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!


Are you ready to put a little sis-boom-bah into your Saturday nights? If so, reach for those sparklers and party dips. It’s time to make unforgettable platters filled with foods that will help keep everyone happily snacking under the fireworks’ red glare. You can make the platters as big or as small as you like. But we’d suggest going big because when our party dips and other gourmet products are involved, there are very little leftovers to spare.

Fireworks Fish Platter

Everyone’s heard of firecracker shrimp and salmon but you may have some people at the party who don’t like the heat. So, we’re suggesting that you prepare the fish and party dips separately. With that said, firecracker shrimp and salmon fans will undoubtedly love our Beat the Heat Habenero Dip because it’s just an explosion of fiery flavors. The same party dip also tastes amazing with fried clam strips, catfish nuggets and lobster rolls. But don’t limit the fish lovers to just one selection. Try adding our King of the Sea Dip, gimbap and baked pita chips to the platter too. And for those that have never had gimbap before, it’s nothing more than a seaweed wrapped assortment of rice stuffed with various fillings.

Grilled Fruit Platter

Grilled fruit platters are always winning rave reviews, especially if they’re served alongside of a Danish Blue Cheese Dip. Blue cheese dips are so creamy that they really balance well with the sweetness and acidity of many summer fruits. A few of the ones we’d suggest adding to the platter are pears, peaches, figs, oranges, apples, mangoes and pineapple. Grill them up right before you are ready to pull the platter together and serve the party dip cold. It will add even more contrast to the snack.

Grilled and Pickled Veggies

Grilled and pickled veggies would certainly put some sis-boom-bah into a Saturday night celebration too. They tend to taste wonderful with any number of party dips including Cool As A Cucumber and Western Ranch. To find your favorites and get the weekend fireworks started, please contact us today.
