TikTok Is Loving This Spanakopita-Style Super Bowl Dip

Is there any day of the year that celebrates snacking as much as Super Bowl Sunday? Yes, we know there is a big football game taking place as well, yet we can't help but get excited over any event that normalizes a whole day of noshing! While some of the best athletes in the country face off in the gridiron to determine who will bring home the coveted Vince Lombardi Trophy this weekend, we plan on competing in our own sport – seeing just how many different finger foods we can devour before the big game ends.

When it comes to popular Super Bowl snacks, a survey conducted by Instacart revealed that chips are the big champions of the day with 99 percent of Americans responding they plan on munching on some during the game. Instacart also pointed out that one particular chip leads the pack in sales during the week before the Super Bowl: Tostitos Scoops Tortilla Chips. So, it shouldn't be a surprise that a recent TikTok featuring some delicious-looking dip just begging to get scooped by a tasty tortilla chip was a big hit with viewers.

This TikTok recipe features a Greek take on Spinach and Artichoke dip

According to her profile, TikTok user @HungryHappens brings us "Basic + Bougie Recipes Daily." One recent post has a million views (as of this writing) and features a dip that looks devastatingly drool-worthy, or as one user put it, "Omggggggg that looks divine!!!" The recipe, just in time for the Super Bowl, is for Baked Spanakopita + Artichoke Dip. (Spanakopita, if you're wondering, is a Greek pastry akin to a flaky, spinach pie.) One follower has already made the dip for the playoffs and confirmed it "Was a very big hit." Others can't wait to try it, expressing excited anticipation like, "My tastebuds are salivating" and "Looks delicious must try!!" 

The full recipe for the dish can be found on Hungry Htappens where Stella Drivas, the woman behind the website and TikTok profile of the same name, explains how she incorporated scallions, garlic, dill, and feta cheese into a traditional spinach and artichoke dip, in order to "put a Greek spin on it." But, some commenters felt Drivas' recipe was a little too close to the original, like one who wrote, "Looks good, but don't misrepresent. That's artichoke and spinach dip."

As for us, we don't care what you call it, just make sure you bring enough to last through the 4th quarter!
