Dine-In: New Year’s Eve snacks

I’m going to sound like an old fogey, but I don’t really like going out on New Year’s Eve anymore.

Actually, what I’ve always preferred –  even back in the day when I could actually stay up past midnight without feeling it the next morning – is just staying in with friends. Now that’s become our family tradition. All the guests bring an appetizer or two, we make a fire, turn on some music, and bring in the New Year the best way – with good friends and good food.

If that’s more your speed, too, here is a very simple but flavorful dip recipe for your New Year’s Eve spread. It goes well with vegetables (sliced raw carrots, broccoli and bell peppers) but I prefer it with pita chips, bagel chips, or hearty crackers.

Chipotle Green Onion Dip
Makes 1 1/2 cups

1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
3 green onions, green tops only, sliced thin
2 medium cloves garlic , minced
3 chipotle chiles in adobo, minced, plus 1/2 teaspoon adobo sauce
1 teaspoon  grated lime zest
1 tablespoon lime juice

Combine all ingredients in medium bowl until smooth and creamy. Transfer dip to serving bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until flavors are blended, at least 1 hour. Serve cold. (can be refrigerated in airtight container for up to 2 days.)
