THE RECIPE

Baked Goat Cheese Salsa

Not your average chips and dip

Chips and salsa may just be one of our favorite Game Day (or any day) snacks but let’s be serious…it’s predictable! Kevin elevates chips and dip to a new level with this ingenious fusion of flavors and textures that couldn’t be easier to make. Rounds of tangy goat cheese are nestled into spicy homemade salsa then baked until golden on the top and meltingly soft on the inside. Serve a big dish of this with plenty of tortilla chips (or even slices of toasted baguette) for a dip that’s sure to be a crowd pleaser while you’re watching the Super Bowl.

Kevin Lynch from Closet Cooking

After years of boring meals, I am now on a tasty adventure to find new flavours in every meal. I enjoy exploring the world through cuisine and taking what I learn along the way and using it in creative new ways.

Kevin is a Toronto-based software engineer and food blogger who shares his worldly cooking creations out of his closet-sized kitchen. What’s most interesting is that Kevin wasn’t always passionate about food and cooking. Over the past several years, he’s delved into the world of cooking to save his meals from the same old boring staples and has documented this adventure on his blog, Closet Cooking. He’s a very active blogger who tries flavor combinations inspired by cuisines from around the world and putting his own spin on traditional favorites. We’re particular fans of his burger recipes, which will take you on a journey around the world and back in just one bite!
