So, you’re hosting a game-watching party at your house now that football season has arrived. Or maybe someone has invited you to their place for a game-watching party and you’re looking for something to bring.

This is my wife’s take on what has become a popular dip recipe for a crowd. It will take you about 10 minutes to prepare, and 30 minutes to cook.

Stacey Little and wife, Heather, for whom the recipe is named. (Shorelines)
