Finally fall is in the air! Okay, so maybe not temperature wise, but more importantly…football season! In just over a week football season will be starting in full-force, and with that comes tailgates, parties, and SNACKING!
And just in the knick of time, Green Giant has released a great (read: delicious) line of veggie snacks so you don’t have to feel so guilty about the munching–and the folks at Green Giant were generous enough to send me some to try out (and trust me, my enthusiasm in this post is 100% real)! Since no tailgate party is complete without something to dip all of your snacks in, I’ve also included a recipe for my Touch-of-Mustard Honey Dip!
If your house is anything like mine, chips are a staple in the pantry. Fortunately, I also have the world’s best husband who loves vegetables, so for us the Green Giant Veggie Snacks were a no-brainer. Not convinced? You should be! With whole grain and real vegetables, these chips are surprisingly delicious and they really are full of Giant Flavor! It will change your view on the ol’ Green Giant–don’t think cans of corn or bags of broccoli–think of a satisfying snack time! I guarantee that if you set these out at your next tailgate, they will be devoured in minutes and your friends will never know that they just snacked on something healthy!
I decided to set out a pre-football season spread last night featuring these fab chips. Pictured above are the Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips in Garden Ranch. They may look like another snack food that you’re familiar with, but they’re actually better! With natural flavors and real vegetables, your mouth, your body, and your conscience will thank you.
Not to be outdone by the Garden Ranch, these Barbecue flavored Multi-Grain Sweet Potato chips are nothing less than amazing. I love barbecue chips, and I love sweet potatoes and sweet potato chips. I would be lying, though, if I didn’t admit that I was hesitant when it came to the two being combined. One bite and the hesitation disappeared! They are probably the best barbecue chips I’ve ever had, and that is the complete, total, and unbiased truth! I actually wish that I could bottle that barbecue flavor and cook with it! (Hmm…maybe some fried chicken with breading made from these bad boys? Also a great tailgating option…)
However, like I said before, no tailgate or fall party is complete without something to dip all of your munchies in. I decided to whip up a dip that would go well with the unique flavor of the Barbecue Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips. Obviously salsa was out of the question, as were ideas like French Onion. I didn’t want to do barbecue sauce and mask the already great-flavor, so I decided to go with something that would compliment it…honey…and some mustard. But this is no ordinary honey mustard (because I’m not a big fan), the ratios are flipped making this a honey dip with some mustard added. And the results are fabulous, if I do say so myself! Here’s the recipe:
A Touch-of-Mustard Honey Dip
- 1/4 Cup Honey
- 2 Tbsp. Spicy Brown Mustard (more or less to taste)
- 1/4 tsp. Onion Powder
- 1/4 tsp. Salt
- Place all ingredients in a small bowl.
- Mix until combined, stirring out any lumps.
- Serve and enjoy!
You really can’t get much easier than that! Plus it’s really delicious. It’s thinner than some dips, so it will go a long way with the Green Giant Veggie Snacks, or any other snacks you bring to the table!
