You can never go wrong with tailgate cheese dip. Whatever is the outcome of the game, you’ll remain in a good mood with cheese dip by your side. It’s so easy to prepare. All you need are the following: mayonnaise, cream cheese, Wisconsin’s Best Pepper Jack Cheese, Mild Cheddar Cheese, onions, bacon, and a pack of your favorite crackers.
