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.

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.
