Hot Artichoke Spinach Dip

Recipe by Canuck Mum
READY IN: 15mins
YIELD: 2 cups




  • Put the artichoke hearts and spinach in a microwave-safe bowl, and cover it with plastic wrap. Cut a small slit in the plastic to let the steam out, then microwave on high for 4 minutes. Stir, and zap it again for another 2 to 3 minutes or until the artichoke hearts are tender. If you don't want to use a microwave you can also boil the spinach and artichoke hearts in a cup of water in a small saucepan over medium heat until tender, around 10 minutes. Drain in a colander when done.
  • Heat the cream cheese in a small bowl in the microwave set on high for 1 minutes. Or, use a saucepan to heat the cheese over medium heat just until hot.
  • Add the spinach and artichoke hearts to the cream cheese and stir well.
  • Add the remaining ingredients to the cream cheese and combine. Serve warm with crackers, chips, or toasted bread for dipping.
  • To make a lighter version, use reduced fat cream cheese.
