Whip It Up Wednesday!
I was intrigued when I saw a recipe for “Broccomole” on Pinterest. Could it be? My favorite mexican side dish could be made with Broccoli?!? I was skeptical to say the least. I had to try it! I whipped up a batch and made a few tweaks here and there. After whipping it up I presented the dip to my hubs for review, the conversation went something like this.
Me: Try This
Kelly: What is It?
Me: Just Try It
Kelly: Um ok…
Kelly: This is good what is it?
Me: It’s Broccomole
Kelly: Brocowhat?!? ….Shut the front door… This has Broccoli in it!
Me: Um yeah, hence the name Broccomole!
Needless to say he and I both have jumped on the broccomole bandwagon! It is really good, like way better than I thought it would be! I even had to buy more healthy chips to go with it!
