Artichoke spinach dip

IMG_0815

My daughter worked at a restaurant when we first moved back to the United States. This dip was a common appetizer served there.  Foof does not like eating at restaurants and so she set her mind to figuring out the best way to make this. We came up with what works well for us and combined the idea of several recipes into what we like.

Ingredients

1 – 14 ounce can Artichoke hearts

1 cup low fat mayonnaise

1 cup whipped cream cheese

2 cloves garlic minced

1 1/2 cups frozen chopped spinach

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1/2 tsp. salt or to taste

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Put cream cheese in a bowl and mix well, add mayonnaise and continue mixing. Cook spinach according to package directions. Drain and chop artichokes. Add artichokes to cream cheese mixture, add garlic, mozzarella cheese and spinach. Fold this all together and pour into a casserole dish or pie pan.

Place in oven and let cook until bubbly, approximately 45 minutes. Remove from oven and serve with chips or crackers. Very hot so be careful!
