DipTacular 2009

My bloggy friend BooMama is showing her Bulldog spirit today. She has had one of her best ideas yet! Over on her fabulously funny (seriously, you have got to read this) blog, she is hosting DipTacular 2009, a recipe swapping party for you your favorite ballgame/tailgating dips. You know I’m all over that one! And why stop at just one recipe when there are so many to share? I’ll give you four of my favorites. ‘Cause I like to over-achieve like that.

Creamy Ham Dip
1 loaf french bread
1 1/2 cups sour cream
1 block of cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup green onions
1/3 cup green chiles
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup shredded ham
dash of Worcestershire sauce

Mix all ingredients together (except french bread loaf, because really, how would you do that?)Cut off top of french bread and hollow out the middle. Put dip in bread and replace top. Wrap in aluminum foil and bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees. Serve with Fritos Scoops or Wheat Thins.

Caribbean Fruit Salsa
1 jar fresh sliced mango, drained
1 can pineapple tidbits, drained
1 red bell pepper
1 green bell pepper
1 small red onion
3 tablespoons cilantro
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons lime juice
Peel and dice all ingredients (except don’t waste your morning trying to peel those bell peppers. CC has already called me out on that one.) Mix together. Chill at least 2 hours. Serve with Fritos Scoops or tortilla chips. This recipe is also great served with grilled fish.

Hot Onion Dip
1 large sweet onion, diced
1 block of cream cheese, softened
2 cups grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
Blend all ingredients well. Add more mayonnaise if it’s too thick. Transfer to well-greased casserole dish. Bake on 375 degrees for about 20-30 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with Fritos Scoops or Wheat Thins.

Cheesy Corn Dip
1 8-oz container sour cream
3/4 cup mayonnaise
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
3 11-oz cans mexicorn
2 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 7-oz can diced green chiles
2/3 cup sliced green onions
Combine sour cream, mayonnaise, and cumin in bowl. Stir in mexicorn, cheese, green chilis and onions. Serve with tortillas or Fritos Scoops.

And just in case you missed it, remember Lulu’s caviar? That’s a good one, too! Y’all enjoy!
