Five Super Bowl Dips + Snacks to Satisfy Every Guest

Are your ready for a SUPER party!? The big game is this weekend and I have five Super Bowl dips for you to try. From meaty to vegetarian to something sweet, I have you covered with these yummy recipes! Last week Heidi Glaus from KSDK's Show Me St. Louis asked if she could film five of our favorite dip recipes in Eckert's Cooking Classroom for Show Me's St. Louis' Super Bowl Special. I immediately dug through my file of dip recipes to find these game-day favorites.

 Superbowl Dips

Superbowl Dips

There is something for everyone in this group of recipes. Queso Fundido with Eckert's Chorizo and Roasted Garlic Bacon Dip satisfy the meat lovers in the room while Decked-Out Hummus adds flair to a classic dairy-free, vegetarian dip. For an "easy button" option, you can't go wrong with  Pepper Relish Spread - a simple mixture of cream cheese and Eckert's Pepper Relish. And last but not least, Toffee Dip rounds out the bunch with something sweet to spread on sugar cookies or fresh apple slices. 

 You can find all the recipes for these game day dishes below. I hope you can catch my cooking demos for these five Super Bowl dips on Show Me St. Louis this Sunday, February 4th at 10am or visit http://www.ksdk.com/show-me-st-louis.

 Eat well on Game Day,
