Satisfy your comfort cravings during football season with this delicious game day jalapeño cheddar dip.
I’ve been thinking about my favorite ooey-gooey cheesy snacks. You know, the ones I look forward to eating while watching the Seahawks play (because I don’t care at all about any other pro football team, even when they aren’t playing that well). They definitely include mozzarella sticks (totally my favorite treat as a kid), good queso dip, and any other cheesy dip. I’ve tried to make mozzarella sticks a few times (failing miserably each time), and the frozen ones just taste great. So that’s off the homemade game day table.
So it was on to a cheesy dip. In efforts to make a traditional cheesy dip healthier for game day, I substituted the cream cheese for pureed cauliflower and it is……awesome! Hence the Jalapeño Cheddar Dip.
Since the only thing in football I care about are the Seahawks, a blue and green theme was a must! So we’ve got blue corn chips, jalapeños, and spinach.
Lighten up your favorite game day snacks with this healthier and veggie filled jalapeno cheddar dip. It's full of nutrients, spice, and cheesy goodness. Dip your favorite chips or vegetables into this cheesy, creamy, and spicy dip. It's a touchdown of a dip.
