Pace did a giveaway last year for the Superbowl, and is doing it again. We love Pace, don’t we. Actually, we do love Pace, my husband is a salsafied salsa fiend. He eats a quart of salsa a week because he loves the fresh tomato taste. Salsa is one of the healthiest dips/sauces around because it has lots of fresh vegetables and not a lot of fat and sugar. You can top eggs, sandwiches, chips, burgers, beef, chicken, spaghetti. It’s such a versatile topping, though you can just go at it with a spoon.
In preparation for Super Bowl XLIV (taking place this Sunday, Feb. 7 in Miami), here are four of Pace Kitchens’ favorite recipes for Super Bowl Sunday, to help make your party more festive and more memorable. Note: Giveaway at the bottom of the page.
Warm Spinach Dip with a Kick

- Tortilla chips or fresh vegetables
1. Spray a 2-quart saucepan with the cooking spray and heat over medium heat for 1 minute. Add the onion and cook until it’s tender, stirring occasionally.
2. Stir the spinach and flour in the skillet. Gradually stir the milk in the skillet. Cook and stir until the mixture boils and thickens. Stir in the picante sauce and cheese and cook until the cheese is melted. Serve with the tortilla chips for dipping.

Last year we enjoyed giving away some Pace Salsas, so we are thrilled to offer it again. This time we are giving away a two pack of Pace Salsa Verde and Pace Picante sauce. I’m sorry we’re late moving on this, so it won’t arrive for Superbowl Sunday, but it will arrive in time for Valentines Day. We’re closing this giveaway at half time of the Superbowl. I think Pace salsa is one of the must haves for your superbowl party.
