This weekend is my husband’s favorite weekend of football… the great 8 as he calls it. This time of year is spent with a lot of games on our TV and lots of yummy football food. As we prep for the Big Game and the gathering of family and friends there are a few things that make party hosting easier. Of course everyone is looking for great food, but when you’re planning a party you know more is involved.
Here’s one of our family’s favorites… Mexican Bacon Cheeseburger Dip.
Using great quality paper goods is essential for hosting a party. After the game is over and everyone has gone home, I don’t want to spend my evening doing dishes. To prep I took a trip to Smart and Final and picked up some of their Simply Value bowls, plates and napkins along with everything I needed to make this delicious dip.
This dip is hearty and warms you from the inside out.
Here’s the Mexican Bacon Cheeseburger Dip Recipe…
Mexican Bacon Cheeseburger Dip
- 1lb ground beef
- 5 slices of bacon
- 2lb Velveeta cheese
- 1 can Ro-tel
- salt and pepper to taste
|Cook up your bacon strips as you desire. I like to cook mine at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes.|
|Brown your ground beef on your stove top over medium heat until all the pink is gone. Drain the fat.|
|Slice the Velveeta cheese into big chunks and add it to the browned ground beef over medium heat.|
|While the cheese is melting slice your bacon into big chunks.|
|Once the cheese is melted add the can of Ro-tel and your bacon and turn your heat to low. Let is simmer for a few minutes.|
|Serve hot with chips or slices of french bread.|
I love that this dip can be made in about 20 minutes.
Once it’s all prepped, I love putting in our mini crockpot to keep it warm throughout the game.
Ground beef, cheese, tomatoes, bacon and spices… you can’t go wrong!
This dip is great on chips or piled on a slice of French bread.
