When I Dip, You Dip, I Dip

Superbowl Sunday is here and I LOVE to eat all kinds of dip when watching football! In the morning I will normally throw everything together and store them in the refrigerator, prepping makes my life easier!  Right before game time I can put them in the oven so they’re ready for kick off.  All I have to do is take them out of the oven, open a bag of chips, pretzels or a box of crackers and I have a plethora of dipping options without leaving my couch.  So whether you are rooting for the Patriots or the Eagles, these dips will make your stomach cheer!

Hot Pizza Dip

1 8oz package cream cheese, softened

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon dried parsley

1/4 teaspoon dried basil

1 cup shredded mozzarella

1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 cup pizza sauce

2 ounces pepperoni, sliced

2 tablespoons chopped green bell pepper (optional)

2 tablespoons sliced black olives (optional)

Preheat oven to 350

Mix together cream cheese, oregano, parsley and basil

Spread mixture in the bottom of a 9 inch pie place or shallow dish.  Sprinkle 1/2 cup of the mozzarella cheese and 1/2 cup of the Parmesan cheese on top of the cream cheese mixture.  Spread the pizza sauce over all. Sprinkle with remaining cheese, then top with green pepper, pepperoni, olives (or whatever topping you choose).

Bake for 30 minutes

Note:  this dip is better if it sits in the refrigerator overnight to let the spices merry together.  Also, it does better with bagel chips or a sliced and toasted baguette instead of chips since it is a thick type of dip.

1 large can chicken

1 cup mayonnaise

1 8 oz package cream cheese, softened

1 small can chopped green chiles

2 tablespoons chopped jalapeno

8 oz shredded cheddar cheese

Bake for 30 minutes
