Creamy Chipotle Butternut Dip from Tasty Eats at Home

Are you looking for a healthy dip to serve at a party? As you know most dips are tasty, but are usually loaded with some really horrible ingredients. Here’s a great option from Alta Mantsch of Tasty Eats at Home. It’s a Creamy Chipotle Butternut Dip made from butternut squash, cashews, tahini, garlic, olive oil, and a few more fantastic ingredients, you’re sure to have something that will thrill your guests as well as keeping them healthy. Now the trick will be to give them something healthy to dip into it — I love Alta’s suggestion of raw veggies or gluten-free crackers — just be sure to keep it isolated if you’re also serving the regular stuff for your non-GF guests. One thing I’ve been noticing with dishes like this at parties where there are both gluten-free and non gluten-free items, the gluten-free ones usually run out first because they are so good because of the quality ingredients that are going into it.

It’s that time of the year – time to gather around friends and family and watch football! Superbowl is one of those events that draw football fanatics and non-football watchers alike. After all, it’s a big party that often includes booze and delicious-but-unhealthy snacks, and it’s an opportunity for people to get together and have fun.

But what if you are following a gluten-free or other allergen-free diet? Or are simply trying to eat healthier? What do you do to combat the beer, pizza, wings, and chips-and-dip-fest that occurs at a Superbowl party? Bring your own healthier, wholesome, nutritious snack, that’s what! This dip is creamy and slightly spicy, but packs a good amount of vitamins from the butternut squash, and healthy fats from cashews, tahini, and olive oil. It’s also addictive – I love it paired with gluten-free crackers, but it really works well with raw veggies, such as celery sticks.
