I make this all the time and people are always requesting a copy of the recipe. I do add 1 teasp. minced garlic, 2 more tablespoons of mayo than called for in the recipe and I use 4 green onions instead of leek. Everyone loves this one and it is so easy to make.Read More
Just ok.....I was expecting better, the taste was good but my guests thought it was too watery as did I. I have a fabulous hot artichoke dip recipe that I usually make, saw this one and thought....what a fabulous spin on the orignal dip....think I will stick with the plain artichoke recipe. Sorry!Read More

I really liked this recipe, but when I took it to a New Year's Eve party it didn't get eaten very quickly. I loved the way the artichokes and peppers made the dip so hearty and the marinade on the artichokes was yummy......I think the reason that it didn't get eaten is because it doesn't look very pretty. It almost looked like a funky salsa or something, but I would serve it again at my own home so that I could explain what it was and I think it would go over better. ~~~~~~~ I made this again for a smaller get together and it was gone before anything else.....I loved it, and when I could tell people what it was they really enjoyed....
So, I really changed this recipe b/c I wasn't sure what we'd be in the mood for. Diced the red peppers, and chopped up ONE can of artichoke hearts. I then added one 8 oz pkg of cream cheese, softened, 3/4 c. mont. jack cheese, 3 cloves garlic, 1/4 c. grated parmesan cheese, 1 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper, 1 c. mayo and 1 Tbsp dried minced onion. I tossed all of this in the food processor and ground the heck out of it. Threw it in the oven for 20 minutes @ 350. Served with Pita Chips (recipe from this site) and an assortment of fresh veggies. My guests could not get enough, and had to force themselves to stop eating, so as to have room for dinner! Even my picky picky 9 year old gobbled it up, and has requested we have it again tonight. The artichokes really set this apart, and it's just such a pretty dish to set on the table.
I make this recipe for all of our get togethers. It's definitely a favorite! I substitute green onions for the leek though. Also, make sure to only use real mayo, fat free won't blend properly.
Very tasty and a great alternative to the traditional artichoke/parmesan/mayo dip. Very colorful. My first experience with leeks - now I'm a big leek fan. They can be substituted for onions when you don't want such a huge onion-y taste.
This dip is delicious! I brought it to a pool party yesterday and I received rave reviews! Very tasty. I would cut up the artichokes and red peppers next time, the chunks were very large for a dip. Otherwise, awesome!
This was a great appetizer for my dinner party. I put it together a day ahead and just heated it up. Served with a variety of crackers, this dish goes very quickly. Even my 14 year old who turned his nose at the thought of an artichoke liked this one. It's sooooo easy, but tastes and looks like you really worked hard.
I made this dip for a party and instead of putting it in an 8x8 dish I cut the top off of a red pepper and stuffed it in there I will be using an orange on for a halloween party . It was very good
Excellent Recipe!!!! I served it with multi-grained crackers. I swear the dip was gone within 15 minutes of me setting it out with my other appetizers. Kids really didn't care for it which was fine, more for the adults. Served it for 30 adults and would recommend doubling recipe for this size of crowd.
used this for a family get together and it was a little zippy for a few people, but everybody else loved it! Thanks for sharing.
This is a tasty dip that is absolutely hideous looking. I added onions, granulated garlic, pepper sauce ("red hot"), salt, and pepper during the saute to add more flavor (it needs it). Everyone agreed it tasted wonderful, but looked gross. This would serve as a great stuffing for peppers or tomatoes.
This was delicious. I love to make appetizers. I made this at a party and everyone wanted the recipe. It is probably one of the most requested recipes of all. The roasted peppers give the dip a great flavor. I couldn't really taste the leek.
I substitute plain yogurt for the mayonnaise to cut back on the fat...just as delish!
MUST TRY. This is a super-tasting, super-easy recipe. Thaks Eileen. Ive made this several times already and its a hit. Very tasty and not too cheesy
Made for first time at my Christmas party, and was not disappointed! Increased mayo by a few Tbsps and used the green onions instead of leeks, as suggested by others, and it was the most praised of the 5 appetizers I served. People were "swooning" over it! This is now at the top of my "favorites" list!!
I made this for a Thanksgiving appetizer. It was a hit. Even my super picky husband - who caught me adding the mayo and threatened not to try it - loved it and asked me to add it to the repeat list.
Roasted red peppers make this COLORFUL!! : ) It's kind of chucky, which was great because you don't fish around in a bunch of sauce to find an artichoke and it is easy to scoop on cracker. It is a SURE FIRE crowd pleaser.
You won't be dissapointed! This was a great recipe. I used fresh peppers and roasted them myself, but either way, it's a wonderful dish.
