The Playoffs are in full swing and we're beginning to wind down to the Super Bowl. Right now it's anyone's guess who is going to make it to the Big Game. The way things are going, it might be which 2 teams are the healthiest at the end. Even though my team went belly up before the season ended, I still have rooting interest in some the the teams left. It's all good.
Today we have a guest recipe, courtesy of my krazee kuzin Dianne. Last weekend she brought over an awesome Chipotle Dip that she created herself. The flavor was fresh and vibrant. I want to share it with you because it's another good recipe for your Super Bowl party - or any time for that matter. I would recommend making it either a day ahead or at least a few hours ahead because it needs a little time for the flavors to really develop. But try to check it out, it's really good...
16 oz container sour cream
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tbs chipotle powder
1 tsp onion powder
2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tbs fresh lime juice
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl and let sit in fridge for a few hours, or preferably overnight.
Serve with chips, pretzels.
Big Game Party Tips & Tricks:
By now you should have gotten your invites out. This way your guests have enough time to respond and you'll be able to shop accordingly. Now is a good time to start hitting the party stores to pick up paper goods and any themed decorations that you might want to display around the house the day of the party. This is also a good time to start stocking up on soda, beer, water. The supermarkets are running sales right now, so take advantage of the good prices. This is also a good time to start making a few items that you can freeze ahead (wings, meatballs,...). The Big Game is only 3 weeks away, so now is a good time to start prepping a few freezable dishes now so that all you have to do the day of the party it to heat them up.
So there you have it! Enjoy the playoffs this weekend and I will see you next weekend!
Keep on Homegating!
