The perfect chip-to-dip ratio
The best chip-to-dip ratio can be a matter of personal preference, but as a general rule, you want to aim for a balance between the two. The ideal ratio is typically around 2:1, which means two parts chips to one-part dip. This allows for a generous amount of dip to coat each chip without running out too quickly.
However, the ratio may need to be adjusted depending on the thickness of the chip and the viscosity of the dip. For thicker chips, you may need less dip, while thinner chips may require more dip to avoid breaking. Ultimately, the best chip-to-dip ratio is one that allows you to enjoy the flavors of both components without overwhelming one or the other.
