Spinach and Artichoke Dip
You don’t have to sit at a chain restaurant to feast on spinach and artichoke dip. Food.com has a simple Applebee’s “copycat” recipe that is as close to the real thing as you can get. Or, if time is not on your side, TGI Friday’s sells a frozen version of their Spinach & Artichoke Cheese Dip. You can find it in the frozen section at your local supermarket.
Guacamole is simple to make as long as you have a ripe avocado – something that is not always simple to find at the store! After cutting your avocado in half and scooping out the inside, mash it in a bowl. Add diced tomato, onion, cilantro and some lime juice to the avocado mash. Season with salt, pepper, cumin and cayenne pepper and you’re ready to go. For those who need specific directions or want to try something a little more complex try Alton Brown’s recipe on the Food Network or Beyoncé’s very own recipe. Bonus: This is the perfect dip for the vegetarian or vegan at your party!
