Our Rio Grande Dip Mix fuses flavors from the Northeast and Southwest, showcasing the sweetness from maple and heat from chipotle chilis. It is designed for seasoning vegetables, or to make a dip based on mashed vegetables rather than mayo/sour cream. Made with mashed yams or sweet potatoes, it's such a delicious flavor fusion that only your vegetarian family or friends will actually notice it's a vegetarian dish.
Serve mashed sweet potato dip with potato chips, flavored baked pita chips (pictured), or other veggie chips (black bean chips pictured). It’s a remarkable vegetarian Christmas appetizer.
TIP: for a "no/low sodium" dish, bake your own sliced pita chips: spray with cooking oil and sprinkle with granulated garlic; takes only about 10 minutes to bake at 350°.
OTHER GREAT WAYS TO USE THIS MIX FOR EASY CHRISTMAS AND ALL HOLIDAY ENTERTAINING WITH VEGETARIAN DISHES:
Hot Dip: Give a whole new meaning to "bean dip" with Rio Grande Refried Black Bean dip (pictured). Based on a popular restaurant appetizer, this is also quick and easy. See APPETIZER RECIPES for directions.
Side Dishes: Great change up for Christmas side dishes. For roasted vegetables, cut veggies into similar size pieces if needed, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with seasoning, and roast at 375°-400° about 30 minutes. Sliced Rio Grande Yams and Rio Grande Brussels Sprouts both are pictured. A vegetable mix of beets, potatoes, onions, mushrooms and carrots is also pictured. In a hurry, just add a bit of the mix to your favorite canned vegetable and heat. Drain and mash if desired. TIP: Drain well if using mashed veggies or dish will be watery.
Leave off the tortilla chips and the Rio Grande Refried Black Beans becomes a side dish casserole (pictured).
Vinaigrette Seasoning: Lovely as vinaigrette seasoning (shown in Rio Grande Pasta Salad with black beans, corn, red & green peppers & green and white onions). See RECIPES for vinaigrette directions.
This mix is delicious however you use it. Great with wine, Mexican beer or most seasonal ales. It's versatile, quick and easy too! And that makes it a top choice for your holiday parties.
