You can feel it in the air around here; the Super Bowl buzz. I’ve never been that huge of a football fan, but I could sense the palpable disappointment with the Vikings throughout the city last Sunday. But some seem to be rebounding from the disappointment and are still getting excited by the fact that our great state gets to host the Super Bowl this year.

I find myself in the position of not being able to really cheer on either team that made it to the big game. (Go Justin Timberlake, I guess…?) The Eagles beat the Vikings, so they are out, and the Patriots have already won approximately a bazillion super bowls. So, meh…I just can’t get into it. Good thing I can count on entertaining commercials, a great half-time show, and-you guys-the FOOD. I mean, seriously. I’ll take any excuse to throw a party and put out a spread of delicious for my friends and me to enjoy while paying attention to the game…or not.

Obviously, there must be guacamole. That’s like some kind of un-written football viewing rule, isn’t it? When in front of screen watching Super Bowl, there must be a large bowl of guacamole for sustenance during the viewing of the game. Seems legit.

There will be guacamole at our party, for sure. But I’m going beyond guacamole this year. I need another kind of dip just for fun and, obvi, more food. And since this is party food that shouldn’t take much time to throw together, something easy and delicious was a must. This is just the thing: artichoke garlic cumin dip. Friends: it is exceptional.

With chopped up veg, chips, or bread, this dip is a winner all around. And, if you have a food processor, takes approximately 5 seconds to make. Ok, maybe it makes a minute. But still, it’s really easy, really fast, and really good.

Happy Super Bowl viewing, friends! And (more importantly) happy eating!
