I said to my husband this weekend, “Well at least now that the Patriot’s aren’t in the SuperBowl, it’ll just be easier to relax and enjoy the snacks, and not be stressed out about them winning” — word of advice: don’t say this to a still-grieving Patriot’s fan. The truth is that regardless of the outcome, I never would have been stressed about the game, and would have been 100% focused on the snacks, because I’m a girl with priorities. In preparation for the big game, I tackled a spin on one of my favorite party-food staples: onion dip! I made my own and used caramelized shallots and leeks in lieu of the traditional onion flavor, topped with tons of fresh herbs and served with flavorful Food Should Taste Good Blue Corn Tortilla Chips (which are all-natural and gluten-free, so it’s like I’ve helped you make a healthy SuperBowl snack, right?). It’s going to a mainstay for Sunday football watching in the future.
- 2 Leeks
- 2 Large shallots
- 1 Clove of garlic
- 2 Cups of sour cream
- 2 Tbsp of fresh dill
- 3 Tbsp of fresh chives
- 1 Tsp of garlic powder
- 1 tsp of onion powder
- Salt and Pepper
- Thinly slice the light green part of the leeks, and thinly slice the two shallots.
- Cook over medium heat with a very small amount of olive oil for 7-8 minutes.
- Add a finely minced clove of garlic and cook for another 1-2 minutes, then remove from heat.
- Once leek and shallot mixture is fully cooled, combine with sour cream, dill, chives, spices and lots of fresh cracked black pepper and salt.
- Refrigerate for at least one hour before serving; pair with Food Should Taste Good Blue Corn Tortilla Chips
