How to Freeze Sour Cream Dips

Sour cream-based dips, such as ranch, make ideal party appetizers when served with chips or bite-size vegetables. The tasty dips feature rich sour cream and a variety of flavorings and seasonings, including dried herbs and chives. If you have leftover sour cream dip that you'd like to save for longer than a few days in your refrigerator, you can freeze it. While the dip will be safe to eat, its texture and consistency may change when thawed.

Serve savory sour cream dip at a party or special event.

Things You'll Need

  • Moisture-resistant plastic storage container or heavy-duty freezer bag

  • Spoon

  • Storage label

Step 1

Spoon the sour cream dip into a clean, moisture-resistant plastic storage container or a heavy-duty zip-close plastic freezer bag. Allow a 1-inch space at the top of the container or bag for expansion.

Step 2

Press an airtight lid onto the container. Remove all of the air from the plastic freezer bag by pressing down on it before sealing the closure.

Step 3

Create a label featuring the dip's storage date and attach it to the container or bag.

Step 4

Freeze the sour cream dip at 0 degrees F for up to two months. Thaw the dip in a refrigerator and whip it with a whisk to help it regain its creamy consistency before serving.