Wonderful, wonderful!!! With a couple of additions to this recipe, I get rave reviews from everyone who samples this wonderful dish! I added a couple cloves of minced garlic, 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese, Hot sauce to taste (I used Cholulu brand), and red pepper flakes to taste. I like a little snap to this recipe.
This review comes from an artichoke lover. I made it for Christmas Day and everyone ate it until it was gone. So happy to have a new Artichoke Dip recipe. Thank you.
YUMMY YUMMY! I added some minced garlic to the oil and also added some extra mayo. The extra mayo was a little too much - I'll try the recommended amount next time - cause there will definitly be a next time for this dish!!! THANKS!
I made this for New Year's Day party and it was a hit. Per other reviewers, I added 1 tsp garlic and red pepper flakes. I made sure to drain well, bumped colander in sink till no liquid came out, mine was not watery/oily at all and really looked pretty. (nothing like the picture with the recipe). People who tried it kept saying to other - "You have to try this, it is so delicious".
Just ok.....I was expecting better, the taste was good but my guests thought it was too watery as did I. I have a fabulous hot artichoke dip recipe that I usually make, saw this one and thought....what a fabulous spin on the orignal dip....think I will stick with the plain artichoke recipe. Sorry!
Served this for card night and everyone loved it. No leftovers, so that tells what everyone thought of it!
This was really good! I love artichokes steamed and I really like roasted red peppers, but they didn't taste as good as I thought they would together. Still it's a great recipe! Thank you for offering it Eileen!
I made it for a potluck at work and it turn out really well. My place smelled really wonderfull. I also brought it over for Thanksgiving and people seem to really like it, I was surprised that it was not spicy at all.
Holy cow!!! I have make this twice so far and both times it has been a huge hit. It was perfect with a glass of wine and crackers on a summer evening. Everyone really enjoyed it.
This is AMAZING! We would give it 6 stars if we could!! Since we had fresh artichokes around, we used them instead of canned hearts. We used 9 baby-sized ones, and then used the leaves for dipping, which was great. We also used 2 large red peppers which we roasted ourselves, instead of buying the already roasted ones in bottle. This is soooooooo good! We'll definitely make it again.
There was a feeding frenzy when I served this at my last party!
A great variation of the traditional artichoke dip. This dip did not last long at my party!
It was all-right but there was a lot of this left over at Christmas; I did modify it some. I used a red bell pepper that I saute'd lightly, a bit more mayo and skipped the butter, seasonings (garlic/pepper/salt/cayenne). I also added one can of chopped water chestnuts for crunch . I wanted it to be cheesier like the hot spinach/artichoke dips you get at Chili's restaurant but this just tasted like hot veg. with mayo imo... I think it had most of all what it needed but maybe I'd add a cup of mozzarella to it!
WOW! Made just as written, but substituted lite sour cream for mayo and 4 green onions for leek. This literally disappeared within ten minutes after I put it out. A double batch has been requested for the upcoming 4th of July party. Thanks for the recipe, Eileen!
This is WONDERFUL! I used green onion, c'yan pepper, cream cheese and garlic as suggested by other reviewers. I coursely chopped the peppers and artichokes and added coursely chopped green onion tops for contrasting color. It was a pleasing presentation and a devine taste! I will make this again and again! Thanks for sharing!
great!! and so very quick to make. i always add some dried chili flakes for spice
This recipe was pretty good. It tasted very similar to the spinach artichoke recipe I have but that may have been because I used shallots instead of leek. I will try it again and buy the leek. Used more parm than it called for cause we like cheese! Thanks for the recipe.
This was delicious! I added 1/2 Cup Monterrey Jack Cheese as others had recommended. I couldn't find jars of roasted red peppers, so I also did my own - which was MUCH easier than I expected. I used 2 Red Peppers - cut in half lengthwise, clean out seeds, place on broiler pan. I drizzled Olive Oil over the top, broiled, turning every 1.5-2 minutes until the tops were charred. I immediately placed them in a brown paper bag to cool. When I was ready, I simply peeled the skins off and voila - I had roasted red peppers! I took the leftovers and mixed them with brown rice. I then had a couple of lunches on wheat tortilla wraps - wonderful!
This was a big hit at my New Year's Eve party. Everyone seemed to enjoy it, I will def. make it again, thanks!
This was my first artichoke dip I ever made. I used pre-grated parmesan cheese which was ok but next time I will shred fresh parmesan. Everyone enjoyed the dip and I was asked for the recipe. I served with wheat crackers and it was delicious.
This tasted good, but it came out really oily.
This is an excellent dip to serve at parties. It was gone in less than 45 minutes!! Great recipe!
It was good! I liked that it's lots of artichoke and red pepper chunks - not too cheesy.
