Jalapeno Bacon Dip

This is a Game Day win.

Maybe it’s cliche but my favorite part of game day parties is the food. And the socialization.

I understand football, don’t get me wrong. I played powder puff in college at the Free Safety position, I even made a girl cry once. But that’s on her, if you can’t handle the heat, stay out of the end zone.

It’s just that my attention span is pretty short when it comes to things I have no emotional investment in the outcome.

But I do love being at the house of true fans, which give me some emotional investment in their team winning. I’ll root for your team, and bring you some bacon dip, as long as your team isn’t playing The Seahawks. Because if I root against The Seahawks, I might wake up a single woman the next day.

Mac And Beer Cheese Soup

Note: Cheese sauce separates easily if the mixture is brought to a boil, or if pre shredded cheese is used. If the mixture does separates, try to puree the cheese sauce with a hand blender before you add the noodles.

  1. Dude, I have no idea how football is played! I come from a soccer (football) background but I just can’t get into the football buzz…powder puff does not make me think of football though, was that some kind of make up game?? I do know I’d go through anything for some dip though!!

  2. No football here in Holland and dips like these aren’t that common either. That doesn’t mean I wanna make this really soon though;) It looks so comforting and addictive, even the description gets me drooling!

  3. I love this dip! I made it for a Christmas Eve family gathering, and it was a big hit! Thank you for sharing your recipe.
