Some of the best memories people can make involve cooking with their kids and family. If you have a dad in your life who's a chef at heart, you know the special memories to be had cooking together.

With Father's Day approaching in June, you're sure to be looking for unique gift ideas for the dads in your life, and Deli Direct can help! We have some incredible dip mixes that can make the dishes your dad loves to prepare even tastier or inspire him to try something new.

In order to make your gift even more special, we have some fun, easy recipes for your dad to try. Check out these great Father's Day party dip ideas. When you choose which dip mixes your dad will love, you can include copies of these recipes, and others you think he'll enjoy, with his gift.

Spice Up Your Dad's Life!

Does your dad love spicy food? Our Beat the Heat Habanero Mix is our hottest dip yet! Add it to chili or taco meat as the seasoning, sprinkle it on steak, or mix it with ground beef to give burgers some extra heat.

Another great way to use this seasoning is to make it into a dip for raw vegetables, chips, bread, or crackers. For something a little less spicy choose our Jumpin' Hot Jalapeno Mix, which is one notch below Beat the Heat. Here's a tasty recipe to try:

Spicy Roasted Red Pepper Cream Cheese Dip

  • 1 jar roasted red peppers, drained
  • 1 package Beat the Heat Habanero Mix or Jumpin' Hot Jalapeno Mix
  • 1 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened

Mix all ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth.

Serve with an assortment of bread, crackers, raw veggies, or tortilla chips.

Note: Those who are sensitive to dairy products can make this dip with soft goat cheese.

Holy Guacamole!

Guacamole is a wonderful way to get some healthy fats into your diet. Our Gringo Guacamole Dip Mix makes some seriously tasty guacamole. It can be mixed up per the package directions, or you can try this delicious recipe:

Gringo Guacamole

2 ripe avocado, mashed

2 tsp lemon or lime juice

1 package Gringo Guacamole - A Spice Above Dip Mix

1 cup sour cream or Greek yogurt

1 medium tomato, chopped

Mash avocado. Add lemon or lime juice and mix. Stir in Gringo Guacamole seasoning, sour cream or Greek yogurt, and chopped tomato. Chill 1-2 hours and serve with tortilla chips, raw veggies, or as a topping for nachos or tacos. You can even use this amazing guacamole in a 7-layer Mexican dip!

Note: Those who are sensitive to dairy can make this guacamole with goat yogurt.

Stuffed Artichokes

If your dad loves artichoke spinach dip, he'll love our Stuffed Artichoke Dip. It's our #1 best seller! Just mix with 1 cup mayonnaise and 1 cup sour cream and chill. A great way to serve this dip is with warm Hawaiian bread or slices of a French Baguette.

Dessert, Dessert!

Who can forget dessert? Chocolate lovers will rave over this easy to make Chocolate Lover's Dream Pie. The directions on the package explain the simple filling that includes cream cheese and whipped topping. You and your dad can either buy a crust or make your own.

Making a pie crust for a recipe like this is a lot of fun, and kids will have a blast mashing up the graham crackers or whatever is used to make the crust. To mash up graham crackers, put them in a Ziploc bag and roll over them with a rolling pin or a jar of pasta sauce until they turn into crumbs.

If you'd like to add more chocolate to your pie, this recipe for an Oreo Cookie Pie Crust only contains 2 ingredients and goes together in a snap.

Other pie flavors your dad may enjoy making include Sea Salt Caramel Delight Pie, Sinfully Cin-a-Bun Pie, and White Chocolate Raspberry Swirl Pie, as well as many others. Each of these mixes can also be made into dips and served with fruit, cookies, graham crackers, or biscotti.

At Deli Direct, we have a large assortment of party dip ideas for your Father's Day gifts. All of our savory mixes are free of msg, preservatives, sugar, and gluten. We also carry many other items that any chef would love. Contact us today to find out how we can help you choose a great Father's Day gift!


A New Year's Eve party isn't complete without exciting food to munch on. Here are three ideas for tasty treats and party dips for your late-night shindig.

Vegetable Tray - A vegetable tray is a party classic. It is perfect for those watching their weight or who have allergies. Make the tray visually appealing by arranging the vegetables in a design or pattern. Another way to spice up your tray is with a dip. Forget your boring, normal dip and try our Hearty Cheddar Bacon Dip or our Gringo Guacamole Dip. You'll love the fun flavors and exciting combinations.

Brownie Bites - When it comes to a party, finger foods are the best. This is true even in deserts. Brownie bites are a great option. You get the brownie that everyone loves, but in a convenient finger food. They also go great with different desert dips. Brownies pair well with our White Chocolate Raspberry Dip and our Sea Salt Caramel Dip.

Graham Crackers - For those who like deserts that are a little less sweet, graham crackers are a perfect choice. They are delicious and crunchy, but also pair well with other items. The Sinfully Cin-a-Bun Dip gives the graham crackers a classic cinnamon twist, while the Heaven Sake Cheesecake Dip makes a lovely graham cracker treat.

Whether you are expecting a house full of people or a quiet night with a few friends, These foods are a great addition to any party.

Feel free to contact us with any questions you have.
