As I talked about in my post yesterday on Crock Pot Honey Roasted Garlic & Herb Chicken , Mike and I organized a couples indoor golf tournament this past Saturday that we called The Cupid Scramble. As many of you already know, we are avid golfers. Now, mind you, avid does not mean good. Mike is very good and carries a pretty low handicap, sometimes as low as a 2 or 3. I didn’t start golfing until after we were married and despite putting in lots of time, my handicap never gets much under the lower 20s and every once in a while I might sneak down to a 19. But I still love it and do it every chance I get!
Throughout the winter we like to do an indoor golf league every Wednesday (which has led to having Crock Pot Wednesdays 🙂 ) just to keep swinging. We also like the competitive side of it. We are a team and play a handicapped best shot against other teams of two. For those of you that have never been in an interactive indoor golf facility it’s basically a video game where you get to use your real clubs and golf ball. There is a big screen that displays famous golf courses (you choose which course you play) and you hit, chip, or putt your ball into the screen and then it reads what you have done and shows where the ball goes. It really is fun and we’re lucky enough to have a facility like this in Mason City to get us through the long, cold winters. As I type this we have yet another blizzard blowing through outside 😦 Will the winter of 2014 ever end??!!
Anyway, we thought it would be fun to organize a couples golf tournament the weekend of Valentine’s Day. We had a couple of fun pin prizes for Closest to the Pin and Longest Putt which were Valentine’s glasses with a shot of Kinky Liqueur and Sierra Mist – A Peep Martini. Even though I didn’t win one of these prizes, I took a little sip of one as I mixed them up for the winners (I”m thinking if I were a real bartender I wouldn’t get away with that 🙂 ) and they were really good!
We all had plans to go out for dinner together after the tournament but decided we would bring some munchies to snack on while we were playing. One of my favorite things to make for something like this or any tailgating party we go to is dip. My two favorite dips to make are Buffalo Chicken Dip and the dip that I decided to make for this particular day – Chicken Fajita Dip. They are always a hit and so easy! Just throw all the ingredients in a crock pot, stir occasionally, and 3-4 hours later they’re done!
Give this recipe a try over the weekend. Serve with your favorite chips! You’ll be happy you gave this easy, no fuss recipe a try!
Here’s what you’ll need on your grocery list:
**I make this recipe in my small crock pot. I’m not sure of the exact size but there is a picture below…maybe someone can help me out on what size it would be. I always call it my dip or little smokies crock pot 🙂 This always seems to be the perfect size for a crowd of 10-16, especially if there are going to be other munchies there. I find its easy to use the leftover ingredients in other recipes. You could always double this recipe, make it in a larger crock pot and freeze what’s left.**
2 (10 oz) cans Chunk White Chicken Breast in Water, drained
1 lb Mild Mexican Velveeta Cheese
4 oz Cream Cheese
1/2 of a 16 oz can Refried Beans
1/2 of a 1.25 oz package of Fajita Seasoning Mix
1/2 cup Salsa
1/2 cup Milk
Take all of you’re ingredients and add to the crock pot in the order listed. I always add the chicken first and then use a fork to shred the chunks and spread around the bottom of the crock pot.
Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours. When I haven’t had as much time, I’ve turned it up to high and have gotten it done in as little as 2 hours.
Serve with your favorite chips and enjoy!
We had 16 people at this tournament and this was just enough. Of course, we had other munchies there as well. Unfortunately, Mike and I didn’t win this time…but we did tie for second 🙂 Now if we could just get this winter to end so we could finally hit the green fairways outside…
