Game Day Dips!

Game Day Dips!

Here at the farm, we love a good dip.

So many of our seasonings make the perfect 1-ingredient add-in to sour cream or cream cheese; they're ready made spice mixes, after all! Here are three of my favorite easy dips I'll be making for game day (and for a quick snack, for friends, parties, and sneaky midnight noshes...)

Bacon & Hot Pop Game Day Dip (can be made vegan!)
Pairs well with: potato chips, all veggies, or as a sandwich spread


This was the dip that was GONE by the end of our dip photoshoot! Smoky from the bacon, rich from the sour cream and cream cheese, and unmistakably cheesy from the addition of both our Popcorn Blend & Hot Popcorn Blend (the magic of nutritional yeast and spices makes it taste sooo nutty and cheesy!). This recipe can also make an excellent cheese-less cheesy dip, with the substitution of nut sour cream and nut cream cheese in the place of the dairy.


  • 1/4 cup whipped cream cheese (regular works great too, if you want a thick dip!)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream 
  • 2 T bacon bits, plus more for garnish
  • 1/2 shallot 
  • 1 clove minced garlic 
  • 1 T Hippy Gold Nutritional Yeast
  • 1 T San Juan Island Sea Salt Popcorn Blend
  • 1 T San Juan Island Sea Salt Hot Popcorn Blend
Adjust to taste. Want it spicier? More Hot Pop! Want it more mild? Add more Hippy Gold! The additional of the Hippy Gold and Popcorn blends is what makes it so cheesy and thick, so feel free to add as much as your taste buds can handle!

Another one of my favorite easy snacks or charcuterie additions is almost any of our spice blends paired with sour cream or cream cheese. There are almost endless combos to try-- here's two super quick, minimal ingredient dips you can whip up in no time. 
Smoked Barbeque Dip 
Pairs well with: ruffle potato chips, sweet potato chips or fries, cauliflower and other veggies 
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 T diced red onion
  • 1 clove of garlic 
  • 1 T San Juan Island Sea Salt Barbeque blend 
  • Bacon bits for garnish or taste
  • Green onion for garnish
  • San Juan Island Sea Salt Madrona Smoked Pepper for garnish
Mix well, and garnish with bacon bits and green onions. Adjust to taste.

Tangy Pickle Dip

Pairs well with: carrot sticks, french fries, chicken wings, potato chips, or as a bagel spread
  • 1/4 sour cream
  • 1 1/2 T San Juan Island Sea Salt Dill Pickle Salt 
We garnished our dip with Hosa Dust, a lovely Fermented Chile Rub (with our salt in it!) from our friends at Hosa!
Which one are you most excited to whip out at your next party? There's no limit; our Spicy Thai, Kimchi, and Friday Harbor Seafood blends make excellent dips, too! Experimenting is the name of our game, and we'd love to hear what you guys come up with. Get ready to change up your plain potato chips with your buddies from San Juan Island Sea Salt!
