It’s National Chip & Dip Day!!! Yes!!! So, of course, just the facts, first, as brought to us by Foodimentary.com:
The potato chip has been around since 1853.
It takes 10,000 pounds of potatoes to make 3,500 pounds of potato chips.
The chips we use for dipping first became popular in the 50’s.
Really anything can be made into a dip: salsa, guacamole, cheese, hummus, even squash.
Chips and salsa are probably the most well-known chip & dip, and the go-to for many of us. Have you ever made our own salsa? I have, and it can be a lot of work when done traditionally, here is a recipe if you are wanting to give it a go. If you are wanting quick and good, here is a different recipe. And for all of you you Pico de Gallo fans, I have one for your too, click here.
Whatever your preference, today is the day to indulge a little, and enjoy!
