I know most of us asked for a white Christmas, but I wasn’t considering an actual blizzard to be taking place in Texas. Tornadoes, flooding and a blizzard all happening in one day in this great state. We’ve hunkered down and have stocked up on all the essentials like bread, peanut butter, toilet paper and of course batteries. Now these batteries are not for flashlights but instead for the kids new toys to keep them busy if the power goes out.
While I was still able to cook and enjoy good food I whipped up a fun Slow Cooker Mexican Dip that would be great for any New Year’s or Super Bowl Party. It also works for blizzards as well when you get the case of the munchies or need something for lunch.
I’m always up for a Mexican themed party with margaritas, salsa, fajitas and dips. This Slow Cooker Mexican Dip is a great addition because it has some of your favorites included in it like cheese, refried beans, enchiladas sauce and ground beef.
Now I know that chips are usually the perfect addition to any dip, but I’ve switched it up a bit today by adding some crispy baked pita chips. I took a couple of Toufayan pita loaves and cut them into triangles and broiled them in the oven for a couple of minutes for a little dippin’ fun. You could also just purchase the Toufayan pita chips to cut back on some time.
This dip can be made in advanced and warmed up at any party. You can also make the pita chips ahead and bring them in a little baggie before plating.
Happy early New Years!
