Gourmet your burgers with ANY of our Savory Dip Packets.

Take 1 1/2 lbs. of ground beef or turkey and (we suggest) adding our Bacon Cheeseburger dry mix or Cheddar Jalapeño dry mix, to enhance a bold flavor. (Use more meat if preparing with a ‘hotter’ dip packet, and wear gloves when making).

Use our Roasted Herb and Garlic, Tuscan, Bruschetta or Italiano Specialty Dressing Olive Oils and add one cup of 100% Pure Olive Oil then toss with one pound of cooked Angel Hair pasta.

Shake and Bake chicken

with our South West Ranch dry mix packet. Slice 4 pieces of chicken breast into strips and toss in a Ziploc bag with our South West Ranch dry mix. Grill, and make chicken fajitas or a spicy chicken wrap.

Spice up your shrimp cocktail

and serve with our Snap Dragon (Vampire/Spicy Santa) dip.
