My weekends are currently based around football schedules but it's all good because that means football food! Who doesn't love that?! I love to make the classics but I also like to put a little twist on them. These recipes will not disappoint!

Mexican Street Corn Dip

Ingredients:

2 blocks (16oz) of low fat cream cheese-softened

1/2 cup sour cream

2 cloves of garlic-minced

2 T hot sauce

1 lime-juiced

2 cups of shredded colby jack cheese

3 ears of corn-kernels (could also use 2 cans of corn)

1 cup of cotija cheese-crumbled

1 jalapeño- chopped (leave in seeds for extra spice)

2 T red onion- chopped

2 T fresh cilantro- chopped

Tortilla chips for dipping

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Put the cream cheese, sour cream, garlic, hot sauce, lime juice and 1 cup of shredded cheese into a blender. Pulse until combined.

Cut the kernels off of the ears of corn and place into a bowl.

Add the mixture from the blender, remaining 1 cup of cheese, cotija, jalapeño, and red onion to the bowl and mix until combined.

Pour mixture into a baking dish and bake for 20 minutes or until the cheese is hot and bubbling.

Pigs in a Blanket with a Twist

Ingredients:

2 cans of crescent roll dough

1 pack of uncured beef hot dogs (I buy Applegate organic ones)

4 T "Everything Bagel" seasoning from Trader Joe's

Dijon mustard and ketchup for dipping

Directions:

Lay the crescent roll dough out on top of parchment paper on any flat surface.

Press the ridges of the dough together so that it forms one continuous sheet.

Use a knife to cut the dough into 1.5 inch wide strips.

Cut the hot dogs into 2 inch long cubes.

Roll the hot dog cubes into the crescent roll dough.

Top each piece with a sprinkle of "Everything Bagel" seasoning.

Bake according to directions on dough packaging. 

Serve hot with dijon mustard and ketchup for dipping.
