Healthy Game-Watching Dips

I’ve been ready for some football since the beginning of the summer, and now it’s finally here!  We’ve been going to sooooo many football parties and I’m always at a loss for what I am supposed to eat when there’s nothing but brownies, cookies, hot wings, and soda.  But do not fret my little readers.  We have here two awesome and healthy (and delicious I might add) alternatives to the football munchie woes.  We tried them both with a superb success rate and they are going down in the PGM journal of recipe keepers.

Here they are (excuse the iphone pics)”

Black Bean Dip (from my Fabulous new friend Lissette)

  • 1 can drained black beans
  • 1/2 onion
  • 6-8 sprigs cilantro
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tsp crushed garlic
  • 1/2 tsp herbamere (a spice mix made from veggies found at most health food stores)

Blend and enjoy!

Homemade Salsa (from the gardener out back, who also happens to be my neighbor: The Bestie)

  • 2 tomatillos
  • 3 tomatoes
  • 1/2 a bunch cilantro
  • lime juice
  • 1 jalapeno
  • 1/4 – 1/2 onion
  • pinch of garlic salt
  • pinch of pepper
  • chile powder (optional)

Blend in a food processor.

Here’s a tip from the author:  salsa will taste better if you use a variety of tomatoes, peppers, onions, etc.).  She is right.  It was delish.

Enjoy enjoy
