DipTacular Dips

OK so Boo Mama is hosting a dip party if you will. It's really to kick off the College Football season but I love anything that I can dip chips into or anything that contains cream cheese for that matter.

But seriously what a better way to get some new ideas for the impromptu tailgating shindig where everyone just shows up and your house and then screams at the TV for the next 3.5 hours.

I know the big talk is about A&M moving to the SEC and so on, but I just have to say this, I don't really have a preference, it's college football season...enough said. Gig'em.

Ok back to the reason for this post. DipTacular dips!

I have two.

1. Baked Potato Dip
1 16oz container of Sour Cream
1 package (2cups) of finely shredded cheddar cheese, mild, sharp, it's really your preference
1 3oz package Oscar Mayer Real Bacon Bits
1 package Ruffles potato chips

Empty sour cream into a bowl and season to taste with salt and pepper. Add bacon bits and and mix well. Add cheese and mix well again. Serve with Ruffles potato chips.
*It's better if you let sit over night and serve the next day.

2. Chocolate Chip Dip
1 8oz package Cream Cheese - softened
1/2 cup butter - softened
3/4 cup of confectioner's sugar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup (6oz) miniature semisweet chocolate chips
ham cracker sticks - I used Teddy Grahams

In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and butter until light and fluffy. Add the sugars and vanilla; beat until smooth. Stir in chocolate chips. Serve with graham cracker sticks. makes 2 cups.

Happy Dipping!

She didn't include the best one:

Best Hot Sauce Ever
1 can whole tomatoes
1 can stewed tomatoes
1 can Rotel (Get the spicyness you prefer)
1 Tbsp Garlic Salt
1 Tbsp cilantro (fresh or dried either will work)
1 Tbsp Ms. Renfro's Green Salsa

Put it in the blender and blend to preferred consistency. Serve it warm with chips.

The Ms, Renfro's is a Texas thing. They have it at HEB and WalMart. You can substitute it with Arriba or another brand of green salsa. We also use "No Salt added" Tomatoes when we can find them because we don't like it too salty.
