One of our favorite things to do when there's a big game on TV is make up a variety of "finger foods" to snack on during the evening. Tonight's Super Bowl was no different and we went for some of our favorites - buffalo wings, sausage balls, pigs-in-a-blanket, and, of course, one of our old standbys, this yummy spinach dip.
It's a tradition to have this creamy dip at least once during the holidays, but we rarely have it during the year. So, it's a real treat! It's delicious and rich; and the basic recipe makes a ton - we snack on it for days! My favorite way to enjoy it - scoop it up with "hint of salt" wheat thins crackers.
Most of you probably have this recipe down by memory. But, in case you haven't tried it, I'm sharing it below.
16 ounce container of sour cream
1 cup mayo
3-4 finely diced green onions
1 small can water chestnuts, diced
1 small package frozen chopped spinach
1 package Knorr vegetable soup mix (or spring vegetable soup mix - they both work great!)
Thaw spinach, squeeze and pat with paper towels to remove excess moisture. In a medium size bowl, mix sour cream and mayo together. Stir in vegetable soup mix, chopped water chestnuts and onion, mixing well. Finally, add spinach, stirring well with fork to break it up and evenly distribute it throughout the dip.
Refrigerate for a couple of hours before serving with snack crackers of your choice.
Now, to enjoy the last two minutes of the Super Bowl. Looks like it's going to come down to the wire - great game!!!
