Are you ready for some football?
I don't know how ready I am to actually follow the game, but I am ready for some football-watching food. I LOVE Super Bowl day. It's a day to chuck any and all New Year's dieting-type ideas out the window and eat whatever you want.
it would be un-American not to.
I made this dip a few weeks ago for a party, and the adults pretty much fought the kids to get their fill---which is saying a lot, because the oldest kid was 9, and I *know* for a fact there was plenty of double-dipping going on.
There's both Velveeta and cream cheese in this dip, so if your cholesterol is offended by these ingredients, you shouldn't make it. Instead, pick something light and healthy from the archives.
1 block (8 oz) cream cheese
1 pound velveeta
2 cups jarred salsa (I like the one with beans and corn from Safeway)
1 (1.25 oz) envelope taco seasoning mix (McCormick is gluten free)
Use a 4 quart or larger slow cooker. Dump everything in. It will not look pretty, and that's okay. Cover and cook on low for about 3 hours, or on high for 90 minutes or until the cheeses have fully melted and are heated through. Stir well and serve with your favorite tortilla chips.
or celery, if you must...
I saw one of our neighbors use his finger to scrape out the bowl. I didn't tell him I was watching.
Happy Super Bowl!
