It’s football season friends!! Our family really isn’t big into sports but this time of year we can’t help but have a blast with all the tailgating parties that our loved ones throw. It’s so much fun to watch their excitement as their teams battle for the titles.
It’s no contest though our favorite part is the FOOD! Today I’m excited to share these tailgate wraps with you because they are my secret trick for whipping up quickly when we need to rush out the door to a party but don’t want to show up empty handed.
These tailgate wraps are filled with meats, cheese, veggies and plenty of Good Foods Chunky Guacamole which is hands down the best guacamole on the market. I like to wrap them up in parchment paper with twine for an easy grab and go option (bonus points for presentation!). They are always a winner at the parties especially if we are tailgating without a grill.
Now let’s talk guac guys. I used to make our guacamole exclusively from scratch because I’m a bit (okay a lot!) of a guacamole snob. So when my mom started showing up with the Good Foods Chunky Guacamole Single Serves in her lunch a while ago, I have to tell you…I was a total eye rolling skeptic.
But then I tasted it. My exact words were, “What is this witchcraft?!”
I couldn’t believe that it was a commercially made guacamole that wasn’t a pureed baby food. After eating her entire container (sorry mom!) I had to find out more. There wasn’t any fillers in it, there weren’t preservatives in it, just amazing delicious avocados, tomatoes, garlic, onions and lime juice.
I dug in deeper because I wanted to understand what was really happening here. And the more I dug, the happier I became. If you’ve been around the blog for long you know I’m a total food geek and that we only work with companies who we absolutely adore. And that I love sharing the origin stories behind the companies we work with!
Good Foods has such an incredible story of how they work with their processors to get the freshest ingredients and I just had to share their founder video with you so you could see too!
Not only that but it turns out that the way they are getting all those chunks in the guacamole is just like we do at home…they hand scoop every single avocado!
But fresh ingredients or not I still didn’t understand how the whole thing was working with no preservatives in the guacamole. If you make guacamole at home you understand what I mean…it just doesn’t last and the flavor starts to diminish super quickly.
Turns out they have an answer for that too…high pressure processing. And YES you better believe I nerded out reading all about this processing system after I learned about it!
Here is a quote from that article!
“Simply stated, HPP is a technique by which food and beverage products, already sealed in final packaging, are introduced into a cylinder-shaped pressure chamber where they are subjected to a high level of hydrostatic pressures (43,500-87,000 pounds per square inch) transmitted by cold water. The HPP process can take from one to six minutes.
Acknowledged by USDA and FDA as a kill step, HPP is a natural process that inactivates E. coli O157:H7, Salmonella, Listeria monocytogenes, and other foodborne pathogens, with minimal impact on a consumable product’s taste, texture, appearance, or nutritional value.”
And if amazing guacamole wasn’t enough to make your tailgating so easy, they also sent over tons of their newest line of products…some ridiculously amazing plant based dips! You heard me right, creamy delicious dips all made exclusively with plant based products.
Again you guys….this was either going to be really good or awful. I pulled them out and my husband and two boys skeptically tried them. One taste and everyone gave them all their stamp of approval!
I literally had to pry the containers away from them (the Queso dip is not pictured because I almost lost fingers trying to retrieve it!)
Now don’t get me wrong I love a good yogurt dip but there are times when I’m trying to lighten up things and cut dairy out for a while and it can be so hard to do that! I was at yoga teacher training this past weekend for example and these were the perfect thing to throw in my bag when I needed light and clean energy.
The base of these is made out a few things but cauliflower and nuts are definitely prominent but I promise they don’t taste like eating peanut butter or cauliflower. They blend in the perfect mixtures of herbs and seasonings to perfectly hit the flavors. We get a ton of products sent to us in our line of work and it’s super rare that every single flavor tastes good, but we loved each and every one of their dips!
I cannot wait for these to hit the stores!
It passed my super taster hubby’s taste tests and the kids were all dunking their wraps into them like crazy, so you know it’s delicious!
What about you? Would you try plant based dips?
I hope you make these tailgate wraps for your family and friends this season and pick up some of Good Foods products to help make it easy and delicious!
