Easy Slow Cooker Jalapeno Popper Chicken Dip Recipe from A Kitchen Addiction

How’s your game day menu for Sunday looking? If you’re still in need of a few appetizers, I have a hands-off recipe that you need to try! This slow cooker jalapeño popper chicken dip has all the flavor of jalapeño poppers with significantly less work.

Slow Cooker Jalapeno Popper Chicken Recipe from A Kitchen Addiction

One of the most popular recipes on the blog is this crock pot buffalo chicken dip, so I figured why not take our favorite jalapeño popper dip and turn it into a slow cooker dip. To make it heartier, I added in some shredded chicken. If you don’t want to take the time to cook chicken, you can always use rotisserie chicken. The base of this cheesy dip is cream cheese and greek yogurt. Jalapeños and green chiles add the spice, but you could even throw in some red pepper flakes if you like it extra spicy.

If you want it for half time, just throw everything together before the game starts. Cook it on low until the cheese is melted and the dip is bubbly. It’s that simple. Then sit back and enjoy the game knowing that you have this cheesy dip waiting for you at half time!

Double Chocolate Yogurt Oat Muffins

Skinny Double Chocolate Yogurt Oat Muffins Recipe from A Kitchen Addiction

Yesterday we had a nice snowstorm roll through Minnesota, so now we have a beautiful blanket of white snow covering everything. Which makes me pretty happy! Especially since my husband was the one who went out and cleaned the driveway in the blizzard conditions, and I got to enjoy it all while staying in the warm house! (He really is the best.) While wrapped up in blankets watching the snow fall, I also got to enjoy one of these double chocolate yogurt oat muffins.

Lightened Up Double Chocolate Yogurt Oat Muffins Recipe from A Kitchen Addiction

These muffins may be one of my new favorites. I took one of my favorite healthier muffin recipes and amped up the chocolate. Baking cocoa and chocolate chips give these muffins a rich, chocolaty flavor while whole wheat flour, oats, yogurt, and honey act as the base. Despite the fact that they have oats in them, these muffins actually have a nice, light texture to them.

I added a bit of brown sugar to the muffins to make them slightly more decadent, but you can switch it out for more honey or leave it out all together. Eat a couple for breakfast and grab a few on the way out the door for an afternoon pick me up. Or wrap up in a fuzzy blanket, and enjoy one while watching the snow fall!

Serves: 18
Ingredients
  • ¾ C whole wheat flour
  • ½ C all-purpose flour
  • 1 C regular oats
  • ¼ C unsweetened baking cocoa
  • 1½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ⅓ C brown sugar
  • 1 C milk of your choice
  • ½ C low-fat vanilla or plain yogurt
  • ⅓ C honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ⅓ C semi-sweet chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Line a muffin tin with cupcake liners or spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flours, oats, baking cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and brown sugar.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together milk, yogurt, honey, eggs, and vanilla extract. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
  4. Preheat oven to 375. While oven is preheating, allow batter to sit. This allows the oats to soak in some of the moisture and batter to reach desired texture.
  5. Scoop batter into prepared tin, filling each cup about ⅔ full. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. Remove to a wire rack to cool. Store in an airtight container.

Cinnamon Raisin Honey Wheat English Muffin Bread


Cinnamon Raisin Honey Wheat English Muffin Bread Recipe from A Kitchen Addiction

Three. That’s the number of times I’ve made this cinnamon raisin honey wheat english muffin bread in the last two weeks. And it’s not because the first two times were flops. In fact, it’s the exact opposite. We devoured the first loaf before I even had time to think about taking pictures. The second time I was pulling the loaf out of the oven as my husband walked in the door. There was no hope of getting pictures then! The third time I made sure to take pictures before my husband got home!

Easy Cinnamon Raisin Honey Wheat English Muffin Bread Recipe from A Kitchen Addiction

Fortunately, this bread is super is easy to make, so making it three times in two weeks really isn’t that big of a deal. I know I try to convince you that all recipes involving yeast really aren’t that difficult. But on a scale of 1-10 for difficulty of yeast recipes, this english muffin bread is a 1!

You don’t even have to knead the dough! Just mix together the dry ingredients, and beat in the wet ingredients until a dough forms. Stir in the raisins, spread it in the pan, and bake. Then devour. Slice into thick slices, toast, drizzle with honey, and you’re good to go!

Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • 1½ C bread flour
  • 1 C whole wheat flour
  • 1½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • 1 pkg (2¼ tsp) instant rise yeast (I used Red Star)
  • 1 C milk, warmed to 120 degrees
  • ¼ C honey
  • ½ C raisins
Instructions
  1. Lightly spray a 9x5 inch loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray. Sprinkle and coat bottom and sides of loaf pan with cornmeal.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine flours, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, and yeast.
  3. With mixer on low, slowly add in warmed milk and honey. Increase speed to medium, and beat until dough forms and pulls away from sides of bowl. Slowly beat in raisins.
  4. Spread dough into prepared loaf pan. Cover with a clean towel and allow to rise in a warm, draft-free spot for an hour, or until doubled in size. (Since it's winter, this could take up to 1½-2 hours, depending on how warm your house is.)
  5. Preheat oven to 400. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Allow bread to cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Lightened Up Ranch Taco Dip


Lightened Up Ranch Taco Dip Recipe from A Kitchen Addiction

It’s that time of year again. Football non-stop. Which means snacks non-stop. And if your teams are no longer in the playoffs, then game day really is all about the snacks! Since game day food tends to be on the heavy side, why not switch up a favorite and make one of your snacks a bit healthier. That’s what we did with this lightened up ranch taco dip.

Lightened Up Ranch Taco Dip Recipe from A Kitchen Addiction

This taco dip doesn’t contain the heavy sour cream, refried beans, and loads of cheese that other taco dips contain. But don’t worry, there’s still loads of flavor. The creamy base of this dip is a combination of reduced fat cream cheese and Sabra’s Farmer’s Ranch Greek Yogurt Dip. The yogurt dip adds a burst of flavor without going overboard in fat and calories, and the cream cheese adds a richness that you expect from a traditional taco dip.

Sabra Farmer's Ranch Greek Yogurt Dip Game Day Appetizer

Salsa, black beans, tomatoes, peppers, a smattering of diced avocado, and a bit of cheese (because you just have to have cheese!) add the flavors that you love in a taco dip. Serve it alongside your favorite tortilla chips, and you have an irresistible snack that will be a hit at your next game day party!
