Hot Artichoke Spinach Dip


My last recipe from Thanksgiving is presented here. Mr. Downeastdoingstuff claims he doesn't like artichokes, but he seemed to have no problem wolfing it down pre-turkey. The artichoke hearts are pulverized essentially, so no one is the wiser. I, myself, thought it was excellent. I liked the addition of the pepper jack cheese for that extra bite.

Here ya go.....

HOT SPINACH/ARTICHOKE DIP

Ingredients
1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach
2 (13 3/4-ounce) cans artichoke hearts
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan
1 cup grated pepper jack cheese
Directions
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a casserole dish with nonstick spray.

Heat the spinach in a microwave oven on high for 5 minutes and squeeze dry.
I REPEAT: SQUEEZE THE EVER LOVIN' CRAP OUT OF IT OR ELSE YOU WILL BE SORRY! Devote a clean dish towel to the job and dry the sucker.
Drain the artichoke hearts and coarsely chop in a food processor.
Combine all the ingredients except the jack cheese in a large bowl. Stir well. Scrape into the prepared casserole dish and sprinkle the jack cheese on top. Bake for 30 minutes. Transfer to a chafing dish and keep warm over a low flame. (OR NOT)
Serve with bagel chips.

Enjoy.

'Artichoke hearts'... ha, a cooking oxymoron if I ever heard one. BTW, I LOVE peas!

Hmmm. . . doesn't Mr. Downeastdoingstuff's brother also claim to dislike artichokes? (something about the word . . .). It seems as though he had no problems chowing down the dip either (must be genetic!). Yum!!

I wish I could eat sour cream but I have lactose intolerance. I wonder if it would work with yogurt. Sounds tasty. The post below, not so much. Ha!
