Typically, I would save my tailgating recipes for the weeks leading up to Superbowl Sunday.  However this year, our tailgating season has become extended due to our high school’s run into the state playoffs.

We have two boys and a lot of their friends who play on the team – and this weekend , we head to Northern Ohio for the State Championship Game.  So in honor of the big game  – I thought I would share one of our favorite nacho dip recipes for tailgating.  Of course, it’s just as good to eat in between the games, practices, and pep-rallies!  Not only is it easy to prepare, it makes enough to provide for a large party (or a few football players).

Nacho Dip
The Ultimate Tailgaiting Nacho Dip

Crockpot Nacho Dip

Ingredients:
8 oz. bar of cream cheese
1 pound (16 0z.) of Velvetta cheese  (I prefer the Mexican or Jalapeno versions)
2 cups of Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
1 can of Hormel Chili No Beans
1 jar of Salsa (we used our homemade salsa that we canned this summer)
1 pound of Hot Italian Sausage

Optional: diced jalapenos, green chiles, diced fresh onion

Nacho Dip
Simply Irresistible – especially to the football players!

Directions:
Brown and drain Sausage. Cut cream cheese and Velveeta cheese into cubes for faster melting.  Place all ingredients into a crock pot.  Place on high if you are serving it within the hour.  Or place crock pot on  on low if you have 3-4 hours before needed.   Stir occasionally.

Once melted and hot, serve with tortilla chips.
