On Saturday, we were heading to the Annual Wolverines Jaguars Day at WHS. It was another chance for Diana to march onto the high school football field with a high school cheerleader. In addition, I had to be there for our team and help them practice their halftime routine. They did so well! Prior to the game, we partook in the tailgating party. I still can't believe that Marion and I started this 5 years ago. The tradition continues and grows bigger every year.
So...with all of the responsibilities and rushing around, I needed something quick. It was Pinterest to the Rescue again. I read a couple of different dip recipes and then put together my own concoction and I am calling it Tailgate Dip! You can even get more creative and add different ingredients to it like corn or jalapenos if you are really daring!
- 2 (8oz.) packages cream cheese, softened
- 1/4 cup creamy ranch dressing
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup beer (I used Corona Light)
- 3/4 cup cooked & chopped bacon
- Green onions, chopped
Directions:STEP 1: In a large bowl, mix cream cheese and ranch dressing using an electric mixer or stand mixer until smooth and creamy.
STEP 2: Mix in your favorite beer until combined.
STEP 3: Add in shredded cheese.
STEP 4: Add chopped bacon and green onions and mix until combined.
I served with a couple of options: Wheat Thins and Lime Flavored Tostitos- both were amazing! You can really get creative with your dippers- pretzels, Ritz crackers and even veggies would work too!
Try it...it is the perfect accompaniment to an outdoor football game!
