Serve a different kind of dip at your Super Bowl party this year. BLT dip served in a scooped out head of iceberg lettuce draws a lot of attention at parties because it’s different from the expected spinach dip in a bread bowl.
- Western New York Super Bowl fans can watch the game on WGRZ Channel 2, the NBC affiliate.
Bacon, tomato and cheese combine with sour cream and plain Greek yogurt to make a mouth-watering dip your guests will enjoy right down to the last lettuce leaf.
Western New York shoppers can find all the ingredients for stuffed sweet bell peppers at local retailers:
- Budwey’s Markets (see website for location nearest you)
- Tops Markets (see website for location nearest you)
- Wegmans (see website for location nearest you)
Serve with an assortment of raw vegetables, crackers, bread cubes, pita chips and tortilla chips. You can make your own baked tortilla chips or spicy tortilla chips to serve with the BLT dip.
