Super Bowl

On Monday morning, when this post was originally supposed to go up, I realized that I should have actually posted it last week. Oops. I never promised to be efficient. Anyway...

I Snap Chatted (you can follow along: el_michelle86) my two Super Bowl dishes on Sunday, and a few friends/family members asked for the recipes. So, I decided to share them on here.


My take on the recipe:

2 - 10oz cans chicken breast
1- 8oz package of softened cream cheese
1/2 cup - Ranch dressing
1/2 cup - Frank's Red Hot Sauce
1/2 cup (or your desired amount) - Shredded Mexican cheese blend

Combine all of the ingredients together, bake at 350 degrees for about 15-20 minutes. You can add a little extra shredded cheese to the top and bake for one more minute, if desired. I serve the dip with tortilla chips. But the past few times I have made it, I've dipped cucumbers and carrots in it for less carbs. It's actually just as delicious because you're still getting the crunch! ;)

Cookies and Cream Football Dip

For the dip:
1 - 8oz package of softened cream cheese
1 & 1/2 cups - Powdered sugar
1 stick - softened, room temperature butter
16 crushed Oreos (I added 18 this time)

Mix the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and butter together. Set aside a few tablespoons for the laces later (I actually cheated and bought cream cheese frosting for the laces, though). Mix in the crushed Oreos. Put the mix onto desired serving dish or wax paper, shape into a football.

For the topping:
4 Oreos (open and scrape the filling out)
2 teaspoons - Cocoa powder

Finely crush the Oreos and mix with cocoa powder. Spread the topping all over the football mix to completely cover it. Use the remaining cream cheese frosting to create your laces on top. 

We used Nilla Wafers, Oreos, and pretzels to dip, but I'm sure any kind of cookie or graham cracker would taste delicious.


Can we talk about how proud I am of this dip? Also, how adorable is that serving dish!?

I think I'm going to make it again for Easter. I want to use the dip as dirt, and put bunnies and carrot shapes around it. We'll see how that turns out- I'll be sure to share!

I hope everyone had a fun Super Bowl Sunday! That day is up there with Thanksgiving and Christmas for me. Next year, though, I'm taking Monday off! :)
