In honor of my football-loving birthday boy, today I’m sharing a man-friendly recipe that’s absolutely perfect for serving to the guys on game day! After all, nothing makes my husband happier than the arrival of fall, which automatically means football season (and just as importantly, fantasy football season).
I’m happy to report that this dip got the male seal of approval! Keith loved it with the potato chips — after all, it basically combines the tastiest toppings from a loaded baked potato and melts them together in one creamy bite. The recipe gets my seal of approval because it’s incredibly simple and FAST to prepare. This is the perfect party food for all of your gatherings this season!
