lemon, and pico!

  • Erin

    I eat A LOT of hummus– I don’t discriminate– with lemon, garlic, pesto, and I will be trying your cilantro oil recipe next!

  • Lucy Burton

    Hummus is definitely my favorite dip. Unfortunately I usually buy mine but would TOTALLY make it more often if I had a vitamix!

  • Sam H

    Roasted red pepper hummus! Love making it at home. Thanks for the giveaway!

  • Mary

    Favorite dip is artichoke spinach dip! Tied with guacamole. Tied with hummus. Tied with 7-layer dip. You get the idea.

  • Sydney

    Can I pick two? I can’t get enough of edamame hummus, but I love guacamole too!

  • Joslyn

    Spinach & artichoke dip – made with freshly steamed artichoke hearts … yum!

  • rikki

    Hummus!!! I used to waitress at a Middle Eastern restaurant and would eat hummus in obscene quantities every day. Tastes amazing with anything.

  • Krissa

    That’s an impossible question…but I guess if I had to pick just one I’d say guacamole!

  • Emma

    My favorite dip would be pesto! I know it’s not technically a dip, but it goes wonderfully with sliced tomatoes. I also recently made a spicy hummus which was amazing as well, no oil!

  • Patrice Dowrey

    What an amazing giveaway! My favorite dip is cookie butter, by I am looking forward to trying cilantro hummus.

  • Alyson

    I love the olive tapanade hummus that Sabra makes. Or spinach artichoke dip 😉

  • Katie

    I love soy sauce on everything! … That’s a dip right?

  • Leora

    Favorite Dip: Dukkah! It is great as a dip for bread, veggies even fruit. Or sprinkled on eggs, salads, sandwiches anything that needs extra crunch and flavor.

  • Emily

    If I’m being health-concious, spicy jalapeno hummus. If I’m not, good old onion dip. With fritos.

  • Tracy | Pale Yellow

    Guacamole! *whisper* I don’t like hummus… *whisper*

  • Kirsten

    Hummus. Definitely hummus. I’ve even got my husband liking it now too!

  • Connie

    This admission is probably not in keeping with the general theme of the post but I really like ranch (I know, I know so bad for you). I also cannot say no to guacamole. So good!

  • Heather S

    Artichoke Parmesan is my most favorite 🙂

  • Kat

    Guacamole! Also baked artichoke dip is pretty fantastic.

  • Eileen

    Spicy hummus and spicy guacamole,please!

  • Jane

    Beet hummus rocks my world!

  • Krystal

    Oh man, I’m trying to think of a dip I don’t love. Salsa and hummus are at the top of my favorites.

  • Emily


  • Mona P.

    Hummus of course!!

  • Jeannettics

    Ahh, like everybody else: guacamole!

  • Ellie

    Spinach dip!!

  • Olivia Cozzetto

    Dilly Dip is the all time favorite at this house…but hummus is a close runner up!

  • Shayne

    Greek yogurt mixed with salsa

  • Nasim Bahman

    You can never go wrong with a classic hummus! It goes well with everything!

  • Shana

    Black bean and cilantro hummus! Black beans, cilantro, olive oil, water, lime juice, garlic, salt, cayenne pepper.

  • Alicia

    First- that hummus looks incredible. I could eat cilantro by the handful.
    Second- my favorite dip is a fresh, chopped salsa.

    Great giveaway!

  • Ellie H

    I recently made baba ganoush for the first time. Definitely my new favorite with a little smoked paprika on top!

  • libby

    so many yummy dips out there, but guac is the winner!

  • Helen

    my favorite is hummus! and maybe pesto…

  • Katie

    OMG I want!! My favorite dip is probably dill dip. Sour cream, dried or fresh dill and whatever else I feel like throwing in at the time. Garlic, onions, whatever I have on hand!

  • Lobster

    Any and all dips! And/or cheese. With lots of things to dip into them! Which is why all kinds of fondue are one of my favorite things ever, and if asked, I’ll say my favorite food is “party food”! Favorite dip has to be my mom’s hot crab dip, though.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  • Nicole

    I love white bean hummus made with Greek yogurt, lemon, garlic, and cilantro. It’s great with veggies/chips and also as a falafel sauce.

