12 servings (serving size: 2 1/2 tablespoons dip and 2 baguette slices)

This artichoke cheese dip is just the thing when you hanker for a creamy, cheesy snack. And because you are likely to have the ingredients on hand in the fridge and freezer, it's also great for impromptu entertaining.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°.

Step 2

Place garlic and onion in a food processor; process until finely chopped. Add 1/4 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano and next 4 ingredients (through pepper); process until almost smooth. Add artichoke hearts; pulse until artichoke hearts are coarsely chopped. Spoon mixture into a 3-cup gratin dish coated with cooking spray; sprinkle evenly with remaining Parmigiano-Reggiano. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes or until thoroughly heated and bubbly. Serve hot with baguette.

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

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.

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 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!

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!

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

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