Want to try a dip that tastes like your favorite sandwich? BLT is my all-time favorite combination for a sandwich. This dip has a “zip” to it, and is delicious with crudites, chips, or baguettes. 


I was bummed that I did not have a jalepeno in my fridge when I was mixing this up, so I reached for Chipotle Chili Pepper and it was just the right amount of spice. A great way to bring this recipe up a notch! Add fresh corn and tomatoes to make it complete! Or, if you love just plain ol’ guac, make my Best Bacon Guacamole Recipe!

Why we love this Chipotle BLT Dip

We love this dip, especially in the summertime, because it’s a great party appetizer. And most of us will have the ingredients on hand. It’s also so easy to make, and you can make it ahead and keep in the fridge until ready to serve.

Here’s also something I bet you’ve never tried: Tri Tip Crostini. We have leftover trip tip from dinner last night, and this is a classic summer bite in our kitchen (for appetizer or a light summer dinner).

Tips and substitutions:

  • A big plus is that it is quick and easy, you can make it a day ahead of time.
  • You can leave out the chipotle and replace with a chopped jalapeno.
  • If you don’t have lime, you can use a fresh lemon.
  • Serve it with Mexican food – big party hit!
  • Serve with sliced baguettes, brushed with butter and toasted.
  • Add to lettuce wraps.
  • Make a chopped salad and add a spoonful of this dip to the side.
  • Keep the dip refrigerated until you are setting food out for the party. Make sure and stir it before serving (avocados can get a little brown).
  • If it’s warm at your party, you may want to set the bowl in a bowl of ice to keep the dip cold since there is mayo in the recipe.

Easy summer entertaining

There are hot bacon dips and then cold BLT bacon dips! This one screams summer, made with fresh corn. So good! You may also want to try my Easy Corn Pico de Gallo Salad or Corn and Mango Dip.

Having an “I like it” approach to entertaining is important for me to enjoy entertaining. This goes for the recipes that I make and the style of entertaining.

Of course focusing on the people who are coming is more important than anything. It’s taken me a few years to get to this place, but after years of figuring out that happiness in entertaining is really about the people and the conversation, and so much less about the “fluff,” it’s given me confidence in my style and approach.

Yes, it’s good to have your ducks in a row when you entertain, to be organized and ready for company, but when you stress about all the tiny details being exact and perfect, it really takes away from what hospitality should be.

Chipotle BLT Dip with Fresh Corn

We loved the chipotle flavor so much, and then add in the fresh corn off the cob – crunchy and so much fresh flavor going on! Optional to leave the corn in a more chunky style (cut off the cob).
