Spinach Artichoke Alfredo Dip

Our family loves hot dips.  I make them as a side dish all the time, and they are always devoured.  If there happens to be any leftover, they are great to heat up the next day for a snack.  I’ve shared my Jalapeno Popper Dip before, & while that one remains my absolute favorite, this Spinach Artichoke Dip is nipping at it’s heels.  It’s so creamy & flavorful…..and it’s a great way to sneak some veggies into your husband’s kid’s diets too.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Drain the liquid off of the artichoke hearts, & give them a quick chop.

Cook the spinach in the microwave via the cooking instructions, subtracting about a minute.  Squeeze out the excess liquid either by hand, or by putting the spinach in a colander & pressing down using a spoon or your fingers.

Combine all your ingredients, except for 1/4 cup of mozzarella cheese, & place in a 2 quart baking dish.  (Or if you’re like me, mix them all together in your baking dish).

 

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.  Remove, & sprinkle on the reserved 1/4 cup of mozzarella cheese. 


Put the dip back in the oven for a couple of minutes to melt the cheese on top.

Serve with tortilla chips, or toasty bread – or whatever else you care to dip in it 🙂
