Superbowl or Dipbowl?


With my team playing the reigning Super Bowl champs this year, you would think I would be ecstatic for Sunday’s game. Sadly I’m not. Every year I stress for a week or two about what to serve for our annual Super Bowl party. After scrolling for some new recipes through cookbooks and Pinterest, I decided to reach out to some local friends for ideas. What I came to find out was I’ve been over thinking my Super Bowl menu for years. Almost every person I talked to makes a simple and delicious dip. So this year I’ve turned my Super Bowl feast into the Dip Bowl!

Bacon and Swiss dip is a favorite for Anne Bradley, marketing director at the Center for the Arts. This dip is super easy and quick to make. It’s best served hot, so save it as your last cooking project on Sunday.

4 ounces mayonnaise
1 1/2 cups Swiss cheese, shredded
8 ounces cream cheese
8-9 strips crisp bacon, crumbled
Preheat oven to 350 F. Set cream cheese out to soften to room temperature and further soften in microwave for 10 seconds, if necessary. Place mayonnaise in medium bowl. Next add swiss cheese and bacon. Stir in softened cream cheese.
Spread evenly into a shallow glass pie pan or small casserole (8×4″). Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Serve with Frito Chips.  


Caroline Pembroke, store manager at Stio, has Rotel Dip as her go to Superbowl snack. I made this the other night for a few friends and it was devoured within an hour.

If you really don’t feel like spending time in the kitchen there are plenty of places to grab some delicious dips and snacks. Swing into Jackson Whole Grocer and head to the kitchen section to fill up containers with their famous coleslaw, olives, and hot bar delights. If you are heading to Teton Valley, stop by Victor Valley Market and grab some of their popular spinach and artichoke dip!
