    Default Party foods! Dips, chips and more!

    So I'm not into the whole football thing, but parties come up always! So what are some staples you bring or see at your parties?!

    Default Rotel Dip

    1 package sausage
    1 can Rotel tomatoes
    1 package cream cheese

    Brown sausage in skillet, drain. In a clean skillet, place drained sausage back into pan with DRAINED rotel and cream cheese. Mix until well blended together. (Keep your rotel juice, you can use it if the dip is too thick/dry-- but I have found in the past when I put the entire can of rotel in the mix it makes it too soupy)

    Serve with tortilla chips!

    **I have always made this in a crock pot that way you can keep it warm

    This dip is at EVERY party we have, I can not even begin to tell you how great this is! Very simple, VERY easy! I like it because if you'd like it a little more kick, you can buy a HOT sausage or you can get a spicier can of Rotel.

    Cobb loaf, hubby is always trying to find reasons for me to make one. There are lots of different recipes for them, hot and cold, vegetarian and meat.
    I can't find my recipe, but this is it from memory

    Ingredients
    A cobb or vienna loaf
    250g cream cheese
    1 cup grated cheese
    1 cup mozzeralla cheese grated
    A good handfull of diced bacon
    1 onion, diced
    shallots

    1. Cook bacon and onion
    2Put all ingredients in a bowl and mix
    3. Cut top of cobb or Vienna and scoop out the middle. Place dip mix in the hollowed out space
    4. Tear all insides and top of bread into dipping sized chunks (often getting a french stick as well is a good idea for extra dipping bread) place these with the cobb loaf in the oven. Remove bread chunks when toasted and cobb when all the cheese has melted and it's a big gooey dip.
    5. Serve. As the dip is eaten you start tearing the sides of the loaf down to dip with as well.

    Doing a search for cobb loaf recipes brings up lots of variations as well. I do all sorts using a similar base, but there are other ways of doing it as well.

    ETA: My cousin made this for her daughters birthday yesterday, but made mini ones with dinner rolls. It's a bit time consuming hollowing out the dinner rolls, but a great idea to stop double dippers.

    Default Homemade Salsa & Homemade chips!

    Slasa
    Red Tomatoes
    Red Onion
    Cilantro
    Balsamic Vinegar
    Red pepper
    Garlic

    Chop tomatoes (or if they are not in season, diced can tomatoes work also), red onion, cilantro and throw in bowl. I have also found a food processor works well for this, just make sure you don't make it mush!

    Add chopped garlic and a SPLASH of balsamic vinegar, mix in red pepper for spice. This is best when it can sit a few hours before being served, the flavors will meld together.

    Chips
    package of flour tortilla shells
    vegetable oil

    either use a deep fryer or a pan on the stove to heat your oil.
    cut your tortilla shells into any shape, we usually just stack a few and use a pizza roller

    when your oil is hot, put your chips in a few at a time, they will be in oil for a few minutes until golden. Place on paper towel so the 'extra' oil can soak off; salt if desired.

    It's a little time consuming but totally worth it!

    Default Bacon wrapped lil' smokies!

    1 package of lil' smokies
    bacon
    brown sugar

    Pre-heat oven to 350ยบ. Wrap lil' smokie with a piece of bacon (we usually cut the bacon in half, a whole piece doesn't cook as well). Poke each one with a toothpick as you roll, make it easy to 'heat and serve'.. Place lil' smokies on cookie sheet. Cook smokies for about 30-40 minutes making sure bacon is cooked.

    When they are nearly ready to eat, sprinkle a little it of brown sugar on each lil' smokie and put back in the oven for 5-10 minutes. Most of the sugar will melt and run off.

    Messy and gooey but OH so good!

    ETA...tried it and love it

    Crockpot Chicken Salsa

    1 pound chicken breasts (no skin or bone)
    1 cup of salsa
    1 packet of taco seasoning mix
    1/4 cup FF or light sour cream

    Put chicken in crockpot - cover with salsa and seasoning. Cook on low 4-5 hours or high 3-4 hours. Remove the chicken and add the sour cream to pot and stir.
    Serve chicken with a scoop of sauce on top.
    Serves 4 at 5 pts each
    This recipe is VERY flexible - you can even cook it on the stove - just brown the chicken first and then continue.


    I usually eat this with Tostitos. It is from WW
