4 Ingredient Sour Cream Chive Dip - Polk County Moms


Football season is here, and that means Game Day eats. Sundays are busy for a lot of families, so simple recipes are key.  This 4-Ingredient Sour Cream Chive Dip from Joanna Keohane of The Family Food Kitchen is not only quick and easy,  the flavor gets better with time, so can (and should) be made at least one hour ahead of time.

“The fresh chives really take the flavor of this dip over the top! So much better than store-bought – none of the artificial nasties either,” says Joanna, a recipe creator and mom of three who previously worked in test kitchens at Good Housekeeping, Bon Appetit and Epicurious. She adds: “If you want to make this dip healthier it’s fine to sub out some of the sour cream for full-fat or low-fat plain yogurt too.”
