Appalachian Favorites- Mom’s Chip Dip

I know, there are so many dips for chips available now, with packaged mixes, ready to eat dips and so on, but this is fantastic. I still prefer this dip over any that I eat now, and I can honestly say I am an expert at chips and dip. I asked my mom where she got this recipe and she said she just came up with it one day. I haven’t looked in depth for a similar recipe, but here is the one we devoured when we were young. It’s best with kettle chips or rippled chips.

Cream cheese chip dip

1 8 oz. block of cream cheese

1/4 cup chopped onion (adjust this to taste)

1/4 cup diced dill pickles (again, adjust to taste. My mother used regular hamburger dill slices, but you can use any you prefer)

1/2 cup mayonnaise

salt and pepper to taste

Mix together ingredients. Don’t omit the salt and pepper, it adds just that something. Chill for at least one half hour, serve with chips. Serves 4.
