Check out these excellent options for your next football party:
1. Chile Con Queso Dip
I love that this cheesy dip actually uses a blend of delicious and real cheeses instead of loading it up with all of that fake stuff. Sharp cheddar and savory Monterrey Jack are perfectly paired with flavorful veggies and a little bit of kick thanks to jalapenos, green chilies, and pimentos. Toss all of the ingredients into your crock pot, let the flavors melt together, and then serve with veggies or tortilla chips.
2. Best Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe
Buffalo Chicken Dip is definitely a staple at every game day appetizer spread. It’s a fan favorite bot only because it tastes amazing, but because it is incredibly easy to make. This is by far the best and easiest Buffalo Chicken Dip around. In this cream cheese chicken dip recipe, the melding of cheese, dressing, hot sauce, and chicken does something wonderful in your mouth that is almost irresistible.
3. Cheesy Roasted Red Pepper Dip
From Crumbs and Chaos
One of my favorite vegetables is the tasty and versatile red bell pepper. You can create the most amazing dinners, sides, and appetizers featuring this ingredient, but if you really want to wow your sports loving guests you have to serve this Cheesy Roasted Red Pepper Dip! When having a get-together, it never hurts to have something hot and cheesy surrounded by chips or bread.
4. Artichoke and Spinach Dip
From Everyday Lounge Act
Artichoke and spinach is one of my favorite flavor combinations. Is that weird? This tip is like comfort food for me.
5. Champagne Fondue
From The Juggling Act Mama
I adore fondue – I mean, what’s not to love? For the last several years, it has been our tradition to make a cheese fondue at home around New Years. This year, I thought I’d truly get into the spirit and try to kick it up a notch with this recipe for Champagne Fondue. It is delicious served as an appetizer, for a fondue party, or with a meal over broccoli or tortellini!
6. Spicy Cheese Dip
From The Sweet Spot Blog
Cheese dip and football parties go hand in hand. I love this option as it allows you to give the dip a little kick. Pun intended.
7. Best Black Bean Dip
From Recreate and Decorate
This corn, black bean and feta dip is so delicious that your football fans won’t even think about how healthy it actually is.
8. Vegetarian Taco Dip
From Love Always, Mommy
Made with re-friend beans instead of meat, this one’s a real crowd pleaser regardless of whether guests only eat veggies.
9. Olive and Feta Dip and Chips
From Slick Housewives
Mmmm feta cheese, how I love it so. A spoonful of this dip on a pita triangle makes the perfect football party appetizer.
10. Red Garlic Hummus
From Slap Dash Mom
Hummus is a super versatile dip that goes with pretty much everything, is healthy, and it’s really easy to make your own at home. One thing I absolutely love about hummus is that you can make it any flavor you want! This Red Pepper Garlic Hummus is loaded with flavorful ingredients that make for a unique and delicious party dip. Serve it with some fresh cut vegetables, crackers, or sliced bread.
11. Fresh Chunky Guacamole
From The Sweet Spot Blog
I normally make a four ingredient guac (avocado, garlic, cilantro and lime) but when I want to take it up a level I go for a recipe like this.
12. Dried Herb Ranch Dip
From The Freshman Cook
When you don’t have fresh herbs handy, this recipe is a great go-to option. Dried Herb Ranch Dip uses dried, store bought herbs to flavor the creamy appetizer, but does not skip out on any of the taste. It is perfectly served with blue corn chips and a variety of your family’s favorite fresh veggies. The best part? The recipe is so simple to make that it will be on the table in ten minutes or less.
13. Texas Cheese Dip
From Kat Balogger
Straight from Grandma’s box of all time favorite recipes, this amazing Texas Cheese Dip is perfect for serving at tailgate parties or game day feasts! Creamy Velveeta cheese is seasoned with pepper and loaded up with hearty ingredients like breakfast sausage and just the perfect amount of kick. The secret ingredient gives this dip an extra special touch.
14. Light and Healthy Greek Dip
From The Pinning Mama
It seems that I do pretty well providing healthy meals for my family but when I am entertaining, all of my favorite appetizers are filled with mayo, sour cream or cream cheese. And while I love some rich creamy spinach dip, sometimes you just want to serve something a little lighter or that you can consume ridiculous amounts of with out feeling terribly guilty. This lightened up Greek Dip is the perfect solution! It’s filled with tomatoes, capers, and feta cheese, perfectly served with sliced toasted baguette.
15. Cheddar and Bacon Dip
From Crumbs and Chaos
I’ve featured a few cheese dips in this round-up but this one takes a cool twist on it with the addition of bacon. It will please the men-folk and the party hosts, since it is super simple to make. This is a dip recipe where you just stir the ingredients together, refrigerate and serve! It’s made with the perfect mix of sour cream, bacon bits, ranch dressing mix, and cheddar cheese.
