Reviews for Hot Artichoke-Spinach Dip
"Outstanding! Made as directed but without the spinache. To my surprise it was a hit with adults as well as teenagers! Easy to prepare and made early in the day before guests arrived, then baked. As a volunteer food editor for Taste of Home I enjoy making dishes that impress on flavor!"
"This was delicious and went fast. I will make a double batch next time. I am not a big fan of basil, so I used Italian seasoning instead."
"Amazing! Used pita chips since they're more sturdy."
"O.k. I wasn't crazy about the basil. Might add a little less next time. Or not at all."
"It was fabulous, my guests scraped the bottom clean."
"Every time we have spinach in the house I make this dip. I add some crushed red pepper flakes to it to add a little kick."
"I absolutely loved this! I made this for a family get-together and it was a hit. What was left my grandma asked if she could keep. It had to be something special to impress grandma!"
"Awesome recipe! The flavor was great! I will definitely be making this again :)"
"This was delicious...didn't change a thing...Will definitely make again."
"Made this for a meeting and it was met with rave reviews. Everyone requsted the recipe. Looked good, smelled good, tasted good."
"This recipe was delicious and I'll be making it again for a luncheon. Thought just a couple drops of Tabasco might give it a little kick. Think I'll try that next time."
"I made this recipe with marinated artichoke hearts and I used 5-cheese italian blend in place of the mozarella. It was delicious and we will be having this again. I made it as a side dish for dinner instead of an appetizer. Loved it."
"Fantastic recipe. I also used the marinate artichokes with ritz crackers as an appitizer for dinner. The leftover marinade from the artichokes is a great addition to a salad. Everyone in the family loved it."
"I have made this recipe a few times and every time it is a hit. The last time, I added a little extra high quality parmesan. It gave it a little extra zip. It goes great with homemade toasted garlic pita chips."
"PS I also used marinated artichoke hearts rather than canned because that was what I had on hand. Very good! Try it, you won't be disappointed!"
"I used reduced fat cream cheese, reduced fat mayonaise,fresh spinach,topped it with parmesean cheese and provolone rather than mozzarella and broiled it for a couple of minutes at the end of baking to brown the cheese some. Very yummy and with all of the same great taste."
"add dried red pepper flakes for a bit of a kick"
"Double the cream cheese and no mozarella cheese or sour cream"
