I tried a mixed beverage and an appetizer this week. Tailgating season is right around the corner and I am in search of a yummy purple drink to share with my fellow Pirates. On Pinterest a friend had pinned a Purple Martini and I thought that would be perfect.
This is the only photo I have of our attempt
You don't want the recipe! Let's just leave it at 2 attempts and both went down the sink. They were horrible! So back to the lab to create a slushy purple drink....12 days to go!
But we do have a winner in the Jalapeno Popper dip.
This is the pinspiration
We found the original recipe very mild, even when I doubled the jalapenos and added diced fresh peppers it was still mild so if you like heat follow my recipe, it still could stand to be hotter but I have some heat seekers in the family. I also didn't use the extra Parmesan and melted butter the original listed for the Panko mixture. I really think it doesn't need the added grease of the butter.
the small bowl is really yellow on top because of the cornflake crumb
topping for SweetGirl's gluten free diet
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
We really enjoyed it but I am much more a cheddar cheese jalapeno popper girl so it didn't remind me that much of them. If you are int cream cheese jalapeno popper camp you'll love these. Maybe next time I'll work some cheddar into it.
Have you been pinspired lately?
I'd love to hear somethings to try and even those to avoid...
I'm telling you steer clear of that Purple Martini recipe ;)
