Game Day Dips Recipe Collage

This time of year, college football runs this town.

And I mean runs. this. town.

I don’t think we’ve had a single outing where football hasn’t come up so far. While football talk is beyond expected at bars and parties, we weren’t quite expecting the topic to come up [quite heatedly!] at hardware stores, Target, and even my own driveway. Our new neighbors were quick to assess our team status and classify us friends or college football frenemies.

It’s a thing.

One thing everyone can agree on, is the awesomeness of a good dip! An addictive spread can unite even the fiercest of rivals, and these recipes are up for the challenge! With vegan, vegetarian, and t-rex options, there’s a dip for everyone on this list!
