Dip Baby Dip: 3 Great Superbowl Dips

R U Ready 4 Some Football!


I decided it's almost Superbowl time and to continue my theme for great Superbowl party food I am going to reprint some of my favorite go to dips.


This dip was just chosen by foodbeast.com in their 21 steamy chip dips that'll make you thankful for sloppy seconds.

4 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
1 stick butter, room temperature
4 oz. ricotta cheese, room temperature
4 oz. sour cream, room temperature
1/2 red onion minced

 This dip is spicy, cheesy, and savory. It's a party in the mouth for sure. 

Spicy Andouille Chili Con Queso

Adapted from Saveur

Ingredients:

½ lb. Andouille sausage, diced 
8 oz. sharp cheddar cheese, grated
8 oz. jack cheese, grated
8 oz. mozzarella cheese, grated
4 Anaheim chilies
10 fresh jalapenos
5 cloves of garlic
½ brown onion
1 tsp. creole seasoning
3 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp. sour cream


Directions:
Set oven temperature to broil. Rinse off vegetables and put in an oven proof pan. Top vegetables with 1 tablespoons of olive oil and 1 teaspoon of salt.
Roast chilies, jalapenos, garlic and onion until the chili skin is slightly charred, remove from oven, cover with a napkin and set aside for five minutes.
Dice Andouille sausage, add 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil to pot and cook diced Andouille until crisp about 10 minutes, drain and set aside. 
Discard stem off of chili and jalapenos. Remove charred skin off of chilies with the side of a knife, slit chili down the middle and remove seeds and vein. You can remove seeds out of jalapenos if you want to lessen the heat in this dish. 


I personally leave all the seeds and stems, I like it hot.  Place roasted garlic, onion, jalapenos and chili and a blender or food processor and pulse. Leave semi chunky for texture.
Heat a medium skillet on med high heat, add 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil, add vegetable mixture, season with creole seasoning and  cook for about 5 minutes to remove moisture. 
Add cheese to pan by the handfuls, making sure cheese is fully melted before adding next handful.
When cheese is completely melted add sour cream and stir then stir in cooked Andouille sausage. 
Enjoy.



This dip is excellent, I took a classic recipe and I "creolized" it with the addition of good ole' southern pecans.

I must confess I love great food. I decided to create The Creole Contessa blog after cooking and eating a great meal with my family Big Goo the hubby of almost twenty years and my lil’ Contessa Summer aka “Baby Girl." I told Big Goo and Baby Girl, it is just not fair to not share these great recipes with the world; and the Creole Contessa blog was born.
