Hot Artichoke DipRecipe

Although initially served hot, this artichoke dip will stay delicious as it cools. A combination of canned beans gives the dip body and creamy texture, and minimizes the need for sour cream and mayonnaise. Serve with fresh vegetables (such as carrots and celery) and crackers.
