I am a big 'dip' person.....

One of my favorites is the 7layer/Mexican dip. Refried beans, sour cream mixed w/taco seasoning packet (I use McCormicks), then whatever toppings you like....guacamole, tomatoes, jalapenos, black olives, lettuce, etc...then I always top with shredded cheese and green onions. Serve with tortilla chips.

Another variation of that is to use old bay seasoning (1 tbs) with cream cheese (2 packages, softened), and mayo (2 tbs). Mix together, place in serving dish, and then add your favorite toppings. I did tomatoes, lettuce, cheese, and green onions. Serve with tortilla chips.

Shrimp cocktail is always a good standby. Serve with cocktail sauce.

hickory farms has a big sale going on and a lot of their cheeses and sausages are gluten free. Always a hit at my house. serve the cheese/sausage together or get the little sausages and have different mustards or sauces. Don't put out crackers :)

One of my favorites is a fresh bean/salsa dip-this makes a huge batch but it goes SOOO fast. Use one can diced tomatoes, one can shoepeg corn, black beans/kidney beans/red beans/black eyed peas, red/green bell peppers, red/green onions, little bit of cilantro, (I also use the tomatoes, corn, at least two types of beans, at least one type of bell pepper, one type of onions, and cilantro. after that, its whatever I happen to have!) Add a small amount of salsa and some italian dressing (1/2 c? I don't know). (I use more dressing than salsa, though). Mix up and chill in fridge. I always taste it once the flavors have mixed together and end up adding more dressing. The salsa and italian dressing just gives it a little kick! Serve with tortilla chips. I often use the "scoops" bc sometimes it'll be a bit runny. Warning-this stuff is ADDICTIVE.

You could either do a store bought sour cream-based (gluten-free, of course) dip and serve with fresh veggies, or buy sour cream and I like to add my own spices and make it. I have a garlic and peppercorn "rub" from Pampered Chef that I discovered is great as a dip.

Hope that maybe one of these helps! Have a very happy New Years!

One thing I made for a holiday party was a cheese and noodle dish that went over VERY well. I used rice lasagna noodles, and a mixture of mozzerella, munster and a bit of romano cheeses. Also mixed sugar, cinnamon, and a tiny bit of cloves and mace. I think almost any cheese mixture would do - I used what I had in the fridge.

Did several layers of the cheese mixture, boiled noodles and sugar/spice mix in a baking dish the night before. Just before serving I popped it in the oven for a couple of minutes until the cheese melted and cut it in bite sized "squares" and served with toothpicks. Made two big trays of this and there wasn't any left over. It tasted good cold also, so I could even have cooked and cut it up the night before. And it was a bit more filling than chips and dip.

I make a smoked salmon ball. Sorry, I don't measure exactly, but here's what I do. Mix an 8 oz package of Chevre (goat cream cheese) in a bowl with a little finely chopped onion and a splash of lemon juice. Then take about 4 oz of smoked salmon and put it in the food processor until it is very finely chopped up. Mix in with the cheese mixture. You might need more salmon. I keep mixing until the ball seems "right". Roll it in chopped pecans or walnuts. Refrigerate for a couple of hours. Serve with rice crackers.

Another favorite in my husband's family is to take a brick of cream cheese, throw a bunch of shrimp on top and then smother it with cocktail sauce. Serve with rice crackers.

And I make "Puppy Chow" with Corn and Rice Crunchems. Recipe widely available. I use almond butter instead of peanut butter and it goes over really well.

I'm a big dip person as well - works great with a load of fresh, raw veggies - spicy garlic hummus, black bean dip with sundried tomatoes, and raw ranch dressing are my favorites. Sauteed mushrooms are also good. :-)

there's so many varieities of hummus, unless you detest garbanzo beans, I'll bet you can find one you like. :-)
