Satisfy your comfort cravings during football season with this delicious game day jalapeño cheddar dip. 

I was thinking of my favorite cheesy snacks. They include mozzarella sticks and spinach artichoke dip. Honestly, I tried to bake the mozzarella sticks and failed miserably, plus the sharpness was a bit too much for me. Lame huh?!

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.

you can adjust the amount of jalapeno added to your desired spiciness. Canned jalapenos work well too.
