Cheesy, Creamy Artichoke Dip!

Heat oven to 375F

2 pkgs (16 oz) Philadelphia cream cheese
1 can  artichoke hearts
1/4 c parm cheese (Optional)
2 or 3 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 1/2 c sour cream
About 1 c shredded cheese (I use marble)
Salt, pepper & powered cayenne pepper (to taste, cayenne optional)

Drain artichokes, and chop them up in a large bowl. Microwave cream cheese until soft (NOT melted), and mix into bowl. Add spices, parm, garlic, sour cream, and about 1/4 c of the shredded cheese, mix well.
Put mixture into a casserole dish (I prefer a deep one, so it's more to 'dip' into).
Top with remaining cheese.

Bake for about 20 minutes, or until bubbling.

Again, this is a guideline! Make it your own! Add a different soft cheese to the mixture (Asiago cheese is amazing!), add crab, shrimp, or spinach!

My hubby and I attacked it before I got a picture...


  1. That looks sooooo good! Actually looks quite a bit like my MIL's crab dip, minus the crab :)


  2. Oh my gosh, I love the ideaR of putting crab in there! MMMMMMmmmm!!!!
