A friend of mine came up with a great idea (Stan Russo you're so savvy) that he incorporated into a little get together at his place over the summer...a dip contest! Everyone had to bring a homemade dip that would be rated first by the flavor and second by the name. It is engaging, brings on a lot of laughs (some of the names were hilarious and at times downright offensive lol) and some of the dips were very creative! This can be an awesome way to spice up the upcoming Superbowl festivities! Which is really important cause the NY Giants are going to kick some major ass this Sunday!
Once everybody has tasted all of the dips, place an empty bowl on the table and have each guest write the name of their favorite dip on a piece of paper (you can't vote for your own), placing it into the bowl. Have the guests gather around the table as the host of the party announces the nominees and finally...the winner!
|"Manna Bananas" with fresh mango, bananas and cilantro|
|"The Black Eyed Peas" a salsa of black eyed peas with diced roasted peppers, tomatoes, cilantro, red onion and lime juice|
|"The Red Hot Mexican!" puree of tomato, red onion, cilantro, jalapenos peppers and lime juice|
