#tbtHolidayEdition Recipe: Mexican Dip + Giveaway

Hello there, 2015!!

It's here, the time of year when you can start a new slate along with everybody else. Be anything you want and look forward to what's to come.

This is my last #tbtHolidayEdition and technically should have been posted already but I didn't even sleep in my own bed last night so things have been a bit off. No worries, everything was great I just had too much to drink and it was better if I stayed at my friends house. Have you ever had a chocolate martini? I hadn't until last night and I had THREE!!

I'm going to talk about what we did for New Year's Eve growing up and share the recipe that must be made. Even when it's just a few people partying with my parents. Of course we don't have a lot of pictures because it was always very mellow. Board games, Video Games, crafts like when we made our own party hats last year.

I still love to spend my last night of the year playing board games, see?

Back home in Kansas, normally we would get together with my aunt, uncle and cousins who lived three miles away on the same dirt road. Food is a big part of any gathering our family has, and on top of the veggie and pickle plates we all love our chips and dip. Don't you?

The one dip that must be made, even last night when I left and it was just my parents, is what we call Mexican Dip! It's super cheesy, has a great kick and it tastes awesome when you dip Nacho Doritos chips into it.

Mexican Dip

1 Lb. Ground Beef
1 Med. Onion
1/2. Cup Butter
2 (10 oz) Cans Enchilada Sauce (1 hot + 1 mild)
2 (4 oz) Cans Green Chilies, chopped
1 Lb. Velveeta Cheese, cubed

Brown ground beef and chopped onion. Add butter, enchilada sauce and green chilies. Add cheese and cook until it melts. Serve warm w/tortilla or nacho chips.

That's it, simple easy and done. A lot of people have a recipe similar to this or have tried it at a party so now you can make it too! Here's a link if you want to print it out for your own recipe book.

I'm also participating in a giveaway with a sweet blogger who also happened to write a book that's on my never ending TBR list. Thanks for putting this together, Chelsea!
