Every Thanksgiving and Christmas, my mother makes two different kinds of dip. One is an onion dip, made by combining a tub of sour cream and a packet of onion soup mix. The other is a beef dip which I think is just warm pastrami all chopped up and combined with uh, another tub of sour cream? Whatever it is, it’s sheer insanely delicious meat-magic for your insides. My mom makes them because her mom used to make them.

She serves the onion one with ridged potato chips and the beef one with Fritos (I KNOW RIGHT?), though I can attest that, in a pinch, chips are not required to enjoy them. She got the recipes from her mom, who also made both dips for the holidays. That’s right — it’s a family dipdition, sat-fat style. Zero shame in that game. Keep reading »

Comfort Food Hall Of Fame: 10 Brag-Worthy Chili Recipes

As I mentioned in our “Foods That Make Us Angry” slideshow, it seems to be human nature to brag excessively whenever you make a pot of chili. As annoyed as it makes me to listen to someone talk for 15 minutes about the spicy 7-bean mixture they’ve got simmering on the stove, I try to be patient, because lord knows I’ve chili-bragged on numerous occasions, and you know what? Sometimes a chili brag is  totally warranted. For example, in the case of these 10 chili recipes, all of which look delicious enough to brag about for daaaayyyyys.
