Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip

Ingredients:

14 oz chopped frozen spinach
1- 14 oz can Artichoke hearts
8 oz brick cream cheese
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon finely minced garlic
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon salt

Method:

1: Prepare frozen spinach according to package directions. Once cooled enough to handle, squeeze out excess liquid so that you have moist but not dripping spinach. Set aside.

2: Drain and rinse artichoke hearts. Rough chop into bite sized pieces. Combine with spinach. Set aside.

3: Place cream cheese in a microwave bowl and put into the microwave for 1 minute on high to soften.

4: Add sour cream, mayonnaise, garlic, Parmesan cheese, red pepper flakes and salt to cream cheese. Stir well.

5: Stir spinach and artichokes into the cream cheese mixture.

6: At this point you can either refrigerate until you are ready to serve and heat it later or heat, covered, in the microwave on high for 3 to 5 minutes until hot and bubbly.

Serve immediately…
