Sunday is the “big day” but even if you aren’t a Patriot or Giants fan (or even a football fan!) it’s a fun day to hang out with your friends and family and a great excuse to relax and eat. And since we haven’t really done that in about a month, to my way of thinking we are definitely overdue!
So what is on your Superbowl menu? I’ve found that people are just as passionate about their Superbowl party fare as they are about their favorite team. For some folks, it is all about the wings and for others – well, you better have that hot dip or you can just forget about it. Fortunately for me, my crew isn’t very demanding . But, with a nod to tradition, I’ve got a great dip to share. A little different than the usual spinach or artichoke dips, but just as tasty!
Mahummara is a common dip throughout the middle east – and it seems folks are just as passionate about what is a “true” Mahummara and what isn’t as folks are about whose team is better. In researching this recipe, I found hundreds of variations – so in the interests of full disclosure, I am not claiming this is a “true” Mahummara. What I will claim is that it is really good, and really easy!
