Creamy Artichoke Dip with Pita Chips

This recipe is inspired by one I found in 'Bon Appetit' a few years ago. The original recipe came from the Ligonier Tavern in Ligonier, Pennsylvania. I think it's my favorite hot Artichoke Dip recipe yet.

Creamy Artichoke Dip with Pita Chips

2 8-ounces packages cream cheese, room temperature
1/3 cup sour cream
1/4 cup mayonaise (I use Best Foods/Hellmans)
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce, or to taste
3 6-ounce jars marinated artichoke hearts, drained, coarsely chopped
1 cup grated mozzarella cheese (about 2 1/2 ounces)
3 green onions, finely chopped
2 teaspoons minced seeded jalapeno chili (more or less, your choice)

6 6-inch pita rounds, each cut into 6 triangles*
Olive oil

Using electric mixer, beat first 8 ingredients in large bowl to blend. Fold in artichokes, mozzarella cheese, green onions and jalapeno. Transfer to 11x7x2-inch glass baking dish or similarly sized, low oven-proof baking dish. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate.)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees (F). Place pita triangles in single layer on baking sheet. Brush with oil. Sprinkle with salt. Bake until crisp, about 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Maintain oven temperature.

Bake dip until bubbling and brown on top, About 20 minutes. Serve hot dip with pita chips.

Serves 8

*You can use purchased crispy pita chips if you prefer.

Hi Shunka and PA Baker~ I'm getting in the mood for some of those warm dips that I usually don't make in the summertime.

PA, Wow, that is so neat that you've eaten at the Ligonier Tavern! How cool is that?!

I made this for a dinner party and a birthday party we went to last weekend.
Everyone LOVED it.

I added some chopped sweet onion about 1/2 cup and a handful of parmesan cheese
and doubled up on the Worcestershire sauce.

I didn't have any
jalapeno so I had to leave those out.
