Thanks so much for the recipes Alix and pds.....my family will be in town for several days so I may get a chance to fix these also. If not then I'll reserve them for Christmas.

Make the famous artichoke dip using asparagus instead of artichoke. Really good and very different. Not the dip with the spinach--just artichoke hearts,mayo,parm,garlic.

That sounds like one you can't go wrong with, Alex.

I buy Pace Piquante sauce in the big jug, so I always have some on hand. When someone drops buy, I mix some with sour cream...makes a tasty dip. Packaged Ranch Dressing Mix and sour cream makes a very good quick dip as well. A packet of Knorr vegetable soup mix works great, also.
If you want something spicy, mix a can of chopped green chilis into a block of cream cheese. Add hot sauce to taste.

Gretchen, I make this very same dip and I LOVE it and it's usually the first thing gone at a party. I will have to try the asparagus. I have doubled the recipe before and used 1 can artichokes and 1 can hearts of palm - it's really good! I also like to add some hot sauce.

I take a cup of mayonnaise (no less fat than low fat though), a cup of the green can old-fashioned Parmesan cheese, 1 can drained artichoke hearts and chop, but not too small, a dash of garlic powder, a couple or 14 shakes of hot sauce, mix well and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

I have a fantastic recipe for a hot clam dip passed to me from my mother-in-law.

I see this was posted quite some time ago. If you or anyone are interested, let me know, and I'll print it.
