This is one of those dips that is great for a crowd of people. I love it because it’s super easy to make (5 minutes prep!) and if you bake it in the dish you mix it in, there’s only one thing to clean up afterwards! It’s one of my favorites and is always a crowd pleaser. I went to an awesome New Year’s blogger party last night at Sodalicious hosted by Natashia (canaryjane.com) and brought this with me. I had such a fun evening meeting other bloggers, making cards for the Children’s Miracle Network, and making a cute New Year’s banner using paper from My Mind’s Eye. The awesome Cricut ladies helped me cut out my banner using the fabulous Cricut Explore™ Air Gold machine (you can see my banner in the picture below). My husband told me when I was leaving, make sure you bring me any leftovers. Well, sadly for him it was wiped out! This yummy dip also won me the cutest dress from Agnes & Dora in the appetizer contest. It’s definitely one you’ll want to make for all your parties.
Hot Artichoke and Green Chile Dip
1 can (14.5 oz) quartered artichoke hearts (drained)
1 can (4.5 oz) diced green chilis
3/4 cup light mayo (I like Best Foods/Hellman’s)
1 (8 oz) block light cream cheese, softened (Neufchatel)
1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
Mix together all the ingredients in a large bowl or in a casserole dish. Bake at 300 for 25-30 minutes until warmed through, slightly golden brown and bubbling. Serve warm with corn chips (my favorite), sliced baguettes or crackers of your choice.
