My husband loves football, and I grew up in a family where “the game” was always on TV on Sundays. While I'm not a huge football fan myself, I do love Superbowl Sunday. Whether we spend the day at my parents house with my side of the family or at James' parents' house with my in-laws, the day always means party food!
Gathering around the television to watch a football game and nosh on some yummy snacks is what makes football fun for me! My husband's family always has sandwiches and tons of snacks that get rolled out one after the other throughout the game, while my family tends to snack on appetizers throughout the first have, indulge in coney-style hot dogs during half time then eat dessert throughout the second half. I even remember the first dish I contributed to the Superbowl party in my family: Chili Cheese Dip! Since then I've moved onto more complex recipes, but this simple and tasty recipe is a perfect crowd-pleaser for any football game:
Chili Cheese Dip Recipe
2 8-ounce packages of cream cheese (softened)
1 15-ounce can of no-bean chili (I like Hormel)
16-ounces finely shredded co-jack cheese
Spread cream cheese on the bottom of a oven-safe dish. I use an 8×8 square but a 7×11 works, too! Spread a layer of chili over the cream cheese. Finish with a layer of shredded cheddar cheese. Bake at 325 for about 20 minutes, until bubbly. Serve with tortilla chips. Note: this can also be microwaved for about 3-5 minutes until thoroughly hot, but it looks much better if it's baked!
