Time for a summertime dip

I'm a huge fan of the Big Mama blog. In her post today, she asked for summer recipes. Since my friends all KNOW I'm quite the Rachel Ray of Corinth .... yeah, right ... I decided to share some DIP recipes. Ya know, food is more fun if you dip it in something before you eat it! I can't take credit for either of these except for the fact I've consumed lots of both. Shellie is a co-worker of mine who likes to cook and is good at it. She likes to share with us, too, which is also good!

Shellie's "You're Gonna Fight Over It" Fruit Dip

1/2 cup of regular sugar

1/2 cup of light brown sugar

1 teaspoon of vanilla

1 block of cream cheese( let it get room temp)

Heath cookie chips( just like choc. chips)

Mix well.

This should be refrigerated, but put it out 15-20 minutes before you're gonna serve it.

This is served best with sliced apples. If you dunk them in Sprite, they won't turn brown so quickly.

Mississippi Caviar (from Shellie, too)

2 cans Rotel

2 cans blackeyed peas (drained)

2 cans shoepeg corn (drained)

1 large bottle Wishbone Italian Dresssing (don't substitute)

Chopped bell pepper

Stir together and serve with tortilla chips.

Yum! My MIL makes a dip similar to the fruit dip, minus the heath chips. I may need to try that one!

Oh the dip recipe - think I could just substitute it for dinner tonight? LOL

Thank you for sharing! These both sound great!
