My favorite appetizer to serve is store-bought mini fillo cups and filled with chicken salad. I want to change up from my go-to chicken salad cups and create a new appetizer. Usually, I serve my favorite spinach dip so I thought that the spinach dip would be perfect in the store-bought mini fillo cups. Appetizers that you can eat with your fingers and that you can eat in one or two bites are ideal for parties. Plus, everyone loves spinach and artichoke together.
The great thing about this recipe is that it is so quick and easy to prepare. When I entertain, I usually have many recipes to prepare. This one is so quick and easy so it only takes a few minutes of my time.
I have a couple of spinach dip recipes that I use usually depending on the ingredients that I have on hand. I have to use one of my recipes that can be baked but do not require baking for more than 8 minutes. This recipe works perfectly for these fillo cups.
Store bought and pre-packaged fillo cups are made with Phyllo dough. These are great because of their convenience.
