Anyone can pull off spinach and artichoke dip - so brighten it up using collard greens for a Southern twist. Serve this dish with warm garlic Naan or tortilla chips. —Billie Williams-Henderson, Bowie, Maryland
Folks are sure to gather around this ooey-gooey, lightened-up dip whenever it's placed on any buffet table. With cheese, jalapenos and a hint of lemon, it's a treasured favorite of Mary Spencer's and her family in Waukesha, Wisconsin.
"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."
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!

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
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
