We spent the majority of our weekend watching March Madness (while the girls watched Frozen)
We actually had the girls fill out brackets this year and we are also doing a Family bracket competition. Winner gets to choose which Frozen Yogurt place we get to go.
(We all like different Frozen Yogurt shops, so whoever's bracket wins gets to choose where to get Fro Yo. The girls are totally into it. It's cute)
Whenever we watch sports (which is often) I always like to make yummy snacks.
Sine yesterday was National Chip and Dip Day & we were watching Basketball all day, I knew I needed to make a yummy dip.
It is easy & delicious!
Here is what you need:
- Can of Hormel Chili with beans (or without beans if you prefer)
- Block of Cream Cheese (I use 1/3 Less Fat. Don't use Fat Free, it won't melt correctly & the dip texture will be ruined!)
- 12-16 oz Jar of Salsa (I use Chi-Chi's meduim salsa)
- Bag of Chips (I use Scoops so that I can get more dip in there!)
Put the chili, cream cheese & salsa in a pot:
Heat on low/medium heat and stir until cream cheese is melted.
When everything is melted through, put it in a bowl & serve it!
***Or, you can keep it warm on your stove and serve it from there. OR if you have a mini crock pot, that would be perfect to serve it out of)
I like a little more kick to this dip and I LOVE jalapeno's, so I always add some sliced jalapeno's to this dip. You can add as many as you want. I add about 1/4 cup & stir them in and then add a few for the garnish on top.
Grab a chip & dig in!
This dip is a total crowd pleaser and it perfect for watching Football or Basketball!
Here is my busted bracket. I am in the bottom 5 for my work bracket.
I have never done this poorly!
What really hurt me is I had Colorado going to the Sweet 16...they didn't even win in the 1st Round.
Whenever they are in the tourney, I always take them farther than I should.
It's so hard for me to separate my head from my heart when I fill out my bracket.
I keep hoping that one of these years Colorado will be the Cinderella story of the tournament.
I also had Kansas winning the entire thing (just like last year) and they lost in the 2nd round.
I'm going to go eat some dip & cry about my bracket.
How is your bracket doing? Is it as busted as mine is?
