Come Monday morning we aim our tunnel vision right for Friday night. And tonight is Friday night! Work outside of the home is on hold for two days, school is out and we can kick back and relax. Friday deserves its own food. Something lofty, special, distinct even. When Friday comes I want Friday Night Food, appetizer-ish nibblings to a perfectly grilled steak or mussels with bread for dipping, or marinated shrimp on a bed of linguine, not Tuesday’s or Wednesday’s fare. Macho Nacho Dip qualifies as Friday Night Food in the appetizer-ish nibblings department. It’s creamy, spicy richness on a bed of Tostito Chips® screams, “It’s Friday night!”
Macho Nacho Dip
1 lb sausage regular or hot, browned, drained
1 can Ro*Tel® tomatoes, original, undrained
8 ounces cream cheese
In a large skillet mix all ingredients and cook on medium high until the mixture is creamy and thick. Move to a bowl and serve with Tostito Style Chips® or Frito Scoops®. You may also pour this over a pile of Tostito Chips® and sprinkle with cheese, olives, and jalapeno peppers. Yippee! It’s Friday Night!
Hey there’s more…
How ’bout these to go with your Friday Night Macho Nacho Fest in February on Leap Day.
Blend in blender until slushy, add a little water if needed. Pour into four 16 ounce Solo® plastic cups. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze 24 hours to 6 months. Remove from freezer at least one hour before serving and serve with a straw and a wedge of lime. Or microwave at 20 second increments until slushy. Double or triple the recipe and store in freezer and remove as needed.
Note: For those of you searching Wegman’s right now for canned wine and canned triple sec, wine and triple sec do not come in cans, you are using the limeade can to do the measuring!
