  • Leaving the skin on, cut the top off of the garlic bulb

  • While the garlic roasts…Blanch the kale:
  • Get a medium size bowl, and fill it with a little ice water
  • In a medium size pot, boil the kale in a small amount of water – only for about 1 minute
  • Drain, and throw kale into the ice water to shock it, and stop the cooking process
  • Drain, and squeeze kale
  • Now…let the dip begin!
  • In a medium sized bowl, mix the cream cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, jalapenos, garlic powder, cheese, bacon, kale, and roasted garlic (just squeeze the soft garlic out of the bulb)
  • Spread into a greased 8×8 pan, or whatever dish you want to serve your dip from
  • Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese over the dip
  • Bake for about 15 minutes, or until top is golden, and cheese is melted
  • Serve with Tortilla chips, crackers, or pita chips
  • Yield: serves 10
