Dips are synonymous with watching sporting events on TV. This dip, even though I’m calling it “Soccer Game Day Dip”, is a great accompaniment to any yelling in front of the TV get-together.
So why am I signaling out soccer?
Partially because we’re watching the CONCACAF Gold Cup final. Partially because my brother has a game day dip that we associate more closely with football games.
But mostly because I got this recipe from one of my husband’s soccer buddies. He brought it over one soccer game day. I was very hesitant to try it, especially once I found out what was in it! It’s not very pretty, and it’s far from gourmet. But don’t judge it yet.
This dip is cream cheese and canned chili. That’s it. I don’t like canned chili and my husband doesn’t like cream cheese – but we both gobble this one up. The best dipping vessels for this party dish are Frito Scoops.
If I’m trying to minimize the amount of dirty dishes I’ll heat the dip in the microwave. And if your serving dish is microwave safe – then that’s an exciting bonus!
