BuzzFeed’s Big Dipper

Fact: I’ve never watched the Super Bowl. Generally I’m no big fan of ball sports in general, but few pique my interest less than football. So on that winter evening every year when many folks are glued to the television, I have a tradition of my own: beeline for any of the restaurants in my Brooklyn neighborhood known for their ridiculous wait times, procure a table immediately, and experience my own touchdown-like jubilation. But what I do regretfully miss out on because of my anti-football stance is the glorious bounty that is the game day app spread, and considering my intense fandom of all things dip-py, it’s definitely a loss. A loss emphasized by all the food world press devoted to game day recipe ideas in the weeks leading up to Super Bowl Sunday. This year, if there were an MVP award for most over-the-top dip idea, it would go to BuzzFeed and their 47-layer dip. Yup, 47 layers for Super Bowl 47. The behemoth of a dip with everything from cornbread to pickled okra to mac and cheese to chicken nuggets designed and built by BuzzFeed associate food editor Rachel Sanders is like nothing this dip fan has ever seen. Behold the dip-building process, massive grocery list and prep instruction here. FIORELLA V.
