Whenever I go to an event, I'm always asked to bring this hot dip. Five types of cheese make it a standout and oh-so delicious. I love its party-ready convenience—I serve it straight from the slow cooker, so set-up and clean-up is a breeze! —Noelle Myers, Grand Forks, North Dakota
"This tasty appetizer is similar to the version served in restaurants, but it has a fresh homemake flavor that keeps everyone dipping," remarks Cathy Carroll from Grayson, Louisiana. "It's a cheesy scrumptious snack that always results in recipe requests."
"Here's an easy, cheesy artichoke appetizer that I just love," says Kori Tuggle, marketing manager for Ocean Mist Farms, Castroville, California. "Our artichoke fields are a stop on Taste of Home's Slice of California tour. We look forward to showing the travelers how easy it is to cook and enjoy this thorny, odd-looking little vegetable!"
I keep a can of artichoke hearts in my pantry so I can quickly make my signature appetizer at a moment's notice. I find wheat or whole grain crackers nicely complements the artichoke. Everyone likes this warm spread.Susan Kruspe, Shortsville, New York
Whenever my girlfriends and I got together this rich and creamy dip always accompanied our favorite bottle of wine. Because the recipe relies on the convenience of a slow cooker, it's a great addition to holiday gatherings, too!

The first year I was married, I brought this to our family's Christmas Eve celebration. The dip and toasted pitas went over so well, I've been bringing it ever since!Tabetha Carson, Independence, Missouri
