Cheesy Hot Artichoke Spinach Dip Recipe

Cheesy Hot Artichoke Spinach Dip Recipe

This hot dip is favored by family and friends so it always appears on my party menus. To avoid last-minute fuss, I assemble it the night before and bake it when I need it the next day.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