  • Catherine

    I’m torn between guacamole and hummus! So I’m gonna go with guaca-hummus 🙂

  • Anne

    Favorite dip=spinach artichoke dip! But hummus of all flavors is a close second.

  • Robin

    I love carrot hummus! It’s a favorite at our house 🙂

  • Lynn B

    If I have to pick one, it’s gotta be spinach dip in a hollowed out Hawaiian Bread bowl, using the scraps to dip. Yum! Thanks for the awesome contest – I’ve got my fingers crossed.

  • Anna

    My favorite dip is a hot artichoke-parmesan dip.

  • Sarica

    French onion dip!

  • Tara

    My favourite dip is hot nacho cheese dip – sometimes with spinach, sometimes not.

    I think that Vitamix wants to come live with me. I can see it in its eyes.

  • Kris Maiden

    Hey!! My favorite dip is Tzatziki with a bit of smoked paprika on the top.

  • Lisa

    I love a good spinach-artichoke dip (and bean dip and guacamole and hummus and salsa …).

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  • Katrina

    Lately I’ve been loving a goat cheese siracha combo. I eat it with cucumbers, it’s so yummy.

  • Sarah @ The Cyclist's Wife

    I love hummus but if I’m being unhealthy I love spinach artichoke dip!

  • Kaitlin Benjamin

    I love homemade hummus! My favorite is something really spicy with cumin and red pepper. That, or a delicious baba ganoush!

  • Jessica

    My favorite dip is spinach-artichoke! Yum! 🙂

  • Andrea

    I love roasted jalepeno hummus!

  • Athena R

    I love taco dip.

  • Hannah M.

    It’s hard to beat my aunt’s guacamole…but a good artichoke dip is a lovely thing sometimes. And in terms of things-that-one-can-dip-things-into, even if it’s not dip per se, there’s always the wonderful stuff known as fondue 🙂

  • Lisa

    I love guacamole! I could eat it everyday!!

  • Krista

    Guacamole for sure! Even better if it’s spicy and/or has tomato.

  • Susan H

    Love homemade hummus with lots of tahini and pine nuts and then topped with a swirl of fruity olive oil. Although, I’m about to try your cilantro oil. Sounds like a delicious topper!

  • Melissa N.

    Chunky guacamole

  • Danielle

    Black eyed peas/cowboy caviar

  • Sowmya

    My favorite dip is Spicy Peanut Garlic chutney! My mom makes it extra hot using red chiles and we make a rice and urad dal based bread to eat with it. Yum!

  • Myriam

    Anything cheesy! I love The Cheese!
    Also on the list is guacamole and red pepper hummus.

  • Amber Mouser

    I’ve been talking about getting a vitamix for about a year now! This would be so so awesome to win! Thanks Tracy for the chance to win it!

    My favorite dip is guacamole–so easy to make! I typically use HASS avocados, red onion, garlic, and about a cup of grape tomatoes, plus salt and pepper to taste. If my besti isn’t eating this, I’ll add cilantro as well.

  • Hillary

    Dips and condiments are my weakness! If I had to pick just one, it would have to be a hot and smoky salsa.

  • Lindsay Beeson

    Ding dong dang but I eat hummus almost every day. Favorite!

  • Jen

    My favorite dip is roasted garlic hummus!

  • Christine

    My dip of choice is guac with hint of lime tortilla chips. It’s like crack and I’m jonesin’.

  • sa collins

    Thank you for the giveaway. I would be grateful for such a wonderful gift.

  • Megan

    I love guacamole 😉 could eat it forever!

  • Claire

    My favorite dip is my boyfriend’s family’s go to chip dip they call it Egner Dip (their last name) it’s cottage cheese, cream cheese, a little bit of milk, and garlic salt blended together. It’s seriously delicious.

