"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!"
With chili powder, red pepper flakes and picante sauce, this dip has plenty of kick! I like to take it to parties and never have to worry about bringing home leftovers. —Joan Kittler, Western Springs, Illinois
No last-minute party prep is needed for this warm, creamy dip. Put it together hours before the gathering and let a slow cooker do the work until your group is ready to dig in. —Pat Habiger, Spearville, Kansas
