I love anything w/artichokes! especially yummy hot dips...

I went to party in NO, LA when I was in college! The hostess had some yummy spinach/artichoke dip. I asked her for the recipe and she told me she was friends with the owner of the local Houston's restaurant and it was their recipe! So now I have it and make a batch of it for my mom for Christmas every year! It was my first spinach artichoke dip!

I have never had plain artichoke dip (not that this is 'plain' ) so I can't wait to try it!!

I've always put spinach in mine before too Jenny. But, when I saw this one I just had to try it.

Would you share your recipe with us?

Spinach and Artichoke dip

No problemo, seniorita!!

1 stick butter
2 serving spoon size flour
1 c chicken broth
16 oz sour cream
1/2 pint whipping cream
1/2 lb reggiano or fresh ground parmesan
24 oz frozen spinach, thawed and excess water removed
3/4 lb mozzarella
1 can or bottle of marinated artichoke hearts (not the small bottle) drained

season spinach w/salt, pepper, garlic powder and cayenne (to taste)

melt butter in large pot, add flour to melted butter to make white roux
add chicken broth, sour cream, whipping cream and simmer 1-2 mins over low heat.
add parmesan and stir fully, allowing to melt.
add spinach and artichokes, stir
add mozzarella and stir til melted.

garish w/ cayenne if desired

serve w/ salsa and white corn tortilla chips.

I actually prefer this after is set in fridge overnight...however, I snack on right after it's cooked w/ no complaints!

I am going to make the artichoke dip recipe for superbowl sunday! I know my sis will love it!


OOPS...it freezes quite well!
