I'm sharing my final of our tailgate recipes this week - in time for everyone to give them a try before season's over. Today it's all about the dips again (you can see part one with tailgate dip and sausage dip here). and both are on the mexican side as well as eaten with tostitos.
If you missed the previous tailgate treats from this season, you can find them below…
pepperoni pizza rolls
crockpot sweetish meatballs
tailgate dip & sausage dip
Tortellini Pasta Salad
Mexican Layer Dip:
We used to get a delicious mexican layer dip at Wegman's (their tailgate stuff in State College is the best!) but it was always too much dip and we'd wind up throwing half out. It seemed maybe easier to make our own, customized to what we liked on it. We used the Wegman's dip as guide and the new dip turned out delicious.
can refried beans
+ spread the refried beans on the bottom of the pan, be generous, we used the whole can
+ spread guacamole on top of the beans, again be generous (who doesn't love guac)
+ spread sour cream on top of the guacamole
+ sprinkle cheddar cheese on top of the sour cream
+ top on the center with diced tomatoes and then olives
Black Bean Salsa:
In addition to just serving regular salsa with our mexican type dips, we really wanted to try out a homemade heartier salsa this year. Enter black bean salsa - so easy to make and had my house smelling delicious until serving time. The only downfall - it makes a huge batch so be ready to eat!
can of black beans
can of white shoepeg corn
two cans rotel
+ chop the peppers and add into the bowl
+ add the can items: black beans, corn and rotel
+ sprinkle in some garlic seasoning
+ blend together and enjoy
