“Summer summer summertime
Time to sit back and unwind…”

Summertime is already here in Texas.  It’s get outside, call the friends over, pop-a-top, crank up the music, fire up the grill time! You can’t have that quality summertime experience without great food, though.  In fact, during the summer, most get togethers are centered around meals! Whether it’s a birthday celebration, reunion BBQ with family, or just an average Sunday evening – it’s the food that brings you all together. That’s why I absolutely love Heluva Good!®dips – because I can use them for more than just chips!

Dips are great for dunking your chips into, to get that added bit of flavor.  But for me, Heluva Good!® dips are awesome for so many other reasons.  I want more than just flavor.  I want a versatile, creamy condiment that can be used to really jazz up any dish on the table.

Think outside the box, and get creative with your BBQ meal plan, and stock up on Heluva Good!® dips. They are seven different flavor choices, including my favorites: French Onion Dip, Buttermilk Ranch Dip, and Jalapeño Cheddar Dip. Each of these amazing condiments will put the “mmmmm!” back into your BBQ meals!

So, how can you use Heluva Good!® dips, beyond dunking chips?  Don’t worry, I have you covered.  I recommend picking up a few flavors to offer your guests and family different options. Let’s explore some yummy ideas!

A classic, quick and easy appetizer at any outdoor meal is a veggie tray.  The bright colors of the vegetables offer a nice aesthetic to any table. But the star of the show isn’t the red tomatoes, or the green celery. It’s the Heluva Good!® dip, of course!  It’s super thick and creamy, and the flavor enhances the best of the vegetables.

Here in Texas, it’s not a BBQ without at least 4 side dishes.  We love our creamy salads – pasta salad, potato salad and coleslaw.  Punch up the flavor and texture of your homemade salads by replacing the mayonnaise and mustard with Heluva Good!® dips. This simple makeover actually makes a huge difference.  Imagine: French Onion in your coleslaw, Buttermilk Ranch flavoring your pasta salad, and Jalapeño Cheddar dressing your potato salad.

Finally, it’s not a true BBQ without cheeseburgers and hot dogs!  Instead of that boring ketchup and mustard, spread the Heluva Good!® dip.  My favorite condiment combination on hot dogs is the Heluva Good!® French Onion Dip, and orange peppers diced up.  Mmmmmm!  Experiment with the different flavor options to find your perfect match for burgers and dogs!

With Heluva Good!® dips, your outdoor, summertime BBQ season really comes alive. There are so many amazing flavor choices, you’ll definitely discover other ways to use these yummy dips, with every meal. From appetizers and side dishes to the main event of the BBQ – Heluva Good!® is the only condiment you need!

    Don’t think I have tried this dip before but what a tasty way to eat your burger or hotdog. yummy!!

  7. It actually is good dip I see it now everywhere at the groccery store. The brand has grown a lot. Interesting take on how I used to just use it for chips and carrots which are timeless classics but always love trying new way of mixing and matching food items.
