Artichoke, Chiles & Spinach Dip

Dipping duh

Of the many dips I like to make, this one always hits the spot, even though I have not made it in some time. When I did recently during Mardi Gras, many friends and family asked for the recipe. Yeah, it's a repeat as I told you then, it's already on my blog.... meaning, you can find it if you do the search thingy either by typing in the name or an ingredient in the search bar or even if you go to the trouble and look it up under 'Mexican Dips', at my 'Recipe Index' page.

Okay. I know that is a lot to ask. I know you will not do it. I know you will continue to hound me until I give it up so here it is......again. Enjoy!

  2. You know, in all the times I've made a spinach artichoke dip, it's never crossed my mind to include hot peppers. You're a genius and this will be my new recipe. Many thanks (again).
