Simply Sides 20 - Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip

I was craving spinach and artichoke dip a few weeks ago.  I've never made it, only ordered it out or had it at parties.  I ran across a recipe on Hellmann's mayo website, and tried it out.  It was pretty good, but I have some ideas of how to change it up and make it my own, and I will next time! You can find the original recipe HERE.

Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip

  • 10oz box frozen chopped spinach, thawed
  • 8oz cream cheese (let sit at room temp at least 4 hours or microwave, stirring every 10 seconds)
  • 3/4 cup mayo (I only use Hellmann's, use what you like)
  • 1 and 1/2 cups shredded cheese
  • 1 package Knorr veg mix
  • 1 can artichokes, drained and chopped (I got mine from Trader Joe's)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

Preheat oven to 350
Combine all ingredients except 1/2 cup of cheese.  Mix well then put in baking dish.  Top with remaining cheese. Bake 35 minutes.  Serve with bread cubes or tortilla chips.