  • amanda june

    my favorite dip is probably an (easy-peasy!) blue cheese yogurt dip i started making for my husband. turns out he has pretty good taste 🙂 but i also love hummus — recently made it for the first time! i like it garlicky but also want to experiment with roasted red pepper hummus and other flavors. hear the vitamix is a a stud!! i’m with cooper though in the anti-cilantro movement 😉

  • Manasi

    My fave dip is either guacamole or a good baba ganoush. Hard to decide!

  • Ruthyfeedz

    Favorite hummus dip is roasted garlic with siracha

  • Sarah

    Guacamole is my favorite!

  • Jenny

    It’s by no means the healthy choice, but I’m pretty much a fan of any dip that is warm and cheesy!

  • Kerri

    Roasted red pepper hummus unless sriracha can be considered a dip. If so, sriracha!

  • Jenna

    Roasted red pepper hummus for sure!!

  • Liz Oleson

    Pico de gallo! Or any type of delicious salsa. Thanks for the giveaway and recipe, Tracy!

  • Lauren Gray

    My favorite dip is one that Mom makes on occasion, it is Tzatziki! I love the cucumbers and dill, so refreshing.

  • Kristen M.

    Yep, seven layer dip for me too since it can be changed up in so many different ways but it’s always delicious!

  • Kelsey

    My favorite dip is guacamole- with tons of lime juice and salt!

  • Kelsey

    For me, homemade guac is my favorite, but it’s a close one with my momma’s hot bean dip!

  • hanna

    Guacamole. With lots of lime and cilantro–perfection!

  • Vanessa

    Creamy ranch jalapeño dip with tortilla chips!

  • Claire @Lemon Jelly Cake

    Fresh salsa! Unless whipped cream counts as a dip. If it does, then whipped cream. 🙂 Thanks for the chance to win, Tracy!

  • mini-cake

    My favourite dip has to be one Martha Stewart’s Living magazine had printed. It’s an Artichoke Cheese dip and sooo good!

  • Rachel

    My favorite dip is super lemony hummus!

  • Eva

    I’m insane and have trouble picking one favorite. Depends on what your are dipping. Assorted flavors of hummus is always good. A caramelized onion dip is always good, either hot or cold. Then sometimes you want something super rich and creamy and then it’s something cheesy or spinach artichoke type dips. mmm I’m getting hungry just thinking about it now

  • Greg

    It has to be the classic French onion dip. But not the original recipe. I really like the one from Alton Brown on Food Network.

  • Lana

    Peanut butter/cinnamon dip with apple slices or banana – drizzle with flax oil and sprinkle with cocoa nibs. My favourite snack!

  • Mike G

    The lazy in me says Trader Joes Mediterranean Hummus, otherwise smokey baba ganoush all the way 🙂

  • Rachel

    I think my favorite dip is spinach artichoke dip!

  • Jessica

    I love hummus! Cilantro hummus sounds divine!

  • Hannah

    I love to make white bean dip with lemon and garlic. So tasty!

  • kimberly

    I love anything with sour cream. In fact, sour cream on its own is fantastic.

  • Alissa

    hummus is definitely my favorite dip… especially bobbi’s brand hummus!

  • Amy

    I’m going to be original and say guacamole. 😀 Or a vegan cashew-based queso, mmm.

  • Angela A

    Hummus is the best right up there with a tahini dressing like you put on the broccolini. I have wanted a Vitamix for a few years now. My old Black and Decker can’t handle the chickpeas.

  • Lyndsee

    My favorite is hummus. I love drizzling the olive oil (hmm, or cilantro oil) on top and then sprinkling a few reserved chickpeas on top. So good!

  • Bianca

    Hummus, definitely. The spicier the better!

  • DeAnna

    Spice black bean dip!

  • Paula

    So hard to choose as a dipoholic! Probably a warm cheesy artichoke dip if I had to pick just one!

  • Sydney

    Peanut butter will honestly always be #1 but I made a sun-dried tomato hummus last week that was pretty good. This cilantro hummus might take it’s place though!

  • Peggy E

    So many to choose from! Sun-dried tomato and garlic!!

  • lorrie d

    Guacamole and salsa!

  • Michelle

    I would love to say that my favorite dip is something crazy and exotic, but I have to be unexciting and go with guacamole!

