Football Food: Man Dip!

I had a few friends over to watch the Cowboys game last weekend.  It was a last minute decision, so I did not have time to make my standard football food of crock-pot chili.  Due to the time constraint, I decided to make Debbie’s Man Dip recipe, which seemed quick and simple.  I had heard that that this dip would attract men, like bees to honey, but was not so sure.
It is not a ‘pretty’ dip, but the rumor was true…men love it!  I think it is the combination of the spicy/meaty/creamy goodness, plus eating with their hands that they love so much.  I did not waste any time on the presentation, instead going with Rosie O’Donnell’s out of the bag party trick.


Football Food: Man Dip


(2) 8-oz blocks cream cheese

1 roll Jimmy Dean hot sausage

(1) 10-oz can Rotel (drain half liquid from can)

1 bag Fritos Scoops (family size)


  1. Brown sausage and put in bowl with cream cheese and Rotel.
  2. Stir well and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
  3. Serve with Fritos Scoops.
  4. Stand back and watch the men rush in....


Note: This Man Dip seems to have the same ‘bees to honey’ affect on pregnant women!
