National Chip And Dip Day

National Chip and Dip Day

National Chip and Dip Day is officially observed on March 23, but if you’re like us, every day is national chip and dip day. We just call it chips and salsa, a true Texas staple!

From tailgating to a day at the lake, dips like salsa, guacamole, queso, and hundreds more make awesome snacks. They’re easy to make and don’t require a lot of prep. Just grab a bag of chips and dig in!

Nowadays, you’ll find all kinds of chips available at your local Spec’s from traditional tortilla chips, potato chips, and corn chips, to the more exotic bean chips, pita chips, naan chips, popchips, and even veggie chips. Pair any of those with any of Spec’s dips and you’ve got a delicious snack in no time! You’ll find an incredible selection of dips and salsas at Spec’s – from layered dips, yogurt-based dips, dill pickle dips, cheese dips, crab dips, hummus, or any other unique creation out there like the blend of horseradish, garlic, and onion found in Rothschild Dip.

If you find yourself serving a bunch of munchers, try one of our amazing specialty dips, like Spinach & Bacon, Spinach & Artichoke or Tex-Mex Dip from one of our catering locations.

When it comes to pairing a wine with your favorite dip, hummus stands out as one of the most flavorful. And with so many flavors of hummus, you’re sure to find one you love, and a wine to match.
