Happy Friday, ya’ll!
I am super excited for this weekend because we’re throwing a mini-football-watching party with some of our friends. Even though I’m not a huge football fan, I’m all about having a lame excuse to throw a party or get-together at the house.
And what better than a football watching, chili eating, beer drinking party??
Of course the hubby is a much bigger football fan than I am, or maybe ever will be, but I still enjoy spending time with him and throwing little parties for everyone… even if it is mostly to watch some football together.
He always puts up with all the DIY and HGTV shows that I thoroughly enjoy during the week and throughout the year when football is in off-season so I think I can compromise when it comes to handing over the remote in the fall.
I don’t know about you but when I think about a football party, chili and beer and two of the things that come to mind. I don’t normally make a large meal for a party because everyone brings a little something but I do love to cook up delicious snack and side dishes that people can munch on while they watch the game.
Football doesn’t require a big meal and snacks and munchies are the go-to option for game days and little gatherings.
This time I am going to be some making some of this Chili Cheese Dip. This stuff is amazing and this dip comes together in less than 10 minutes.
What makes it so simple is this brand new line of ready-made chili that Progresso recently debuted. This chili is perfect for when you have a chili craving but don’t feel like making a whole pot of chili just because you have a craving.
In this recipe I used the smokehouse beef and pork flavor but Progresso also has a meat-free option and southwest style white chicken chili option.
Something for everyone and every craving that you may have!
So get your chili on with your first (or second, third, fourth…) bag of Progresso ready-made chili and get to cooking this chili cheese dip for your next party.
