Maybe it’s the Midwesterner in me, but I love a good creamy cracker dip and couldn’t wait to share this easy recipe! It takes 5 minutes to make, and can be made ahead for a crowd.

Start by mixing softened cream cheese with a little mayonnaise (or sour cream, if you don’t like mayo), spices, and fresh chopped herbs. It’s thick, spreadable, and tastes amazing.

Ingredients for Cream Cheese Dip

I cook with fresh produce from my garden and from Misfits Market– they sell fantastic fruit, vegetables, & pantry staples at a discounted price. We get Misfit boxes every other week and love picking out seasonal produce for delivery. Get $10 off your first box by clicking here!

  • Cream Cheese – I like using a simple classic cream cheese, any brand you prefer, but whole, plain, full-fat is best.
  • Classic Mayonnaise: I like to use this classic mayo for a delicious and creamy flavor. If you don’t normally like mayo, try my homemade dairy-free version… it’s creamy but still plant based.
  • Fresh herbs – I used fresh dill, but you can use fresh chives or parsley instead.
  • Onion Powder: adds a delicious and savory flavor to this dish
  • Garlic Powder: I stock up on garlic powder, because I love using it in recipes for added flavor and depth. I love this organic garlic powder and add it to a lot of recipes that I would use fresh garlic in.
  • Fresh lemon juice

How To Make Cream Cheese Dip for Crackers

  1. Take cream cheese out of refrigerator, and place on counter for at least 1 hour until it comes to room temperature.
  2. In a food processor, add the softened cream cheese, mayonnaise, onion powder, garlic powder, fresh dill (or fresh herbs), and lemon juice. Mix on high speed for 2 minutes until ingredients are well combined.
  3. Spoon cream cheese dip into a serving bowl, and serve with crackers, chips, or vegetable sticks. Refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container for up to 2 days.

Dietary Modifications

  • This recipe is vegetarian, and is not made with meat. For a vegan version, use a plant-based cream cheese alternative and a vegan mayonnaise.
  • For a gluten free version, ensure all added ingredients (inducing spices) are certified gluten free.

What’s the Best Food Processor for Dips?

We have this fantastic food processor that has lasted us years and years, and I have to say I’ve been very happy with it! It gets weekly use, and is great for chopping ingredients for sauces, making hummus and dips like this, and pureeing vegetables.  

It’s inexpensive, easy, basic and gets the job done!  While you can make this dip in a blender, I prefer using our food processor to get the texture just right.
