Spinach & Artichoke dip....with Halloween chips

 My family loves spinach & artichoke dip.  Every time we go out to dinner, if the restaurant has it, they order it.

In my opinion they all skimp on the artichoke.  Probably a way to keep production cost down.  Well, my family deserves better than skimpy dip.

There are many different versions of Spinach & Artichoke dip available.  I searched high and low for the perfect dip but couldn't settle on one......so I made my own recipe.  Why not, right?

It was a HUGE hit in my house.  Instead of keeping it all to myself, I thought I would share it with you all. After all, everyone deserves good dip.

It is perfect for Sunday football or just game night with the kids.

I picked up some Halloween colored chips at the store......they just went perfect with the dip and made it look all Halloween-ish.
