Bubbly Baked Tater Tot Popper Dip is a mash-up of two of my favorites, tater tots, and jalapeno popper dip. Perfect for tailgating or family game night.
With the holidays over, it’s time to concentrate on the next major holiday. No, not Valentine’s Day, I mean The Big Football Game early in February.
More families have big game parties than any other TV event all year. More TVs are sold during the weeks leading up to the game and the poor chickens don’t have a chance with all those chicken wings being consumed.
My Bubbly Baked Tater Tot Popper Dip is oozing with warm gooey cheesy potatoes with a nice little kick. Think of it as cheesy fries topped with jalapenos in a single hot bubbly dish. Serve with tortilla chips and enjoy some warm goodness.
