My family and I love watching college basketball, so we are excited about all the big games that will be starting soon. The game is fast paced and unpredictable, and of we love to see upsets and surprises! Basketball is the perfect sport to watch with friends and family, and you can all enjoy snacks like this Onion Dill Dip.
To go along with our big game dip I picked up some new snacks from Cheeze-It, Cheez-It Crunch’d and Cheez-It Grooves.
Cheez-It Crunch’d is a completely new product – crunchy puffed up Cheez-Its. Â My daughters and I loved the Hot and Spicy flavor, which is very, very spicy with lots of peppery flavor. The Cheez-It Grooves Â are a combination of regular Cheez-It Crackers with a chip. Â These were both perfect for dipping into the creamy Onion Dill Dip.
The dip is very easy to make, and it makes a great complement for spicy snacks. Â I used green onions, parsley and dill to flavor the dip and give it a unique taste.
Using fresh dill in this recipe is essential, because dried herbs just don’t have as much flavor! Â Greek yogurt and sour cream were the base for the dip, because I prefer the creaminess of yogurt to a mayonnaise based dip. Â It takes only a few minutes to put the dip together, and then you can refrigerate it until game time.
- 1 c. Greek yogurt
- 1 c. Sour Cream
- 1 T. lemon juice
- 4 green onions
- ½ c. fresh dill
- ¼ c. fresh parsley
- salt and pepper to taste
- Mix the yogurt, sour cream and lemon juice together and still well.
- Chop the green onions, dill and parsley and mix into the dip.
- Add salt and pepper to taste.
- Chill for about an hour before serving to let the flavors blend together.
I picked up the new Cheez-It products at Walmart, where they had a large display in the center aisle with the new flavors. The display at Walmart also featured the Most Valuable Cheese Contest, a fun conest taking place from now until April that lets you vote for your favorite flavors and varieties of Cheez-It. You can enter and play games for a chance to win $10,000!
I can’t wait until all the snow finally melts and we can get outside and actually shoot some hoops as a family this spring!
But while we wait we will enjoy watching some great games on TV, and rooting for our favorite underdogs to pull off the upset! Â How about you, are you planning some basketball watching parties this March?
