Spice up your game day chips with this addictive dip - Photos by Pepper

Before you ask who the dip was that named this dip, there's a story behind it. I personally don't remember this, but apparently when I was 3 years old, my Dad came up with a new spicy cheese dip and brought it to a potluck. Of course, from a very young age I always loved hot stuff so I got my tiny sausage fingers on that dip and began eating it. Very soon I had tears streaming down my face from the heat and a concerned family friend asked what I was doing. It was at that point I was able to spit out 3 words, "Eat.....Dip.....Hot!", and then I went back to eating it. At that point everyone apparently had a big laugh at my discomfort and my Dad's Legendary cheese dip came to be known as Eat. Dip. Hot. I have since adapted the recipe to use Hoff Sauce for your enjoyment. Thanks Dad, I mean, Original Hoff.


VERY IMPORTANT: While this is a very simple recipe, any time you introduce vinegar into dairy, you risk curdling. In order to avoid curdled cheese dip, make sure you follow these measurements to a T, including using whole milk and thick american cheese.

3/4 Cup whole milk
24 Slices deli style american cheese (The thicker slices that aren't individually wrapped)
1 tsp Garlic powder
1/4 Cup Hoff Sauce
2 Tbls White vinegar

Place milk and cheese slices in a microwave safe dish and microwave on high for 90 seconds. Take out and stir. Repeat heating for 90 seconds and stirring until it is well mixed and you have a thick dip. Add garlic powder. While stirring, slowly add in the Hoff Sauce and vinegar until it is completely incorporated. Serve as a dip for tortilla chips or drizzle on top of kettle chips (my personal favorite).

Serves 4 to 12 depending on how they roll
