Every once in awhile I get challenged to think outside the box with recipes. This is one of those times. I took one of my mom’s classic recipes and tweaked it over time to make it taste even better and what’s more, the main reason I made this dip is because I needed something yummy to go along with my legume snacks from Saffron Road. Gluten free and packed with protein, I definitely made my mother-in-law very happy when I told her that I had a ton of gluten free snacks for her to enjoy!
I had the chance to meet the people behind this amazing company in San Francisco at the Fancy Food Show. I could tell right away the staff had a passion for their product. and an even bigger passion for REAL food. Always organic, responsible practices, and the ability to take something snack-y and make it tasty. I mean, how can you even think a chickpea can be turned into something crunchy and tasty? I know I need to really hunker down and make some changes to my diet and that starts with my snacking choices.
I decided to use the Sea Salt Chickbean Crisps and Beanstalk snacks to go along with this dip because I needed something sturdy, this dip is quite thick, and I wanted the sea salt to play off the cream cheese and the green onion to compliment each other. I could make this every week and be super happy but it is cream cheese, I would need to switch to low fat (which I did try and it tastes just as good!)
Chipped Beef Dip
1 pkg Cream Cheese, softened
3 oz. dried beef (I used Armour brand in a glass jar found by canned meats)
2 green onions chopped
1/4 TSP. Onion powder
1 TSP. Garlic Powder
1 TBS. Worcestershire Sauce
- Soak the beef in water for ten minutes then dry thoroughly with paper towels. If you skip this step, your recipe will be very salty!
- Combine ingredients in a medium serving bowl and chill for 2 hours before serving.
