This Green Chile and Garlic Dip brought to you in part by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser to help you make fun tailgate recipes and bring you easy clean up ideas! As always, the recipe and opinions in this post are my own. #GameTimeClean #CollectiveBias
One of our favorite past-times is tailgating, whether it's before a football game or after one of Joe's old softball games. And, of course, one of the things I am always in charge of is bringing food. While I love to bring desserts, I am sharing with you one of our favorite recipes that I love to make. While I've done several different versions, of this recipe, but this particular recipe has managed to be one of our favorites! It's creamy, smoky, a little spicy, with a hint of garlic!
The last time I made this dip, I used fresh green chiles that I just bought that morning. I bought an entire sack of chile and placed it on the counter when I got home so that I could peel and seed them. The natural juices leaked through the two bags the chiles were in and made an incredible pool all over my counter and managed to spill onto my just cleaned floor! I had just purchased Viva® Vantage® Towels at Walmart that morning as well, and they made the cleanup of this hot mess (pun intended) all the more easy. These towels are very durable and are fiber-packed which help clean up some of the toughest messes. When I was cleaning up my chile mess, the towels did not break but soaked up the chile juice much like a cloth and it didn't tear! See evidence of the mess below... ugh.
This recipe is incredibly easy to make. It only uses five ingredients and only takes a couple of minutes to put the ingredients together before you bake it. I usually bake this right before I leave, then cover it with aluminum foil and place it in a carrier-- that way it is fresh and piping hot when we arrive! Sometimes I'll prepare the dip, then place it in the refrigerator instead of baking it; then I'll bake it the next day before our event (this may take about 5-10 more minutes to bake).
This dip is gluten free! For your gluten free guests, I like to serve with crinkle potato chips, but can still serve this with gluten free crackers or regular crackers for your guests if you're not serving gluten-free guests.
As an added bonus, you can try these Viva® Vantage® towels towels with this coupon! It will help you save $1.00 on a 6 or 12 pack of Viva® Vantage® towels.
So, tell me, what are your favorite tailgating recipes???
