Creamy dairy free chip dip is full of flavor and just the thing for dipping salty, crunchy potato chips!
My Grandma Tootsie was my mom’s mom. and she has been gone for 18 years now. She was a hair dresser, she loved to play the lottery, she taught me how to play Solitaire, (and double Solitaire!), she loved crosswords, she loved to drink Coke, she was a great cook who made delicious pierogies, she was extremely generous, and she really loved us.
Her chip dip recipe was a favorite of ours, and it had a secret ingredient – a spice blend called Beau Monde. I’m told that when I was just little, she was making a batch of chip dip, and saying the words “Beau Monde” in a silly voice and that made me crack up.
Beau Monde is a spice blend that’s super hard to find, but I found out that it is basically garlic powder and celery salt. So I adjusted her recipe, and the taste is very similar! This dip has a kick from fresh garlic and onions, and it’s addictive!
Is there anything better than dipping salty, crispy chips into a bowl of creamy, garlicky dip?
The recipe for this dairy free chip dip is super simple. I substituted dairy free milk and cream cheese, but we used to make it with full fat cream cheese and regular milk.
If you eat dairy, you should definitely make this, because it’s amazing. It turned out very well with the non-dairy alternatives, too! I do love that Daiya makes such a creamy cream cheese substitute.
This dairy free chip dip is:
- easy to make in a hurry
- perfect with chips or crackers
- delightful with fresh veggies, too!

Sometimes the question comes up about which brand of potato chips are safe for food allergies. I can’t speak for all allergies, but Cape Cod potato chips had a very thorough response when I contacted them regarding tree nut, peanut, and sesame allergies. Please contact them regarding your specific allergies and their current protocol.
