Chipped beef dip is one of my all time favorite things to make. This chipped beef dip was my grandpa’s specialty. No matter what time of the year or what kind of occasion it was, this dip was always on the table. No one else was allowed to make it because it was his thing.
It’s been almost 6 years since he passed away and every time I make this dip, it brings back a ton of memories and it makes me so happy. Who knew a simple dip recipe could do that? Actually, there are two recipes I cherish that bring back great memories, this recipe for chipped beef dip and my grandma’s specialty: Cheery Cheese Torte. That is a must try also if you’re in the market for something sweet.
This chipped beef dip recipe is one of the easiest things I know how to make, and it is darn tasty. The salty bits of beef running through make it ultra-addicting and filling. The red onions add a crisp bite and bring out the flavor of the beef. Its almost like a beef sandwich. Plus, you can’t go wrong with anything made with cream cheese. It’s so luscious.
You can eat this dip with pretty much anything. My hubby and I love it with pretzels. My grandpa had to have club crackers, and nothing else. My grandma ate hers extra soft, with Ritz. It also tastes good spread on toast. This really is the most versatile dip and tastes great, even right off the spoon!
How to make this dip
Beef: I always use regular Buddig beef. My grandpa sometimes substituted corned beef, which is also dynamite.
Cream Cheese: Regular cream cheese works best for this recipe. I feel like the reduced fat kind makes the dip too soft. If you want the dip on the softer side, then the reduced fat kind would work great. We eat ours mostly with pretzels, so a thicker dip works well.
Crackers/Pretzels: Both crackers and pretzels work well for this dip. If I eat this dip with crackers, I go for the sturdier ones, like wheat thins or pita crackers. You can also serve this dip with chunks of bread!
