Monday Morning Blog
Chips, dips and beans.
Super Bowl Sunday is the day we pay homage to the snack food industry - and you thought it was just about football.
Great Bowls of Garlic
Roasting garlic takes the sharp edge off so you can use as much as you like in this thick, yummy dip. Serve with pita bread or tortilla chips.
1 (15 to 16 oz) can kidney beans (drained but not rinsed)
1/2 fresh green pepper (chopped - about 1/4 cup)
1 small fresh tomato (chopped - about 1/4 cup or use 1/4 cup canned, diced tomatoes, drained)
1 small onion (chopped - about 1/4 cup)
3 cloves roasted garlic (or to taste)
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
Put everything into the food processor and blend till smooth. Chill.
