1. Chile Con Queso Dip

From Bakerette

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.

From Spaceships and Laser Beams

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.
