Classic Artichoke Dip Is a No-Fail Appetizer
Classic Artichoke Dip Is a No-Fail Appetizer

For entertaining, I'm a huge fan of dips. They can be assembled before the event, easily feed a crowd, and are always popular. Take artichoke dip, for example; even though I've had it a million times, I never get sick of it!

While there are many variations, this simple recipe is what I use when I want a comforting and traditional dip. Marinated artichoke hearts, cream cheese, mozzarella cheese, and jalapenos are a few of the ingredients that go into this scrumptious dip.

To make it, all you have to do is dump the components into a bowl, stir to combine, and bake. The recipe calls for pita chips, but I've served it with crostini, carrot sticks, tortilla chips, and crackers — it basically goes with everything! For the recipe,

Never been a fan of this.
YUMMY!! I love this dip.
I have a no fail, simple simple recipe, for a very similar for spinach artichoke dip. Take a block of cream cheese, mix with marinated artichoke hearts (eyeball it, and I like to dice them up because the leaves are quite large and it tastes a lot smoother if they are in smaller pieces), a handful of thawed spinach (again, eyeball it, so that it looks uniform when you stir it up, basically so that the consistency doesn't have too much white nor too much green), then mix in either grated asiago or Parmesan cheese (you can just buy this in a tub already grated), then cover the mixture in the same cheese (or different, whichever you prefer) and bake it until the cheese is bubbly and brown, and you can stick a knife in the middle and the knife is hot to the touch. This can be frozen or refrigerated and reheated, it is enough for a large party, and you can serve it with anything you like-crackers, breads, vegetables, whatever your heart desires!! Simple, quick and always a pleaser!!
This looks really yummy. I will have to try this one. I absolutely love artichoke hearts!!!
