how to make dips?

Dips are used to add flavor or texture to foods, such as pita bread, dumplings, crackers, cut up raw vegetables, seafood, cubed pieces of meat and cheese, potato chips, tortilla chips etc. Unlike other sauces, instead of applying sauce, the food is typically put, dipped, or added into the dipping sauce(hence the name).

Dips are commonly used for finger foods, appetizers, and other easily held foods. Thick dips basically are made from sour cream, yogurt, mayonnaise, soft cheese or beans.

Well then, here’s a walk through the older and newer ways of adding both, taste and health to our daily food. Learn to make lovely and tasty dips and wet grind in minutes with the use of Nutri-blend.
