Creamy Warm Dried Beef Dip


Fall and football season are my favorite time of year. I have been following the preseason games wondering how this season will play out. Whether you watch college, professional, or high school games there are those times that you want a warm, creamy dip for snacking on before or during the game. This is also great to make for guests who just happen to stop by. Keep a can of dried beef on hand and most of the other ingredients are items I have in my fridge and pantry for those times you want to serve your guests something but you don’t quite know what to serve.

Verdict:

My family likes this dip because it is so easy to put together both kids can easily make it on their own. You can easily customize this dip with other spices if you like. The kids like to play with it adding more garlic or onion powder to make the flavor more intense. It is entirely up to you!

      Thanks. Play with the spices and make it into something your family will enjoy. When my daughter makes it she leaves out the onion but adds onion powder for the flavor. My son prefers more garlic. It is all in what you like!

  3. I don’t think that I’ve ever heard of canned dried beef. Do you mean beef jerky?

      No. It is made by Armour and comes in a sealed can/jar like thing. It is usually near the SPAM or Deviled Ham in the grocery store.
