Possibly the easiest crowd-pleasing real food dip, creamy salsa was my mother’s go-to party snack. No fuss, no measurements, a step above plain salsa and chips, and sure to please the pickiest eaters.
Want to bring something easy to the Superbowl that’s NOT loaded with fake food or added sugar? Try this creamy dip.
What was your first Super Bowl memory? Mine was making mini pizza calzones with my mother. We took our Easiest Bread Dough, filled it with pizza sauce, pepperoni, and mozzarella cheese, and baked them until they were toasty and golden.
Between that and the fact that the Super Bowl was the only football game my parents watched, I became the person who attends Super Bowl parties for the food.
What about you? Which are you? If you love the food, this dip is a winner. You can snack on it in between commercials. If you love the game, don’t waste time making something fancy. Toss this together and get to that game!

That sounds very good. Another similar dip is cottage cheese and salsa. Served with tortilla chips. I know it sounds strange but it’s very good and cheap & healthy too.
That sounds great, Morgan!
