Are you ready for some football?

26 Jan

Love it or hate it, the Superbowl is just two short weeks away.  Time to put your sportiest foot forward and celebrate the end of another wonderful season of men everywhere spending endless amounts of time on the couch and clogging up the DVR menu with hours upon hours of football games.  If your team happens to be in the Super Bowl. kudos.  For the rest of us that are ready for the season to retire….along with a middle-aged quarterback or two……bring on the commercials and artery clogging appetizers!!

I’m looking for a few new recipes to add to my Superbowl repertoire, but had to share the easiest Artichoke dip known to man.  It’s seriously simple, delicious and super fast to make!  I tried it out last weekend for the playoff games and loved everything about this crowd pleaser.

*The recipe can be found on Simply Recipes.

Quick and Easy Artichoke Dip Recipe

INGREDIENTS

METHOD
