Tradition in my house is serving appetizers on Christmas eve, sipping cocktails and playing board games. Fun for the whole family! I put of some of our faves and this Artichoke Spinach Dip hasn't missed a Christmas Eve yet! It's an easy one to whip together, even the night before. And I might mention, it travels well if you're asked to bring an app to a friends house. I serve mine with either fresh bread +blue corn tortilla chips + or pita chips! Be forewarned, there will be nothing left in that dish.
