I have been a fan of blue cheese forever. There is something about the tanginess that I love. Sometimes I even say it is the best cheese.

Many people don’t like cheese because they think it is smelly but I think that is what makes it so unique. If that is how you feel about blue cheese, this easy dip is the recipe for you.

All of the flavors of my blue cheese dip recipe are really balanced and make this the perfect appetizer for any parties you host or attend.  Never arrive at a party empty-handed!

Next, you need to bring a fun dip. I created this delicious blue cheese dip recipe after eating a few bags of sweet potato flavored chips; I wanted to compliment the chip flavors instead of accentuate them.

You can prepare this blue cheese dip the day before and chill it overnight or a few hours before your gathering. I suggest chilling it for at least 2 hours so that the flavors have a chance to come together.

Depending on how much you love blue cheese, feel free to add or decrease the amount. We are big blue cheese fans so I will often sprinkle some additional blue cheese crumbles on top.

We also have used this creamy blue cheese dip for wings. It’s a little chunky but sticks to wings nicely. If you want a blue cheese dip that is more creamy, add another 1/2 cup of sour cream.

What kind of blue cheese should I use?

There are many different kinds of blue cheese. Some of my favorites include Roquefort, Gorgonzola, and Stilton.

For this recipe I recommend using a semi-soft, crumbly blue cheese like the ones above or Danish blue cheese. You can find any of them in the cheese section of your grocery store.

What should I serve with blue cheese dip?

I am a big fan of serving this easy dip with tortilla chips – especially specialty chips made from sweet potatoes. Fresh veggies like carrots, celery, and cucumber is another option.

You can also use this dip as a substitute for blue cheese dressing when serving chicken weeks. It is especially great with chicken wings tossed in buffalo sauce.

We tried this for Christmas. Served it with raw veggies, pretzel chips, and potato chips. It is in one word: addictive!!! My husband had leftover buffalo chicken pizza and used this dip to dip it in and he said it was perfect. If you have a blue cheese lovers in your life, make this for them. It's awesome!
