9 Store-Bought Vegan Dips You Need to Try

We’re loving these ready-made dips and spreads for everything from nachos and veggies to sammies and chips.

The grocery aisles are stocked with everything from cheesy vegan sauce to tangy tzatziki—all ideal to spruce up your appetizer, meal, or snack. Here are 9 store-bought vegan dips that you need on your shopping list!

Core & Rind

Cashew Cheesy Sauce

Core & Rind—a women-owned brand—makes a Cashew Cheesy Sauce that is available in Bold & Spicy, Rich & Smoky, and Tangy & Sharp. The plant-based, paleo, and keto-friendly condiment is packed with healthy fats from cashews and contains full-flavored spices to kick your mac ‘n’ cheese up a notch. Head over to the chip aisle and grab some today—these jars are shelf-stable.

Good Foods

Plant-Based Queso Style Dip & Plant-Based Buffalo Style Dip

A dip with a kick! Good Foods provides creamy condiments made with veggies and nuts. The queso-style and buffalo-style dips both contain only three net carbs, no added oils, and pair well with veggies. Found in the refrigerated section of major retailers, such as Target and Costco, this product is a must-try!

Siete

Spicy Blanco & Mild Nacho Cashew Queso

Siete is known for its cassava-based grain-free chips, which pair perfectly with their cashew queso sold nationwide in two flavors—Spicy Blanco and Mild Nacho. The brand uses coconut milk powder to provide a thicker consistency, keeping the sauce dairy-free and paleo-friendly.

Trader Joe’s

Fiesta Cashew Dip & Dill Pickle Hummus

Trader Joe’s cranks out vegan-friendly items, including Fiesta Cashew Dip. We suggest you warm it up for 30 seconds before mixing it into freshly cooked pasta or DIY nachos. Their Dill Pickle Hummus is back in stock! The tangy flavor adds an unexpected twist to traditional store-bought hummus. The snack, served with creamy vegan cheese and crackers, will elevate your vegan charcuterie board.

Fabalish

Tzatziki Plant-Based Dip

Fabalish—a plant-based and allergen-friendly company—offers a must-try Vegan Tzatziki Plant-Based Dip. The sauce uses aquafaba (chickpea water) to replace the yogurt in the original Greek classic. Pro tip: Drizzle your falafel and roasted veggies with tzatziki for an authentic taste.

The Dairy Free Co.

Take It Cheezy Cashew Dip & Hot Mama Cashew Dip

The Take It Cheezy Cashew Dip is the perfect condiment for a big ol’ soft pretzel! The cheddary plant-based dip is made with organic cashews and spices to provide a deep, smoky flavor. If you’re looking for spice, indulge in the Hot Mama Cashew Dip as it contains chipotle peppers to turn up the heat!

The Dairy Free Co.

Bitchin’ Sauce

Chipotle

Bitchin’ Sauce—an almond-based dip—uses simple ingredients like spices, liquid aminos, and nutritional yeast. The dip is higher in protein at 2g per tablespoon, so generously dress your plant-based tacos with our favorite flavor, Chipotle. Select flavors are sold at Whole Foods—use the store locator on the Bitchin’ Sauce website to find them near you and stock up.

Kite Hill

Queso & Tzatziki

Kite Hill is known for their spreadable nut-based cream cheese, but they also make dairy-free dips in queso and tzatziki! These classics-turned-vegan are the perfect accompaniment to organic corn chips or freshly chopped veggies. Why settle for one flavor when you can try them all?

Whole Foods

Plant-Based Queso

Whole Foods is stepping up their plant-based game with queso that’s made with chickpeas! This dairy-free concoction uses a smooth blend of pumpkin purée and chickpeas to create a creamy, saucy vegan dip that’s perfect as a topping or in your favorite pasta dish.
