6 Surefire Hot Dips for the Super Bowl

It ain’t a Super Bowl without a hot dip, or so I believe.  Here are 8 to choose from, each one a home run (yes, yes, I know, that’s a different sport, just mixing my metaphors)

Serve these with tortilla chips, pretzel crisps, pita chips, bagel crisps or crackers, and an array of vegetables.

    This is a decadent dip, but you can feel a bit better knowing that you have managed to work kale into it.  Make sure you chop the kale finely, so it becomes very tender and blends in completely to the dip.  My friends demolished this.

    I’ve always loved the saying ‘everything in moderation, including moderation.” This is how I think about cooking and eating in general; I usually like to cook and eat pretty healthily, but sometimes I like to just roll around in cream and butter and cheese. This Hot Corn Queso Dip is that kind of recipe. But look….there’s corn in it, too! And scallions! And you can sprinkle radishes on top! That’s kind of healthy. Let’s call this “Hot Corn Dip. “ Or, “Hot Corn Dip That’s So Good You Might Cry a...MORE Little, But Not In An Undignified Way.”
