Diane’s Hot Corn Dip – Submitted by Diane Webber


  • 2-15 ounce cans whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1-15 ounce can of artichoke hearts, chopped and drained
  • 7 ounce can chopped green chiles
  • 10 slices of jalapeno slices
  • 1 – 7 ounce package shredded parmesan cheese
  • 10 oz Mexican cheese
  • 2 cups of real mayo (not Miracle Whip)
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 3 dashes of Tabasco

Mix all ingredients and bake in 350-degree oven for 40 minutes or more. I sprinkle parmesan cheese on the top when I remove it from the oven. Serve with crackers of your choice (I like multigrain.)


Swiss & Bacon Dip – Submitted by Cary Utter
This is certain to be a super bowl fav.


  • 1 block cream cheese
  • 1 bag shredded Swiss cheese
  • 4-6 green onions
  • 1/3 cup mayo
  • 6-8 strips bacon
  • Ritz crackers

Let the cream cheese soften in a mixing bowl. Fry the bacon very crispy and set aside on paper towel. After cream cheese is soft add the Swiss cheese, onions and mayo. (I like to add part of the green onion stem for color.) Then, crush the bacon into small pieces and add to the mixture. Your mix is now ready for a glass baking dish. I spread it out about 1 inch thick. Top with cracker crumbs and bake in the oven at 350 for about 20 minutes (it should look nice and bubbly.)

It is piping hot so don't burn your mouth! I prefer on Triscuits, pita chips, or any cracker!

Super Bowl Dip – Submitted by Jean Mattock

This recipe is a hit every time it is served. It has actually become a tradition to make each Super Bowl, thus we call it Super Bowl Dip. It is simply three ingredients, easy to make and can be made ahead of time. 


  • 1 lb loose sausage (I prefer Owens Italian)
  • 8 oz cream cheese 
  • 1 can original Rotel  
  • Bag tortilla chips
Brown sausage over medium heat in a saute pan. Cut into small pieces. Drain oil, or mop up oil with a paper towel.  Add cream cheese and Rotel. Mix until cream cheese is softened and blended with all ingredients. Serve with tortilla chips. 

This has a nice kick, but if you like more heat use a hot sausage and/or hot Rotel. If making ahead of time, store in the refrigerator and heat in microwave for a minute or two prior to serving.



Trailer Dip - Submitted by Jaylyn Sprinkel


  • Cream Cheese
  • Wolf Brand No Bean Chili
  • Frito Scoops

Take the block of cream cheese (it’s best to leave it out of the fridge for a while to let it soften) and place it in a bowl. Pour the can of chili over the cream cheese. Heat in the microwave for one minute and 30 seconds. Remove and stir and repeat until cream cheese and chili and mixed well. Use Frito Scoops to put cream cheese/chili concoction in your mouth.

Five minutes later, the dip will be gone and you won’t know what happened!

Hot Pepper Jelly and Cheddar Cheese Crostini – Submitted by Sarah Puleo


  • Stonewall Kitchen’s Hot Pepper Jelly
  • Sharp cheddar cheese, sliced thinly
  • Sliced baguette or toast, lightly sprayed with olive oil and toasted until golden brown and cooled on a wire rack until room temperature


  1. Line your serving platter with as many crostini (toasted bread slices) as you need.
  2. Top each crostini with 1-2 slices of sharp cheddar cheese - enough to cover most of the bread.

  4. Serve at room temperature.


Trashy Fondue aka Queso a’la Mom a’la Aunt Shay – Submitted by Sarah Puleo

  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 4 oz. can green chiles
  • 1 can 14.5 oz. stewed tomatoes (Mom used Rotel)
  • 1 lb. Velveeta
  • 1 cup sour cream

As with most of my mom’s recipes, there are no instructions. So…you can follow my detailed process on my website – Betty Cupcakes OR just dump them all together and heat until cheese melts. Serve with chips or just a spoon. This make about 4-5 cups of queso which is more than anyone should eat alone. Be sure to share.

While you’re waiting for the cheese to fully melt and become one with the other ingredients, you can prepare the dippers for your trashy fondue. I sautéed up some cheese & garlic sausage and roasted some mushrooms & Brussels sprouts in the oven. The veggies took about 20-30 minutes at 450. Cook the sausage until it’s done and no longer pink.
