SNACKS! Yes, Superbowl Sunday is one of the most SNACKTACULAR days and there is nothing I love more then a reason to get your friends & fam together with bowls of cold creamy (and sometimes hot) dips, and all of the Crunchy things to dip in them! I may not follow football…. but aside from eating all the foods, I’m just really excited for the Lady Gaga concert happening on Sunday… just sayin 😉
As I always say, balance is key and food denial is not the answer, so let’s keep it real and of course TASTY!
If you know me, I have a savory palate. Give me all the chips and dip!!! I will take chips over cake any day! So as I look to some of my guilty pleasures and favorites, here are some things I will be serving up this Super Bowl Sunday – nothing fancy just tasty, simple and healthy!
Generally when I think of sporting events, I think of fried foods….one of my guilty pleasures is Onion Rings! I think the key is to keep them crunchy, and my preference is to use Panko instead of breadcrumbs, making them extra crispy – add any extra seasonings you like to give it an extra kick…. still contemplating what to add to today’s batch!
Now you know the Avocado and I have a love affair ❤ ❤ ❤ – so there is no question there will be Guacamole! What is not to love about this delectable dip??? Although higher in calories, this dip is packed with lots of nutrients! I like to add tomato, red onion, garlic, jalapeno and if I want a little extra spice sometimes a little Cayenne!
Would love to know – what do you put in your Guacamole???
Speaking of Dips, I found some inspiration and put a twist on this Ranch Recipe a while back and will be sure to put this out as well! Ranch Dip is a bit of a staple. From Veg, to chips, heck even to wings it is versatile fave goes well with all things crunchy! I’ll be putting out some Veg with the Chips but as a side note, this universal dip is also great as a salad dressing! All you need is Greek Yogurt (suggest 2% but you can still use the nonfat and it is good too!), Olive oil, garlic and Dill (I use dried – it’s easier, but if you have fresh all the power to you!) A little parmesan can be added, but I have done without and it comes out just as good, so this is completely up to you! The dip is extra thick and creamy, and although you can make this in a pinch, it is great if you make it a little ahead of time to let the flavors marinate!
Keep it Tasty!
