Smile Artichoke Spinach Cheese Dip

This is one of my best recipes! It is so yummy and great as a spread on crackers or w/ Frito corn chip dipper scoops.I took it to my family's Christmas Eve dinner gathering and ended up taking home an empty 2 qt. casserole and giving out the recipe!

Artichoke,Spinach Cheese Dip

2 14 once cans artichoke hearts,drained and cut up or torn into pieces(the artichoke hearts canned in water/brine not the olive oil packed ones!)
2 small pkgs.frozen spinach,defrosted and squeezed dry
2 cups of fresh parmesan cheese shreds(in the bag in dairy section) or 1 c. of the parm.cheese and 1 c. of Italian cheese shreds(asiago,parm and mozarella)
2 cups good quality real mayo(I use Hellman's)--Do not use light or low fat!!

Mix all ingredients and pour into a 2 qt casserole.Top w/ some extra cheese on top if desired.I do!
Bake 350 degrees for 30 minutes-just to melt cheese and heat through.

Enjoy--this is easily downsized(The above recipe was doubled)and you can leave out the spinach too.We love this decadent dip on Frito corn scoopers!
Yummy!

Happy New Years everyone.

Re: Artichoke Spinach Cheese Dip

Thank you for a yummy looking recipe! I have ladies night every other week and we have a thing going where we try a new artichoke/spinach dip at every restaurant and still haven't found a really yummy one! I will have to try this one the next time the ladies come here.

Re: Artichoke Spinach Cheese Dip

I made this again yesterday--was having a craving because I posted the recipe! I had some more today--it reheats great in smaller portions in my microwave.Yummy good.

I try not to think about the mayo calories! I am thinking about decreasing the mayo a bit or using 1/2 light sour cream and 1/2 mayo(has to be regular for this recipe)Anyone have suggestions? I dont want to mess up a great recipe-will have to tinker w/ it next time I make it.

I love taking this to mommy playdate get togethers(the dip is for the mommys and I usually bring animal crackers for the children)I'ts popular at our monthly informal La Leche League enrichment meetings.

Re: Artichoke Spinach Cheese Dip

I make the same thing, though I add the juice of half a lemon and a bunch of garlic.... YUM! I usually do not put in spinach so my DH will eat it

What I love about this is that it is super easy to make when friends stop by so I always have the ingredients on hand
