Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make this dip ahead of time?

What goes well with Bugles dip?

Aside from using it as a dip for your chips and fries, you can also use this as a spread for your sandwich. Why not try it with a deli sandwich or cheddar bacon hamburgers.

What can you substitute with cream cheese?

If you do not have cream cheese, then sour cream is a good alternative. Use around 1⅓ cups of sour cream as a substitute to 8 ounces of cream cheese. You can add a bit of milk to make it creamier and less tangy. But don’t let your dip be too watery so remember to add the milk in moderation.
