Just a girl in the world...of culinary adventures! I'm beginning culinary academy in the fall, but will be doing a LOT of work before then to get myself ready for this. _____________________

This is a blog of my journey to change my life.

A-Freaking-Mazing Artichoke Dip

Ingredients:

  • 8 oz. Cream Cheese, warmed in the microwave for 2 minutes on 50% heat to soften it – (Even if you’re making your dip in the oven, pre-microwaving the cream cheese will help you mix it with the other ingredients, so I recommend not skipping this step.)
  • A dollop of sour cream – maybe 1/4 – 1/3 cup
  • A dollop of mayonnaise – about 1/4 cup
  • About a cup of chopped spinach (either fresh, cooked, or frozen, thawed)
  • 2 cans or jars of non-marinated artichoke hearts, roughly chopped
  • Garlic salt
  • Chili powder – be generous! The cream cheese and sour cream will act to “cool” the dip, so you can sprinkle away with the chili!
  • A handful of shredded mozzarella cheese

Directions:

Mix all ingredients in a baking dish, and sprinkle on a bit more mozzarella, then broil until the cheese is browned.

Try it with:

  1. Zero-Carb Homemade Baked Cheese Crisps
  2. Carrot sticks
  3. Celery sticks
  4. Strips of raw bell peppers
  5. Pork rinds
  6. A spoon
  7. Homemade cheese crisps
  8. Slices of turnips, jicama, or large radishes
