The Super Bowl is just around the corner, which can only mean one thing: time to bring our appetizer A-game!
Because as much as we all love watching the big game, let’s be honest. What we really love about it is the party. And the people. And the food!
Do you have any fun plans yet? We were invited to a neighborhood party with a bunch of other families….and while I’m sure most people will be there to actually watch the game, I’ll really just be there for the food. I mean….can you blame me?
I’m all about game day appetizers, and the Super Bowl is the ULTIMATE game day.
It’s the day to pull out our favorites, while of course keeping it simple. And what better way to keep it simple than by starting with Dean’s Dip?
Dean’s Dip comes in a huge variety of flavors – from Ranch to Veggie to Cheddar Bacon and so many more. And while it’s delicious all on its own, with veggies or chips or any of your favorite dippers, it’s also the perfect starting point for so many easy appetizer recipes.
Two of our favorites? Jalapeño Popper Pinwheels and French Onion Spinach Artichoke Dip.
Both are made with less than 10 ingredients, packed with delicious flavor, and seriously easy to make.
CAN YOU MAKE PINWHEELS IN ADVANCE?
Yes! Pinwheels are the perfect appetizer to make in advance. You can do this one of two ways:
- Combine the filling ingredients and store them in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Once you are ready to prepare the pinwheels, bring the filling to room temperature, then spread it onto tortillas, roll them tightly, and slice into 1 inch pieces.
- Combine the filling ingredients and spread them onto tortillas, then roll tightly and wrap them in plastic wrap for up to 24 hours. Once you are ready to serve the pinwheels, remove the plastic wrap and slice into 1 inch pieces.
CAN YOU MAKE JALAPENO POPPER PINWHEELS LESS SPICY?
You can easily adjust the spice level of Jalapeño Popper Pinwheels. For very spicy pinwheels, include most of the jalapeño seeds. For moderate spiciness, include some of the seeds. For little to no spice, remove all seeds and membranes completely.
You can also dip the pinwheels in extra Dean’s Ranch Dip to tone down the spice level or for an extra dose of creaminess.
HOW DO YOU MAKE CARAMELIZED ONIONS?
- Melt 1/4 c. butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
- Add 2 thinly sliced Vidalia onions and 1/4 c. beef broth.
- Cook, stirring regularly, until liquid is absorbed (10-15 minutes).
- Onions should be completely browned and tender.
WHAT DO YOU SERVE WITH FRENCH ONION SPINACH ARTICHOKE DIP?
This dip goes perfectly with tortilla chips, crackers, baguette slices, or even vegetables. It would also be delicious served in a bread bowl with chunks of sourdough bread for dipping.
If you’re looking for easy Super Bowl appetizers that are also packed with flavor, these Jalapeño Popper Pinwheels and French Onion Spinach Artichoke Dip are where it’s at.
They both have the BEST flavor, starting with Dean’s Ranch and French Onion Dip, and they couldn’t be easier to make.
Which leaves you with more time to enjoy the game…or the people…or all the other yummy food, without any of the stress!
So regardless of who wins the big game? You’ve already won the appetizer game. Which is pretty much the best thing ever.
