I love homemade guac, tzatziki, hummus, and any spicy salsa, especially tomatillo.

I'm not really a dip person so when I do have it, store bought works best.

I usually just buy the premade sour cream dips as they're convenient and I only serve dips usually at parties. There are a few dips that can't be bought premade though that I love to serve. Shrimp cocktail dip for one. And potted beef dip is big at family events (though something i'd never serve to friends or coworkers).

I usually get store made because I am lazy, but if someone else wants to make a dip that's great too!

I don't care for chips and dip. I buy dip occasionally to have with crudites or use sometimes to spread on the base of a wrap. If I do buy it I only get a small tub. I can't actually remember the last time I made it myself...might have to have a go next time I want some dip!

I don't let myself have chips and dip often, but when I do it doesn't really matter where it comes from, as long as it tastes good.

I'm usually lazy and buy mine but sometimes I'll make it.

i don't really eat dip, so i don't buy or make it. the only 'dip' type thing that i've bought is humus and i think that it's almost allowed. i know lot of people that have managed to mess up their home made versions.

I make my own dip using the packaged powdered dip mixes and nonfat plain yogurt. It's very low calorie and NO ONE can tell the difference. I usually bring it with me to parties and most people think it's made with sour cream and mayo.

I either do store-bought or make one with one of the seasonings from Tastefully Simple. The Bacon Bacon is always a hit!

I could have dip and chips for dinner. I love to make or buy it as long as it's good.

Store bought. Unless you count mixing Velveeta and Tostitos Salsa as a homemade dip :)

I do both! I'm with Party...I love dips. Can't get enough of them. In fact, I hate it when I still have chips left and I run out of dip!

I usually like to make my own, but if time doesn't permit I like to buy the gourmet kind (and at least 1 sour cream kind because those are so popular with guest...ok, so I'm the one that ends up snarfing it all down Man, looking at that pic I want me some chips and dip now. Mostly because I just ate this pheasant chili and all I could think of was "this needs a dollop of sour cream on it".

Sometimes it's easy to grab a container of it, especially when headed to someone elses place for a party but I definitely make my own dips when I'm at home - even salsa. It just tastes soooo much better. And great, now I want French onion dip :P

We normally do the package of onion dip mixed into a container of sour cream. It's tasty and everyone likes it!

I usually buy dips but one of my favorite ones is also the simplest: low-fat sour cream mixed with a packet of powdered ranch dressing! It's great for veggies and chips. :)

I did on Superbowl Sunday because I was being lazy and it was horrible. I do love the ones from Trader Joe's, but they are always so fattening, that I usually prefer to make my own.

I love dip! But I am picky I guess, and don't really buy it from your average supermarket. there is a gourmet supermarket in my neighborhood that makes the best spinach dip that I could live on! Of course I would not be so healthy, but I would be smiling!
