    Daisyjae, the clam dip is amazing. As a child, my mom would have to tell me to leave some for everyone else. I'd just hover around the bowl and eat and eat. It is delicious.

    R9139, if you're making the Mexican Cheese Dip for more than just you, make more than one recipe. I served it one time to my family and friends (12 of us) and, since the table was filled to the max with lots of great snack foods, I thought 2 recipes were enough. No. I needed FOUR. They really liked it!

    I like the first couple, and as I have guests this weekend have bookmarked the page so I can make them, probably on Friday. I'm sure they will love them.

    Great collection! I never thought about using regular potato chips with guacamole, but wow! That looks delicious! Also, the cheese dip sounds like it has a bit of a kick to it. Mmmm. Thanks!
