A-Freaking-Mazing Artichoke Dip

I don’t necessarily agree with the name of this recipe. 🙂 I thought it was good, but not that good. This didn’t take that long to make, and was super easy to throw together. I thought it turned out okay, but others said it was really good. With a name like that, I expected to be wowed. I wasn’t wowed.

A-Freaking-Mazing Artichoke Dip
(http://www.joyfulabode.com/)

Ingredients:

8 oz. Cream Cheese
A dollop of sour cream – maybe ¼ – ⅓ cup
A dollop of mayonnaise – about ¼ cup
About a cup of chopped spinach (either fresh, cooked, or frozen, thawed)
2 cans or jars of artichoke hearts (in water, not marinated), drained and roughly chopped
Garlic salt to taste
Chili powder
½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
A handful of shredded mozzarella cheese for the top

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Warm the cream cheese in the microwave for 2 minutes on 50% heat to soften it. Pre-microwaving the cream cheese will help you mix it with the other ingredients, so I recommend not skipping this step.
Mix all ingredients in a baking dish.
Be generous with the chili powder! The cream cheese and sour cream will act to “cool” the dip, so you can sprinkle away with the chili!
Bake 30-45 minutes until heated through.
Sprinkle on a bit more mozzarella, then broil until the cheese is browned.
