We are back from our honeymoon in New Orleans! We drank, ate, and walked all the things for 6 days and yet still didn’t do everything we wanted. This is why I prefer to plan vacations at least a little bit but due to planning that thing called a wedding my motivation to do more was severely lacking.

Regardless, it was great to get away and eat whatever I wanted without worrying about an expensive piece of clothing fitting haha.

Now that it’s all over, we are having a hard time getting back into the swing of things. Normal life continued on without us, instead of pausing like it should have we wished it had, and now we are left playing catch up. The one downfall to vacationing but I would rather suffer through it than never travel.

On the plus side, football season has started with means plenty of time sitting on the couch in our future (at least for away games)!

A popular dip I always see at parties, especially those involving football, is buffalo chicken dip. But instead of buffalo sauce, what if I used enchilada sauce and made an enchilada chicken dip instead? It will taste like it’s Mexican cousin that’s what!

The possibilities from there are endless as my brain starts thinking of other sauces I could use but for now, let’s enjoy this hot cheesy goodness. Need more dip ideas? Add my Tennessee Sausage Cheese Dip to your football party menu, too!

To celebrate the arrival of football season and all the fall recipes to come, I joined forces with the group of bloggers listed below in giving away three 6-qt Instant Pots (to 3 different winners)! Find the widget located at the end of this post to enter. I got an Instant Pot as a bridal shower gift and even though I was super excited about it for some reason I have not been motivated to use it, which seems silly since it makes a slow cooker look like work. Any one have a go-to recipe I have to try?
