Bacon Chicken Jalapeno Dip

I’m thinking about enforcing a Mandatory Fun Family Night. We used to have Family Night every Wednesday. Lately, the boys have more school work and activities so we’ve strayed from family night.

Why “Mandatory Fun”? Beeee-cuz, some of us aren’t good losers. Some of us, who shall remain un-named, but are 12 and under, ends up in tears if he doesn’t win. That’s not good odds because they’re 2 under 12 and they both can’t win so every game someone ends up in tears! “Mandatory Fun” equals No Tears!

No Tears Family Night just doesn’t have the same zip as Mandatory Fun Family Night.

I think I’ll serve munchies and finger foods that way we can snack and play.

I made this Bacon Chicken Jalapeno Dip for tailgating. It as a big hit! The boys will enjoy it, it has some of their favorite flavors and it shouldn’t cause tears.

Of course, if you don’t have Family Fun Night, you can still enjoy this appetizer. Football playoff games or Super Bowl Parties would be the perfect opportunity to make it!
