Quick Sour Cream Dip Recipe


Many recipes for sour cream dip require you to make them hours ahead of time, or even overnight. This Quick Sour Cream Dip Recipe can be made, then eaten!

Quick Sour Cream Dip Recipe Ingredients:
1 16oz container of sour cream
1/8 cup chives
1 tsp parsley
1 tsp onion flakes
1/2 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper

In a mixing bowl, add in the chives, parsley, onion flakes, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Then put the sour cream on top of it and mix it all in thoroughly.

This is the type of recipe that everyone has different parts they want to emphasize. For example, I have chives that grow all by themselves every year in my garden. I don't think I could kill them off if I tried. So I have fresh chives to find a use for, and this is one of them. If you haven't tried chives in your windows, they are easy to grow and make a delightful addition to many food items.

For the garlic, some people might find this amount just right. When I'm making the dip for myself, I probably put in 2 tsp of garlic powder. I love the taste of garlic.

Yes if you have fresh onion and fresh garlic, certainly go for those instead! The recipe is bare-bones so you can do it any time with what is on your shelf anyway. If you have the fresh options, those will taste even better.

What is the nutrition in this? Really in terms of per serving, the only thing that is affecting you is the sour cream. For every 2 Tbsp of sour cream you get:

60 calories
6g fat
20mg cholesterol
10mg sodium
1g carb

So of course if you were to eat the entire container of sour cream in one sitting, that's 15 servings and it's not highly recommended (although really it's still only 15g of carbs). It's much more likely that you'd eat a smaller amount, and that you'd be using this dip to help encourage you to eat healthy veggies like carrots, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, and the like. So the incredible benefits of getting those veggies into you is easily balanced against the minor issue of having a few carbs make that be a pleasurable event.

Again the key here is to customize it to match your interests. If you adore marjoram, add some in. If you don't like onion, leave those out. It's easy to mix and match this to be your perfect dip!
