Overall not a bad recipe. I had a little trouble getting everything to combine, it seemed like there was always a little bit of liquid left that needed to be re-stirred in every so often. I tried to make this in place of a more traditional hot spinach and artichoke dip and I don't think it worked very well for that purpose, but it was very good once I realized I just had the wrong expectations for the recipe. I think it might work really well in a sandwich sometime - I'll give it a try! Thanks for passing the recipe along. (Updated - my mouse must have slipped, I meant to give this 4 stars, not 3. Sorry!)
