Recipe Swap Monday- Memorial Day!!!

Since I know along with 3 day holiday weekends come a lot of traveling and if you are anything like my family a lot of bbq's so I decided to post a simple and quick dip recipe that is a crowd pleaser at all our gatherings. :)

Spinach and Artichoke Dip

1 box frozen chopped spinach, thawed
1 c. sour cream
1/2 c. grated parmesan
1 c. shredded part skim mozzarella
8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
4-6 cloves garlic, chopped or pressed
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. hot pepper sauce
1 (14oz) can artichoke hearts, drained

  • Squeeze all excess liquid from spinach, place in a food processor with sour cream, parmesan, 1/2 c. mozzarella, cream cheese, garlic, pepper, and hot sauce.
  • Process until just blended but still slightly lumpy. Add artichokes and pulse to form a chunky mixture.
  • Place in a 1 quart baking dish. Top with remaining mozzarella. Bake until bubbly, about 30 mins.
I like to serve with sour dough bread or tortilla chips

    Happy Memorial Day!
