About this time of year most people I know are having holiday parties or have been invited to a holiday potluck. I usually want to serve something hot and tasty, but what? Especially if you’re supposed to bring an appetizer, what then? That’s where my Hot Tuna & Artichoke Spread comes in.
Well, here’s a great suggestion, Hot Tuna-Artichoke Spread.
It’s a nice twist on spinach dip. And, it’s perfect served all hot and cheesy with some French bread or crackers. People love it! It’ll be gone in a flash!
I’ve been writing Island Trollers Albacore Tuna recipes for over a year now! Wow, how time flies! Here’s my first recipe with this fresh sustainable tuna, and how their amazing seafood spoiled me! I really can’t say enough good stuff about their super tasty tuna & how fresh it is. Go say hi on their Facebook page too! Tell ’em Life Currents sent you.
As a reminder, if you’re making these recipes with Island Trollers Albacore Tuna, you don’t want to drain off those tasty juices from the can; they’re the juices from the fish itself, not just plain ol’ water or oil. Those juices are loaded with Omega 3s. So, it might feel a little weird not to drain the tuna, but don’t do it.
Any of the Island Trollers flavors would be awesome in this spread. The jalapeno would add some more spice. The garlic would be lovely. The habanero would kick it up! I used the original flavor. I think all the flavors rock!
