Football Dip

Happy football season! It’s that time of the year again. If you know me, you know that I love fall for many reasons, one of them being Penn State Football. Growing up, my mom would make this dip every Saturday for us to snack on while watching Penn State play football. I thought the best way to celebrate the beginning of this football season and the relaunch of my blog is to share our “football dip” recipe.

  1. Place the 8 ounces of cream cheese in the casserole dish and microwave for 15 seconds.
  2. Then spread the cream cheese evenly across the bottom of the dish.
  3. Add the can of beanless chili and spread on top of the cream cheese.
