Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip

This dip is a favorite appetizer for any occasion!

1 package cream cheese (8 oz.)

1 can (14 oz.) Artichoke Hearts, drained and coarsely chopped

½ cup frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained well

¼ cup mayonnaise

½ cup parmesan cheese, grated

1 clove garlic, finely minced

½ tsp dry basil or 1 Tbsp fresh basil

¼ cup mozzarella cheese, grated

¼ tsp garlic salt

Salt and pepper to taste

Soften cream cheese. Cream together cream cheese, mayonnaise, parmesan cheese, garlic, basil, and garlic salt. Mix well. Add the artichoke hearts and spinach and mix until blended. Store in a refrigerated container until ready to use. Spray pie pan (ceramic or glass looks nice!) with Pam and pour dip in, then top with mozzarella cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until the top is browned. Serve with bread, crackers, and tortilla chips, or even fresh vegetables.
