Recipe - Artichoke Dip

Do you need a quick appetizer to take to a party?  Perhaps you need something easy to make before your holiday dinner.  This is a no-fail, quick, hot Artichoke dip that you will love.

Artichoke Dip
1 – 8 oz. package of (less fat) cream cheese, softened
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup shredded Asiago cheese
1 clove garlic, pressed
1 Tablespoon dill or dill blend seasoning
1 can artichoke hearts (not marinated), drained and chopped
1/2 lemon zest (optional)
1 t lemon juice (optional)
4-5 drops hot sauce (I use Cholula brand)

Mix softened cream cheese with remaining ingredients.  Put into small baking dish; bake 350 until bubbly, approx. 30 – 40 min.
Serve with crackers, veggies or French bread.

  • This recipe can easily be doubled.
  • VARIATION:  For a southwestern twist on artichoke dip, add 1 small can of chopped, mild green chiles.  Omit the lemon juice and zest.
  • This recipe can be made a day ahead.  Mix the ingredients, place in baker, cover and refrigerate.  Bake prior to serving.
