Spinach & Artichoke Dip

Do you have an upcoming party or get-together that you need to make an appetizer for?  Actually…it doesn’t have to be soon…do you EVER take an appetizer to parties?  Actually…it doesn’t have to be a party…do you want to eat delicious food?!

This dip is ridiculously good, y’all.  No joke.  I could seriously just camp out with a whole box of crackers and the entire bowl of this dip, and go to town.  I might be a fatty covered in cracker crumbs and little pieces of spinach in my teeth, but I’d be one happy gal.  I didn’t do that, though (at least…not with the WHOLE bowl of dip).  I made this dip for my in-laws at dinner last week, and it was a big hit.  There is probably no one who wouldn’t like this dip.  Even people who are not big spinach/artichoke fans will probably still like it because of all the gooey cheese and salty crackers!  The veggies really give it more texture than flavor.  I also liked that this dip only took 30 minutes total to prepare and cook.  It was super convenient since I only had about that much time between getting home from work and heading over to our little dinner party.

By the way, I gotta give a shout-out to my parents for giving me this awesome chip/dip platter.  The dip part in the center has a warming bowl that you plug in underneath it so it keeps your dip warm and melty.  Genius!  Thanks Mom and Dad!