  • Chelsy

    I am the queen of dips! I must have something to dip any of my meals in at all times…it just makes my meals more exciting. That being said, I love me some tzatsiki and roasted red bell pepper hummus. I’m also a big fan of homemade nut butters…especially pecan as of lately. 🙂

  • sarah

    it’s always guac o’clock.

  • Sarah

    Homemade hummus with veggies, oh and peanut butter…is that a dip? 🙂

  • Lisa @ Lisa Living Well

    Guacamole is my favorite!

  • Andrea

    Spinach artichoke dip: fresh out of the oven, all bubbly and cheesy…

  • Amy S.


  • Candice

    I gotta go with the Lipton Sour Cream & Onion dip. I love it with the ridge plain chips.

  • maura

    (feta cheese + sun dried tomatoes + olive oil) pita chips = mmmmm

  • Andrea E.

    I love all dips! maybe I am a dip?! right now creamy ricotta with fresh basil, lemon, and salt and pepper – so good on everything! Thanks for the FUN give – I have wanted one for 15 years!

  • Liz

    Oh, this is tough! For everyday I’d have to say humus, but my all time fav is guacamole. Favorite unconventional dip would probably be my fava bean/red pepper pesto dip, though perhaps it’s less a dip (the beans are left whole) and more of a….great bruschetta topping?

  • Talia

    extra-garlicky hummus!

  • Christina

    I have a weakness for onion dip and wavy potato chips! 🙂 But if I had a Vitamix, I would definitely be making this hummus right now 😉

  • Elaina

    Salsa is hands down my favorite on everything. Ranch chip dip falls into a close second but I try not to have it much ( ;

  • allie

    my favorite dip is dip. i don’t dipcriminate.

  • Julia

    Favorite dip: Pico de Gallo. Especially when heirlooms are in season, lots of like and salt.

  • Shikha @ Shikha la mode

    Wow, I LOVED using the Vitamix back in my restaurant days, and was so sad to find that they’re so expensive! My favorite dip isn’t really a straightforward “dip,” per say. It’s creme anglaise, made on the stove, finished in a Vitamix, and served in a bowl to dip cookies, pretzels, and other goodies in!

  • Guenevera

    Spinach and artichoke dip. I try it at new places whenever possible, but it has never topped the stuff I had at a random party once and didn’t get the recipe. Tragedy!

  • Kee

    hummus! any and all kinds. I love adding in different spices or herbs. I especially like it extra lemony or with curry powder. will definitely be making this cilantro version- my husband LOVES anything with cilantro!!

  • cori

    Caramelized onion dip with yogurt! I can eat an entire pint of that stuff in a sitting.

  • Brittany B

    It’s a three-way tie between guacamole, salsa, and hummus!

  • Brittney Osborne

    Salsa(s)…. I can’t choose just one particular kind. I’m a sucker for playing around with different ingredients! Corn, black beans, tomatoes, tomatillos, black eyed peas (oh yes) this list goes on!

  • Nancy Parker

    That’s an amazing giveaway!! I love love artichoke dip.

  • Katelyn

    You can never go wrong with guac! I like adding fresh tomatoes and feta!

  • Chris Y

    Guacamole. Love that stuff!

  • Emily

    Just being real… bean dip is the bomb. I could eat bean dip on the reg, not get sick of it. LOVE THAT BEAN DIP. Have I said bean dip enough times???

  • Mira C

    This isn’t a dip, per say, but I have been eating soooo much of that cilantro oil with bread ever since you posted your curry squash soup recipe. It makes any meal feel fancier, and dipping toast into that bad boy is one of my favorite pastimes. Yum!

  • Ashley

    Favorite dip: guacamole with lots of cilantro!

  • laci

    baba ghanoush. can’t get enough of it.

  • Jillian Rose

    Hummus all the way. When I make it, mines all lumpy. I’d make a damn fine hummus with a new Vitamix 🙂

  • Denise

    AAAAmazing giveaway! I can never say no to Guacamole.

