Spicy game day cheese dip

Spicy Game Day Cheese Dip

This cheese dip is enticingly bold, creamy, and piquant — and with the addition of chipotle peppers, it has just the right amount of smokiness. It will bring your guests to their feet, and there doesn’t even have to be a game on!

The zesty chipotle and jalapeno peppers, offset by the smoothness of rich Monterey Jack and extra sharp cheddar cheeses, plus velvety cream cheese, make this recipe completely addictive. This chunky dip pairs fantastically with tortilla chips, crackers, or even veggies.

It’s a one bowl stir and chill dip that can be easily made ahead. If you’re looking for big flavor that your guests will go crazy for, this is the perfect recipe to whip up before the Big Game.
