One of the better convenience foods readily available on supermarket shelves and also in warehouse stores is spinach artichoke dip. There is also a frozen version in the frozen appetizer section of larger grocery stores. This dip (we like the version with jalapenos best) is good served as is with crackers, and is even better when heated.
Michigan resident Jennifer Cristy, a flight attendant who is constantly traveling, would rather spend her valuable time at home with her children instead of in the kitchen. She especially likes her spinach artichoke dip heated, and came up with these 3-ingredient Spinach Artichoke Tarts when she needed to take an appetizer to a party and was too busy during the day to cook.
Almost everyone has time to make these yummy appetizers; they have only 3 ingredients and take less than 20 minutes from start to finish. Since they are so quick, they are perfect to serve at holiday parties – less pressure on the cook and suitable to make at the last minute. And when guests request the recipe (they will; trust me), they won’t believe how little effort it will take to make them at home.
