Spinach & Artichoke Dip

Rumor has it there’s a super bowl game going on tomorrow; talk about a Sunday-funday, eh. Anyways, if you’re a last-minute planner or for lack of a better term a procrastinator, I’ve got a dip for you that is always a huge hit amongst a group of football advocates and alcohol connoisseurs. If you’re hosting a party of your own for the big game and looking to please a crowd, spinach artichoke dip is a great compliment. If you’re looking for more snack ideas, be sure to check out last years Superbowl post for other healthy alternatives and quick recipes!

Of course this doesn’t have to be made just for football season. This is a great dip to serve for birthday parties, picnics or appetizers before a holiday feast! You can serve this dip hot or cold and it only takes 15 minutes, if that, to assemble. If you’re a big cheese head, you can sprinkle your favorite cheese on top and bake it in the oven until melted. Extra cheese is always okay.

Gluten Free/Vegetarian/Grain Free

Mise en Place:

-1 Can Artichoke Hearts, drained, rough chop

-1 10 OZ Pack Frozen Spinach, Thawed, drained

-1 8 OZ Pack Cream Cheese, softened

-1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder

-1 Teaspoon Salt

-1 Teaspoon Paprika

-1 Teaspoon Black Pepper

-Tortilla chips (or desired food to dip with)

Method of Prep:

-Drain the chopped spinach and make sure to squeeze out as much excess water as possible.

-In a large bowl add all ingredients and mix well to combine with a spoon.

-Taste and adjust seasonings if possible. I started out small with using a teaspoon of each spice. You may find that it’s not enough. Just add a little more at a time and keep tasting until it meets your satisfaction.

-If you plan to bake your dip, pop it in the oven at 350 degrees and bake for 15 minutes or until hot.

Enjoy!
