Fall means football and gatherings full of fun so appetizers without a lot of work are essential for game day fun. The end zone cheese dip recipe is one we have made so many times as it is a favorite of family and friends.

The dip can last for a few hours on low or a warm setting giving you plenty of time to enjoy tailgaiting. Be careful to watch it though after a couple hours the dip can start to burn.
