The Best Spinach Artichoke Dip!

Trust me you will eat this one up! I suggest making the big batch for wherever you're going and a small side one for yourself because you won't have any leftovers!
  • 1 can artichoke hearts
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 package frozen spinach
  • 1 cup mayonaise
  •  1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • dash of crushed red pepper flakes 
  • 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
  • 1 clove garlic (chopped finely or minced)
  • salt to taste

  • In a large bowl, mix mayo with seasonings, parmesan and lemon juice
  • Thaw the spinach in the microwave and squeeze out the excess water
  • Pour artichokes into strainer and squeeze the excess water out of them
  • Chop artichokes in food processor
  • Add spinach and artichokes to large bowl with everything, mix together well
  • Place in baking pan or bowl and top with shredded pepper jack cheese
  • bake at 350 for 30 minutes
*Serve with wheat thins or crostini's (recipe coming soon!)
*I tripled this recipe for the Christmas Dinner crowd of about 20 people - you'll want to at least double it if it's more than 2 people eating.

And of course, the pictures for you visual learners!
