Get ready for football season with these yummy chips and dips!
Football season is right around the corner– can you believe it’s just 2 weeks away! Hubs has a Countdown to College Football timer going on his phone and another next to our Countdown to Disney sign– I really think he’s more excited about football than he is about our vacation!
Anyway, with football season brings TONS of snacks, appetizers, and game fare food– unfortunately they’re not always the healthiest of choices. So, I try to do what I can to make all these yummy foods with a bit of a healthy spin! I want to cut fat and calories but not taste! And I always try to hide veggies any way that I can!
I’m so excited to have the chance to try the new Green Giant Veggie Snacks— they have 2 new flavors that are OH SO YUMMY!!! The Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips in Garden Ranch and the Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips in Barbecue are the new flavors– I made some delicious dips to go with them that are packed with veggies and my family devoured every last bite!
The Green Giant Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips in Garden Ranch have a flavorful punch– they’re bold and delicious! I could eat the whole bag in a single sitting– but I decided to make a hot spinach artichoke dip to create a flavor explosion– and boy did it! The cheesy flavors from the dip converged so perfectly with the Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips that my family didn’t even realize they were eating a healthier option than what we get when we go to the sports bar! The Green Giant Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips provide 18g of whole grains and only 130 calories per serving– they really are the perfect addition to this Skinny Spinach Artichoke Dip!

And what party is complete without potato chips?!
Green Giant is also introducing the Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips in Barbecue flavor…… YUMMY! Let me just say….. I’m crazy about barbecue flavor potato chips….they are my first choice in potato chips every time! So I admit I was a little skeptical when trying these multigrain sweet potato chips…..I mean, really, sweet potatoes in lieu of regular potatoes for potato chips…..well it works beautifully! I LOVE the taste of these chips….they are so delicious on their own that I almost hated the idea to put a dip with them– but, just try it, the combination is an explosion of delicious flavors in your mouth!
I keep all of these simple ingredients on hand so I can quickly whip together a delectable snack when unexpected company stops by!
