    EASY and GREAT! I should have doubled the recipe. I used canned artichokes.

    Oh my! This was unexpectedly outstanding! Very simple and full of flavor. The red pepper gives it that extra special wang. I could not find frozen artichoke hearts so I used a can of artichoke hearts.

    I have made a variation of this for many years. Chop a can of artichoke hearts. Add to the gratin pan along with 1 cup mayo, 1 cup of fresh grated, best quality Parmesan, 1 small can of diced green chilies. Mix and spread in pan, and bake at 375 for 30 minutes or until golden on top. It is my absolute "go to" dip. I serve it at every party and it goes first. I serve it with tortilla chips. It's quick and easy. I put it in the oven about 20 minutes before party is due to start and the house smells amazing when people arrive.

    Oh Yeah! this is one of those go-to dishes we have all done for years and it always get great reveiws, with or without the chilis, onions etc...it lends itself to so many variations. I usually up the garlic content, depending on how well I know my guests' appreciation of the "stinky rose".

    Excellent recipe. Made as a snack before Thanksgiving dinner and everyone filled up on this!

    everyone at the party thought this dish was really good, and it was easy to make! I did not use the reduced fat ingredients, though

    Incredible! Followed recipe exactly except used pita chips instead of bread. Will make again and again!!

    I thought that this recipe was just ok. I made as directed except I put a bit less of the crushed red pepper, thinking it would be too spicy for some of my guests. Instead, it turned out a little bland and perhaps a bit too ookey.

    I always use the marinated artichokes - the big jar from Costco always sits in my fridge for this very reason! Great recipe !!

    This was good and it couldn't be easier to make. My guests loved it! I also appreciate the fact that the recipe produces a reasonable amount.

    I used fat-free mayo, fat-free cream cheese and a can of drained artichoke hearts (couldn't find frozen). Served with pita chips and baguette - awesome and easy!

    Needs a little zip - maybe more spices. Will probably not make again.

    I made a number of variations of this wonderful dip before I came upon the right mix to make the flavors soar. In addition to the canned artichoke, parmesan and mayo, I add a cup of shredded jalapeno jack cheese and a tablespoon each of red and green Tabasco sauce. Sounds like a lot of hot, but with all that cheese and mayo, it is PERFECT!! Your guests will beg for more!

    Ok, so I haven't actually made this recipe. Though I would like to, but... let's substitute half and half for the reduced-calorie mayo. Because, let's face it, hot mayo is gross.

    I wasn't crazy about this dip. It was kind of bland. I have gotten much better recipes on this site.
