My go to when we have people over is some sort of dip and when it comes to having my husbands family over it is always fried wings as well. Whenever we eat really unhealthy things I feel like I must through a salad in there somewhere. So kale and sweet potato salad it is.
I am going to start with my very favorite thing and what I could eat for every meal for the rest of my life. Haha just kidding! No, actually I’m not! I really could eat this for the rest of my life and never get sick of it.
Hot Corn Dip- page 74 of the Come and Get it cookbook
Delicious Scale- 10 out of 10
Family’s Delicious Scale- 10 out of 10
Prep Time- 35 minutes
This starts with grilling some corn and sautéing some very colorful bell peppers, jalapeño and onions.
The corn and peppers then get mixed with cream cheese, monterey jack cheese, mayo, sour cream, green onions, canned green chili, salt and pepper. Put this in a baking dish and cook at 350 for 20 minutes. This is such melty goodness, the spice from jalapeño’s and green chili with the sweet pop of corn makes this irresistible. This is served with tortilla chips but I just wanted to eat it by the spoon full.
Kale and Sweet Potato Salad- page 296 of the Dinnertime Cookbook
Delicious Scale- 6 out of 10 (probably because it was served with 10 out of 10 dishes)
Prep Time- 20 minutes
The recipe calls for butternut squash but I didn’t have any so I went with sweet potatoes instead. This is a simple recipe that you just saute the kale and sweet potatoes with butter, salt, pepper and chili powder. This allows the kale to shine through which I appreciate but most people are not in love with the taste of kale. Speaking of kale has anyone made kale chips? Totally worth a try because they are amazing!
My husband made his fried wings with multiple different sauces, which I can do another post about just let me know if your interested.
Finishing the night off with auntie cuddles makes for a perfect meal.