  • Valeria Mykyta

    My favorite dip is the leftover sauce of any drop-dead-delicious dish that I’d be willing to use my finger as a chip just to pick up every little bit of. Example: shrimp in Yemenite curry sauce at Bar Bolonat, NYC.

  • Kenna

    Chips and dip are one of my favorite things! Chili and cheese dip is my all time favorite, but I wouldn’t mind making some fresh hummus. 🙂

  • tarabrookecarter

    Guacamole! I like it on the spicy side with a margarita.

    Trader Joe’s Caramelized Onion Dip is awesome and addictive. The crack dip from White on Rice is also amazing.

    Hummus is my favorite dip! I put cilantro in mine, but this cilantro oil business seems like it would take it (and so many other things) to a whole new level!

  • Sarah

    Oh, that cilantro oil! My favorite dip is guacamole and this give away rocks.

  • Karen

    Going to have to say queso – it is a Tex Mex staple. Definitely love hummus too, though with less food guilt.

  • Sarah H.P.

    My favorite dip is avocado hummus!

    My husband makes an incredible white bean and garlic dip. It started when we received garlic scapes in our CSA, and found a delicious recipe online. Now we simply use regular garlic so we can eat it all year!

  • margaret

    Salmon cream cheese dip! Made with vegan cream cheese…because for some reason that makes it extra delicious.

  • Stephanie K

    I really love spinach artichoke dip. Maybe it’s because I don’t get to eat it unless it for some kind of get together that involves snacks. I always look forward to it.

  • Karina

    There is a hummus I get at my local farmers market that I love, Black bean chipotle hummus. Amazing!

  • I am Pam

    My favorite dip is a bit embarrassing because its so terrible for you but come Superbowl Sunday my chair is right next to the Buffalo Chicken Dip!

    Super simple – equal parts mayonnaise and sour cream (or greek yogurt!), loads of dill, some paprika, garlic powder, salt, and whatever other spices you have on hand! It’s great with veggies!

    My current favorite is Edamame Hummus with a nice splash of lemon. Yuummy!

  • Emma

    Guacamole is my jam!

  • michele

    I love hummus! We make ours almost the same as you do….except we add

    Seven layer dip!!!

  • j

    guacamole is the best!! it’s hard to go wrong with avocados.

  • Laura M.

    I love guacamole! I put cilantro, fresh garlic, salt, black pepper, crushed red pepper flakes and LOTS of lime juice in it! I’ve even tried it guacamole with pomegranate seeds– delish! Such a versatile dip.

    Spinach Artichoke – can’t go wrong.

    Greek dip! Made with homemade hummus

  • Kerry

    Cheesecake dip!

  • Melissa

    I love a good old-fashioned hummus!!

  • Waad Radhi

    Guacamole and hummus

  • allison

    if i have to choose an absolute favorite, it would have to be roasted garlic hummus! (guacamole, baba ganoush, or spinach artichoke dip are close seconds. oooh, and cashew butter. so many options!)

    I am a guacamole fiend. I will eat pretty much any variety!

  • Traci Scott

    Cheesy Roasted Red Pepper Dip! Nom nom nom!

  • Stephanie L.

    guacamole and hummus!

    If I’m feeling like a healthy kick then I reach for the roasted red pepper hummus with veggies, but if I’m throwing my diet and caution to the wind then give me a hot artichoke dip and French bread!

  • Miranda

    Hard to decide but I do love hummus and spinach artichoke dip!

  • Jay


  • Nola Logan

    Blue cheese aoli! Cream cheese, mayo, blue cheese. Spread that all up on a brioche bun with some hamburger and you’ve got yourself a damn good slider:)

  • Amber Goodenough

    Never met a cheese dip I didn’t like. But when I’m trying to be good, I tend to cram large spoonfuls of guacamole in my mouth hole. Great giveaway. 🙂

  • Lisa

    So hard to pick one! Guacamole is at the top.

  • Carrie

    Favorite dip is spinach & artichoke!

  • Colleen


  • Heather B

    Cheese should go into every dip. No doubt!

  • Nicole B.

    A week ago I would have said hummus, but I was just at a business meeting in Atlanta where they served edamame spread/dip and OMG I can’t even think about anything else now. To die for, big time.

