With the warm weather quickly approaching, I'm sure you're all looking for new and simple recipes to bring to your next tailgating party. Great news: You need look no further because I have two delicious options, a cheese chili dip and a low-fat guacamole dip, just waiting to be tried.


8 oz. bar of Philadelphia cream cheese

1 can of chili, with beans or without

3 slices of Muenster cheese

2 slices of provolone and

1 bag of shredded cheddar cheese

The directions are super simple and fast for all of you on the go:

If you're looking for something on the lighter side or just want to add more to your big event, I recommend the low-fat guacamole dip. It's one of my favorites and sure to be a hit!


1½ cups frozen green beans, thawed

1 small avocado, cubed

2 large cloves garlic, minced

3 tablespoons lemon juice

1 tablespoon chopped jalapeño peppers

2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

The directions just seem to keep getting more and more simple:

1. In a blender or food processor puree the green beans, avocado, garlic and lemon juice until very smooth.

2. Stir in the peppers and cilantro.

3. Indulge!

Don't forget, leftover guacamole keeps for two days in the fridge and makes for a great sandwich filler!

These tasty yet effortless recipes are sure to make you look like the next Top Chef. Happy tailgating!
