Creamy Artichoke Dip Recipe

This creamy dip is a favorite of Mary Spencer's and her family in Waukesha, Wisconsin. "My sister, Teresa, got this recipe from a friend and she passed it along," Mary notes. "It's loaded with cheese, artichokes and just the right amount of jalapenos for a crowd-pleasing flavor.”

"Sometimes the spinach in most artichoke dips can overwhelm the other flavors. This was perfect! I did substitute Monterey Jack for the mozzarella, and substituted Provolone for the Swiss. I also used light sour cream in place of the yogurt and used plain salt and pepper to taste in place of the seasoned salt. What a hit! Thanks for the great recipe!"

"My Fav to serve company. I even make it more low cal by doing half yogurt and half light mayo and cutting out the swiss. I use Costco's marinated artichokes which adds even more flavor."

"I loved it. My family loved it. It was very simple to make. I did not have the yogurt so used a little extra mayo. I think next time I would chop up the artichokes a little more and add more jalapeno. Yum"
