My children are such picky eaters. It can be the best meal that I ever made and they still push it away. Do you feel my pain? Some days I’m just ready to give in. One thing that I’ve noticed and learned was my little ones love to dip. I can’t say that I blame them I’m a dipper myself. It’s something about that additional flavor you get when you dip your foods. Lately, they have been on this ketchup kick. Everything they eat must have ketchup on it or on the side. It got to a point that we were going through a bottle of it within a week.
I’ve tried other alternatives but they always seem to look and still want ketchup in the end. So that is when I thought of making my own Tangy Tomato Sauce just for them. This kid friendly recipe is mild enough for the young ones but still enjoyable for adults.
Just the other day while I was doing my weekly shopping trip at Walmart, I wanted to surprise my kids with some awesome lunchtime snacks so I picked up some protein powered snacking like Tyson® Chicken Nuggets and State Fair® Mini Corn Dogs. I thought to myself, these quick meals would be perfect to use with my Tangy Tomato Dipping Sauce then I noticed there was a sticker for The Peanuts movie on the packages.
I totally scored with this one! The sticker read:
When you buy ANY TWO (2) specially marked packages of Tyson® Chicken Products or State Fair® Corn Dogs and you can receive up to $9.00 toward one child admission to see The Peanuts Movie Only in Theaters.
You see, by entering your codes into a website you get to redeem them towards your child’s ticket.
I told ya I scored! With the kids doing so well in school I can’t wait to reward them with seeing The Peanuts Movie in November. I’ve always loved the Peanuts gang when I was little. Charlie Brown and his pal dog Snoopy were my favorite characters. My kids think I’m nuts but I get so excited still when It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown is on television.
This recipe is so simple to make. Honestly, it’s one of my favorite dips to serve. And the best part, my kids go cray-cray over it! It all starts with some fresh tomatoes. Nothing taste fresher than a garden tomato. Wouldn’t you agree?
Grab your blender and cut your tomatoes in quarters. I found by cutting them in fourths does the job faster. Add your lemon juice, hot sauce, black pepper, chili powder and tomatoes into your blender until it’s puree well.
Now don’t let the hot sauce scare you. This recipe is more on the tangy side then hot. It’s full of freshness from the tomatoes and has a great blend of spices. I wouldn’t consider it a substitution for ketchup but it’s nice to change it up every now and again.
- 3 Medium Size Tomatoes (Puree)
- 1 Tablespoon of Lemon Juice
- 1/2 Tablespoon of Chili Powder
- 1/2 Teaspoon of Hot Sauce
- Cut your tomatoes in fours
- Place your tomatoes inside your blender
- Add 1 Tablespoon of Lemon Juice, 1/2 Tablespoon of Chili Powder and 1/2 Teaspoon of Hot Sauce
- Blend well together to a thick liquid form.
- Pour in bowl
- Best served chilled
Tyson® Chicken Nuggets and State Fair® Mini Corn Dogs are the perfect size for kids. They can grab a handful or plateful. Dipping can be optional but let’s face it, with my Tangy Tomato Dipping Sauce saying come dip me it’s pretty hard to pass up. (Ha-Ha)
