Versatile Dips: Transform Starters into Entrées

When you’re hosting a party, dips can be your best friend because they pair up so well with any number of accompaniments: pretzels, veggies, crackers, pitas, and chips of all kinds. These Vitamix dips are so versatile that leftovers can also serve as flavorful sauces or garnishes for your main dinner entrées for the following week.

With a little forethought, you can have your dip and eat it, too. Enjoy a few of our favorite dip recipes below, with our suggestions for how to turn them into simple weeknight entrées. Watch a video demonstration to master the technique.

Avocado Yogurt Sauce
Classic guacamole ingredients - garlic, lime, jalapeño, cilantro - are made cool and creamy with yogurt. Perfect the next day as a fajita sauce.

Pineapple Salsa
Pineapple adds tropical flair as a traditional tortilla chip dip, then shines its flavor on fish tacos.

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
When the party’s over, this hummus makes a fabulous spread for a sandwich or a pita wrap.

Tropical Avocado Salsa
