Best Tailgating Dip

Best Tailgating Dip is Greek Inspired

Best Tailgating Dip for the big game this week is actually healthy. It is flavorful and easy to make. Fresh ingredients from the garden are superstars in this yummy twist on the 7 Layer Bean Dip. Count the layers of goodness. It won’t matter if you don’t get it exactly right because it will devoured before anyone can really count the layers.

I love the fact that is easy to assemble virtually anywhere.  Just layer the hummus and veggies. Get out the pita chips and scoop up the goodness. Your mouth will love the flavor explosion.

It is easy and I can’t wait to share the video with you.  I actually made it on KSL Studio 5 today. It will be aired tomorrow.  It has been a while since I cooked on TV. I was pretty nervous. I don’t know why I must be one of those vain women.  I worry more about how I look than how the dish is assembled. I guess I have the confidence in my cooking but not so much with my looks.  Always have had a poor body image. Despite my husband and friends who tell me I am beautiful I still have a hard time believing any of them.  I am what I am so I guess I will just have to learn to deal with it.  Find  the beauty in myself rings in my head but my heart does not believe a word of it.

Enough of my goofy issues.  This dip was inspired by the Mexican Bean 7 Layer Dip that everyone loves including me.  I am trying to eat cleaner, and little healthier. I love the flavors of Greece.  So inspiration took off from there.  It is so easy to assemble even my cooking class students could make it with ease.

You can use store bought hummus and tahini paste but really, Why? because they are so easy to make from scratch.  I keep a batch of Tahini Paste in my fridge for later use. My recipe makes enough to make many batches of hummus.  Which is good.

Vegetarians delight because this works for you too.  Kids may not like Kalamata Olives so just substitute the black ones. It will have a little less tang but the dip will still be good.
