Veggie Ranch Dip Recipe

It’s that time of year when the basketball season starts to really heat up! While I may not be a huge fan myself, my hubby loves to watch basketball and I love a good excuse to whip up some sports-themed snacks whether it’s just for the two of us or to entertain friends for a festive basketball-watching party.

New Cheez-It Snacks

At the top of the list for fun snacks is anything crispy and crunchy and Cheez-It totally fits that description. I was pretty excited to see that there are some brand new snacks from Cheez-It! Cheez-It Crunch’d is a super fun crunchy puff made with 100% real cheese. These are super light, fluffy and fun! Cheez-It Grooves combine the best of Cheez-It and a chip to make an awesome snack that I think is perfect for dipping!

Cheez-It at Walmart

To put that dipping ability to the test, I picked up the new Cheez-It varieties at Walmart and then created this delicious veggie ranch dip that compliments the cheesy goodness of Cheez-It.

Veggie Ranch Dip Process

Veggie Ranch Dip Recipe

To make serving our Cheez-It extra fun, I made this fun Basketball Backboard Printable. Just print out the set of four backboards, cut them out, and attach to the top of a plastic cup. Fill with your Cheez-It snacks and serve. For a larger gathering, you can write names on the backboards to avoiding snack cup confusion! That’s a slam dunk!

  16. Sounds like a wonderful dip that even the kids will love

  17. I grew up watching basketball and playing it, but my husband isn’t a fan. I’m trying to talk him into buying tickets to a Kings game just so our kids can go. My husband loves the grooves, but we’ve never had the other shape. I bet my kids would be big fans of it.

  18. I could probably eat an entire box of Cheeze-Its, especially when you pair it with that yummy dip. The backboards are a kick. I know the kids would love them.

  19. I’m a total sucker for dip. I could probably eat a whole box of crackers with it!

  27. I just tried these as a sample. They are pretty good.

  28. Cheeze Its are so addictive! I can eat the whole box if I am not careful and just mindless munching. I will have to try these next time I am grocery shopping. I havent tested them yet.

  29. I love the idea of making my own veggie dip! That has gotta taste so good with fresh veggies.
