Dips For The Day

Going through the Frisco magazine that came yesterday. ( I bet you think that my house is nothing by a pile of magazines, and you are almost correct. I do allow room for my baking pans and fridge to stock butter and cream cheese). A whole page of dips, which will come in handy if you are headed out to tail gate parties, or a cookout tomorrow or just sitting at home watching TV. Here were are a couple that caught my eye and will save them.

Hot Corn Dip
Cooking spray or butter to grease dish
2 (11 oz) cams of Mexican corn, drained
2 (4.5 oz) cans chopped green chiles, drained
2 cups grated Monterey Jack Cheese
2/3 cup grated Parmesan
1 cup Mayo
5 oz cooked chorizo (or Jimmy Dean Sausage if you are not a chorizo fan)
1/8 cup chopped cilantro
Tortilla Chips for dipping
Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9×13 baking dish.
In a medium bowl, mix the corn, chiles, cheese, mayo, cilantro and meat until fully combined.
Spread the mixture in the prepared dish and bake for about 30-35 min or until edges or lightly browned.
Knowing me, I will probably sprinkle more cheese over the top the last few min of baking.

Ugly Dip (Named after…well, I guess I will keep that to myself)
1 (4 oz) can chopped green olives
1 (4 oz) can chopped black olives
2 green onions, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
1 fresh jalapeno, chopped
1 tomato, chopped
Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Add garlic powder to taste, parsley flakes, basil and chives and black pepper to taste.
There are several additions I can immediately think of that I would probably add, like cubed avocado, artichoke hearts for example.

Pub Sauce
1/2 cup mayo
1 tables soy sauce
1 tables Worcestershire sauce
1 tables brown sugar
1 teas ground pepper
1/2 teas hot sauce
Mix all ingredients will, until thick. Serve over warm grilled burgers or use as a dip for fries.

Happy Labor Day! Remember all you Southern gals out there, it’s time to put away your white dresses, capri’s and shoes…The Fashion Police will find you if you continue to wear white after Labor Day…Just a warning, what if you have on white and for some reason you are caught on television!!! That is not a happy thought.
