I am a proud Delta Gamma. I serve on the Alumni Board, am also an advisor to our local chapter, and write all the "recs" for the New Orleans girls going to LSU (and for some reason, Alabama, gross!) We had a pumpkin carving party with our local collegians just before Halloween and we alums were asked to bring a dish and a pumpkin since the girls would probably bring neither. I decided to make a hot dip as I did one last year and the girls went nuts for it! I had some things lying around, bacon, a Lipton soup packet, cheese, cream cheese and green onion. I had to purchase the sour cream, tomato and fritos, but that was a small sacrifice to watch the girls bite into and be so thankful and tell me how good it was! I made this up, but it is based on several recipes from several other other blogs, mostly Plain Chicken. Figured this would be a good post for today since there is so much football and shopping this weekend and people need snacks! Full recipe after the montage! And a bonus recipe follows!
|The cast. Like this won't be good, right?!|
|Throw everything in the bowl...except the Fritos, they are for dipping!|
|Mix it up nice and well!|
|Bake in the oven to make it more delicious!|
|Voila! And #teamnomayo friendly!|
|The Girls tore into it. Hearing 18-22 year olds asking each other if they tried the awesome dip made my heart smile!|
8 oz cream cheese softened
16 oz sour cream (the bigger one)
one tomato, chopped
three pieces of bacon, browned and chopped
One envelope, Lipton Recipe Secrets golden onion soup mix
1 cup sharp cheddar
4 green onions, white and green part, chopped.
Preheat oven to 350. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Place in an oven safe dish (I used a pie plate) and bake in oven for 15 minutes. Serve with Fritos
Best Dip Ever is an oldie but goodie staple for our annual girl's trip that has been cancelled but really needs to be reinstated and after random drunk nights out in our 20's. It is delicious no matter your state of inebriation and would be great for any party or tailgate!
Best Dip Ever:
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 jar of corn and black bean salsa
1/2 bag of mexican shredded cheese
Spread cream cheese on the bottom of a microwave safe dish
pour salsa over it
top with cheese
microwave for 5 minutes. Serve with tortilla chips. Amaze your friends and family!
