Dippy New Year’s Eve Party Ideas

Free product was taken and consumed to bring you this dippy posty.

Mmmm cream cheese. Dontcha just love it? The fiance even likes it on pizza, which is a little odd but good.

And after this weekend, Ms. Quirky will be abstaining from things that have the words cream and cheese in the same list. So, I better get my fill while I can.

In fact, I have pulled a whole new regime of recipes from Cooking Light to try in the New Year – both for Fire & Wine and regular meals. I’m actually really excited about these and trying to get the fiance as excited as I am about the next two months of really buckling down.

Last week the fiance’s family got together at our house for a game night. No game night would be complete without dippy foods. I decided to pull out the Four Cheese Baked Natural Cheese Crisps my friends at Pepperidge Farm sent me to try for a Fire & Wine night. I actually forgot to serve them at our Fire & Wine holiday meal (oopsie), so I thought a family game night would be the next best thing. I was salivating over the dip recipe Pepperidge Farm included with the crackers.

Ingredients:

2 packages of chive & onion cream cheese

Juice from one lemon

1/4 cup of chipotle peppers in adobe sauce

Directions:

Blend in food processor. Serve chilled with the Pepperidge Farm Baked Naturals Cheese Crisps and fresh veggies. Don’t eat it all in one sitting.

This dip was sooooo good.

I would even spread it on a bagel. Or lick it off my fingers.

The fiance said it was a little spicy and that might be my fault. I may have added a little more than 1/4 cup of the peppers. But I just love adobe sauce in stuff. And an adobe sauce & cream cheese marriage is one I can really get behind. I probably just got a little too excited.

This dip is so simple, but so good. I wanted to be sure to share it before New Year’s Eve, in case you were looking for ideas.

So, wanna know what I’m serving up tomorrow night?

We’re having a “We is po'” New Year’s Eve party. Which means everyone brings their own beverages, and we’ll provide snacks and a champagne toast. In keeping with the theme, I picked three appetizers that were all under $1 per serving.

Sausage Rolls

Cheese and Guinness Spread

Spicy Black Bean Hummus

I’m really excited about my menu. It’s just a few snacks, but dippy enough to keep me my guests happy. And, really, you just can’t go wrong with savory sausage rolls. I just hope there are some left for everyone else.

Happy New Year!
