Quick Dips To Celebrate Labor Day

Normally, I write about craft or karate when I blog. This week, I’d like to focus on entertaining, especially with Labor Day right around the corner : )

Here are two dips I make in no time and my friends and family LOVE THEM! So I thought I’d share them with you this week. Feel free to make them your own. I know once you do, you’ll go back to them time and time again. And don’t be surprised if your friends steal them from you too : )


What you need: Two cans of artichoke hearts, 1 cup of parmesan cheese, mayonnaise.

Drain artichoke hearts and run under cold water. Cut up the artichokes into fine pieces. Place them into a casserole dish. Add mayonnaise to moisten. Add all of the parmesan cheese. Add more mayo ( I use lite mayo) until you have a creamy, dip. I sprinkle a little more parmesan cheese on top, cover with plastic wrap and microwave for five minutes.  Be careful when removing dish from microwave, it will be pipping hot!  Serve with crackers or tostitos dippers. YUMMMM.


What you need: 1 can of Hormel turkey chili with no beans, 1 package of cream cheese, 1 regular size bag of shredded cheddar cheese. You can use the non fat cream cheese and the fat free shredded cheddar cheese. No one will no better : )

In a casserole dish, spread the cream cheese on the bottom. Spoon in the can of turkey chili, top with the entire bag of shredded cheddar cheese, cover the casserole with plastic wrap and microwave for three – five minutes depending on your microwave. Be careful when removing it —- it will be HOT!

I serve this dip with tostitos dippers and crackers. I swear my family licks this casserole dish clean each and every time : )

I wish everyone a healthy, happy, Labor Day — Eat, drink and be merry and we’ll reconvene in September : )

All my best,
