Recipes of the week: Super Bowl snacks

A few weeks back, Laura from Clinton asked something we’ve all been thinking: What’s the best dip to make for a Super Bowl party?

Joanne from Blissfield, Mich., sent in a recipe for cheesy beer dip. She says the beer adds a unique flavor.

Dave from Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., always makes his taco dip for a snack when watching the Super Bowl.

Cheryl from Coldwater, Mich., serves her broccoli dip with crusty French bread cubes.
