Get out the chip 'n dip and pour out some crackers for these 3 tasty and easy party dips

Chips and dip are as essential to parties as extra ice and a delicious house cocktail. And because many dips can be made in as few as 10 minutes, making them from scratch is a low-investment way to take a gathering from great to unforgettable. 

Here are three recipes that do just that. 

Vidalia Onion Dip 
A potato chip's best friend, this classic onion dip is a guaranteed party game-changer. The key to this dip's rich flavor is the caramelized onions — be sure to take your time with them so their sweetness will carry through the entire dish.