  • michelle

    french onion dip if I’m being bad. guacamole if I’m being only slightly bad!

  • Jessica

    Guacamole of course! With sriracha on top

  • Caitlin

    My favorite dip is definitely hummus! Plain ol’ hummus is the name of my game.

  • Brenda

    My official answer is guacamole…but my secret favorite is onion dip…the kind made with soup mix, not even the homemade version!!

    Hmm… That’s a tough one. I would have to say homemade garlic aioli.

  • Anne

    I’d have to say guacamole!

  • Shanna

    I have a major weakness for guacamole.

  • Claudia

    Favorite Dip: Trader Joe’s Blue Cheese and Roasted Pecan Dip! Mmmmmmm 🙂

    A good spinach and artichoke dip any day. PS: I’ve been wanting a Vitamix forever.

  • Sasha

    Hummus!!! I could live on the stuff 🙂

  • Ellie

    My favorite dip has to be edamame hummus!

  • Ashley

    Sweet hummus with garbanzo beans and chocolate chips! The perfect healthy treat that truly curbs my sweet tooth

  • Ashley S

    My mom’s motto, seriously, is “It’s all about the sauce” so we take our sauce/dips seriously. Um, that being said, I will go with guac!

  • Darcilyn

    I’m originally from Utah and still am obsessed with Fry Sauce.

  • Emily Fannin

    Dill ray dip! Put that stuff on a flip flip and I’d eat it.

  • Alese

    My favorite dip is guacamole with a good dose of Cholula. Homemade tzatziki is a close second though!

  • Rachel

    Avocado Verde Dip! Avocados, tomatillos, onion, garlic, jalapeno, lime, cilantro and salt dumped in a blender until tasty. Great for parties, sandwiches, eggs and it will keep for week (if people don’t eat it all at your fab party first).

  • Amanda D

    Ooh gotta love fresh made hummus, although I would say my favorite dip is homemade guacamole, yum!

  • Jenny M

    I love basil pesto hummus for veggies and crackers; for fruit, I love a honey greek yogurt. Mmmm…

  • Angela

    Lately I’ve gotten into greek yogurt w/ dill, garlic and onion powder…like a healthier ranch. For fruit I love this dip I’ve made for years: cream cheese, brown sugar and vanilla. that stuff is amazing.

  • Lo

    Definitely homemade black bean dip or guac. Or when I’m feeling lazy: hummus with a sh*t ton of sriracha/cholula mixed in. Thank you for the giveaway!

  • Melissa

    The crappy sour cream ranch dips
    From the store!! But I try to keep myself in line 🙂

  • Amanda

    My favorite dip is the hummus at the mediterranean place down the street from me. Something about it is so much better than the hummus I’ve had most other places.

  • Pam Ellis

    My favorite dip is black bean dip with olive hummus and spinach coming in a close second.

    Definitely guacamole. And I think this cilantro oil could be a nice addition! Thanks for the giveaway!

    Oh Dear, wish this Vitamix contest was also open to us Northerners;( But have to tell you, the cilantro oil…is genius!!
    Food Swoon

  • Annaliese

    It is a toss-up between hot artichoke dip, guac, and hummus!

  • Karen

    I make hummus with cannelini beans, tahini, roasted garlic, & whatever spice I’m in the mood for.

    Caramelized onion dip. I got a recipe from a B&B in Napa…it is ridiculous.

  • Rachel Tilly

    Mediterranean hummus!! Yummmmm!

  • Jodi


  • ElizabethRC

    When I’m feeling good, hummus. When I’m feeling wicked, chile con queso!

  • hellywelly

    Guacamole, until the end of time. However, I have been enjoying trader joe’s edamame hummus lately. haven’t tried making it myself yet. I’ve got to make this cilantro oil though-I am a sucka for cilantro!

  • Nikki

    Guacamole all the way!!!!

  • edlyn

    Favourite dip: Spicy as heck salsa with tons of cilantro.

  • tara davis

    my favorite dip is homemade guacamole! and also joy the baker’s whipped ricotta w/ lemon & olive oil, it’s so good.

