Whether you get your friends together for a viewing party, or just use the game as an excuse to watch hilarious commercials for 5 hours on Sunday…there is usually food to accompany the event.
Chips, sandwiches, beer, and so many different types of dips. So Yesterday Shawn, Rob and I made our own specialty dips and got the office to rate them.
Shawn made salsa, Rob made a mex dip and I made a 7 layer Greek dip.
I think the staff was more excited about the prospect of free food than the rating system, and I’m not just saying that because I lost…Okay maybe I’m a little bitter.
Rob’s mexi dip took first place, it had refried beans, taco beef, cheese, sour cream, and chives…I think. He said he wouldn’t give away the recipe.
Shawn’s salsa came in second place, and I have to admit, it was really good. He did agree to share the recipe:
- 1 small white onion
- 6 – 7 ripe Roma tomatoes
- 1 mini cucumber
- 1 jalapeño pepper (seeded)
- 1 handful of fresh cilantro
- 1 capful apple cider vinegar
- Juice of one lime
- Pink Himalayan salt to taste
- Hummus (store bought or home-made)
- Tzatziki (store bought or home-made)
- 2 tbsp red onion, minced
- 1 cup English cucumber (about ½ large), ½-inch dice
- 1 cup Roma tomato, seeded, ½-inch dice
- 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
- 1/4 cup Kalamata olives, sliced
Directions: In an 8”x8” or 7″ x 11″glass dish, layer the hummus, tzatziki , red onion, cucumber, tomatoes, feta and olives. Serve with whole grain pita chips or baked corn chips.
