Friends and family visiting our home know us well enough to expect healthy noshing when they show up. They also know that I’ll try my best to make whatever they eat delicious. Super Bowl Sunday snacking will be no exception: whole-wheat chips and vegetables for dipping paired with Warm Collard & Jalapeno Ranch Dip. An exciting football game and the spiciness of jalapeno are well-suited to the adrenalin that will have football fans leaping out of their seats. Meanwhile, it does my heart good to see friends and family getting several servings of vegetables during near-compulsive game-day snacking.
Dips are easy to make and are a familiar favorite for many. Greens, such as collards, turnips, and kale, work well as dip ingredients. Combined with Litehouse Jalapeno Ranch Dip (or any of the Ranch dips from Litehouse). Besides, spinach dip is already a madly popular dip, and my guests just dig in without thinking. Then, the double take and inevitable question: “Are there collard greens in this dip?”
Squeezed Collard Greens
Make this dip easy to prepare with chopped, frozen greens of your choice, and season the greens with Litehouse Instantly Fresh Red Onion and Litehouse Instantly Fresh Garlic. These freeze-dried aromatics will rehydrate quickly (I add the seasonings to the greens and vegetable broth before cooking). What makes this dip so fabulous is the mild heat from the Litehouse Jalapeno Ranch Dip. Heighten this heat as much or as little as you please with Litehouse Instantly Fresh Jalapenos. When serving guests, I am generally conservative about adding jalapenos and other spicy seasonings, preferring to allow guests to add more heat if they want it.
Whole-grain chips and crunchy vegetables, such as carrots and celery, are piled on serving platters to accompany the dip as soon as I remove it from the broiler, hot and bubbly with melted cheese from the Litehouse Blue Cheese Center Cut. If you are planning a spread for the Super-Bowl, delight your guests with healthy and delicious finger foods and snacks made fabulous with Litehouse Products.
