"Actually, we found this to be too rich. Maybe the artichokes would have cut some of the richness."

"Oh My Goodness! I have been making this recipe for a few years now. I also add 1/4 c. or so of chopped artichokes (from a jar) with a little salt, pepper and garlic powder. It's a quick dip to make and my husband LOVES it!"
