After a long day at school, the kids are always ferociously hungry. We all remember rifling through the cabinets and fridge looking for something to curb those afterschool munchies, but nothing seemed to satisfy. Parent’s take note – these quick, easy and delicious snacks will be favorites in your house in no time.
Cold Spinach and Artichoke Dip – This dip comes together in minutes and is immediately ready to eat. Serve with vegetables or chips for a quick snack. The kids won’t mind that they’re eating vegetables!
Dill Dip – A household favorite in this Examiner’s household. We have been eating this dip since we could chew a carrot on our own. This dip has four ingredients all of which are refrigerator staples. The secret to this cold zesty dip? Pickle juice!
Roasted Chickpeas – The kids won’t even care that these crunchy nuggets are beans! Canned chickpeas can be dried in the oven creating crispy texture that’s close to a potato chip. You can flavor these up any way imaginable – BBQ, garlic and rosemary or sweet.
Homemade salsa – Who doesn’t love chips and salsa? This salsa uses fresh summer tomatoes that will knock your socks off. Forget jarred salsa…this is a crowd pleaser.
Guacamole – Guacamole is a match made in heaven when it’s paired with homemade salsa. Avocados are healthy vegetables that most kids love for its beautiful green color. Make it chunky or smooth and your kids will be begging for more!
