Days are getting longer and warmer on this part of the planet. Finally!

And there’s absolutely no excuses not to spend more time out enjoying the nice weather. Catching up on TV shows should be reserved for cold, snowy days.

This summer I want to say YES to more summer fun! As you may know, my summer is starting with our visit to Mongolia. Grant is having a blast here by the way.

But to you I propose a Rooftop Dips & Chips Party to kick off the summer entertaining! How fun does that sound?

Fresh air, cool breeze, ambient city noise, sunset… Can it get any dreamier? I think not.

Summer Rooftop Dips & Chips Party

Really, I can’t think of anything better than hanging out with friends at a rooftop party on a breezy summer evening enjoying fresh air and creating fun memories.

Choosing a theme for a party is always a good idea. That’s why I partnered with Frito-Lay to bring you this Rooftop Dips & Chips Party idea.

The goal is to have an easy and effortless spread, so you can spend more time mingling and less time prepping. Besides, you can even throw this kind of easy gathering on a weekday! Why wait for the weekend to party, when you can easily wind down mid-week with simple and delicious food and a great company.

Now, let’s talk about our dip!

You’re looking at the most versatile and easy party cheese dip! And you guys know how obsessed I am cheese dips, but this one is special!

You need only 3 ingredients: cream cheese, ranch dressing and cheese. You mix everything in a bowl and microwave it for less than 2 minutes, and you’re DONE! Serve the dip with variety of Tostitos chips. My latest favorite is Tostitos Chipotle Thins, but have you seen Oven Baked Scoops? One word: amazing!!

But the best part is you can add in Tostitos dips for another layer of flavor. My favorite pairing was with salsa con queso Tostitos dip! Cheese explosion! And creamy spinach dip was the second favorite. Experiment with different flavors and find your favorites too. I guarantee your guests will have so much fun customizing their own dips.

I hope you enjoyed this rooftop party idea, and please try this cheese dip. And if you experiment with other Tostitos dips, let me know your favorite pairings. Thanks for reading!
