Luscious Spinach Artichoke Dip
Date : 2004-12-08
This recipe was tried on the family on December 7th, 2004. Marinated artichoke hearts were used in the recipe. The original recipe used half a package (10 oz) of frozen spinach, but we used fresh.
This is a rich, delicious dip that can be served with tortilla chips or slices of toasted French bread. It can be easily substituted with fat-free ingredients for all of you health freaks out there! It's an absolute hit at all parties. Here are a few suggested garnishes: shredded Monterey Jack cheese, chopped red bell peppers, parsley, sliced mushrooms, or bread crumbs.
1 (14 ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
5 ounces fresh spinach, chopped
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup cream cheese
1/4 cup grated Romano cheese
1/4 teaspoon minced garlic
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
In a small baking dish, mix together artichoke hearts, spinach, sour cream, mayonnaise, cream cheese, Romano cheese, and garlic. Cover dish.
Bake until heated through and bubbly, about 25 minutes.
You can use a food processor to combine the ingredients.
You can also bake uncovered to give the dip a bit of a top crust if you top with a little cheese.
Original recipe yield: 3 cups.
