Summer barbeque season is here! The July 4th holiday is looming and I am sure I am not the only one who is super excited at the prospect of a picnic with good friends and awesome family. Sometimes the picnic is planned and sometimes you need to bring a dish on the fly. Something easy to bring to any picnic is chips and dip.
Your friends at Frito-Lay have some suggestions that might just make your mouth water in anticipation, such as a Garden Lime Dip, which would interest my hubby, when coupled with Tostitos® Hint of Lime chips. Here are some dip recipes you might be interested in, courtesy of your friends at Frito-Lay:
Keep Your Cool – When it’s hot outside, the last place you want to be is in a kitchen with the oven blazing! Cool down with appetizers and snacks made from fruits and veggies, like our easy-to-make Garden Lime Dip — a perfect pairing with snacks like Tostitos® Hint of Lime chips!
Keep it Simple – A party isn’t a party without chips and dip, but not all chips are created equal. For example, some of Frito-Lay’s most popular snacks, such as Tostitos Scoops! tortilla chips and Lay’s Classic potato chips are made with only three simple ingredients: potatoes or corn, healthier oils and salt - that’s it! Use your favorite chips as a vehicle to dish up extra nutrition by pairing them with dips made with fruits and vegetables, like our Mango Salsa Chutney.
Keep it Fun – Give a traditional potluck a modern twist by asking guests to share their recipes before they arrive. As guests leave the party, provide them with a festive printout of all the recipes so they can recreate the tasty dishes at home.I love the idea of sharing recipes with guests as they leave, don't you?