AWESOME! I made this for a wine and cheese party last night. All recipes used different cheeses. This was fantastic! I made a double recipe and there were no leftovers! I'm KNOW I will be making this to take to future parties. Really good and not too cheesey, but had great flavor. Served with Lahvosh flat bread.
This recipe is a definite KEEPER! Took it to my in-laws for an appetizer before dinner. I made it the night before, refrigerated it and then re-heated it just before serving. Delicious and easy -- a real crowd pleaser!
gives the usual artichoke dip a little more flavor. good change
This was great!!!!! Everyone loved it!! After baking it I placed it in a small crock pot to keep it warm. Thanks!!!
Big hit and very easy!!!
Absolutely delicious! Grocery store didn't have leeks so I used an onion instead. Next time I'll double the recipe because this doesn't make much. Barely enough to cover bottom of 8x8 pan.
Fantastic dip!! I decreased the butter to 1 Tbl. (was plenty!), and used light mayonnaise - worked out fine! I also added 1 clove of garlic, minced, which was key, and added another leek (I love them!). Serve with tortilla chips. Thanks for the recipe!
this was good. i put it in the blender to make it smooyh.
I have always loved artichoke dips. This recipe is the best, I have ever tried and was by way the easiest to prepare. Thanks for sharing it with me. Doc
My kids, 13 and 11, love this. I use part marinated artichokes and part artichoke crowns in water for a little less oil. Tasty flavors.
I made a half portion to try before taking to a hooliday party. used green onion instead of eek. I added some crushed red pepper for kick. Served on brushetta toasts. It was great
This was much sweeter than I anticipated. I was hoping for something a bit more savory. Even with an added dash of cayenne pepper, I found this a bit too sweet for my liking, but good if that's what you are looking for.
I loved this recipe, I served it with sesame flat bread. I think the next time I will add some hot peppers as well. This dish longs to be a little spicey.
A wonderfully zesty dip. I served it with cracked pepper crackers, and there wasn't a crumb left!
Excellent. I used a jar of roasted red peppers w/ garlic cloves and used red onion instead of the leek. Took it to a party and it got great reviews. Also good w/ tortilla chips. Will definitely make again.
Excellent! I didn't have a leek so I used chopped green onions instead.
This was wonderful! Other reviewers noted that this was not a very pretty-looking dish, but we thought it was bright and colorful! Instead of buying the jar of peppers, I just roasted 3 small ones myself. To cut down on the grease that the marinated artichokes can have, I used the canned variety. The smell was wonderful and our guests devoured it within minutes!
Made a few minor changes (just can't help myself!)...used green onions instead of leek and added a small garlic clove. I roasted my own red peppers and added about an ounce of cream cheese. Yum Yum! Rave reviews from the party I took it to. Thanks for the recipe :-)
I cook A LOT and this is definitely the recipe that I have received the most comments on - it disappears fast and I always double and triple the recipe. The only alteration I've done is to grill my own red peppers. It's cheaper and adds a really fresh flavor.
First I have to say that this recipe is excellent how it is. I did alter it however the second time around. I added six green onions instead of the leek, and added 5 large minced garlic cloves. These changes made it perfect for my tastes and my family as well. I also tried it with tortilla chips, pita chips, toasted pita bread, but my favorite was wrapping it in some warmed tortillas. I have made this several times in the last couple of months, and it has been a success every time.
I served this warm at a party and boy was it a hit! People are still talking about how good it was! I really recommend it-- very tasty.
Took this to a barbeque last evening, and it was gone in a flash!! Unusual for me not to make ANY changes -- this is great, just as written! Thanks for a KEEPER!!
I've made this a dozen times and there is everyone loves it and asks me for the recipe. Great marriage of flavors - even better the next day.
Great recipe served on crostini! I made it the day ahead and baked the day of the party. I'm always looking for good recipes that I can do ahead for a party, and this one fit the bill perfectly.
Very Very good! I added mushrooms ..... it was delicious! Thank you!
I made this for a cocktail party and it was a huge hit. People asked for the recipe and it was gone rather quickly. I served it with thin baguette slices and crackers. I agree that it looks kind of ugly, I think I will work on more attractive presentation when I make it again this weekend.
This is an excellent recipe as given.
Very good, thanks. I think I'll add red pepper flakes next time, like one of the other reviewers suggested. It could have used a little more zing, but I'll definitely make it again.
Not a bad recipe, but just not my thing. I think I would just stick with a regular old spinach dip instead. I just didn't like the blend of flavors too much (and I love artichokes and roasted red peppers), and I don't think my guests did either....I had a lot left over. Thanks anyway!
This turned out great at a party with friends. Everyone wanted the recipe.
I served this to company on pumpernickel bread and triskets. We loved it!
Good and easy too.
Great recipe! I wouldn't change a thing.
Easy and delicious! Better carry this recipe in your pocket because everyone will ask for it. Sure to be a hit.
