Football games are the social scene of winter weekends, but tired dips need to be swapped out for something new, which makes them the perfect choice for this week's SWAT (Sharing With A Theme).

We put the Culinary Content Network to the test to come up with a few of their favorite dip recipes, and here are some of the highlights: 

  • Michelle of The Complete Savorist brings us a quick queso dip without the usual brick of cheese product.
  • Mary of Vindulge brings us a new use for leftover Thanksgiving turkey with a smoked buffalo turkey dip.
  • This week's winner comes from Lisa of Creole Contessa. This extra cheesy cheeseburger dip is all of the fun of burgers with none of the bun.

All of the recipes featured can be made at home for about $20 or less, excluding the cost of small amounts of basic ingredients such as butter, oil, flour, sugar, salt, pepper, and other dried herbs and spices.
