Super Bowl Sunday! The biggest sports day of the year is here! You can’t watch the game without some delicious snacks. Before the pandemic, I used to host sports parties in my house when my son would bring a bunch of friends home to sit and scream in front of a TV. Growing boys would show up hungry and I needed to feed them.
Now with Covid, it’s just our family, but I still like to prepare foods like chicken wings and dips. Especially this dip. A cousin of the Artichoke-Spinach, this Hearts of Palm & Spinach Dip is the perfect venue and it’s approved by many American boys. You can make it ahead of time and simply stick it in the oven during game time. Serve with whole wheat pita chips or any other chip of your preference. You can find this recipe and many others in my cookbook Latin Superfoods.
Hearts of Palm & Spinach Dip
Serves 6 people
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 large onion, finely chopped (about 1 ½ cups)
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Freshly ground nutmeg
Two 14-ounce cans hearts of palm, drained, rinsed, and pat dry
One 10-ounce package of frozen spinach, thawed and excess liquid drained
½ cup light sour cream
1 cup light mayonnaise
½ cup light cream cheese
¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Equipment: one 7 X 11-inch baking dish lightly coated with cooking spray
- In a medium skillet warm the olive oil and cook the garlic until it just starts to turn golden brown, about 2 minutes. Add the onion, season with salt, pepper, freshly ground nutmeg and cook until soft and translucent, stirring occasionally for another 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate and cool completely.
- Combine the hearts of palm, spinach, sour cream, mayonnaise, cream cheese, Parmesan, and the onion mixture in the bowl of a food processor and buzz until the mixture is smooth and homogeneous. Season again with salt and pepper. Spread the mixture into the baking dish. At this point, you can cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 3 days ahead of time.
- Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Bake until hot and bubbly, about 20 to 25 minutes. Serve hot with pita, crackers, or tortillas.
