This creamy and versatile Whipped Goat Cheese is everything you didn’t know you wanted! We first had whipped goat cheese at a restaurant with a little honey drizzled on top and were instantly hooked. I knew I had to remake it ASAP, especially for game day app! Here we are, Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl to play the Philadelphia Eagles and what better way to celebrate than with a delicious app. Clearly a glass of wine or bottle of beer to go right along with it because it is a celebration after all!Read more: Whipped Goat Cheese CONTINUE READING

Spinach Poblano Dip
If you like traditional spinach artichoke dip then you’re going to love this spin on the classic! This Spinach Poblano Dip is full of flavor and poblano peppers are subbed for the artichoke for an extra little something. If you’re not familiar with poblano peppers don’t even worry about it! They are mild in flavor and in spice. Think of them as more sophisticated bell peppers. The flavors of the poblano pepper really come out when the peppers are cooked, either sauteed or roasted. You can absolutely roast the peppers for this recipe but I am all about convenience and like to saute them with the rest of the veggies to make it quick and easy. To be on the safe side when working with poblanos just take out the seeds and veins to ensure the dip is not spicy. However, if you’re like me and like the spice then add on a jalepeno for an extra kick. OOOOH man, it’s a darn good kind of kick!CONTINUE READING
Salsa Verde Wings
These Salsa Verde Wings will rock your socks off! The wings are coated with my delicious salsa verde and are tangy and a little spicy. Perfect for entertaining, football season, or any time you’re craving wings.
My love for salsa verde is serious. The tanginess from the tomatillos with the spiciness from the jalapenos is the perfect combination. There are not a lot of things I won’t put salsa verde on. Which is when I got the idea of making wings with it I knew I had to give it a try. Thank goodness I did because WOW. These wings are so good and are the perfect appetizer. Just trust me, you need these in your life. Oh and did I mention they’re Whole30 compliant?!CONTINUE READING
Shrimp ceviche is a delicious and refreshing dish that is perfect on a hot summer day. Made with fresh shrimp, or seafood of choice, peppers, onions, and lots of lime juice, this ceviche is so satisfying. Drizzle a little hot sauce on top for an extra kick, you will not be disappointed!
Every time I make ceviche I am reminded of how delicious and fresh it is. Seriously every time I’m like, “OK! This is SO dang good!”, and proceed to pretty much never stop eating it. Growing up we had ceviche tostadas, or ate it with tortilla chips like a dip, and it was one of the dishes I looked forward to the most. If there is one thing you need to know about me it’s the fact that I LOVE limes, all citrus really, and the tartness of all the lime juice in this is the absolute best!CONTINUE READING

This Mexican street corn dip is the perfect appetizer for a summer barbecue or just to snack on. All the ingredients and deliciousness from Mexican street corn converted to a dip. Make sure you have lots of tortilla chips on hand because you won’t be able to stop at just one dip!
When you go to Mexico you are bound to find someone selling street corn out of a little cart. There’s nothing like watching someone create this delicious masterpiece. When they slather the sour cream or mayo on the corn then cover it entirely in crumbled cheese followed by a generous sprinkling of chili powder or Tajin. Sometimes the cherry on top is a nice squirt of fresh lime juice. I mean really, I am drooling just thinking about it!CONTINUE READING

There are various Mexican restaurants offering all kinds of versions of this and they’re all phenomenal, really. What I do have to tell you is how incredibly easy and quick it is. Fundido translates to molten, or melted, and it’s exactly just that: melted cheese.CONTINUE READING
