Are guests coming over to watch the big game? Maybe the family is getting together for some much needed catching up time. No matter what the occasion, Spinach and Artichoke Dip is the ice breaker that is sure to please everyone in the crowd. It’s a familiar favorite and this version doesn’t skimp on the deliciousness. Yeah, it might be a little heavy on the calories but for an infrequent indulgence, you really can’t beat it.

If you like, make this dip a day in advance and then bake it when the company is on the way. In the unlikely event that you have any leftover, you can heat it up in the microwave and it will taste delicious once again.

Ingredients

Directions

For a quick weeknight meal, this dip makes a delicious stuffing for chicken breasts. Just cut a pocket in the side of a chicken breast, spoon the dip inside and bake it at 350 degrees until a meat thermometer registers 165 degrees. Simple!

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put the spinach in a colander or strainer and squeeze out as much of the moisture as possible.

Step 2

In a large pan, melt the butter over low heat.

Step 3

Add the onion and sauté for 5 minutes.

Step 4

Add the garlic and spinach to the onions and sauté everything together for 5 minutes.

Step 5

Stir in the cream cheese, sour cream and Parmesan into the spinach mixture. This should take several minutes and then it will become creamy.

Step 6

Stir in the artichoke hearts, breaking them apart with your spoon.

Step 7

Taste the mixture and add salt and pepper if necessary.

Step 8

Stir in half of the Monterey Jack cheese.

Step 9

Turn off the heat and then spoon the mixture to a baking dish.

Step 10

Sprinkle the rest of the Monterey Jack cheese over the top of the dip.

Step 11

Bake uncovered for 20 minutes or until it is bubbly and golden on the top.

Step 12

Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

Serving Suggestions

Serve hot with toasted baguette rounds, tortilla chips, pita chips, potato chips or whatever strikes your fancy. Make sure you provide a spoon, plates and napkins because it gets really ooey-gooey and cheesy.
