Man Dip

I originally ran across this recipe several years ago on Recipezaar, which is now lovingly known as Food.com. I had it saved in one of my dozens of cookbooks and it has been sitting in the back of my mind since. I was trying to figure out a dip to make for the Super Bowl that could not include ingredients my brother-in-law loathes. That would be.. anything creamy or considered a condiment (other than hot sauce). I remembered this dip and it fit the bill just right. I halved the original recipe for our small get together and it worked perfectly. If you are having a large get together, double this and throw it in your Crock Pot!

And I got perfectly STUFFED eating the stuff.

And hey, just because football season is over for now.. don't forget that March Madness is looming and there will be a need for man dips.

Or sooner even! This week is rivals week in college basketball. Whip up some man dip and watch Duke get whooped! (hehe)


1/2 lb ground beef
1/2 lb ground sausage
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 lb Velveeta cheese, chopped into cubes
2 jalapenos, seeds removed and chopped
tortilla chips

1. Brown meats, onion and garlic in a large skillet. Drain.
2. Add chopped jalapeno. Stir in cream of mushroom soup.
3. Stir in the cubes of Velveeta cheese and continue stirring until melted.

4. Transfer to a crock pot to keep warm (I used my dip sized crock pot.)
5. Serve with tortilla chips and a cold beer!
