It’s almost time for the big game. You’ve been quietly checking ESPN on your lunch break and hoping Nate Silver’s magical predicting methods are right about the Seahawks beating the Falcons on Sunday. With all that nervous energy pumping through your veins you may have forgotten one of the most important things…game day munchies.  Fear not! These tostadas with roasted corn salsa from our latest Darigold Fresh minis are the perfect solution when your crew shows up hungry this weekend.  Your friends will be impressed and you’ll be grateful you didn’t settle for bean dip again. That didn’t turn out so hot last time.

2 tablespoons fresh jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro

Heat the oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add the corn and cook, stirring frequently, until lightly browned (about 5 minutes). Transfer to a large bowl and cool. Add the tomato, jalapeno, cilantro and 2 tablespoons green onion; season with salt and pepper. Makes about 3 cups salsa.

Combine 1/2 cup Darigold sour cream, 2 tablespoons minced green onion and 2 tablespoons Darigold milk in a small bowl; set aside.
