Now on to the main event! I was thinking of my favorite cheesy snacks. They include mozzarella sticks and spinach artichoke dip. Honestly, I tried to bake the mozzarella sticks and failed miserably, plus the sharpness was a bit too much for me. Lame huh?!
So it was on to a cheesy dip. In efforts to make a traditional cheesy dip healthier for game day, I substituted the cream cheese for pureed cauliflower and it is……awesome! Hence the Jalapeno Cheddar Dip.

Since the only thing in football I care about are the Seahawks and Russell Wilson, a blue and green theme was a must! So we’ve got blue corn chips, jalapenos, and spinach.

Ingredients
6 ounces Cabot Seriously Sharp Cheddar Cheese
1 medium head of cauliflower, chopped
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup Greek yogurt
1 cup frozen spinach
1 whole jalapeno (sliced)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
pinch salt

Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Boil water in shallow pan, add chopped cauliflower once boiling
Steam cauliflower until softened, about 3-5 minutes
While cauliflower is steaming, grate cheese then set aside
Spoon cauliflower into food processor or high powered blender, add Greek yogurt
Mix cauliflower, frozen spinach, and Greek yogurt until smooth
Add grated cheese, jalapeno, garlic powder, and salt
Pour mixture into shallow baking dishes or ramekins
Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until cheese is golden brown
Notes

Frozen spinach should thaw to become soft when added to the hot cauliflower, but you can warm it up before adding it if you’d like.
Adjust amount of jalapeno to alter spiciness, you can also use canned jalapenos (as I did)
Serve with blue corn chips (if a Seahawks fan) or regular chips and veggies
