It’s crunch time! We’re in the midst of football playoffs and I can hardly wait to see if my favorite team makes it to the big game. (Fingers crossed!) I’m already planning my big game menu and completing my Walmart grocery shopping list.

Are you ready for the big game? You have to try my homemade jalapeno popper dip. It pairs perfectly with veggies and more!

Life-long Football Fan

I’ve been a football fan as long as I can remember. I was a cheerleader from the time I was in first grade all the way through to high school. I well remember my very first cheerleading outfit, those little black and white saddle shoes and blue and white pompoms.

After all these years of being a fan, I actually understand the game of football.  My three brothers all played football in high school and one of them was the star quarterback. As a cheerleader and a fan, I never missed a game. And I won’t even go into detail about my teenage crush on a certain football player at my high school. 🙂

Nowadays, when it comes to football, we are a house divided. This past Sunday, my future son-in-law was cheering for his favorite team (not mine) and they were leading the entire game until the very end and the kicker missed the field goal! I do believe I saw tears in his eyes! Yes, we take football seriously around here.

We also take football food seriously. Everything I serve has to taste delicious, but I’m not about to spend the day in the kitchen missing all the action. That’s when our favorites, Red Baron Classic Crust Hawaiian-Style, and Red Baron Brick Oven Cheese Trio make an appearance. It’s “Crust Perfection in Every Bite!”

Jalapeno Popper Dip

Over the years, I’ve nailed down the football food necessities and that includes pizza and crunchy veggies and dip. I also have a few tricks up the sleeve that keeps me in on the action and away from too much food prep. I buy Red Baron Pizzas, Edwards Pie (for dessert) and pre-made spinach artichoke dip and white bean dip from Walmart.

Before the game begins, I cook the pizza according to the package directions and make homemade Jalapeno Popper Dip.

Let’s make some easy Jalapeno Popper Dip! Mix the sliced Jalapenos and cheese. Place in a pie plate and bake for 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly.

Helpful Hint: I like it hot, but if you don’t like a lot of heat, dice the peppers and reduce the amount to 1/4 cup.

Cut the top off of a red pepper. Remove the seeds and fill with Jalapeno Popper Dip. Garnish with bacon and chives and serve with veggies, crackers, and pizza.

Are you ready for the big game? My Jalapeno Popper Dip is easy as pie and it pairs perfectly with Red Baron Pizza and veggies. Speaking of pie, Edwards Turtle Pie makes a sweet ending to a great game.

My family would so love this Jalapeno Popper dip considering they love jalapeno poppers. I love how you put the dip in the pepper which I will have to do. The Red Baron Pizzas are my boyfriends favorite and this one we have not had in a while so we will have to pick one up. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

We are HUGE football fans in my house, and game day snackin’ eats are essential. I fully admit that frozen pizza is often on the menu. And the Edwards Cookies ‘n Cream pie is my kids fave (like seriously, I think they prefer it to my homemade pie).

Ooooh, that kick! My mouth just dropped. Lol. I’m a Packers fan so I really didn’t want either of those teams to win. I am obsessed with football too so I love planning the food too! It’s just part of Sunday!

My son-in-law and his kids are big Packers fans. So, of course, they don’t care for the Vikings at all.

This is going to be our first year hosting for Super Bowl. Adding these to the menu for sure. I hadn’t thought about getting frozen pizzas either. I think I have the majority of the appetizers set.

If you don’t like it hot like I do, use a mild pepper instead. It would taste great with a red bell pepper.
