I have a secret! I’m going to set up a scene for you….It’s Sunday afternoon, we’ve had a full morning at church and then spent too much time and too much money at the grocery store. The leaves are starting to change, there is a chill in the air. The TV is on and a football game is blaring. And all of a sudden I get that urge, the urge to plop down on the couch and watch the game. And guess what? I DON’T want a smoothie as my snack. I don’t want to reach for a banana. No, watching a ball game calls for some good ole potato chips and dip!!
This is something that has always been an indulgence in our house. Something we have just a few times a year. And since it was an indulgence, I would buy the stuff in a jar. And we would dip right out of that container. WELL, that stuff is disgusting! Turn the jar around and read the label. It’s full of complete nonsense! Seriously! Dean’s Onion Dip contains 24 ingredients! Including palm oil, sugar, hydrolyzed corn and soy (GMO’s), and even food coloring!!
Things have changed around here. Yes, we still like to indulge in a little chip and dip action every once in awhile, but I take 2 minutes and make the dip myself.
- 16 oz Sour Cream
- 3 Tbsp Dried Onion
- 3 Tbsp Parsley Flakes
- 1 tsp Seasoned Salt (I actually don’t use seasoned salt so I do a few grinds of sea salt, a couple dashes of garlic powder and a dash of paprika)
Mix everything together and let the flavors mingle for a few hours in the fridge. You can eat this right away but the longer it sits the better it is!
Look for a good quality sour cream product. Organic is best. The only ingredient should be Grade A Cultured Cream. Then simply add some seasonings.
Pair this with USDA Organic Potato Chips (to make sure they are GMO-free) and you have yourself an awesome football snack. Oh, and if you want your pants to fit properly the next day you can serve this with carrots and broccoli.
