Growing herbs in your garden at home isn’t a terribly hard task. A lot of them just need to be planted, watered, and left in the sunlight. It’s taking those herbs and incorporating them into your food in a tasty way that is the much more difficult task. I like it when a place like Heartland Herbs appears with an offer of delicious dips made from combinations of herbs and spices, I get excited. It sounds so simple to create a herb dip, but the people who run Heartland Herbs do them very well.
Heartland Herbs has quite a few herb items to try, actually. Considering we’re just talking about dried ingredients, they evoke quite a few flavors. The “Chipotle Ranch”, currently their best seller, evokes a rich, smoky and savory flavor. Actually it’s the type of dip that tastes like it would go well on just about everything. The “Onion Bacon & Ranch” tastes good enough to be a dry rub, but as a dip it tastes like it would go well on chips for a party. The “Mexican Fiesta” is a little spicy and definitely evokes chorizo sausage.
Some of the more delicate flavors include “Onion Dill” and “Garlic Dill” which have very fresh flavors and “Cool as a Cucumber” which is every bit as crisp and pleasant as it sounds. Each dip really could go well in a variety of different purposes, not just on chips. Indeed, my favorite dip of them all is “Black Pepper Parmesan,” with its striking flavor. But really, everything here is striking, and a person with just about any taste will find something they enjoy.
Flavors to try: “Chipotle Ranch” is the popular favorite, but I also like the “Mexican Fiesta” and the “Black Pepper Parmesan.”
