There is never a bad time for Old Bay Dip, am I right?

We know that dips are great for tailgating, but they are also awesome when you’re binge-watching a show, for serving at parties and sometimes even lunch.

Don’t judge me. I like snacks.

Chip Dip is a classic appetizer (or snack really) that everyone loves. This one is packed with seasoning to create a savory dip you won’t be able to stop shoveling in your mouth.

Because this is a cold dip, you can make the recipe ahead of time and keep it ready in the fridge.

Chip dip is a convenient party food to set out as guests arrive or to bring out later to refresh the food table.

But it’s also great to grab whenever you’re feeling snacky. Like, all the time.

The Old Bay party dip recipe uses cream cheese as the base and is very easy to make. But you will get rave reviews! That’s my favorite type of recipe.

NOTE: This dip is intense as written. I love bold flavors but my husband does not. I’ll show you a modification to tone the quick chip dip down a bit below. This White Bean Dip is more mellow so keep this one in mind too.

Here’s what you need to make Old Bay Party Dip.

As mentioned above, this is full of in-your-face flavor from the Old Bay and chicken bouillon. To smooth it out, you can add in 1/2 a cup of sour cream and 1/4 cup of milk.

How to Make Old Bay Chip Dip

Make sure your cream cheese is softened before you begin. It will help to create a smooth and creamy potato chip dip.

1. Dissolve the bouillon

Heat 1/8 cup of water in a microwave-safe cup or small bowl for about 30 seconds. Add the bouillon cube and stir until completely dissolved.

The water just needs to be warm enough to help break up the cube, it doesn’t have to be boiling.

2. Add cream cheese

To a large bowl (I love a glass batter bowl) add the softened cream cheese.

3. Add flavorings

Add the rest of the ingredients: liquified bouillon cube, Old Bay seasoning, Worcestershire sauce and garlic clove.

If using, add the sour cream and milk.

4. Mix well

Use a hand mixer and beat until everything is well blended and smooth.

5. Chill it

Place the dip in an air-tight container and put it in the fridge, for at least an hour, until ready to serve.

Serve this (in my opinion) the best chip dip, with potato chips, veggies, or pretzels.

Top tips

  • The key to a smooth dip is to make sure the cream cheese is fully softened! Make sure to allow plenty of time before you want to make this recipe.
  • You can customize this dip by adding some fresh herbs. Basil would be nice. As would thyme.
  • Because potato chips have their own salt, don’t add any more to the dip until you’ve tasted the chips and dip together.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I store the dip?

Store the Old Bay dip in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.

Is there a way to soften the cream cheese in the microwave?

To soften cream cheese in the microwave, remove all wrapping and put it on a microwave-safe plate. Heat for 15 seconds. It should be soft enough to blend well. If any liquids separate onto the plate, make sure to scrape them into your mixing bowl also.
