Hello, November! You really snuck up on us this year. I guess time flies when you have a 4 month old. My husband was excited to plan this year’s Halloween Party, and he definitely didn’t disappoint!
The day of the party I had a work event, so I didn’t have my usual prep time. Thankfully, Halloween is totally his thing, so he had the décor and party ready to go – we just needed to add snacks. I had an absurdly busy day and there was no way I was going to be able to prepare something in advance, so instead I ran to the grocery store the night before to grab boxes of ready made cookies and brownies and about 10 bags of chips. While I was in the snack aisle I figured I would search for something more…something simple that would also soak up all that alcohol.
If you are a food blogger and the party is at your house, you’d better have something at least semi-homemade so you don’t look like a fraud! So in typical food blogger fashion, I logged into my Pinterest app and searched for “easy bean dip.” One of the first recipes that popped up was “easy five minute bean dip.” 5 minutes? I’ll take it. Like most of my recipes, this recipe is embarrassingly easy to make as long as you have five minutes and the very basic ingredients in your pantry.
My grandma would have a heart attack knowing I served beans from a can. Shh, don’t tell her!
I suggest grabbing a bag of Frito scoops to serve with this dip. It only takes 5 minutes to make and will disappear in less time than that!
Have you ever stood by a dip and shoveled chip after chip in your mouth without even stopping to breathe because you literally cannot control yourself, it’s that good? I have. And I’m pretty sure people were giving me the “are you really still eating” look, and I pretty much just ignored it. Well, let me tell you, this is the dip that will cause you to lose all control (you’ve been warned). In fact, you may want to make this dip, divide it in half and hide the rest for later so you can eat all by yourself without any judgment.
Aside from being insanely delicious, this is the perfect dip to bring to a party because you just throw everything in a bowl and mix it together. You can literally throw this together at the last minute. There is nothing worse than waking up the day of the BBQ and realizing you forgot to prepare something to share. By that time of course its too late, having already spent several hours rousing the family to get them out the door. But not with this black bean chili cheese dip. This is the perfect last-minute party dip, and it’s saved my life quite a few times.
The key ingredient to this recipe needs no introduction… the ever so creamy Velveeta cheese. There is just nothing like it. It’s what makes this dip so delicious! Your friends and family will be begging you for this recipe. Is it just me or do you feel like you’re doing something illegal by adding Velveeta to a dish? Whatever, its delicious.
Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!
There are some recipes that you simply shouldn’t mess with. You know, like a classic apple pie or a perfect margarita. They are perfect just the way they are. This spinach and artichoke dip is no exception. It’s cheesy and gooey, and with the right bread, you can’t go wrong.
Summer is here, people, and you probably have approximately 42,317 BBQs to attend in the next few months. If you’re like us, every weekend is packed with fun things to do. Everyone’s pool and backyards are now open and instead of asking, “What can I bring?” just let me know you will be bringing this dip and some refreshments. BOOM. Summer is served.
If I ever have the opportunity to put a recipe in a bread bowl, it is a no-brainer. It’s perfect because you can tear off a chunk of delicious bread and use it for dipping into this indulgent concoction.
Just trust me and make it!
Some of my oldest and dearest memories are of watching my uncle Ken play college football and hearing him scream at the TV during a 49er’s game – and this dip has his name written all over it! This tasty mixture is often referred to as the quintessential “Superbowl dip.” If you love wings as much as I do, this is perfect for you! The family football obsession has continued since my uncle Ken, as Bobby and I are diehard fans. Our favorite team is the San Diego Chargers – a romantic evening for us might include driving the two hours to go to the games early and tailgating at the stadium. So sexy, huh?!
This last season, my husband and I took my dad to a Chargers vs. Raiders game. Of course, the Chargers won and the football love was carried on up the family tree. The only thing that would make these games better would be the presence of this mouthwatering buffalo chicken dip!
It is super simple to make – all you need to do is throw all the ingredients together, and you can even do it in a Crockpot! As you know, I’m a fan of anything involving Crockpots, and this is no exception.
