Be prepared—you'll likely need to make a double batch of Kathy Beldorth's delightful dip. "One is never enough when we have a get-together," she details from Three Oaks, Michigan. "It tastes great with just about any vegetable , so you can use whatever you have on hand as dippers."

"I first tasted this warm, well-flavored dip at our daughter's house—and immediately asked for the recipe," relates Ramona Larson, a homemaker from Andover, Minnesota. Since then, she's served it herself at family gatherings. "Everyone who tries it comes back for more," she reports. If you'd like, you can place the dip in a hollowed-out-artichoke, just like our kitchen crafters did. Or keep it in the dish you bake it in—either way, it'll heat up any setting.
