Slam Dunk!


Basketball insanity heats up this weekend as the big tournament gets underway, and the games should be intense. Who do you think will be cutting down the nets in the end?

Hoops fans will be in hog heaven as they root on their favorite teams.

We at The Food Channel are chipping in with delectable dip ideas for the weekend’s hardcourt action…dips you’ll want to dig into when watching the big games on your big screen.

We’ll get your started with two indulgent dip recipes for tip-off weekend. Our Baked Bleu Cheese Dip and our super cheesy Queso Fundido con Chorizo.

Salsas for Sweet Sixteen

For the Sweet Sixteen round we’ve lined up two sensational salsas. One’s a classic red Salsa Mexicana, the other is a spicy green number, the Salsa Verde. There’s nothing quite like freshly-made salsa and crunchy chips to go with championship basketball competition.

For the Final Four…a Fine Flavorful Dip

The cream has risen to the top on the basketball court, so we suggest you try our creamy Sun Dried Tomato and Green Onion Dip to suit the occasion. Loaded with cream cheese and fresh ingredients, it’ll hit the spot like a clutch 3-point shot.

Now, you could always wash down your March Mania snacks with cold beer. But we’ve got an awesome alternative beverage recipe you should try. It’s our Nothin’ But Net spiced rum punch. Our recipe makes a gallon, so you won’t need to be getting up off the couch to mix a new drink during every timeout.

We’re also recommending some fantastic new chips that pair beautifully with our dips. They’re better-for-you chips from Food Should Taste Good. We first encountered them last fall at the Wine & Food Festival in New York.

Food Should Taste Good snack chips come in a variety of crunchy flavors including multigrain, olive, jalapeno, sweet potato, and buffalo. All the FSTG chips are all-natural and a good source of dietary fiber. They’re gluten-free, trans fat and cholesterol free. And, true to their name…they taste good. For more info, check their website. We especially like the Sweet Potato variety. We think you’ll dig ’em, too.