  • Marilyn

    my favorite dip is either homemade hummus or guacamole! yumm

  • Clare McBride

    It’s an even tie between guacamole and queso, although Trader Joe’s has this cilantro/jalapeno dip that is the BOMB.

  • Jenny (VintageSugarcube)

    Favorite dip= warm artichoke green chili

    PS. So digg’n the hummus and cilantro oil.

  • Victoria

    My favorite dip is guacamole!

  • Charis

    Tzatziki is one of my favorite dips. With lamb kebabs and rice. Yummy.

  • Rebecca

    Does salsa count as dip? If so, then salsa – it’s one of my biggest weaknesses. If not, then guacamole. (Or what about both?!)

  • Taanya

    It’s a toss-up between guac and queso. So I tend to eat them both at the same time!!

  • Lisa Cartwright

    My favorite dip is guacamole.

  • Katerina

    I’m such a sucker for spicy hummus – yum!

  • Micha

    Let’s just say I love a good dip, but if one must choose, I am a sucker for the spinach artichoke dip.

  • Vanessa

    You’re telling me I have to pick? I love guacamole. But I always go for the Spinach & Kale Greek Yogurt Dip at Trader Joe’s. That stuff is freakishly good.

  • Sara M

    I love so many dips it’s hard to choose but I’d probably pick hummus with fresh, warm pita bread.

  • BA

    Homemade hummus is amazing, but I think my favorite dip is salsa verde. I’m learning how to make it myself and it gets better each time!

  • Jessica (bakecetera)

    HUMMMMMUS! i make it bi to tri-weekly and can’t get enough of it. i like to add in lots of cumin (seeds and ground) and thyme!

  • Erika

    What a cool giveaway! My fave is guacamole with meyer lemon and roasted garlic!

  • Jenny


  • Kimberly

    I love all kinds of dip, but I think my favorite is old school Knorr spinach dip scooped up with sourdough bread chunks and/or Triscuits. God, I’m so hungry now.

  • Tracy

    Seven-Layer Dip ! Because why choose just ONE, when you could have SEVEN?

  • Jennifer P

    I love squash and zuchninni hummus. Is a great way to use these veggies in the peak of summer. You grill the zuchinni and then blend with some oil, and any nut of choice (i like almonds). Supper yummy….!!

  • hanna s.

    Favorite dip… guac, hummus, or any of those artichoke-cheese varieties! My mom has been asking me to get her a Vitamix for her birthday for like, 3 years now… this is the perfect opportunity, no?

  • Evelyn

    My favorite dip at this moment is: Baklazhannaia Ikra (Poor Man’s Caviar). I’m a freak baby’s mama for any dip with eggplant. Of course, guacamole, baked crab dip and anything pimento cheese win honorable mentions.

  • Annalisa

    Pesto!!! On everything!

  • Christina Karl

    I added cilantro and lime to sour cream for tacos once and it made an absolutely phenomenal dip!

  • Carolyn

    Iranian roasted eggplant dip! Best thing on this earth.

  • Christine

    My fav dip is called Mean Green…think smooth guacamole with a kick (Trappy’s Peppers are the secret ingredient).. I’m closing on a new home in May and would be so happy to have the Vitamix in my kitchen!!!!

  • Melinda

    I love guacamole almost too much! 🙂

  • Lauren P.

    Favorite dip is Cilantro Chimichurri Hummis (I think Tribe makes it). Recently I can’t find it anywhere. Hopefully this recipe helps me get my fix.

  • Colleen

    how can i choose?
    I think anything that includes beans and garlic…Maybe lentil curry deliciousness? Or Fruit! Strawberries and sweet mint.. a few ice cubes and wow!

  • Audrey

    Tough question… Guacamole gets the slight edge over edamame hummus, but I truly love both!

  • Tim

    Hands down Baba Ganoush made from fresh off the coals roasted eggplants!

  • Allison

    My favorite is totally queso. Too bad cheese and chips aren’t a food group by themselves. But I’ve really been enjoying Trader Joe’s cilantro jalapeno hummus lately. I can’t wait to try making it myself with your recipe!

