Blog_itsaKaleofaDip

curly kale, flat tuscan kale, blue kale, baby kale, no matter how you slice it, kale is a heck of a good thing! a superfood, in fact, as deemed by almost every top dietitian and nutrition expert out there. kale packs a nutrient punch with more iron per serving than beef. nothing compares to this leafy green superfood.

however, there is just one catch. kale is so high in fiber it doesn’t stick around in the body long enough for you to absorb all those rich nutrients. that’s why the clever people in the i won! kitchen have paired it up with yogurt, something fatty, in this delicious dip to help to slow down the digestion rate so you can enjoy all the benefits of this too-good-to-be-true food.

let’s get cooking!

ingredients:

  • 2 cups greek yogurt

if you like to dip, we’ve got the chip!

Blog_Recipe_Guacamole

when you have a protein chip that thinks it’s a tortilla chip, the only thing to do is make guacamole and go for a dip! will it stand up to the heat? or rather, does it have what it takes to dip and maintain its crunch? we put it to the test in the i won! kitchen and came up with this recipe. it’s devilishly hot!

hot and spicy guacamole

 

level 1: spice infusion

  • 1 lime, grilled and squeezed
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp sriracha sauce, as desired
  • fresh ground black pepper

mix the spicy base and let sit for about 15 minutes to marinade. It will intensify the flavour and the heat.

level 2: turn up the heat

  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 1 jalapeño, finely chopped (if you like it extra spicy)
  • 1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 bunch of cilantro, finely chopped, as much as desired

mix the ingredients to the spicy base and let sit for another 10 minutes.

level 3: the avocado advantage

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1-2 roma tomatoes, diced

mash three of the halved avocados, and mix with the diced tomatoes. add the spicy mixture and blend well. chop the remaining half avocado and add to the finished guacamole. serves four.

try this dip with our sea salt flavor chips or if you’re feeling adventurous, try the sriracha flavor for an extra kick. they’re the perfect chip for guacamole dip!
