Philly Cheese Steak Dip

Rating: 4.5 stars 19
This easy-to-make hot dip would make a handsome addition to your snack table for the Big Game. Like all great party foods, it's wonderful hot, warm, room temp, and, I've heard from a reliable source, even delicious cold. Serve alongside sliced baguette. Keep it hot and fresh for guests by baking it in 2 batches, or feel free to do this all at once in a 9x13-inch baking dish.

Homemade Ranch Mix

Rating: 5 stars 1
This is a good alternative to the packages you buy in the store. There is no MSG and you control the salt and spices according to your taste. This mix should be refrigerated if made ahead due to the buttermilk powder. Use nonfat dry milk as a shelf stable alternative.

Chef John's Refried Beans

Rating: 5 stars 80
I don't think I would ever sit down to eat just a bowl of refried beans, but they make everything they're served on, with, or in, infinitely better. Just as long as you use lard to make them.
