Super Bowl Re-Do

So, yes it's been a month since we witnessed the New England Patriots defeat the Seattle Seahawks in one of the most bizarre football moments I've ever seen. (RUN THE BALL!!!!) Anyway, sometimes time simply gets away from me and I wake up one day and realize I forgot to share a recipe with all of you. Such is the case with today's post.

Our big Super Bowl party with my in-laws actually got postponed due to Mother Nature. When she decided to dump 13 inches of snow on us all day Super Bowl Sunday, we all agreed the party would have to wait. So we actually gathered the following Sunday for a "Post Super Bowl", "Pre Valentine's Day" party. The company was just as fun, and the food was just as tasty. Plus, this way, we could discuss the game as a whole and critique all the mistakes accurately! (Again, RUN THE BALL!!!)

This was one of the things I took to share. I wanted something with a Mexican flare, and remembered I had a spice blend handing out in my pantry that I had barely used. Plus I knew I wanted something spicy but creamy in the same bite. Spice your tongue up, and then cool it down immediately.

This is a great party dip because a little goes a long way! It goes perfectly with tortilla chips, but it would be just as yummy with crackers, veggies or even pita crisps. And don't worry if you are thinking "But I don't have that spice mix." I give you a couple different ideas for substitutions that would be just as yummy!

Creamy Mexi Dip
16 oz. sour cream
2 TBS Tastefully Simple Fiesta Dip Mix*
8 oz. finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 (10 oz.) can Rotel with lime juice and cilantro, well drained
Dried Parsley for garnish

Combine all ingredients except parsley in medium bowl and stir well to combine. Chill for at least an hour before serving. Garnish with extra cheese and dried parsley if desired. Serve with tortilla chips or crackers. *NOTE* I realize not everyone has the seasoning mix sitting in their pantry that I do. For a substitution, either use another Mexican spice blend, taco seasoning or an even amount of garlic powder, onion powder, paprika and chili powder. Use 1/4 tsp of each to make 1 tsp and then 3 tsp to make 1 TBS, and then 2 TBS in the recipe.

They should have given it to Marshawn. This may sooth my frustration though.
