Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip

Pin It

As I've said in the past, I'm usually in charge of making appetizers when we have family gatherings. I really don't mind since there are so many different things I want to try, and I don't really get a chance to when I'm cooking dinner at home on a normal weeknight. I'm a "dip" girl and love trying out new recipes that are accompanied by chips, crackers or chunks of bread.

Spinach and Artichoke Dip is an instant classic and very easy to prepare. Since mostly everyone likes it, it would be perfect to bring to your next holiday party. You can even make it the day before if you're short on time and then heat it up right before.  I even healthified this recipe so you can eat scoop after scoop without all the added guilt. Enjoy!
