Party Dips and Beer Bread!

We have been so busy lately! Yesterday was 2 of my boys birthday party. I made a couple of dips for everyone to enjoy. I also made a bread to dip for one of them. I love them!

The Menu:
Spinach Dip
Hot Chicken Wing Dip
Beer Batter Bread

The Origional Recipe:
This Spinach dip is off of the back of Knorrs vegetable soup recipe.

Knorr Spinach Dip

1 package (10 oz.) baby spinach, chopped or 1 package (10 oz.) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1 container (16 oz.) sour cream
1 cup Hellmann's® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise
1 package Knorr® Vegetable recipe mix
1 can (8 oz.) water chestnuts, drained and chopped (optional)
3 green onions, chopped (optional)

Everyone loves our dip! Here's how we make it:
Combine all ingredients and chill about 2 hours. Serve with your favorite dippers to your favorite people.
A new serving idea: Hollow out cucumber slices and cherry tomatoes. Fill vegetables with Knorr Spinach Dip and garnish with a sprig of dill.
MAKES 4 cups dip

The Origional Recipe:
I got this recipe off of Babycenter. You can also buy the premade package stuff from Tastefully Simple. I served this with the Spinach Dip

Beer Bread

3 cups Self rising flour
1/2 cups Sugar
12 oz. Beer at room temperature (non light beer is best)
1 tbls melted butter

Mix together and bake at 350 for one hour. Makes one loaf.

Cook's Notes
make sure beer is room temperature

The Origional Recipe:
I got this recipe off of my stepsister, but it is all over the internet. She got it out of a cookbook.

Hot Chicken Wing Dip

2 cans chunk chicken, drained
1/2 cup Franks red hot sauce
1 block cream cheese
1 cup Ranch dressing
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Mix first 4 ingredients together, add shredded cheddar on top. Bake 350 until melted and bubbly. Serve with Club crackers or tortilla chips
