Game Day Foods

Sunday, SUNDAY, SUNDAY!!! 

I survived the 9/15 deadline!  Hallelujah!  Now it’s football day, and we decided to cook up a full-out game-day spread.  On the menu:

  • Italian sausage sandwiches with green peppers and onions
  • Outrageous Chicken Dip
  • Chocolate Chip Cookies

For the Italian Sausages, I pan-cooked some hot Italian sausages until they were nearly cooked through.

Then I put them in a crockpot with a large jar of spaghetti sauce and one white onion and two green peppers.

I left the crockpot on high, and these guys just hung out all day getting tastier and tastier with each minute.

Oh yes….

Jarrod and I are always looking for new dip recipes to try out.  So when I stumbled across this recipe for Outrageous Chicken Nacho Dip, we HAD to try it. 

Here’s what went in to the dip:

  • 3 grilled chicken breasts, shredded
  • 1 block Velveeta, cubed
  • 1 10 ounce can Rotel tomatoes, drained
  • 2 jalapenos peppers (1 seeded, 1 not seeded) finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup fat free sour cream
  • 1/2 cup diced green onion
  • 1.5 tablespoons hot taco seasoning mix
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
