I got this recipe over 10 years ago from a friend at work. Since then, I have always had to make a double recipe for Thanksgiving. There is never any left. Just grab a few crackers and start dipping! I have only made this with an electric skillet. Also, I use the artichokes that are already quartered as they mix more easily than bigger chunks. Fat-free or low-fat mayonnaise is okay and helps reduce the fat content of the dip.
