The snacking season is here. The weather is cold, the days are getting shorter and I’m putting all my tank tops away. That means I don’t have to show off my arms and instead of worrying about how fly I look I can instead focus on how many carbs I can eat before summer shows back up again. I have my priorities in CHECK! BUT you know what else is in check? THIS DIP! Well, I’m not really sure if a dip can be “on check” but it is. Maybe I should say the dip is on fleek. Yes, on fleek. Wait, are people still saying “On fleek?”
Sigh, I’m too old to go around trying to sound like I get the youth of America and their ever changing lingo.
Noooooow when you make a dip like this you need something for dipping. Something crazy delicious and perfect for ALL party guests! That’s why I used these crazy delicious gluten free sea salt pita chips from Toufayan. They are also scoopable which means you can LOAD up your chips with all. the. dip. Oh and these chips aren’t just gluten free they are also vegan, non-GMO, oven baked and are all natural, with no cholesterol or trans-fats. How is that for delicious?
Want to know something else I love about these chips? The company! I had the pleasure of meeting the family a month ago and sitting at their conference room table felt like sitting together at the family dinner table. They were kind, funny, sarcastic and 100% my kind of people. I learned all about their 90-year-old family owned company, ate fresh bread RIGHT OUT OF THE OVEN (this deserves an all CAP because sweet baby J it was delicious!) and learned all about how they still oversee all the activities in their business. Not only is this family awesome their products are awesome.
Oh, I almost forgot to go over what’s all in this baked spinach bacon dip! Well, you’re going to LOVE it! This baby is packed full of spinach, crispy bacon, cheese (so. much. cheese.) and just a touch of garlic. This dip was made for football season. This dip was made for parties. This dip was made for dinner when you’re super tired and just don’t feel like cooking.
