Few appetizers can top this killer combination of garlic, two cheeses and artichoke hearts. It’s creamy, warm and can be prepped a night in advance. What’s not to love? If you don’t have a food processor, you can use a metal spoon to combine the cheeses and finely chop the artichoke hearts and jalapenos (then cross off “gym” from today’s “To Do” list). Serve this Hot and Creamy Artichoke Dip piping hot with slices of baguette, fresh veggies, or my mom’s favorite, Fritos!

Artichoke Spread

    This dip is amazing. The second time I made it, I added spinach, green onions and mozza cheese (instead of Parmesan). I enjoy recipes that are relatively versatile so that I am able to substitute ingredients based on what I have in my kitchen, or to tailor ingredients to meet guests’ preferences. It went well with pita bread and tortilla chips – I will need to try french bread next. It is wonderful to be able to make it in advance too. It’s super quick and easy to prepare. Goodbye store bought dips!! Thank you for the recipe.

    I also omitted the jalapenos – unfortunately, the heat doesn’t fare well in my house and I was hesitant. Can anyone tell me how spicy the dip is when they are added? I would like to give it a shot, and maybe cut back on the amount if needed.
