I have made this three times in a month, now. I use all low / no fat cream cheese and mozzerella cheese, and I just use one large can of artichoke hearts (not marinated in oil -- or 1 can + one jar of the marinated ones if making for company. I used low fat cream cheese and sour cream. The one way I disguise the low fat nature of this is to add a package of dry veggie soup mix (or your fave), and usually I add spinach that I've briefly steamed. It's one point on Weight Wacher's if made this way. LOVE to keep on hand to spread on a pita or roll into a slice of ham with a fist full of spinach leaves. YUM!
This was a huge hit at a brunch we hosted on Memorial Day. Since one guest is allergic to everything in the scallion family, I used red onion instead of green. It tasted great and added a little color. The only other deviation was using 2 whole jalapenos since we enjoy spicy foods. The pita chips were the perfect dippers. Thanks for sharing this fantastic version of a classic!
Very good! I had this recipe for a while and decided to do it for a family gathering. It was tangy and delicious. I followed the recipe exactly and made the pita triangles to accompany it. All here loved it. I was sorry that I'd halved it instead of the full recipe. Thanks!
I was about to post this recipe myself. This is the BEST artichoke dip BY FAR. I have tried many and this wins hands down!! The jalapeno and onions really add some extra punch and set this recipe apart from all the others out there. This recipe makes a fair amount, but it's easily halved for smaller groups (but you'll regret that!).
Made this recipe the night before serving, stored in fridge until baking. The only change I made was to substitute a whole, seeded chipotle chili for the fresh jalapeno. Everything else teh same. It was fantastic! Truly. I served this tonight to a group of ECPTA women, who have artichoke dip at EVERY meeting and gathering, and they RAVED over it! I have 4 requests for the recipe; it was that well received. Love, love, love it, MadzMom! Thank you very much!
The dip was excellent! Big hit with family & friends gathering's. It was easy to make; also tastes great served at room temperature. On occasions, I have added spinach to the recipe and if pita bread was not available "hearty" tortilla, corn, etc chips worked well.
