Super Bowl Dip-off

By Adam Unger

I’m having a party at my apartment for the Super Bowl, and a friend of mine suggested I make it a potluck. I loved the idea, it means less work. I only need to cook one thing.

I’m planning on making my mom’s Spinach Artichoke Dip, and my girlfriend, Kass, is making her famous Buffalo Chicken Dip. Kass had the idea to have a competition. Whichever dip will be devoured the fastest will be the winner. So that I have any chance at winning, I’m adding bacon to my recipe.

Game on.  Oh, and f the Patriots.
