In a horseback ceremony, my grandson, Larry Lyons, married his bride, Heidi. This exquisite dip, suggested by Heidi's grandma, Phyllis Kackley, is creamy and delicious. It looks fancy, but is easy to make.
After trying to create a Mexican soup, I ended up with this outstanding dip that eats like a meal. My husband and two young children love it! Now it's popular for football game days or family gatherings. —Sandra Fick, Lincoln, Nebraska
This thick fondue originated in my kitchen when I didn't have all of the ingredients I needed to make the recipe I initially planned to prepare. Served with bread cubes, it has since become a staple, particularly while we watch football games on television.

These baked wedges, seasoned with Parmesan cheese and served with a sour cream dip, make a nice alternative to french fries or baked potatoes. They go great with grilled steak, but my family enjoys them as snacks, too.

This creamy dip is a favorite of Mary Spencer's and her family in Waukesha, Wisconsin. "My sister, Teresa, got this recipe from a friend and she passed it along," Mary notes. "It's loaded with cheese, artichokes and just the right amount of jalapenos for a crowd-pleasing flavor.”
