Dip, Baby, Dip! by Chef Asata Reid

Host the "big game" without missing the play-by-play action (or the commercials) when you use this fantastic spread of dips. Choose party pleasers that will appeal to the wing dunkers, the celery crunchers or both. To keep your guests happy, and yourself out of the kitchen, call your local deli before game day to order a crudités and cheese tray and a couple of assorted wing platters. Pick up an assortment of breads, crackers and chips for dipping and you'll score as the reigning MVP of good grub.

Warm Crab, Spinach & Artichoke Dip
Good enough to eat with a spoon, this creamy crab, artichoke and spinach concoction will please the most finicky gourmet in your group.

Bacon Ranch Dip
Bacon is the best thing that ever happened to ranch, and this dip is the best thing that ever happened to a crudités or wing platter.

Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus Dip
Give plain, old hummus new life with the tangy sweetness of sun-dried tomatoes and fresh parsley.

Smoked Salmon Mousse
Use high quality smoked salmon, fresh dill and lemon juice to make this delicate mousse irresistible.

Nuke It Chili Cheese Dip
Can't cook? No problem as long as you have a can opener and a microwave. Turn up the spice on this cheesy chili dip with your favorite brand of salsa or hot pepper sauce.

Seven-Layer Cheese Dip
This Super Bowl classic won't weigh you down like the store-bought versions, which can be impossible to sink a chip through. The secret to seven penetrable layers is lightening the load with sour cream.

Roasted Red Pepper and Olive Tapenade
This Mediterranean-inspired mouthful explodes with flavor. Top the tangy tapenade with crumbled feta cheese for full taste overload.

Curry Lentil Pate
You'll never miss the meat in this vegan one-pot wonder.

Chocolate-Orange Fondue
Use chocolate with at least 70 percent cocoa and break out the good liqueur for the classic flavor pairing in this fondue. Don't have a fondue pot? What did you think that slow-cooker was for?

Cheesecake Dip
This light and creamy dessert dip is great for dunking fresh fruit like strawberries or apple slices.
