Football Bites

The problem with healthy food is that some of it tastes gross. Yup, that’s the truth. So, if I am going to make something healthy, you darn well know I refuse to publish the recipe unless it tastes good too.

 

I wanted to make an appetizer that’s football-themed, but easy to put together, even for a beginner cook. It’s healthy to boot and doesn’t taste icky! That way I can eat my emotions through all of the Goodell headaches this season.

 

The layered dip and football bites are perfect to use to with Simply 7 snacks. For the layered Tex-Mex dip, go with a flat chip, such as  Simply 7’s Quinoa, Veggie, Lentil, and Kale chips. For the football bites, stick with the Hummus Chips to make a very football-shaped finger food.

 

I picked Simply 7 because they are tasty, but still clean, gluten-free, and have no artificial colors or flavors. So they don’t make me feel gross but they also don’t taste gross. Maybe the Rams need to try these snacks out?

If you want to just make a layered dip, get yourself a nice glass bowl. To boost the flavor in your dip, I suggest mixing in a few key ingredients into some of the layers. scoop refried beans into a glass bowl. Use enchilada sauce and stir into the refried beans. A spicy enchilada sauce, or hot sauce added to the enchilada sauce tastes great. Just add to taste.

 

Scoop refried beans into bottom of bowl and spread evenly. Next, spoon in guacamole and cover the beans. You want the guacamole to stay within the layers, so as to protect it from oxidising due to air exposure.

 

Now mix sour cream or greek yogurt with chopped cilantro and either garlic powder or onion powder to taste. Scoop on top of guacamole and spread.

Top dip with sliced cherry tomatoes, green onion, and avocado pieces. Serve with Simply 7 Snacks. Super easy and you can make ahead of time!

 

For the football bites, grab some Simply 7 Hummus chips.I used the Roasted Garlic flavor for this recipe, but you can pick any flavor you’d like. Fill one plastic sandwich bag with guacamole. Snip one corner. Repeat with guacamole in a separate bag. Do the same with sour cream, but snip a much smaller corner so that it pipes out a thin line.

Fill hummus chips with a tiny bit of pico de gallo. Cover with a thin layer of guacamole by piping it out of the bag. Using smooth guacamole works best. Now, pipe to cover guacamole with refried beans. Top with a long line of sour cream on top, then a few short perpendicular lines to make the football strings. Sit on top of a sliced olive to prevent football bites from falling over.
