The Best Spinach-Artichoke Dip

I LOVE spinach dip and Costco carries a pretty dang good one, but I like making my own too.

This recipe is FANTASTIC! You can use frozen spinach, but it comes out so much yummier with fresh :)

With Thanksgiving just around the corner it's time to start thinking about appetizer ideas. This dip can be made the day before and warmed in a smaller crockpot, leaving you with no last minute prep. Hooray!

Spinach Artichoke Dip

8 oz cream cheese
1/2 c. sour cream
1/2 c. mayo
6.5 oz jar artichoke hearts, drained
4 oz can diced green chilis
1 c. shredded Italian cheese
10 oz fresh spinach

Cook spinach in a covered saucepan with a small amount of water until done. Drain well. Combine all ingredients in a saucepan or microwavable bowl and cooking until hot and cheeses are melted. Serve on french bread (my fave), bagels or with tortilla chips.
