Game Day Provisions: Championship Caviar


Game Day Provisions 

The Technique

Championship Caviar

A fine selection of appetizers & dips are always appropriate to serve guests when game day football parties are scheduled. Championship Caviar has long been a crowd-pleasing favorite when tailgating. Honey & roasted pepitas give this variation a lovely sweet & salty edge above the standard. Accompany with an array of classic southwestern snacks including Jalapeño-Margarita Chicken Burgers, Game Day Queso Dip, Gridiron Guacamole, Homemade Salsa & Game Day Fiesta Dip. A batch of Ginger Margaritas complete the pass for a tailgate party filled with good taste.

Run The Option

Toss a diced peach into the huddle just before serving for a southern twist on this crowd pleaser. Mango or pineapple would make for excellent additions, too.

1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 Tbsp oil
1 Tbsp honey
1 garlic clove, pressed
1 tsp kosher salt
2 {15.25-oz} cans black-eyed peas, rinsed & drained
1 {15-oz} can black beans, rinsed & drained
3/4 cup diced red bell pepper
1/2 cup diced red onion
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 Tbsp minced jalapeños
Garnishes: Roasted pepitas & queso fresco
Tortilla or corn chips

Combine the first 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Fold in the black-eyed peas & the next 5 ingredients. Cover & chill 1 to 24 hours. Stir the dip well & adjust the seasonings. Transfer to a serving bowl. Garnish, if desired. Serve with chips.

The Extra Point

The kick is good! File this fan-favorite dip under special teams. Spoon over baked sweet potatoes, layer with cheese for quick quesadillas or top mixed greens to clench the win for fast weeknight meal solutions.

How To Juice Fresh Limes

Limes can be used in both sweet & savory foods pairing well with just about anything making them extremely versatile. When choosing them from produce bins, select fruit with a bright, uniform color. Pick them up & gently press them in your hand. They should feel firm with a slight give to them. If the zest is desired, take care of that task first by running the outer portion over a microplane grater, then slice the limes in half for juicing. Extracting it is simple when the correct tool is used.

 When fresh lime juice is needed for recipe applications, it’s important to have the right device that will release every bit. A glass juicer where the reamer is set over a small bowl to collect the juice can be used or my preferred choice is a lime press. These valuable tools are generally coated with a non-reactive finish to prevent the acid from producing off flavors. Citrus halves can be placed in the custom fit compartment then the handles pressed together to extract the juice over a small bowl. It’s efficient enough to press every bit of juice quickly. Once the task is complete, the pulp & seeds, if any, will be left behind. Simply remove the used lime halves & discard them. Before adding the juice to recipe applications, pour it through a small fine wire mesh sieve to collect any seeds or unwanted bits of pulp that may be in the bowl.
