Sunday! Sunday! Sunday! In our house Sunday equals football and food! With the end of football season fast approaching, so is Super Bowl Sunday. And Super Bowl Sunday is basically a holiday, at least when it comes to the food. The combination of the food, the commercials, the halftime show, and of course, the football game itself, makes Super Bowl Sunday a family affair. Todd and myself are big football fans, and obviously big food fans as well. We like to go all out for Super Bowl Sunday, try new recipes, and create a big, tasty spread. Last year, we made a bunch of different recipes, and tried a different dish each quarter.
This year, money is pretty tight, and we are on a very strict budget, and there is not much wiggle room in the budget for a big spread. So instead of picking 5 or 6 different recipes to prepare, we decided that we would make just one dish this year. We had several to pick from, I mean, my Pinterest appetizer board is full of strong Super Bowl party worthy contenders. Between the toasted ravioli, the french dip crescents, the cheesy pesto bread, and more, we had so many options. We decided on a beef enchilada dip recipe I found on Pinterest. All we needed was ground beef, enchilada sauce, cheese, an onion, garlic, and tortilla chips. It is a simple recipe, that fit into our budget. Todd made it the other night, it was quick and easy. He used a little more cheese than the recipe called for because…well, it’s cheese, and sometimes a recipe is just a suggestion. Other than the amount of cheese, Todd followed the recipe (which is a miracle in itself), and we sat down on our couch with some of this delicious dip on a Friday night, and the fat kid happy dance soon followed. We were very happy with the way it came out, it was hearty and cheesy. It is definitely a recipe we will make again. If you are tight on a money, but need a dish to bring to a Super Bowl party, or any other Sunday Funday you have planned, this is a yummy, affordable option.
