I love spinach artichoke dip. This is a quick recipe that will satisfy your ‘out to eat’ appetizer craving! Plus, it’s super easy to make in advance, so you won’t waste all your time cooking when your Superbowl company arrives!
We have a group of 3 couples that have been friends for over 15 years. In our pre-kids days, our favorite dinner to make together was appetizers. Over the years, the appetizers we made morphed. This was one that was added a few years ago and has been a hit ever since! Everywhere I take this, I always have people ask for the recipe. It’s creamy and bubbly and warm and delicious…and it’s the perfect appetizer to make for the Superbowl. You can have it made up in advance and throw it in the oven at half time for some new munchies in the second half of the game!
I love everything bagels. But since I have started being a Trim Healthy Mama, bagels are a thing of the past. However, these chicken tenders give me those same delicious flavors without the belly bulging carb count! I saw Rachael Ray make these years ago and loved them way back when. I was thinking that with all the incredibly high fat items that are usually found at Super Bowl parties, this would be an awesome lower fat, no carb option for those of us not wanting to indulge so much!
I was at a friend’s home years ago and she was SO excited about making this brie for me. She told me it had jalapeño, nuts, apricot preserves and brie. I didn’t want to hurt her feelings, but it sounded disgusting to me! I tried to gently prepare her for the fact that I was probably not going to like it. In fact, I’d probably think it was way too spicy and spit it out. Boy, was I way off! Not only is this one of my favorite appetizers, it’s one of those things I make for parties that just blows people away. It’s super easy to make, but it seems fancy. The flavors are spicy and sweet, crunchy and creamy…It’s gonna knock your socks off! As I come into the holidays, I always pull this recipe out to take for fancy dinners, or wine and cheese parties. It’s super easy to transport, especially if you can have it ready to go and pop it into the hostess’s oven for 10 minutes. So here it is. I am going to give you the measurements that the recipe uses on the Pampered Chef site. However, I do not measure this. I put a couple scoops of preserves, some jalepeno, some chopped pecans or walnuts or whatever I have on hand. It’s perfect every time. I hope you love it as much as we do!
