  • Very good recipe and easy to make

    My husband wanted me to make this recipe for the Superbowl as it seems like a great party dip. We are fans of spinach-artichoke dip and decided to modify this recipe. I added one 6 oz. jar of marinated artichoke hearts which I chopped up. It was easy and very tasty. I would definitely make it again.
