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.
