Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip

"This tasty appetizer is similar to the version served in restaurants, but it has a fresh homemake flavor that keeps everyone dipping," remarks Cathy Carroll from Grayson, Louisiana. "It's a cheesy scrumptious snack that always results in recipe requests."

    This was quick to make, but not our favorite version of the famous dip. The consistency was not what we expected, not as creamy as we normally like.

    I have made this many times...I add a half pound of crab and it works just fine....The thing for some to remember is that a cup of cheese is 4 oz. not 8 oz. as with liquid mesurements...

    I make this recipe often and it's always a hit. The issue regarding the cheese... it calls for 8oz of each cheese listed equaling 2 cups. This is very convenient to put in a crock pot at a party and always tasty.

    I can usually understand what is required in a recipe. This one is a stumper. 2 cups or 8 oz of cheese? It made an ooey- gooey mess using 2 cups of cheese. I am going to try and save it by combining another recipe. Please make it easy to understand.

    May not taste exactly like a restaurant, but it was delicious. I got lots of compliments and it was the only appetizer at the shower that was nearly gone! Also, super easy and quick to make.

    I was disappointed in this recipe. it was nothing like some of the artichoke spinach dips I have had. I will keep looking for a good one.
