A couple weeks ago I participated in the Tabasco Flavor Bowl with House Party. I'm not big on Tabasco but I thought it was worth a shot. I have to say - it opened my eyes (and my sinuses).
I made quite a few recipes from guacamole & salsa to beer cheese smokies - but my favorite was this Smoky Layered Mediterranean Dip.
If you haven't heard of House Party - it's sponsored by different brands. You apply to host a party - then you invite your friends - and you have a party and there are usually some small party favors and activities to do while you try whatever product they're sponsoring. I enjoy them but the only negative is they don't provide much for the actual party - so all the food, etc. is on you. This was more fun than most - we had a good time with the props and there was a trivia contest as well.
SMOKY LAYERED MEDITERRANEAN DIP
For amount shown in photo - recipe was doubled.
- 1 (16-ounce) container store-bought hummus (about 2 cups)
- 2 tablespoons TABASCO® brand Chipotle Pepper Sauce
- 1 1/2 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
- 1/2 cup chopped tomato
- 1/2 cup diced seedless cucumber
- 1/4 cup diced black olives
- 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
- 3 tablespoons chopped green onions
- Pita chips
Mix together hummus and TABASCO® Chipotle Sauce until well combined. Spread hummus mixture in the bottom of a 9-inch deep-dish pie pan or 8x8-inch baking dish. Layer with lettuce, tomato, cucumber, olives and feta. Garnish with chopped green onions. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
