7 Savory Dip Recipes for the Big Game

7 savory dip recipes for the big game

Throwing the perfect game day party may not be as difficult as actually competing in the big game, but it still requires dedication, commitment, and—above all—preparation. After all, a bag of store-brand tortilla chips and a jar of salsa, just isn't going to cut it.

Thankfully, with a little bit of know-how, you’ll be able to throw a bash that will have your guests talking about your party as much as the game. After all, the difference between a party that will go down in the ages, and one that will be forgotten come Monday, is the dip.

Here are a few savory dip recipes that will have your guests scraping the bottom of the bowl between plays, just make sure you provide enough chips to make it through half time.

Dip Recipes  

Mango Salsa


¼ cup cilantro
½ red onion, roughly chopped
1 red pepper, trimmed, seeded and roughly chopped
2 mangoes, peeled and pitted
¼ tsp sea salt
¼ tsp ground cumin


Add ingredients to WildSide+ jar and secure lid. Pulse 4-6 times until chopped and still chunky.  

Dip Recipes

Spicy Sausage Cheese Dip


½ lb spicy turkey sausage
2 Serrano peppers (medium sized, seeded)
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup frozen corn kernels
½ cup sour cream
½ cup mayonnaise
1 tsp garlic powder
½ cup white onions (chopped)
1 pinch ground black pepper
Paprika (for garnish)


  1. In a skillet over medium heat, fry the sausage until it is brown, breaking it apart as it cooks. Once the sausage is browned, remove from heat, and drain any excess grease from the pan. Remove the sausage, and set it aside.
