Artichoke and Crab Spread


I bought a similar spread at the grocery store a while back, and I thought that I could do it better and cheaper myself. You can use imitation crab, instead of the real thing if you like. I use cooked and frozen artichoke hearts or you can buy fresh artichokes, and cook the hearts up yourself.

  2. Pour dip into a non-metallic bowl, and chill for 1 hour.
