This recipe is super! However, instead of making a spread, I used this to make artichoke dip for tortilla chips and Italian bread. In doing so, I skipped the food processor and coarse chopped the artichoke hearts by hand and used a garlic press for the garlic...it was fairly simple...took a whole 5 minutes extra. Then I mixed the ingredients together right in the baking dish. I also used marinated artichoke hearts since the recipe did not specify and it turned out great. I did change the oven temperature to 350 and baked for 20 minutes because I wanted a slower cooking to help the flavors mingle together. It turned out very flavorful and creamy...not greasy at all. Great recipe! P.S. I used FRESH grated parmesan cheese...not the salt licks in a green can! Read More

We enjoyed this. I used fat free cream cheese and mayo (I am sure the full fat ingredients would be even tastier). I am not a big fan of dill so I replaced it with oregano and I am happy I did. If I were to make any changes to this recipe I would only puree half the artichokes and chop the rest and maybe top it with a little shredded cheese before baking. Read More

I receive compliments and a clean dish every time I make this recipe. The good news is you don't need a blender or food processor to make this recipe. I used a hand-held electric mixer to blend the ingredients together except for the artichoke hearts. Then I chopped the artichoke hearts and used a spoon to mix them into the other ingredients. Quick delicious and easy. Read More

This is so delicious and I have not even heated it up yet! I made this for New Year's Eve tonight and I'm sure it will be a great addition to our appetizer table. It was also very easy to make in my food processor. I can't stop eating it! Read More

This is a really great dish! I took it to a friend's barbeque where it was a huge success. I recommend doubling or tripling it! I did not process the ingredient and instead coarsly chopped the artickokes and mixed all together by hand. This made for bites with bits and pieces of artichoke. Yummy! For a spicy variation try adding a chopped jalapeno or two. Read More

When I'm having company and want an alternative to nacho cheese dip this is the recipe I turn to. I've made it several times and it turns out perfect. I don't have a food processor so I just chop the ingredients it gives it a little more texture. I'm also a artichoke-spinach fan so I always add a thawed package of frozen chopped spinach (or about 2 cups fresh blanched in boiling water and then drained and chopped). It's great served with tortilla chips and "crusty" breads. Read More

This is a really quick and delicious dish. Guests really enjoy it and it also travels well should you be a guest at someone elses party. I did however chop the artichokes rather than processing them. This resulted in bits and pieces of artichoke throughout. Very Yummy! Read More

This was so delicious! I only used half the artichokes and I chopped them instead of processing them. 14 oz of artichokes just seemed like it would be too much. I had only recently tried artichoke dip for the first time at a restaurant. It was so good there that I tried to find a recipe that came close and this one does! The cream cheese and the parmesan really make it creamy and delicious! And it got rave reviews from family and friends. Served with warm herb bread it's to die for! I have also made this using fat free cream cheese and mayo - you can hardly tell the difference! Read More
