Chips and dip – crab dip and potato chips

Chips and dip are a food of chips or crisps served with dips. Chips used include potato chips, tortilla chips, corn chips, bean chips, vegetable chips, pita chips, plantain chips and others. Crackers are also sometimes used, as are crudités, which are whole or sliced raw vegetables. Various types of dips are used to accompany various types of chips.

Chips and dip gained significant popularity in the United States during the 1950s, in part due to a Lipton advertising campaign for their French onion dip recipe, sometimes referred to as “California dip”. Specialized trays and serving dishes designed to hold both chips and dip were created during this time. Chips and dip are frequently served during the Super Bowl American football game in the United States. National Chip and Dip Day occurs annually in the U.S. on March 23.

 

 

 

The popularity of chips and dip significantly increased in the United States during the 1950s, beginning circa 1954, due to changes in styles of entertaining in the suburbs and also due to a Lipton advertising campaign based upon using Lipton’s instant dehydrated onion soup mix to prepare dip. The advertising campaign occurred on television and in supermarket display advertising, and promoted mixing the soup mix with sour cream or cream cheese to create a dip, to be served with potato chips or crudités. This dip began to be called California Dip. The advertising campaign realized significant success, and new, similar dip products were quickly developed thereafter. During this time, unique platters designed for chips and dip service were created that allowed for the containment of several types of chips, and service variations were devised that included serving the dip in a bread bowl or hollowed-out fruit.

Chips and dip are a popular food during the annual Super Bowl game in the United States. Eighty-five percent of Americans eat potato chips.

Chips and salsa, typically served using tortilla or corn chips, is a common type of chips and dip dish that gained significant popularity in the United States in the late 1980s. Chips and guacamole, also typically served with corn-based chips is another type, as well as chips and bean dip. Seven-layer dip and tortilla chips is another corn-based chip combination, as is chile con queso, an appetizer or side dish of melted cheese and chili pepper typically served in Tex-Mex restaurants as a sauce for nachos.

 

 

Double-dipping involves taking a bite of a chip and then re-dipping it into a dip, which some people disapprove, while others are indifferent. Double-dipping transfers bacteria from a person’s mouth into a dip, which can then be transferred to other consumer’s mouths.

The behavior of double-dipping involves consuming chips and dip, taking a bite of the chip, and then re-dipping it into a dip. In March 2013, Tostitos, a U.S. brand of tortilla chips and dips, hired the Ketchum communications agency to perform a survey concerning double dipping that polled over 1,000 Americans. The survey found that 46% of male participants double-dip at a party, compared to 32% of females. 54% stated that they would not consume dip after seeing another person double-dip, and 22% stated that they did not care. 25% stated that they would verbally object to a person caught double-dipping.

A study performed by the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition at Clemson University found that three to six instances of double-dipping “would transfer about 10,000 bacteria from the eater’s mouth to the remaining dip,” which corresponds with “about 50-100 bacteria from one mouth to another, in every bite.” The study concluded with the recommendation that double-dipping should be curtailed, along with tips to prevent it from occurring.

A segment on MythBusters in 2009 tested how much bacteria is transferred during the process of double-dipping, finding that there is a transfer but that it “adds only a few more microbes”.

National Chip and Dip Day occurs in the United States annually on March 23. Tostitos-brand tortilla chips, a major U.S. brand, observed the day in 2015 by providing coupons for free dip for interested customers named “Chip”.

“Meatless Monday” Recipe of the Week – Chilaquiles

September 28, 2015 at 5:35 AM | Posted in CooksRecipes, Meatless Monday | 2 Comments
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

This week’s “Meatless Monday” Recipe of the Week is Chilaquiles. Made with fried eggs, avocado, jalapeño, and even a little beer! It’s from the PBS/Recipe website. http://www.pbs.org/food/recipes/

 

Chilaquiles

This Chilaquiles recipe is a Mexican dish featuring fried eggs, avocado, and tomato sauce.Cooksrecipes 2
Ingredients
1/2 jalapeño
1 (15-ounce) can of crushed tomatoes (I had fire-roasted in my pantry and it was amazing, but definitely not necessary)
1 shallot, minced
1 1/2 tablespoons of tomato paste
1/3 cup beer
Salt
Pepper
Tortilla chips
1/2 cup Monterey Jack cheese
3 large eggs
1 radish, thinly sliced, as garnish
1/2 avocado, as garnish
Handful of cilantro leaves, as garnish
1 ounce cotija cheese, crumbled
Directions
1 – Place the jalapeño on the grates of the gas range. Turn the flame to medium and char the jalapeño, rotating it every 30 seconds or so, until blackened. Transfer the chile to a cutting board and using a knife, scrape off most of the charred bits and discard. Dice up the jalapeño, removing the seeds and thick membrane.
2 – To a blender, add the diced jalapeño, can of tomatoes and pulse until smooth.
3 – In a medium skillet, heat a few tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Add the shallot and cook until softened, about 2 minutes. Pour in the blended up tomato puree, beer and a pinch of salt and pepper. Simmer, uncovered, stirring frequently, until reduced by nearly half, about 10 minutes.
4 – While the sauce is reducing, preheat your broiler. On a parchment-lined (you could also use foil), spread out the chips in a mostly even layer. When the sauce is ready, spoon it over the chips. Use it all up! Sprinkle the top with the cheese and transfer to the broiler, until melty, about 3 to 5 minutes. (Be sure to keep an eye on it because it melts quickly!)
5 – Meanwhile, fry up a few eggs. When the cheese has melted, top with the eggs. Garnish with the thinly sliced radishes, avocado, cilantro leaves and cotija cheese.
