Warm Collard & Jalapeno Ranch Dip

Serves 4-6 | Finish in 30 minutes

Transform cut, frozen collards into a warm, delicious, and healthy dip made fabulous with Litehouse Jalapeno Dip, Litehouse Instantly Fresh seasonings, and Litehouse Artisan Blue Cheese. Make a healthy platter for snacking by adding multi-grain chips and finger-sized vegetables.


2 cups vegetable broth,
1 Tbsp. Litehouse Instantly Fresh Red Onion,
1 tsp. Litehouse Instantly Fresh Garlic,
1 10-ounce package chopped collards,
½ cup Litehouse Jalapeno Ranch Dip,
1-2 teaspoons Litehouse Instantly Fresh Jalapenos,
Litehouse Artisan Blue Cheese Center Cut or Litehouse Blue Cheese Crumbles,
4 tsp. breadcrumbs or panko crumbs,


1. Pour vegetable broth into saucepan. Add Litehouse Instantly Fresh Red Onion and Litehouse Instantly Fresh Garlic to broth and allow to rehydrate for 1 minute before adding collards. Cook collards, according to package directions, until done.

2. Drain collards in a colander then transfer greens to a clean, non-textured dishtowel. Roll greens in towel to reduce moisture (which would make the dip too wet).

3. Pre-heat oven to broil. Transfer greens to large glass bowl. Add Litehouse Jalapeno Ranch Dip and Litehouse Instantly Fresh Jalapenos. Stir to mix ingredients.

4. Transfer prepared ingredients to an oven-safe serving bowl or to oven-safe individual serving dishes. Slice Litehouse Artisan Blue Cheese Center Cut in half. Crumble cheese and sprinkle, along with breadcrumbs, on top of the uncooked dip. Put dip under broiler for 1-2 minutes or until the breadcrumbs are toasted and the cheese is melted. Serve with chips and a variety of finger-sized vegetables such as mini carrots and celery sticks.
