The NFL football season is officially underway. (It was kinda nice to see the Cowboys beat last year's Super Bowl champs on Wednesday night)!  Don't serve the usually dip, whip up something a little different with help from Taste of Home.  Maybe you should make a double batch!

•1/2 cup sour cream

•1/2 cup mayonnaise

•1/4 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, drained and patted dry

•1/2 teaspoon salt

•1/4 teaspoon pepper

•1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce

•2 green onions, sliced

•Assorted crackers and/or fresh vegetables

DIRECTIONS

•Place the first seven ingredients in a food processor; cover and process until blended. Add green onions; cover and pulse until finely chopped. Serve with crackers and/or vegetables. Yield: 2 cups.
