Delicious Spinach and Artichoke Dip

The perfect holiday appetizer!  This Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip is warm, cheesy, and delicious!

Preheat the oven to 400°F and set the rack in the middle position.

Heat a pan over medium heat. Add butter and garlic; sauté for 1 minute, careful not to burn the garlic.

Remove any excess liquid from spinach and add to the pan. Rinse and drain the artichoke hearts and add to the pan. Give the artichoke a rough chop before adding to the pan or simply break them up with a spatula while sautéing. Cook for 3-4 minutes until spinach and artichoke are heated through. Once done, turn off burner and set aside.

In a large bowl, add sour cream, mayo, cream cheese, parmesan, mozzarella, salt and cayenne pepper. Mix to combine with a rubber spatula and set aside.

Add the spinach and artichoke to the large bowl with the cheese mix. Stir to incorporate.

Empty the spinach/artichoke and cheese mix into an oven safe baking dish and bake uncovered at 400°F for 15-20 minutes until bubbly hot.

Serve hot with toasted pitas, baguette, pretzel rods or crudités.
