Hi Friends!

It is football playoff time and a lot of the men in my family love watching football and eating snacks while they do!

So, to celebrate this time of year I am posting recipes over the next two weeks that will be perfect for your playoff parties!

Today’s recipe is for Playoff Popper Dip. It is warm and cheesy and oh-so-yummy. It is perfect served with crackers or raw veggies!

If you are feeding a large, hungry football viewing crowd, I would AT LEAST double this recipe! They are going to gobble it up!!

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Bake Time: 20 minutes

1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 lb. (8 oz.) Velveeta, cut into small cubes
