Cranberry Barbecue Ribs and BLT Dip

Cranberry barbecue ribs are a succulent lip smacking delight for an appetizer
Sticky sweet and tangy ribs

Someone recently asked for my Super bowl snack go tos, so I didn’t miss a beat! Ribs, especially cranberry barbecue ribs, and BLT dip have long been favorites to appear on the SB spread. I have always preferred this with a side of Tom Brady, and even though he is no longer the Patriots quarterback, we will still be having a serving of TB!! Just a different color jersey!!
Succulent ribs in luscious cranberry sauce, that are finger licking good, can be made in the slow cooker if you are preparing for a larger spread. this leaves you with less to prepare closer to the game. They are hot competition for the half time show!!! So is this BLT dip! Because this is a fast and easy to prepare dip that is truly delectable, it will soon become your favorite too!

WINE PAIRING: I usually have a cold bottle or four of Sam Adams beer to get me through the excitement of the game, but if I open wine, it will be a Californian Chardonnay!!!
