It’s football season!!!!!!!! Opening weekend has always been a holiday in my family, that we shared in some way with the Wolf Pack. I’ve talked about them in the past, they’re our friends/family out in Arizona and the answer to how Casey and I ended up in the desert. 🙂 We started out without any kids and would watch football over at their house every weekend. Then Hayden, my oldest monkey, was born and we had to get the season ticket for ourselves and so we would get together as often as possible for games or just talk on the phone all day about the games if we couldn’t. This year we were moving into our new house without any t.v. set up yet and a mountain of things to do so we missed most of all the games this past weekend. 🙁 It was really sad to miss out on our tradition but there’s always this week and my boys won with out me, so I will have to get into the football spirit and I can think of no way better than Pam’s Ugly Dip!!!
Pam (leader of the Wolf Pack) has made this for us for years every football season. It sounds like I’m being mean but I’m not. 🙂 Pam called it the Ugly Dip because she couldn’t think of the name and it wasn’t gorgeous but it is delicious!!!! I will say, in defense of the dip, that it isn’t that ugly it’s just not that colorful. You can eat this with chips or crackers and it will be a big hit. It just screams football food with the beef, chilis, and cheese how could you not love it. I’m gonna be making the Ugly Dip this football season and talking to our Wolf Pack on the phone and making the best of the situation. Give this dip a try and you’ll never judge a food by it’s cover again! 🙂
