Need an appetizer perfect for watching that sporting event or for a family get-together? This Hot Beef and Bean Dip takes your typical bean dip up a notch for an addicting, family friendly dip.
And can you believe that it’s already time to start talking sports food again, too? 😉 I know we just finished with the Super Bowl, but now we have March Madness right around the corner.
We are not die-hard sports fans at our house, but we do enjoy watching games every now and again. Especially when it comes to tournaments or bowls or finals. And I’ve said it before, but my biggest pull to turn on that big sporting event is more about the food than the actual game.
So I have found the perfect dip to make when you are getting together with friends or family to watch the game. This Hot Beef and Bean Dip is so much better than your typical bean dip. Don’t get me wrong – I love regular bean dip as much as the next person, but add in some beef and lots of cheese, and heat it up and serve it warm, and you have a dip that is addictive and delicious.
This is so good. Trust me on that one. It makes a ton of dip, and my husband and I got through it all embarrassingly fast. It may or may not have been dinner or lunch a time or two.
What is your favorite food to make and eat when you get together for a sporting game?