  • TheBBRcast

    Great post! Beautiful pictures! : )

  • Amy U

    My go to dip is hummus for veggies and guacamole for chips!

  • Carolyn

    I can’t get enough of guacamole!

  • Sheila Hawkey

    It’s a toss up between guacamole and hummus, but if I could only pick one for a desert island it would be hummus 🙂

  • sarah r

    this is probably cheating, but my favorite “dip” is salsa… 🙂

  • Seren

    I love babaganoush made with super smoky charred eggplant, lots of lemon juice and raw garlic.

  • Rhonda

    My favorite dip is the chicken dip made with Frank’s hot sauce — it’s positively addictive! I make a lighter version with sweet potatoes and greek yogurt. It’s super yummy and you can eat the whole bowl for dinner 🙂

  • Geraldine

    Guacamole – I love avocados!!!Yum!!

  • kimj

    Favorite Dip….onion sour cream with Lay’s wave chips??… I KNOW!
    but I can’t lie.


  • Christine

    My favorite dip is guacamole! Avocados are the best. I make your sweet potato fries with avocado dip regularly, including for a dinner party last week. I’d love to win the Vitamix – and Tuesday is my birthday! Have a good day, Tracy!

  • Megan

    Ranch dressing!

  • Nicole

    I don’t know if I can pick only one….guacamole or olive hummus are the tops!

  • Megan

    My favorite dip is hummus with kalamata olives. Or almond butter, for bananas and apples. Don’t make me decide!

  • Misha


  • Michelle

    My grandmas chip dip! Who knew sour cream and french onion soup mix would be so good!

  • Ben A.

    White bean dip, with parmesan, lemon, and garlic. Now I make it by hand, but it would be even better blended.

  • Lindsey Nicole

    I’m a sucker for baked spinach artichoke dip. Well, that and a really good ranch dip for chips and veggies.

  • Liz

    GUACAMOLE! Hands down my favorite dip. Quite possibly my favorite food.

  • Amy

    Hi Tracy! Thank you for this giveaway! My favorite dip is probably the aioli that I used to get from a food truck in Oxford called Chez Hassan. I’ve been trying to recreate it ever since–something I’m sure a Vitamix would achieve!

  • erica

    dip all the things!!! if its dip i like it 😉 i especially like whipped feta!

  • Sarah

    I love hummus and guacamole!

  • Erin

    Hummus is a my go to dip. But if I have avocados and corn around, then that turns into salsa with cilantro, tomatoes and garlic!

  • Kathryn

    guac! (to echo many others). also-cheesy buffalo chicken. mmm.

  • monica

    Gosh, that’s such a hard one! I’m tempted to say a chocolate milkshake, because I LOVE dipping french fries in one, but that seems like cheating! So instead I’m gonna go with hummus with giardiniera mixed in!

  • Ashley L

    Black bean dip! Preferably eaten with lime tortilla chips

  • Marisa S

    I love hummus and guacamole – could eat both for days.

  • Molly

    Aioli with french fries. Oh man.

  • Melanie

    Though I’d usually say spinach & artichoke dip, with the approach of summer (!!!), guacamole is definitely my favorite dip. I’m so glad you posted this recipe; I’ve been wanting to make a homemade version of Trader Joe’s cilantro jalapeño hummus, and now I can!!

  • Erin

    Buffalo chicken wing dip.

  • Elizabeth

    Guacamole is probably my favorite dip, though it may be tied with edamame hummus. Yum!

  • Mallory

    Love Vitamix – actually live in the neighboring city in Ohio where they are made! Favorite dip…well, let’s see – does peanut butter count? I sure hope so!

  • Jackie

    For an everyday dip, I love a garlicky hummus, but for special occasions I’m all over the spinach artichoke dip.

  • Matthew

    It is a tough toss-up! Both of these are gone as soon as I set them on the table:

    Whipped Feta Dip from What’s Gabby Cooking:

    Michael Chiarello’s Salsa di Parmigiano:

    Thanks for the contest and all you teach us!

  • Nicole

    Buffalo sauce flavored hummus!
