Trader Joe’s Recipe: 2-Ingredient Chili Cheese Dip
Wanna make some kids really happy? Have a couple of bucks to spare? I have a proposition for you. I’ll trade you this super easy, football-worthy chili cheese dip recipe for a library book. Here’s what I mean:
As many of you know, I’m a teacher in addition to writing Willow Bird Baking.
My 7th grade students are choosing books from our classroom library tomorrow. The problem? Our library is small. These kids are excited about books and I want them to have amazing choices so that excitement grows!
If you have a few bucks to spare to offer a kid a good book, this Amazon wishlist includes a bunch of books I’d love for them to have access to. Both new and gently used books work great for us!
Have a favorite book from when you were in middle school? Even if it’s not on our wishlist, trust me, we’d love it! Our mailing address at school is Julie Ruble / 1949 Discovery Falls Drive / Chula Vista, CA 91915. Any book you send us will go straight into our class library with great fanfare!
Now here’s that recipe I promised — such as it is! My Trader Joe’s was sampling this combo the other day and I knew I had to share it with you. It’s just two ingredients from your local Trader Joe’s, two minutes in the microwave, and bam! Perfect football snack. Enjoy it with their new cornbread crisps, which are slightly sweet just like Southern cornbread!
