Spinach and Artichoke Dip

 I’m just going to post a short post today, just in time for New Years!

I made this fantastic dip for my family’s Christmas Eve get-together this year, and it was a hit. I thought that by doubling the recipe I would have some left over to take pictures of, but it was seriously gone within minutes. This is great for a party, with tortilla chips, crackers, or some nice crusty bread to dip in it. It keeps nicely in a crock-pot on its lowest heat setting. I’m just giving you the single recipe, but definitely make more than you think you will need!

Spinach Artichoke Dip

8 oz cream cheese

1/4 cup sour cream

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup parmesan cheese

3/4 cup frozen artichoke hearts, thawed

1 package chopped frozen spinach, thawed

1 clove fresh garlic, finely minced

dash of cayenne or red pepper flakes

Salt and pepper to taste

 

To prepare in a crock-pot:

Place all ingredients in the crock-pot set on medium heat. Allow cream cheese to melt. Once cream cheese is soft, mix all of the ingredients together. Lower heat to lowest setting.

To prepare in the microwave:

Place cream cheese in a microwave safe bowl. Heat cream cheese in 1 minute increments, until warm, and soft enough to mix. Add all other ingredients to the bowl, mix well. Add mixture to crock-pot on low heat to keep warm.