This was a big hit. Served with quarters of small pita pockets. I reduced the serving size to 10, that was a mistake. I had such a small bowl of dip for 10 people I was almost two embarrassed to put it out. Keep the serving size at 32 if you are planning it for a sizable gathering.
Absolutely fabulous. I make this all the time because everyone is always asking me to bring it to their parties and to e-mail them the recipe. Huge hit! I double the recipe and the bowl is always practically licked clean. Thanks Eileen!
I always get rave reviews whenever I make this. I use shallot instead of leek. It's great either warm or room temp.
I've made this several times for dinner parties, and never changed a thing. I think it's fantastic. It's true that it's not as cheesy and creamy as some hot dips, but that's actually one of the things I like about it: when you're eating this one, you feel a little more like you're eating actual vegetables, and not just hot cream cheese on a cracker. (Not that there's anything at all wrong with hot cream cheese on a cracker, mind you!) I do think that it's important with this one to use real (and preferably freshly grated) parmesean, the best that you can find or afford; the powdered stuff in the green box won't have a strong enough flavor and won't melt or brown properly.
Took this to a church potluck and it was a big hit. Full of taste; don't need a lot per cracker. Couldn't find a leek so used a bunch of green onions; think it would have been even better with the leek. If you use good quality, fresh grated parmesan, as I did, you probably could use a bit less, maybe 1/2 cup. But overall this was a winner. Will definitely be making it again.
The best! I added a little more mayo than called for to thicken it based on other reviews. I also added some minced garlic. I have made it for three parties now, and everyone raves about it. I agree that it is not the most attractive dip. I transfer it to a small chili crock and it seems to make it appear a little more attractive. If your not sure if you should try this recipe, you should! Thanks Eileen!
I added 1/8 cup chopped scallions and omitted the butter & leek, just due to calories & ease of preparation. I also added 1 tsp garlic powder and used a total of 1/3 cup of mayonaise. I brought this to a New Year's Eve party last night where there was a lot of food and this was the only dish that was completely eaten.
Yum! I used Muenster Cheese instead of the Parmesean and it turned out great. I used pieces of bagel to scoop up the dip. Great recipe!
VERY good and simple to make!
I recently brought this to a party and the bowl was licked clean, with many requests for the recipe.
Great with salty Ritz crackers.
I didn't make of the changes that were suggested - we found the original recipe to be very boring & not cheesey enough
Unfortunately this recipe was just okay. I thought it was too oily, and it needed something more - a little bland. I thought 3/4 cup of cheese would be plenty but it wasn't creamy at all and I couldn't really taste the cheese in the dip.
I made this for my husband on Valentine's day and we LOVED it. I wanted to make a special dinner tonight and we couldn't get this recipe out of our heads. It took me 15 minutes to find it again but you can bet this time I won't lose it. It's definitely worth a try
Fabulous! I followed this recipe, using my own roasted red peppers, but also added 1/2 cup cheese(you want something with a bite).I used aged cheddar and a few slices crumbled jalapeno havarti. I also added 2 cloves minced garlic, and used regular Hellmanns mayo. I didn 't find it neccessary to increase this from the 3 Tablespoons called for.
Didn't last ten minutes at my party and I doubled the recipe. Had a few friends request the recipe. Will be making this again.
I was trying to match a restaurant recipe (from Racines in Denver, CO) so I took out the leek and substituted cream cheese for the mayo. It was delicious and very close to the restaurant. You need to add more cream cheese than mayo though to make it creamy, about 1/2 cup for a halved recipe, and around 1 cup for then full recipe. Just eyeball it. Also I'd suggest roasting your own red peppers, I used one full pepper for the halved recipe.
This recipe was just okay. Very bland. I even followed the one reviewer's suggestion to add garlic, which would have given this dish even more flavor. Not sure what it needed, but it was definitely lacking in the flavor department.
This is my new favorite dip. I added a clove of garlic in with the leeks, and I accidentally used 12 oz. of roasted peppers, but I thought the amount was perfect! I like this much better than the creamy versions. Served with baked pita chips.
this was to excellent. I almost ate the whole dish myself. This could be put into a food-processor and made into a dip.
Absolutely yummy! It was easy to make and tasted great. It was a little runny though, I might try to add more mayo next time to thicken it.
Yummy!!!! Everyone always requests me to bring along this dish to family gatherings. I serve it with pita bread sliced into little triangles, the best dip I have ever tasted
I adjusted the recipe to make 45 servings when I was printing it out, it fit perfectly in a glass 9inch pie dish. This was requested by many people at my son's birthday. Very good and simple to make. A keeper!
Very good recipe! I added some cayenne pepper to make it spicy, along with some shredded Monterey Jack cheese. Very yummy when it's warm!
