"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!"
"When our daughters wouldn't eat the spicy chili beans I prepared, I came up with this milder, slightly sweet version," notes Keri Scofield Lawson of Fullerton, California. "They love eating the hearty chili as a dip with tortilla chips. I never have leftovers."
After trying to create a Mexican soup, I ended up with this outstanding dip that eats like a meal. My husband and two young children love it! Now it's popular for football game days or family gatherings. —Sandra Fick, Lincoln, Nebraska
This is probably the easiest recipe that I've ever come across, but it's one of my best-tasting recipes, too! It's very important that you keep the dip warm while serving. You can also heat it in a microwave oven.
Longing for that buffalo wing thing without the bones? This do-ahead dip freezes well in individual containers, so pull them out when you need to spread a little cheer. —Brenda Calandrillo, Mahwah, New Jersey
